Jimmy Fallon passes on hosting next year’s Oscars

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: 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

HollywoodNews.com: 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 UsMagazine.com. 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

HollywoodNews.com: 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 UsMagazine.com. 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
hollywoodnews.com: 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
Hollywoodnews.com: 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.

JIm Carrey wants to auction MTV green-screen suit

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Jim Carrey stole Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards when he took to the stage in a “projection suit” made from green screen. The clothing turned the “Ace Ventura” star into a walking movie screen, upon which he decided to show special effects, explosions and two dogs making whoopee. Alrighty then!
“Traditionally, entertainers not unlike myself have tried to grab people’s attention by being outrageous, flashy or even rude for the sake of shock value,” Carrey said from the stage. “They might even go so far as to come on stage wearing a suit that is the cutting edge of chromakey technology just to show you their ‘Boing!’”
Afterwards, Carrey spoke to MTV and revealed that he’d like to auction the suit off for charity.
It was an inspired visual gag from a visually gifted comedian. What did you think?

Jason Sudeikis MTV monologue attacks Schwarzenegger, Bieber

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Arnold Schwarzenegger was the butt of several jokes as “Saturday Night Live” star Jason Sudeikis took the stage to host the 2011 MTV Movie Awards.
Right off the bat, Sudeikis gave a shout out to the fans in the balcony of the theater before commenting that, for the first time in MTV history, everyone up there was fathered by the former California governor.
Later in his monologue, Sudeikis addressed the crowd and said, “I was surprised to find so many kids this year – not as surprised as Maria Shriver though.”
Before he let Schwarzenegger off the hoof, the host joked, “You should check out [Arnold’s] next movie – Pumping the Ironer.”
But it wasn’t all Schwarzenegger jokes. Sudeikis also thoroughly embarrassed Selena Gomez by joking about her relationship with Justin Bieber, telling everyone they have been sucking so much face, she’s already swallowed three of Bieber’s baby teeth.
In all, it was a pretty good monologue, and probably the highlight of the evening.

Robert Pattinson kisses Taylor Lautner during 2011 MTV Movie Awards

By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: What would the MTV Movie Awards “Best Kiss” acceptance be without theatrics from the “Twilight” crew? Last year, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart shared a dramatic almost-kiss in honor of winning in the category. This year, when Pattinson and Stewart went to the stage to accept the award, Pattinson promptly departed to honor someone who “deserved it”—Taylor Lautner.
To the sound of cheers, Pattinson ran offstage and crossed several rows of seating until he reached a laughing, blushing, Taylor Lautner who he crawled on top of and promptly (fake) kissed.
