Shailene Woodley and “The Fault in Our Stars” rule at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards

Last night, the 2015 MTV Movie Awards were held, with Amy Schumer given the hosting duties (hopefully in preparation for one day hosting the Oscars) and a wide variety of films up for honors. Frankly, it was a better group of nominees than usual for MTV. That being said, the winners more or less were who you expected them to be. Luckily though, the most successful film of the night was The Fault in Our Stars, which happens to be a phenomenal movie, in addition to being pretty MTV friendly. That’s a win/win situation for this particular awards show, if you ask me.
I usually don’t pay too much attention to this awards show, but over the past few years, they’ve been doing a better job with their nominations. A lineup for Movie of the Year (their Best Picture slate) this time around was American Sniper, Boyhood, The Fault in Our Stars, Gone Girl, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Selma, and Whiplash. Give or take a title or so here, that would represent the sort of diverse lineup that some have suggested the Academy needs to strive for with Best Picture at the Oscars. They’ll never tilt that far towards the blockbuster/mainstream, but for a lesser body like the MTV Movie Awards, it’s a pretty respectable lineup.
In terms of their winners, they mostly came up with strong choices. The Fault in Our Stars took Movie of the Year, while Bradley Cooper won Best Male Performance for American Sniper and Shailene Woodley took Best Female Performance for her role in The Fault in Our Stars. Woodley was also given the Trailerblazer Award and shared Best Kiss with her costar from The Fault in Our Stars Ansel Elgort. Robert Downey, Jr. was given the Generation Award and Meryl Streep was awarded Best Villain for her work in Into the Woods. Those were the “prestige” winners of note, while you can also applaud Channing Tatum winning Best Comedic Performance for 22 Jump Street. It’s hard to not be at the very least satisfied with those picks.
On the flip side, this is still the MTV Movie Awards, so there were plenty of wins that were iffy at best, or just catered to teenagers. They’re not worth getting into, as you’ll see them below in the full list of victors, but they don’t dominate the lineup like they might have […]

MARVEL’S ANT-MAN :30 Sneak Peek at Brand New Trailer!

A :30 sneak peek at the brand new trailer for MARVEL’S ANT-MAN, starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Douglas premiered during tonight’s MTV Movie Awards.
The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ ‘Ant-Man.’ Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Peyton Reed directs Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ with Kevin Feige producing and Louis D?Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Edgar Wright and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. The story is by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish and the screenplay is by Adam McKay & Paul Rudd. Marvel?s ?Ant-Man? delivers a high-stakes, tension-filled adventure on July 17, 2015.

2015 MTV Movie Award nominations are more respectable than usual

Yesterday, the MTV Movie Award nominations were announced for 2015. Normally, that’s not the sort of thing that I care even a little bit about, but lo and behold…the films and performances cited happen to be far more respectable than normal. The nominations were led by The Fault in Our Stars, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Neighbors, which each came away with 7 citations. There also happened to be multiple nominations scored for Boyhood, Gone Girl, Selma, and Whiplash, among others. This will never become any kind of noteworthy precursor, for sure (especially when it happens after the Oscars are already held), but hey…a step in the right direction is a step in the right direction.
Let me be perfectly clear, there are still plenty of terrible choices here, but the overall list is far better than you’d ever expect it to be. In fact, aside from an obvious bent towards some teen centric movies, this more or less resembles what a number of precursors with a mainstream tilt look like. It’s not inconceivable that in the next year or so these awards will gain a small measure of respect. Think closer to the People’s Choice Awards as opposed to even the Golden Globe Awards, but hey…it’s a start. Every awards show needs to start somewhere, right?
Sure, you could focus on the nominations for things like Annabelle, The Boy Next Door, Horrible Bosses 2, The Maze Runner, The Other Woman, The Purge: Anarchy, and The Wedding Ringer, but why do that? They also went for all of those aforementioned Oscar contenders, so that’s where the focus should be. This isn’t a nomination list to pay too much attention to, but a quick glance does give you a bit of confidence that the next generation of filmgoer isn’t solely concerned with YA franchise adaptions.
Here now is the full nominations list for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards:
Movie of the Year
American Sniper
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1
Guardians of the Galaxy
Gone Girl
The Fault In Our Stars
Best Female Performance
Jennifer Lawrence – The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1
Emma Stone – Birdman

Miles Teller – Whiplash
Channing Tatum – Foxcatcher
Best Scared-As-S**t Performance
Rosamund Pike – Gone Girl
Annabelle Wallis – Annabelle
Jennifer Lopez – The Boy Next Door
Dylan O’Brien […]

