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 we posted the first photos from the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows showing what happened to the surviving characters in the decades following the events of the books. Many of you have probably already read the book, and know that David Yates is filming the scenes for the last movie, employing make-up and wigs to make the actors look older. The first photos featured only a couple of the actors in character. Some new set photos have been revealed which show a couple of the other characters in action.
Obviously, be very aware of spoilers. See Snitchseeker for the photos.

USA Today released a new batch of photos from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Warner Bros has sent us high resolution versions of the photos, which you can check out below. As always, click to enlarge.
The article also hints that the upcoming films might stray a little from the books. The idea presented is that the book series is already complete, and everyone (even many of those who didn’t read the final book) already knows how everything ends. So the films will take on different focuses than you might be expecting. I’s guessing that it won’t be anything too drastically different, but it sure will be interesting.
