  • pup

    Woohoo!! So glad Jennifer Lawrence won!

  • GB

    JFC, other nominees should not even bother showing up until twilight is done.

  • alan

    you have the transformation wrong! Elizabeth won! omg

  • LD

    Kristen making out with herself was HOT!!!!! I love how she and Emma Watson were so friendly and she and Jen Law seem to be close too! All these ladies showing the crazy fandoms how it should be done! Stay classy like the ladies!!

  • dizzy

    I’m glad the HP cast won! It’s was also nice to see Jennifer win.

  • Paula

    Congrats to all the winners!!! Nicely spread around this year!

  • dizzy

    LD, I totally agree. I didn’t get to see the show and would have love to have seen these girls being friendly with each other.

  • sam

    @LD: kristen and emma hate each other…

  • TinkerBell

    i will admit that kristen and rob definitely deserved best kiss this year after there make out scene in the film

  • Lisa

    All the winners were well deserved!! Enjoyed the show!

  • Buzzlightyear

    Breaking Dawn was just a bad movie. The MTV awards are self-consciously a joke, but this is laughable. It takes stuffing the ballot box to pathetic levels.

  • r

    the last year for Harry Potter to win and it doesn’t win. I would’ve at least liked The Hunger Games to win. I’m SO sick of overrated Twilight

  • Dana

    Congrats to the winners!! Love that Twilight, Harry Potter and THG all won something!!! Dont think there is anything to complain about really!!

  • Callie

    I thought it was pretty evenly spread out really! Get over it if your favorite didnt win everything…just be happy with what you did win! They were voted for fair and square!

  • Buzzlightyear


    Yes but Breaking Dawn was garbage. The objectively worst film wins “Best Movie.” Just be embarrassed.

  • bahha black sheep

    DanRad was robbed

  • Kristen

    Yes the awards were evenly spread out, but was Breaking Dawn really better than the Hunger Games and Harry Potter? It think Harry Potter should have one best movie in its last year. Can’t wait for The Avengers to dominate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Karne

    Please MTV. Don’t ever let Kristen Stewart present an award to anyone again. Especially a well deserved and capable actress like Jennifer Lawrence. I cringed. The awards for thankfully spread out evenly. The best kiss acceptance speech was h3ll weird though. Dark Knight Rises looks EPIC!

  • Emilie

    Banks won for best transformation. lol ;)

    And “Twilight” should not have won, but that’s just me.

  • cluebot

    Jennifer Lawrence deserved that award! But not by that awkward freak whose jokes no one even laughed at. What a wierdo.

  • http://bochakuw bochakuw

    despite that sparkling vampire movie (which is gross and nonsense) I love all the movies..feel pathetic to people that had choose the sparkling vampire movie to win..
    please guy,,have some good taste..
    But I do happy with another winner (despite that sparkling vampire)
    congratulation guys,,good job..!!
    esp to Harry Potter casts..
    Thank you so much..!

  • Helen

    I’m happy with the result! All my favorites got something! I choose not to be bit*hy!

  • amanda

    overrated twilight? to be overrated something has to be good to begin with..thus it cant be overrated if it already sucks

  • Done…

    Why the fck did Twilight win? Seriously? Harry Potter and The Hunger Games were much better films and no I haven’t read the books or am a fan of the films. Also I’d take Bridesmaids over Twilight too. BTW it’s official, Kristen Stewart is a l3sbian for real.

  • jolie

    Kristen Stewart was the biggest awkward attentionwhore at the MTV movie awards this year. However I do think MTV has redeemed themselves and made a good award show this year.

  • WTF

    Why was Kristen mocking Jennifer for not being there “oh bummer” and crickets… Seriously WTF? I felt offended for Jen

  • Dave Franco

    Channing Tatum was right. Twilight was gonna sweep, and for best kiss. just to satisfy the dumb tweeners…

  • Helen

    I LOVE that Jen Lawerence and Kristen Stewart are friends!!!!!!!! Awesome people! Pity their fans are not awesome…and are just rude about one of their friends! Jeez!

  • Jackson

    Emma and Kristen together were so cute! I love that Kristen called Jennifer Jen too! They are pretty close! Kristen and Jen are actually quite similar! They are both beautiful and silly/crazy funny!!

  • claw

    Kristen is an embarassment. Stop mocking Jennifer Lawrence you freak. Jennifer won the Young Artists award at 15 and then won Venice Film festival award for best actress at 17 which you have won none. She is a better actress than you and it hurts doesn’t it? GO AWAY!

  • Kiera

    Enjoyed the show! Congrats to everyone who won!

  • iopot

    I cringed whenever Kristen got on stage and spoke. Please make sure to keep her away from the awards MTV! Also I loved Charize fake kicking Michael Fassbender’s azz. Jennifer Lawrence and Harry Potter WON! Finally!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Puzzle

    Wish Jennifer Lawrence got up on stage and kicked Kristen Stewart off.

  • Millie

    Jen and Kristen rock!! I bet Jen was delighted to get the award from Kristen! She likes her and RESPECTS her! And Vice Versa!

  • wow

    I really wish Stewart hadn’t presented the award to Jennifer Lawrence. She deserved someone sober, not drunk or on drugs, who wasn’t hungry for all the attention giving her the award. Poor Jennifer. She didn’t deserve that. What an insult MTV. Thank god she didn’t attend.

  • lita

    I love Kristen, Jennifer and Emma!!! So happy they all got something!!!!!!!

  • op

    The worst parts of the show were Charlie Sheen and Kristen Stewart. Great job MTV. Why the fck didn’t Harry Potter win?

  • rob

    I’m surprised people still actually watch this lame show. It’s always the same…Twilight wins and we get a whole lot of awkward. Awkward jokes…lame stunts and I noticed that people don’t attend unless they has something to sell or if they have won. Jennifer is on a completely different level than Kristen Stewart. She will be around in five years. Not surprised that she didn’t attend…I doubt she would want to have to sit through two hours of this schtick.

  • aloy

    Why was Kristen Stewart bouncing when she was saying Jennifer Lawrence couldn’t be at the awards?

  • http://athanasiahoran Athanasia

    Uhmmm,excuse people why didn’t harry potter win all categories? Unfairrrr so unfair.

  • 2aloy

    Beacause it too dificult for her to face a true talent women and accept that she will never win this categorie again not when facing Jlaw, emma stone. MTV was brilhant putting her to announce a an award she won in the past 3 yrs and this year she was snubbed. too bad jen couldnt be there to show that girl how to accept an award.

  • Meg

    I hate the way fans of Jennifer and emma are rude about Kristen!! It must be jealousy on the fans part because Emma and Jennifer like Kristen! There was nothing wrong with anything Kristen did last night! She was sweet and thankful and funny yet people still insist on being rude about her! Its horrible behavior and I do not think Emma or Jennifer would appreciate having fans like that!

  • Jessie

    The pis of Kristen and Josh H are so cute!!!! I love that they have stayed friends all these years!!!!

  • herbalife malaysia

    I beloved up to you’ll obtain performed proper here. The caricature is attractive, your authored material stylish. however, you command get bought an shakiness over that you wish be turning in the following. unwell unquestionably come more earlier again since exactly the similar just about very steadily within case you shield this hike.

    Breaking dawn should not have won..hunger game is better ..
