The 2011 MTV Movie Awards will take place this Sunday night, and in anticipation to the big event, we have compiled a photo gallery looking back at the night that was the 2010 MTV Awards. Last year’s show was hosted by Parks & Recreation star Aziz Ansari, while this year’s show will be hosted by his NBC colleague, Jason Sudeikis of SNL.
Looking back at the awards last year Twilight Saga: New Moon took home a vast majority of the awards, four of the 12 awards of the night — for best movie, best female performance (Kristen Stewart), best male performance (Robert Pattinson), and best kiss (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson). In addition, Pattinson won an award for being a “global superstar,” a new award last year. This year, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will be up for nomination, and if the same fans vote overwhelmingly on MTV.com, it will likely be a repeat this year with the same franchise dominating.
Other highlights on the show last year included MTV honoring Sandra Bullock with the “generation award” and then making headlines by locking lips with Scarlett Johansson. This was also one of Bullock’s first live appearances on television following her public separation from her ex-husband Jesse James. As for tomorrow’s show, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are expected to present at the Movie Awards with Steve Carell, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, Jason Segel, and Jesse Eisenberg handing out Golden Popcorn statuettes.
In addition, Emma Watson will present an exclusive clip for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. MTV also recently sat down with Jim Carey, who said that he was going to wear a “cutting edge” ensemble. “I’m wearing a suit that I’ve had made,” he told MTV. “It’s the latest in nanotechnology, so I’m able to project whatever I want on it. I’m going to be revealing that at the MTV [Movie] Awards. This is something I’ve created myself; I’m kind of Bruce Wayne in that kinda way. I have a lot of interesting and very cutting-edge technology that I work with and I want to unveil it at the Awards.”
