One of the best parts of summer is knowing that MTV hosts two very big, very star-studded awards shows for us pop culture addicts to get excited about. To kick off summer is the MTV Movie Awards, and last night we did just that!
While there were quite a few moments I found to be epic by MTV’s standards – Charlize Theron’s awkward interview with Kat Graham, Russell Brand’s opening monologue, etc. – my FAVORITE moment of the night came courtesy of Elizabeth Banks winning ‘Best Transformation’ for her role as Effie Trinket in ‘The Hunger Games’!
Not only was I excited that Elizabeth took home the golden popcorn, but she made her time on stage what will certainly go down in MTV history as a memorable one by bumping and grinding the cast of ‘Magic Mike’ who were there to present her with her award. Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatum, and Joe Manganiello were more than happy to oblige and a little bit of a dance, a grope, and eventually a lift backstage! Elizabeth thanked MTV for ‘this moment right here‘, and then went on to thank her husband who ‘is really upset right now, probably’.
Uh, probably, yeah! Check out my pick for Moment of the Night on MTV!
