MTV Movie Awards 2007

The MTV Movie awards aired yesterday, June 3, 2007, and there are no words for how boring it was. Sarah Silverman was a mediocre host and save for the few laughs from a couple of highlights the show was a snoozer.

Sarah Silverman opened with a skit about her being in her apartment and forgetting that she has a show to host. She hops on her “transformed” dog and rides through the air to get to the awards show. Along the way, she meets with Johnny Knoxville who blows her off when she asks to try her bit on him. In her opening monologue, she talked about famous vaginas and railed on Paris Hilton. Poor Hilton, it was obvious that she was uncomfortable (you know they had to cut to her while she was being dissed) but put on the best face she could. Actually Paris Hilton was a favorite target since she had to turn herself in the next day to serve her jail time.


Jessica Alba came out wearing this red number that can only be described as a cross between a dress and a parachute. I know that she is a pretty girl, but for real, that doesn’t mean you can just wear anything.

Jack Nicholson won an award for Best Villain. Congratulations to him … but what the heck was he saying. I don’t even think he knows what he was saying because he rambled for what seemed like 10 minutes until he finally got off the stage.

Victoria (Posh Spice) Beckham presented an award and actually looked like she decided to eat that day.

Rihanna performed Umbrella and it was cute. She did sing over a vocal track but sounded halfway decent. I’m thinking she is taking this Good Girl Gone Bad thing to heart. At least that’s the impression she is trying to give with the Goth/dominatrix outfit (if you can even call it that) she was wearing. Nevertheless, I was entertained by her performance.

Jessica Biel presented with Adam Sandler and Kevin James. Their little skit was funny in which they were talking about first kisses. I love James on King and Queens and on Hitch. That was the first real laugh I had while watching.

Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat portrayer) and Will Ferrell won for best kiss. This was my second laugh of the night. They had a drag down, roll around on the floor kiss fest. The lead up to if was pretty funny and then I was crying, I was laughing so hard.

Sarah Silverman’s spoof on all of the popular movies out had me chuckling. I especially love when she called the Departed casts and they were all asking her about her tail and she persisted that she didn’t have one while turning to look at behind just to be sure. That whole thing was funny stuff. At the end of it she transformed into a white dress and went out to the stage. She actually looked very pretty in the dress.

Jaden Smith won for breakthrough artist, and I would not have even mentioned this; however, he taped his acceptance speech with the help of his parents. As usual, they were all in the cut acting crazy. It was funny and cute.

So they had amateur directors making spoof movies and the funnies one, in my opinion, was United 300. Supposedly it had some controversy because of the September 11th reminders but they did a great job of bringing in the comedy without being crass or distasteful. It actually won for best spoof, so sometimes people actually agree with me. Pretty funny, watch it.



Sarah came back out with this gray, baby doll dress that really made her look like a child. It wasn’t cute at all.

Cameron Diaz presented to Mike Myers for some comedian honor. She was trying to be all cutesy. From the lack of dress, it was obvious that she was trying to scream, “Eat your heart out!” to her ex-boyfriend, Justine Timberlake and his “rumored” new hot thang, Jessica Biel. I’m not sure if it worked though.

The last thing I remember is Amy Winehouse performing Rehab, which is pretty sad because I am not really feeling her vibe. She looked like she needed to eat some ribs or something.

As for the rest, I couldn’t tell you what happened.


Before I end this, I will be the first one to let you all know how much I am anticipating the release of Transformers, but I was on Transformer overload. Every darn thing was about Transformers. Talk about shoving a movie down our necks. In my oh so humble opinion, they don’t have to try so hard unless it has turned out to be a crappy movie.
