2010 MTV Movie Awards

The 2010 MTV Movie Awards took place on Sunday, June 6 at the Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal Studios in Universal City, California. As with last year's sweep by Twilight, its sequel The Twilight Saga: New Moon was the big winner of the night with five awards. One of its stars Anna Kendrick won, but for her role in a different movie, Up in the Air. As with last year, co-stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson won for Best Kiss and teased the audience with the hopes of a kiss that barely materialized.

One kiss that did occur was a lip-lock between Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson, wife of Bullock's The Proposal co-star Ryan Reynolds. Bullock previously gave an impassioned smooch to her Oscar rival Meryl Streep at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards. Other highlights of the night included the rather funny dance routine by Jennifer Lopez and Tom Cruise in his Tropic Thunder persona Les Grossman.

The MTV Movie Awards have a reputation for being more hip than the Oscars, Golden Globes and the guild awards, but aren't taken seriously since the categories are silly and the winners are most often insubstantial hits. Winners are selected by viewers online or by text messaging.
