2008 MTV Movie Awards

I really despise the MTV Movie Awards. It's a fabricated awards show that really means nothing and is used purely for the promotion of Hollywood's blockbusters to the teenage MTV demographic. But alas, here we are, on the eve of this year's big show. The best part is that I'm amazed anyone even cares about these movies still. How many people even remember Transformers or Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End?! We're already in the thick of this summer season and I'm pretty sure no one really cares about the big blockbusters from last summer. Seriously MTV, get with it! Anyway, if you truly care to check out the list of who won, here is the full list of winners from the 2008 MTV Movie Awards.

Best Movie:

Best Male Performance:
Will Smith in I Am Legend

2008 MTV Movie AwardsBest Female Performance:
Ellen Page in Juno

Breakthrough Performance:
Zac Efron in Hairspray

Best Comedic Performance:
Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

Best Kiss:
Briana Evigan and Robert Hoffman in Step Up 2 The Streets

Best Villain:
Johnny Depp in Sweeney Todd

Best Fight:
Sean Faris vs Cam Gigandet in Never Back Down

Best Summer Movie So Far:
Iron Man

We all know that Transformers deserves some honor for its visual effects, especially considering it got robbed at the Oscars, but still, this win doesn't mean much. It's also great to see Ellen Page win, but we knew that was coming, too. As for the other categories, I seriously don't even care.

I care nothing for the awards show, but at least the did away with pre-taping it. In the internet era, it had to be one of the dumbest ideas ever when CNN is reporting the names of the "winners" before the show even airs. So kudos, at least, for doing it live again. I really had no idea the show was even on tonight. I just kind of stumbled across it and decided to watch. As expected, the awards portion was lousy. But at least some of the sketches in between were good. Ben Stiller trying to make a viral video with Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. was funny. RDJ totally sold it.

Will Smith as best actor is, quite possibly, the most absurd thing I've ever seen posited.

I watch award shows for the reaction shots. MTV sorely disappoints with reaction shots. I want to see what everyone else is emoting. I like to watch people eat too.

You missed Seth Rogen and James Franco pulling out a "fake" bag of marijuna and then lighting a "fake" joint well actually you couldn't see anything because as soon as Seth held up the bag of weed MTV cut to a long shot of them on stage. I get your point but the thing that's nice for the show is that it's based on fans. I watched the show when I was in high school and I assume that is still their main demographic. I think you get to a point that you outgrow the show but then again I feel like I'm too old for most of the stuff on MTV so why is this any different? You forgot to mention that they showed a Twilight clip that had everyone going crazy.

Nobody cares about who wins. But the show was pretty funny. The tropic thunder skit was hilarious.

"Best Summer Movie So Far". That has to be one of the most idiotic categories ever.

"MTV Movie Awards Winners - Does Anyone Really Care?" No. on Jun 2, 2008

It is a useless award show. It a big infommercial for Movies coming up and movies from last year. The fire should burned the Amphitheatre during the show, now "THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT".

Scorpio on Jun 2, 2008


I quit watching the full thing years ago.................................... Now I just watch some of it

The highlight was the reunion of Wayne and Garth, that was really all that the show had going for it.

The show was pretty awful. But Alex, I think we are missing the point. The nominees are a joke that no one cares about but it IS fun to see a laidback award show with celebs about just doing funny things. This year though wasnt that funny at all. The Stiller-Black-Downey Jr. skit was very good though.

Tom Cruise presenting Adam Sandler with that "Lifetime, Icon, BLAH BLAH" Award was absolutely nauseating. I understand it was SUPPOSED to be funny, but did anyone bother to tell the writers that? Tom Cruise makes me hurt.

Andrew on Jun 3, 2008


I would much rather watch an award show where the winners are decided by the fans & not some movie exec. / douchehead. Most of you are haters & followers. Monkey see, monkey do. F#*k the oscars!

Sinner on Jun 3, 2008


i don't care about any awards show. they're all pointless. they have nothing to do with what the actual people think.
