Twilight dominates MTV Movie Awards, obviously

The Twilight Saga’s New Moon dominated the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, an awards show almost exclusively voted for by teenage girls and taken seriously by no one.

The ceremony was hosted by genius comedian Aziz Ansari, and featured exclusive sneak peeks at Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows.

The winners were as follows:

Best Movie: The Twilight Saga’s New Moon
Best Male Performance: Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga’s New Moon)
Best Female Performance: Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga’s New Moon)
Breakout Star: Anna Kendrick* (Up in the Air)
Best Comedic Performance: Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover)
Best Villain: Tom Felton (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince)
Best Fight: Beyonce vs. Ali Larter (Obsessed)
Best Kiss: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga’s New Moon)
Best WTF Moment: Ken Jeong (The Hangover)
Best Scared As S**t Performance: Amanda Seyfried (Jennifer’s Body)
Best Badass: Rain (Ninja Assassin)
Global Superstar: Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga’s New Moon)
MTV Generation Award: Sandra Bullock

OK, yes, it’s very silly that The Twilight Saga’s New Moon would be rewarded with anything, let alone a ‘Best Movie’ prize. But at least it’s part of the zeitgeist! Who in the world considers Ninja Assassin, Jennifer’s Body and Obsessed as cultural touchstones? Seriously, MTV? Are you that out of touch?

*It should be noted that although Anna Kendrick gave an Oscar worthy performance in Up in the Air, her victory is more likely the result of her co-starring role in The Twilight Saga’s New Moon.

Discuss: At least Galifianakis and Jeong are very funny guys. What are your thoughts on this year’s winners?
