Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards saw Jennifer Lawrence and Shailene Woodley become the big winners in 2014. Lawrence can call the night a huge success because the MTV Movie Awards gave her the “Best Female Performance,” while Lawrence’s movie, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire grabbed movie of the year.
Jennifer’s co-star Josh Hutcherson also got his own popcorn-themed statue for “Best Male Performance.” It seems as though teen novels based on dystopian futures were all the rage over the last 12 months, considering that The Hunger Games battled it out with Divergent.
Fans were definitely torn between Lawrence and Divergent‘s leading lady, Shailene Woodley. While Jennifer managed “Best Female Performance,” Woodley netted the award for “Favorite Character.”
The MTV Movie Awards may have been dominated by Tris Prior and Katniss Everdeen, but there were other big winners as well; The Wolf of Wallstreet was also quite popular among the MTV denizens.
The Movie Award for #WTF moment went to the film’s male lead, Leonardo DiCaprio, while Jonah Hill took home the “Best Comedic Performance.” During his acceptance speech, Hill made it clear this was an award that actually was rather important to him, even if it wasn’t on the caliber of something like an Oscar.
“I used to watch this awards show at home with all my friends,” said Hill, grasping his golden popcorn.
One of the best moments of the entire MTV Movie Awards show came when official host Conan O’Brien announced he had combined the “Best Kiss” and “Best Fight” categories into one.
O’Brien then unveiled a video of himself and Will Arnett doing battle while simultaneously blowing kisses to one another. The actual winner of the “Best Kiss” trophy went to young up and coming Will Poulter for his turn in We’re The Millers.
Poulter’s scene where he alternates learning how to kiss with Emma Roberts (his fake sister in the film) and Jennifer Aniston (his fake mother) brought down the house.
Other MTV Movie Awards winners included Jared Leto, who took home the “Best Onscreen Transformation” for his part in Dallas Buyer’s Club. Leto made the trek to the show straight from the Coachella Music Festival and, during his acceptance speech, asked if anyone could give him a ride back.
Once a relatively small and overlooked awards show, the MTV Movie Awards has made the big time.
