ADVERTISEMENT: Top Ten Most Memorable MTV Movie Awards Moments of 2011

by | May 25, 2012 | Comments

When the MTV Movie Awards kicked off in 1992, Terminator 2 swept the top categories. It was a fitting start for an awards show that has since served as the offbeat, fun-loving alternative to the formal redcarpet events of the fall and winter. Not surprisingly, this anything-goes attitude has led to some pretty memorable moments. Check out our picks for the top moments of the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, and get amped for the 2012 Movie Awards, airing live on Sunday, June 3rd at 9/8c on MTV.

Jason Sudeikis Loses Taylor Lautner

Last year’s emcee, Jason Sudeikis, kicked off the awards with a nod to the Hangover series: the panicked host has lost Twilight golden boy Taylor Lautner after a night of partying. With two hours to go until the show, he frantically attempts to locate Lautner, leading him through a montage of the top movie moments of that year — including a compromising scene featuring a scantily clad Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman and, moments later, a very unhappy James Franco, whose arm is pinned underneath a boulder. He finally locates Lautner, and they get ready to hit up the awards — but not before they both stop in on Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis one last time. Hey, priorities.

Host Jason Sudeikis Opens the Show

A tuxedo-clad Sudeikis opens the show, and the famously crude comedian quickly proves his outfit is just about the only thing he’s cleaned up for his hosting gig. From cracking that Schwarzenegger fathered every audience member in the balcony section, to calling out Selena Gomez for sucking face with Justin Bieber (he jokes that her mouth must be full of baby teeth), Sudeikis proves that nothing, and nobody, is off limits.

Jim Carrey Dons a “Cutting-Edge” Green Screen Suit

For once it was Jim Carrey’s suit — not his infamous grin, zany laughs, or quick one-liners — that took center stage. Presenting the Foo Fighters, Carrey wore a cutting-edge chroma-screen suit that projected moving images (including a repeating vignette of two dogs humping each other). But he couldn’t help himself from signing off with one of his signature quips: “Foo can be pretty nasty stuff, so we should all be glad someone’s fighting it.”

Justin Timberlake Gives Mila Kunis A Good Boob Squeeze

Those Friends with Benefits stars sure know how to heat up the rumor mill. After assuring the audience that they’re “totally platonic” friends, Timberlake’s hands head straight for Kunis’s boobs — where they remain for a solid 10 seconds. That is, until Kunis ups the ante, venturing a little, um, further south. Our real question: how does Timberlake’s fiancé Jessica Biel feel about this show of “friendly” affection?

Justin Bieber Wins Best Jaw-Dropping Moment for Never Say Never

Justin Bieber didn’t just win the best jaw-dropping moment last year — he also created the highest decibel one. Funnymen Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, and Nick Swardson announced Bieber as the winner for Never Say Never, and then proceeded to punk the audience by bemoaning Bieber’s absence. Surprise! Enter a cooler-than-cool Biebs from stage left, decked out with a blue blazer and shades, totally bringing the house down.

Jason Sudeikis Performs Movie Theme Songs He Wrote

Comedian/actor Sudeikis attempted to prove himself as a triple threat by performing some theme songs from the year’s movies that he claimed to have written. These gems include a noise, rather than actual words, to celebrate Brooklyn Decker’s prominently featured assets in Just Go With It; an ode to “skinny Seth Rogen” who “lost weight for the Green Hornet” (rejected, Sudeikis confides, for its too-literal interpretation); and a theme song about the Karate Kid culminating in a gong. Don’t quit your day job!

Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner Kiss

The Best Kiss category took an unexpected turn after costars — and real life couple — Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson ascended the stage to accept the award. The notoriously shy Stewart even seemed prepared to enact the kiss, but Pattinson declined, announcing: “There’s someone in the audience who I think will appreciate it more.” This kiss was not to be bestowed on a shrieking Twihard — instead, Pattinson’s onscreen rival Taylor Lautner was the lucky (if unexpecting) recipient.

Reese Witherspoon Accepts 2011 MTV Generation Award

When the accomplished Witherspoon took the stage to accept her Generation Award, the elegant actress proved that she comes with a healthy dose of Southern sass. After thanking the audience, she reminded them: “It’s possible to make it in Hollywood without a reality show. And when I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape you were embarrassed, and you hid it under your bed.” In the event that chastened viewers were still intent on being bad, Witherspoon closed out her acceptance speech with some sage advice: “If you take naked pictures of yourself, you hide your face, people!”

Alexys Nycole Sanchez Wins Best Line From A Movie

The poised, pint-size actress from Grown Ups charmed the crowd by thanking her friends, family, manager, and God — and then made themlaugh by reviving the line that earned her win: “I want to get Chocolate Wasted!” (Hint: it pretty much means what you think it does).

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Wins Best Movie

There was no good reason that Gary Busey was inside a plastic bubble when he announced the winner in the Best Movie category. But hey, why let a simple thing like logic stand in the way of a good gag? Much less surprising than the announcer’s, err, receptacle, was the category winner: The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. And when much of the huge cast piled onstage to accept the honor, they proved that — under the right circumstances — even vampires and wolves can get along.
