MTV Movie Awards: Winners and losers

When official awards season is over, celebrities and fans can’t wait for the movie industry’s badass rock ‘n’ roll cousin, the MTV Movie Awards, to take place.

And the non-winners are:

If you’ve been nominated for the MTV Music Awards, your cool factor just went through the roof, even if you lose. There were a couple losers but they weren’t the nominees.

Creepy animated cats. What do weird, scary looking cats have to do with transitioning between nominees? Exactly. They were distracting — and not in a good way.

Boy hats. Johnny Depp’s hippie/musician/cowboy hat was just kind of annoying. Adam Sandler’s baseball hat and T-shirt made him look like he was going to hang out in the laundromat all day. And Josh Hutcherson’s hat is just unacceptable, period. A guy that hot should never wear a dorky little Mr. Magoo hat.

Charlize Theron’s fight scene. Eh. Conceptually, this was a strong idea, but the delivery kind of fizzled. The little hair toss afterward was a bit much. We liked the hair toss better when Beverly D’Angelo did it while threatening Aunt Edna in the first National Lampoon’s Vacation movie.
