Best of the bleeps at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards

From host Aziz Ansari’s opening parody of "Precious" to Peter Facinelli’s F-bomb-strewn Best Movie acceptance speech on behalf of the "New Moon" cast, the MTV Movie Awards was packed with moments both riotous and raucous. Here are some of the highlights that kept viewers buzzing - and the censors reaching for their bleep button.

  • "Hangover" star Ed Helms performs the movie’s touching “Doug” ballad, with co-star Ken Jeong doing an interpretive dance in a tiger-print leotard that struggles to conceal what he bared in the hit comedy.
  • As "Tropic Thunder’s" movie exec Les Grossman, Tom Cruise gets thunderous applause for his showstopping number with Jennifer Lopez (looking uncannily like Charo). The two bust a move and booty slap to her hit “Get Right,” bringing the audience – including Cruise’s beaming wife, Katie Holmes - to their feet.

  • During the Best Kiss presentation, "Get Him to the Greek" co-stars Russell Brand and Jonah Hill engage in a hilariously sloppy, grope-filled smooching session prompted by the Kiss Cam.
  • After winning the Best Kiss award, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson tease the audience by pretending that they are about to plant one on each other. Um, didn’t they do this shtick last year?
  • Presenting Sandra Bullock with the Generation Award, Betty White tells the actress she’s a huge fan – then confuses all of her film credits, saying she loved Bullock as an amphetamine addict in "Speed" and as Stevie Wonder in "The Blind Side." When Bullock takes the stage in a daring backless number, White warns, “Honey, don’t ever wear that dress backwards.”
  • Standing in for her husband, Bullock’s "The Proposal" co-star Ryan Reynolds, Scarlett Johansson tells the Generation Award winner she thinks Reynolds and Bullock also should have won Best Kiss because their lip-lock looked so soft. She finds out for herself when Bullock grabs her face and lets her have it.
  • "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" star Aubrey Plaza gives the censors a workout while announcing the nominees for Best WTF Moment: “Megan Fox, I have always wanted to [bleep] you. And when you threw up on Amanda Seyfried in 'Jennifer’s Body,' it made me want to [bleep] you more,” she said. “Wherever you are tonight, I’m going to find you, and [bleep] you.”
  • "The Other Guys" stars Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell hang around – literally – for "Harry Potter" actor Tom Felton's Best Villain acceptance speech. When Felton thanks his girlfriend, Wahlberg, pretending to be sick of being suspended in the air, hurries him along by blurting out, “Are you serious? Come on! This ain’t the [bleep]-ing Oscars!”

    I don't really care about mtv or behavior meant to shock for shock's sake but I did happen in on the awards show and Tom Cruise was great and as SJ is wonderful anyone kissing her is lucky. How could you resist?

    Why the heck did they kiss like that??I agree with one of the other comments. It is out of character for Bullock and SJ. It was not necessary and looked just plain aweful. You can tell they were not comfortable with it. We are not all gay you know!

    Sandra's image has often been one of being a little silly. Heck, I remember seeing Dean Martin give Sammy Davis Jr. a kiss once. It's just silliness. If you're offended, lighten up. Besides, it's MTV for heaven's sake. You had to expect something silly and off of the wall!

    That woman-to-woman kiss is uncalled for. I have two granddaughters that,while they're growing up, are seeing more and more of this stuff on TV. Woman-with-woman, man-with-man weddings, sometimes on daytime TV. Somebody help me, for there's a lot of explanation to do to kids 4, 6 years old at this tender age. SANDRA, you've always been one of my favorite actresses since the movie "WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING"... but now, I'm confused as my granddaughters are !!!!

      In 2010 you are confused? I would say that children of ages 4 and 6 have no business watching MTV – especially late at night. MTV is infamous for this kind of thing. You have explaining to do because you allowed underage grandchildren to watch TV. There is a button on your remote that allows you to change the channel or turn it off.

    • hobbiman


      It is not a question as of Sandra kissing Scarlett, it is the matter of why are you letting your 4 and 6 yr old watch the MTV music awards to begin with. Seems to me thier are two many people in this world that want everyone else to raise thier kids for them. The fact of the matter is there are lesbians and gay men in this world and you will never be able to hide your grandkids away from them. Instead of sheltering them from such horrors as you make it out to be why not use this to explain to them thier are people in the world that are different. I have a 4 yr old daughter that knows first hand that people are different and not to judge them for what they are, she has a lesiban cousin and knows it is okay to be different then society's standards.

