Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, stars of the summer film, The Other Guys, were suspended above the stage for the Best Villain Award, won by Tom Felton for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Best Fight went to Beyonce vs. Ali Larter for Obsessed.

Other performances included Christina Aguilera and Katy Perry with Snoop Dog. The star-studded presenters included Zac Efron, Justin Bieber, Samuel L. Jackson, and Tom Cruise (as himself) with Cameron Diaz, who co-stars in the upcoming Knight and Day.
