I’m just going to come right out and say it: The MTV Movie Awards are not quite what they used to be. Not only does everyone know the winners, allowing most of the losers to not even bother showing up; those who do win always end up being highly undeserving of the award thanks to the scary-large amount of little kids out there who rock the vote. In the few minutes that I did watch, here’s what I saw: Andy Samberg ripping off Billy Crystal’s Oscar bit; Ashley Tisdale winning “Breakout Female Performer of the Year” for High School Musical 3; Hayden Panettiere swearing a lot to show that she’s all grown up now; and Miley Cyrus winning for Best Song over A.R. Rahman‘s “Jai Ho” from Slumdog Millionaire, and Bruce Springsteen‘s song “The Wrestler” from The Wrestler. These few brief moments were so painful to watch, it was literally all my little heart could take, bless it so. I’ve recorded the ceremony, so I can watch the rest later with the ability to fast forward through anything so bad that it has me tempted to inflict self-harm as a valid alternative.
While the show may be unbearable to most, they do at least show a handful of new clips and trailers from some of the year’s biggest upcoming movies, and those, my friends, I am nothing but happy to share with you here!
Click over to the other side for all the MTV Movie preview action you can handle.
Here are MTV’s exclusive MTV Movie Awards movie trailers, as promised. First you shall see a new one from the always-exciting world of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Next up, a progression piece which starts with a new look at Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which will give you a good idea at how it’s done. After that, you’ll get the first big look at the mega-sequel that is The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which very badly wants to be Harry Potter. Then you’ll finish it off with a new look at G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, which may surprisingly look just a little bit better after watching New Moon… just maybe. Sorry, Twilight-fanatics, it’s just hard to see how good these first two videos are and then think New Moon looks good as well. Jacob Black does look pretty adorable in puppy form, though.
Enjoy your meal!
