Hunger Games sweeps 2012 MTV movie awards

The cast of The Hunger Games carried home four golden popcorn awards from this year’s MTV movie awards, which turned out to be surprisingly tame. Josh Hutcherson won the best male performance while Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks won best female performer and best transformation respectively – and the fourth award? The best fight award to Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson Vs Alexander Ludwig.

What did not surprise the world is Twilight’s movie of the year win. After three years, it was only expected. Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part-I very comfortably beat The Hunger Games and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. The movie of the year award is based on the votes cast by the audience throughout the show.

Not just romance and drama were celebrated. Bridesmaids won two awards for Melissa McCarthy’s best comedic performance the leading ladies’ gut wrenching performance in the food poisoning scene. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 managed to steal two awards under the best cast and best hero categories.
