If there’s one awards ceremony that is the ultimate embodiment of fun, it’s the MTV movie Awards. Reading Nominee names out to the rhythm of a rockin clip is just the beginning…there’s skits, young female film stars dressed ever so lightly, and of course, awards that are voted by anyone but 80 year old tea-sippers. The 2003 MTV Movie Awards on Saturday saw Middle Earth take home top honours…
Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings : The Two Towers” took home for four awards – including best movie, best action sequence, on-screen team for stars Elijah Wood, Sean Astin and digitally-created Gollum, as well as a new honor for virtual performance for Gollum.
“Spider-Man” won Kirsten Dunst the title best actress and her and co-star Tobey Maguire the honor of best on-screen kiss. While fellow superheroine, Jennifer Garner picked up the award for breakthrough actress for her work in “Daredevil”.
Rapper Eminem was named best actor in a film, as well as breakthrough performance by an actor in "8 Mile," the tale of his early days trying to make it in Detroit’s hip hop clubs.
The MTV Movie Awards take place each year during the summer movie season and offer a good look at what the youth culture likes in films, which was personified by young Daveigh Chase who took home the award for best villain in "The Ring."
"Oh my gosh, this so rocks," Chase said on stage after grabbing her MTV statue — a bucket of golden popcorn.
Yoda got the show’s ‘lifetime achievement award [of sorts]’ for his never-ending stint in Lucas’s Star Wars world – and in particular, his fight with Christopher Lee in Episode II.
Mike Myers won the golden popcorn bucket for best comedic role as spy Austin Powers in "Austin Powers in Goldmember."
MTV added an award for best trans-Atlantic breakthrough performer, and that went to Colin Farrell in "Phone Booth."
The Awards air June 5 in the states.