      Somebody help you?... You're confused? I would say so if you think that MTV programming is appropriate for children ages 4 and 6! I will agree that a lot of programming on TV is losing standards and inappropriate for young audiences, but if you don't want to have to explain these subject matters to your granddaughters you should think about what programs you're allowing them to watch in the first place.

      Although I can understand that some people might be uncomfortable having that conversation with little kids, I am wondering – why are you letting a 6 year old watch soap operas (I'm assuming that's what you meant by daytime TV) or the MTV award shows? It's rated TV-14. TV shows & movies have a rating for a reason – if you're uncomfortable having a conversation with your kids about a subject matter, then you're probably letting them watch a program/movie that is too advanced for their age.

    • wordup

      Um.. you let a 4 and 6 year old watch MTV music awards?!? I am sure you had to explain more than just the kiss between Sandra and Scarlett. I think is awesome that Sandra did that. None the less it shouldn't matter who is kissing who these days. Instead of pointing fingers at TV for showing it, perhaps you need to be less lazy and censor what your kids/grandkids are watching. My parents never let us watch a movie or TV without watching it first. You can read TV guide or info. of the show you are watching (from most cable companies) and it give you a description of the show. Live TV is obviously different, but you can choose not to watch when the children are present, you can watch a replay of it later.

      Madonna, Britney Spears and Christina Aquilera had lip lock a few years back during the MTV awards. The show goes for this sort of thing. Nothing wrong with this as it is only a publicity stunt. Even if it weren't a publicity stunt so what. This is the 21st Century and adults are free to explore other ways of loving people.

    I kind of enjoyed the show. It had a few moments but for the most part it was terrible. Aziz did a good job and some of the presenters were good. What I didn't like were the couple of preformances that I saw, Katty Perry and Christina Agulera(Spelling?) were horrible, not only was the music vomit inducing the stage show was terrible too. I really couldn't believe the amount of cuss words that didn't get censored, that was something I actually enjoyed since I love screw ups. Oh and I do have to say the all out love-fest for that crappy series known as Twilight was too much to handle, that scene they aired made my fiance and I lol because we thought it was a joke but it turned out to be a real clip.

    I really enjoyed the show. It was really entertaining. And I'm really happy for all the awards that "New Moon" took home. (I'm obsessed with anything related to the series).
    But Kristen Stewart needs to get some freaking confidence and get over her "shyness"... It was so akward seeing her speak. She needs to come with terms with the fact that she famous and her fans lover her. She needs to learn to own her popularity and make the most of it! She says she loves her fan but her body languange and demeanor implied the total oppossite! I understant her dislike for the paparazzi and what not, but does she have to look so uncomfortable in the spotlight all the time?

      Yeah, I kind of agree with you. I didn't see the show either but ever since Madonna and Britney Spears shared an onstage kiss it seems to be the popular thing to do. Why? Seems dumb to me. And, like you, I have nothing against gays and lesbians and am all for them being able to get married, have and/or adopt kids, etc.

    • Kate

      I don't agree – she is still young and growing as a person. She may be an actress but that doesn't mean she has confidence in a live setting. Some actors are more outspoken then others....it's who they are – if she is a quiet withdrawn person – then accept her as such. Madonna has always been who she is going back to her teens. She didn't develop into the person she is now – it's WHO SHE IS. She's outspoken and attention seeking. People pay money to watch her act in a movie – end of story – we don't pay her to see who she is as person in reality. Nor is it our place to judge and/or criticize her personally.

      Twilight sucks! Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattison, Taylor Lautner, they are all bad actors and no one else wants them in a movie. Otherwise, why would they be doing twilight? It's just for emo/goth teenagers.

    I have nothing against lesbians or gays but I think it was a bit out of character on Sandra's part to make out with Scarlette. IDK... I didn't watch the show so maybe if I did I'd understand it better, but still, it just seems strange.

    • mike

      yeah, it was a little strange, but totally hilarious because of the setup. For those that didn't see the show, the recap here leaves out the build-up. So Betty White, Bradley Cooper, and Scarlet came out together to do the honoring of Bullock, and both White and Cooper had a bunch of stuff to say. Then they turn to Scarlet, and ask if she'd like to say anything. "No... no, I'm good." So it came off as really weird that she was there if she wasn't going to say anything. Then they showed a montage of Bullock's movies, and brought her up on stage. She thanked White & Cooper, and didn't have anything to say to Scarlet, so she was just like, "How's it going?" or something. Then toward the end of her speech she said something to the effect of "okay, Scarlet – I love you, but why are you here? This is really awkward." That's when Scarlet said she was there in place of Ryan, and edged closer. Then they kissed, and it all came together. It was pretty entertaining to watch – not sure if it comes off that way to read it.
