MTV Movie Awards 2007 Winners

MTVAward.jpgWell the MTV Movie Awards came and went, and with less of a flourish and impact than last year I think. They've also produced some surprising results. Results which show the popularist vote even more than normal.

Here are the nominees and results so you can see for yourself.

Best Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
Blade of Glory
Little Miss Sunshine

Richard: What? Best movie, and out of that lot too? What happened to the rest of the excellent releases that year, and even so up against 300 and Little Miss Sunshine?

Best Villain: Jack Nicolson, The Departed
Bill Nighy, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Meryl Streep, The Devil Wears Prada
Rodrigo Santoro, 300
Tobin Bell, Saw III

Richard: Okay, I'll go for this one, although Nighy is a very close second none of the other names there are strong enough to keep up.

Best Performance: Johnny Depp, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Will Smith, The Pursuit of Happyness
Gerard Butler, 300
Keira Knightley, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Jennifer Hudson, Dreamgirls
Beyoncé Knowles, Dreamgirls

Richard: Oh dear, definitely not in that film he wasn't. It's riding on the coat tails of the first performancs there and I think that it should have gone to Dreamgirls or perhaps Will Smith. Tell you what though, why is Knightley in there?

Breakthrough Performance: Jaden Smith, The Pursuit of Happyness
Abigail Breslin, Little Miss Sunshine
Emily Blunt, The Devil Wears Prada
Justin Timberlake, Alpha Dog
Columbus Short, Stomp the Yard
Lena Headey, 300

Richard: I'm surprised Timberlake didn't take this one, but then there's a cute kid involved so...

Best Comedic Performance: Sacha Baron Cohen, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
Will Ferrell, Blades of Glory
Emily Blunt, The Devil Wears Prada
Ben Stiller, Night at the Museum
Adam Sandler, Click

Best Kiss: Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
Marlon Wayans and Brittany Daniel, Little Man
Mark Wahlberg and Elizabeth Banks, Invincible
Columbus Short and Meagan Good, Stomp the Yard
Cameron Diaz and Jude Law, The Holiday

Best Fight: Gerard Butler vs. "The Uber Immortal", 300
Sacha Baron Cohen vs. Ken Davitian, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
Jack Black & Hector Jemenez vs. Los Duendes, Nacho Libre
Uma Thurman vs. Anna Faris, My Super Ex-Girlfriend
Will Ferrell vs. Jon Heder, Blades of Glory

Richard: What? Out of all the amazing fights in the film they pick this one? Wasn't this just more of a single spear throw with the Uber Immortal doing nothing but getting his men to fire a million arrows at him? Some fight. What about the many other great fight sequences in the film?

Best Summer Movie You Haven't Seen Yet: Transformers
Rush Hour 3
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Evan Almighty
Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix
I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry
The Simpsons Movie

Richard: No surprise and a worthy win.

...and Mike Myers took the MTV Generation Award. For the other awards see the MTV movie awards site.

What do you think of the awards? I have to say I'm not that enthralled by the choices there, as you can see by my comments. Are there some you don't, or wholeheatedly do, agree with?



Thanks for making my morning, I just loved reading your side comments! LOL

Just think about the demographic of MTV Richard, no offense to those who love MTV of course - I am not one of them anyway. :)