Jimmy Fallon passes on hosting next year’s Oscars

By Sean O’Connell It’s a coveted gig. And yet, despite rumors that he’d be interested, Jimmy Fallon confirmed today that he will not be hosting the Academy Awards earlier next year.
“I’m not going to do the Oscars,” Fallon told Matt Lauer during a “Today” show interview. “I was honored to be asked by the Academy, but it’s not my year.”
That’s unfortunate. Fallon has been an eager and energetic host for the MTV Movie Awards and the Primetime Emmys. Granted, those shows aren’t quite the event that the Academy Awards turn out to be, but they are good training grounds for the Oscars, and Fallon appeared to pass “the test” with flying colors.
So Academy President Tom Sherak is back to square one. There’s time. This is nowhere near as dire of a situation as when Eddie Murphy dropped out of the hosting position in support of his producer Brett Ratner during a particularly turbulent time in last year’s preparations.
So if not Fallon, then whom? Would you like to see Oscar go back to a familiar face? Or like they did with Anne Hathaway and James Franco (or considered with Murphy), would you like to see them go in a completely different direction? When we last opened this up for discussion, the name we heard suggested over and over again was Emma Stone, who has proven herself a winning presenter at previous awards shows (including the Oscars).
Does she have what it takes to host? Let us know your thoughts.

Russell Brand set to host MTV Movie Awards Russell Brand has been pretty successful, although controversial, in hosting the MTV Video Music Awards, so he seems like a good choice to take on the MTV Movie Awards.
Brand will reportedly be hosting the awards show that will take place at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City on June 3rd, states Previous hosts for the show have included Jason Sudeikis, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake.
“This MTV Movie Awards will be more impressive than ‘The Avengers’ and you won’t have to wait an hour for someone to Hulk out,” Brand said about hosting the show.
Do you think he’s a good choice?

MTV Movie Awards nominees announced The nominees for the 2012 MTV Movie Awards have been announced and it looks like ‘The Hunger Games’ just might score a few awards.
‘The Hunger Games’ and ‘Bridesmaids’ ended up earning eight nominations each while the ever popular ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’ only managed to get two nominations, states All three will be competing for Movie of the Year.
However, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart did manage to score a nomination for Best Kiss which will still have them pitted against ‘The Hunger Games’ as Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson were nominated for their lip lock.

Taylor Lautner unable to escape “Twilight,” Robert Pattinson

By Kim Palacios Poor Taylor Lautner. Despite showing up to an MTV awards show sans the “Twilight” crew, Lautner’s brief black carpet interview with MTV correspondent James Montgomery focused on a question about Robert Pattinson. Lautner was attending the awards as a presenter, and to promote his new movie, “Abduction,” which releases on September 23rd. But, before he could get a word in edgewise about his film, Montgomery questioned Taylor about his ubiquitous “Twilight” co-star.
“I don’t know if you kissed, or were kissed by Mr. Robert Pattinson…” Montgomery began, alluding to a moment shared by Pattinson and Lautner at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. It came during an acceptance speech by Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, who won yet another “Best Kiss” for “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.” Taylor Lautner was a nominee for the same award, for a kiss he shared with Kristen Stewart for the same movie. As a joke, Pattinson ran into the crowd and planted a kiss on Lautner.
“I was definitely kissed by [Robert Pattinson],” Lautner clarified, as Montgomery continued for precious seconds along those lines, leaving no time for Lautner to speak about his upcoming film.
The irony endures. Pattinson’s kiss during the MTV Movie Awards seemed an attempt to recognize Lautner for his work in the “Twilight” films, given repeated MTV Movie Awards nominations (and repeated losses to none other than Pattinson himself). Yet, even months later, it seems that Pattinson’s gesture has given the press more excuses to grill Lautner about Pattinson. Let’s hope that the release of “Abduction” gives Lautner some of the solo recognition he deserves.

Reese Witherspoon accepts Generation Award from foul-mouthed Robert Pattinson

By Sean O’Connell Reese Witherspoon received the annual Generation Award during Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards (man, do I feel old now), but it was her “Water For Elephants” co-star who stole the show with a well-time F-bomb during his introduction.
“I didn’t cut you out, but I did f**k you,” Robert Pattinson said, making a joke of how he was cut from Witherspoon’s “Vanity Fair” when they worked together years ago. “It’s not always a bad thing to have sexual chemistry with your mother.”
But Pattinson’s verbal gaffe led to a great response from Witherspoon once she got to the mic.
“After two kids, you’re the best motherf***** in Hollywood,” the legal blonde joked.
Outside of jokes, Witherspoon actually had sage advice for young viewers, stating (thankfully), “”I just wanna say to all the girls out there that… it’s possible to make it in Hollywood without a reality show.”
Hell yeah! Thanks, Reese.
