The 2016 MTV Movie Awards proved that award shows don’t have to be live for things to get weird. MTV has decided to pre-record the awards to save themselves from any crazy celebrities pulling any funny business (AKA Miley Cyrus.) Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson were this year’s hosts and were hilarious as ever. The highly anticipated movie “Suicide Squad” released it’s third trailer and fans were going crazy. The movie is set to premiere on August 5th and it features some all-star villains like The Joker and Harley Quinn.
Some major awards of the night were won by The Force Awakens, which won Movie of the Year, Straight Outta Compton, which won Best True Story, and by Leo DiCaprio and Charlize Theron who won Best Male and Female Performance. Everyone’s favorite Melissa McCarthy won Best Comedic Genius award, and her speech was hilarious yet heartwarming. She stated, “I may be the first woman to win this award, but I am certainly not the first one to deserve it. I am only here because Carol Burnett, Jane Curtin, Phyllis Diller, Whoopi Goldberg, Teri Garr, Madeline Kahn, Lucille Ball, Gilda Radner, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Diane Keaton, Tracy Ullman, Bette Midler, Lily Tomlin, and my mom … taught me not to fear being the butt of the joke, taught me not to worry about being likable or perfect, and to lovingly go for the kill.”
Ryan Reynolds took home Best Comedic Performance for Deadpool and used his thank you speech to make every woman in the audience and watching at home jealous. He said that everything he does is to make her (Blake Lively) laugh. Ug.
MTV’s most anticipated award is usually Best Kiss, because ever since Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams reenacted their iconic kiss from the Notebook, the audience is always dying to see if anyone can one up them. Rebel Wilson and Adam Devine took home the award this year for Pitch Perfect, but it wasn’t as impressive as some past years winners.
All in all, everyone who you thought would win did, there weren’t many surprises and we still don’t know how this award show works. Do people vote? Is there an Academy like the Oscars? I guess we’ll never know.
