2010 MTV Movie Awards: Hey, At Least Ken Jeong Was There

As I mentioned last night when I wrote about the new Scott Pilgrim vs. the World clip, I didn’t watch a moment of the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. For one, I had better things to do — and yes, that includes watching the Chicago Blackhawks take one step closer to bringing home the Stanley Cup (sorry, readers from Philadelphia). On the other hand, there’s something painfully uninteresting about the MTV Movie Awards. It’s an awards show the epitomizes the concept of “selling out,” leaving no room for credibility among its tween pandering. It’s the Special Olympics of the movie awards circuit, where everyone leaves with a trophy no matter how slow they are. As someone who (often) takes film seriously, I would argue that the MTV Movie Awards aren’t even worthy of being called “Movie Awards.” They are more or less the “Things 12-Year Old Girls Think Are Cool Awards.”

Which brings us to this year’s winners. Lots of Twilight: New Moon here — I’m sure Summit will proudly display that popcorn statue next to the Best Picture Oscar they won for The Hurt Locker — and some Harry Potter love. Also, it’s nice to see even the worst movies of last year — namely Obsessed and Ninja Assassin — finally get that recognition they so desperately deserve. See where I’m getting the Special Olympics analogy?

The only highlight worth noting is the fact that Ken Jeong was in attendance. Not only did he win an award for “Best WTF Performance” (which I’m told is being considered by The Academy for next year’s Oscars), he also ended up out-dressing both Katy Perry and Christina Aguilera. See the image at the top, or those I’ve included in the gallery at the bottom of the page.
