MTV Awards Recap
Ah the MTV Movie Awards...well...they left me a bit perplexed. They seemed very desperate to fill time and it all just seemed a bit forced. With only 2 real live performances via Katy Perry and Christina Aguilera, it definitely felt like it was lacking that MTV style. However a hilarious (yet disturbing) part of the evening was Tom Cruise portraying Les Grossman and dancing his ASS off with Jennifer Lopez. Who new Tom had those kinds of moves? Judging from the look on Katie Holmes' face from the audience, she didn't either. The hilarious part of the night happened when the presenters, winners, etc quickly realized that the crew designated for censoring and bleeping out f-bombs wasn't quite on their A-game that night. F-bombs were flying faster than these censor guys could keep up and I counted at least 15 f-bombs put out there for all the world to here. Mostly courtesy of Twilight's Peter Facinelli. These awards get weirder and weirder every year and that's why they are like the bastard stepchild of awards season, coming in at the end. Sandra Bullock accepting the Generations Award was a class and expected move...I was happy to see her come out looking incredibly hot and seemingly in a great mood, enjoying herself again. Sandra and Betty White together was a funny and sweet moment. While Twilight took home the majority of the awards, there were a few I didn't understand, such as Anna Kendrick winning Best Breakout Star, beating out Zach Galifianakis. Sure Anna is better, but she's much more Oscar material (which she was nomintated for as well) than Zach and that typically is what the MTV crowd leans toward....the Zach type. So I was baffled by that...and judging from her speech, so was she. She admitted she wasn't "cool enough" to win an MTV award...I agree. I knew this show would turn into a Twilight-fest, as much as I'd hoped against it. I've had enough of Kristen Stewart's social awkwardness to last me a lifetime. That girl is a strange duck. Anyway, that's enough rambling about that. On to new things....hopefully some good things will "pop" up today!
