Lets face it, the MTV Movie Awards is not a real award show. It’s more a piece of badly choreographed television “entertainment” than anything else. I mean, at what other Award show does Twilight: New Moon take home five awards, and the movie Obsessed win… well, anything — EVER?
For those of you who are interested, you can find a list of winners of the 2010 MTV Movie Awards after the jump. Leave your snarky sarcastic-filled responses below.

Last week, MTV released a new television promo for the upcoming 2010 Movie Awards featuring Tom Cruise not only reprising his role as Joel Goodsen from Risky Business, but also donning the fat suit to reprise his much talked about role as studio executive Les Grossman from Tropic Thunder. Now Grossman has returned for another couple television spots where he advises Twilight series stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Watch the videos now, embedded after the jump.

It appears that Grossman was on the set of the 1983 film which launched Cruise’s career. Watch the video now, embedded after the jump.
There are a lot of Award shows in Hollywood. Some of them are serious presentations, awarding accomplishment and talent: the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes..etc. Other award shows are nothing more than pure spectacle. The MTV Movie Awards falls into the latter category. Every year we post the award winners, and every year we complain about how some tween heartthrob, this year – Zac Efron, beats out some insanely talented actor, this year Robert Downey Jr, for Best Male Performance. Or how Twilight beat out both The Dark Knight and Slumdog Millionaire to win Best Movie.
But truth is, we love to bitch about the MTV Movie Awards, which explains why I’m posting these results. It’s certainly not that we give credence to this list of winners. Any award show which gives out five statues to Twilight can’t be taken seriously. So leave your comments below. Be smart, clever, funny, and biting.
There is only one award show in the world ridiculous enough to award Twilight seven times as many nominations as The Wrestler, or twice as many as The Dark Knight, and that is the MTV Movie Awards. The 2009 nominations have been announced, and are available after the jump.

Okay may-be not. But Mike Myers and Dana Carvey reunited as Wayne and Garth for the first time in probably 15 years. The duo appeared in a new Wayne’s World segment on the MTV Movie Awards last night. They counted down the top 10 porno names based on hit movies in 2008. Watch the clip below.
I know Wayne’s World 2 was pretty bad, but watching this makes me wonder why Mike Myers is making even crappier-looking movies (ie The Love Guru) instead of Wayne’s World 3. And besides, what is Dana Carvey doing these days? But that also brings up the question, do kids these days even know who Wayne and Garth are?

Tropic Thunder Viral Video by MTV Movie Awards
The Pitch: I know we don’t give the MTV Movie Awards much credit, but each year they usually have a couple pre-taped segments which are pretty funny. This year the segment everyone is talking about involved Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr planning a vial video for Tropic Thunder. I’m not going to give too much away, but any video which has Iron Man hitting the Kung Fu Panda in the balls with a hammer is worth your time.
