The Twilight Saga: New Moon took a bite out of the MTV Movie Awards with five golden popcorn prizes, including Best Movie, at the live televised event in Los Angeles, hosted by comedian Aziz Ansari, June 6.

Known for its wild antics and irreverence, the show included send-ups of films and showbiz. The opening featured a skit with a reprise of Tom Cruise's performance as Les Grossman from Tropic Thunder as the show's producer, in a recurring role culminating in a musical number with Jennifer Lopez.

Other ‘Twilight' wins were Best Kiss for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, Best Female Performance: Kristen Stewart and Best Male: Robert Pattinson who also took the Global Superstar prize. Scenes from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows were also previewed.

Winners were selected from fan's votes for favorites.

Other prizes were presented to:
• Best Breakout Star: Anna Kendrick for Up In the Air
• Best Comedic Performance: Zach Galifianakis for The Hangover
• Best WTF Moment: Ken Jeong for The Hangover
• Best Scared-as-Sh**t Performance: Amanda Seyfried for Jennifer's Body
• Best Badass Star: Rain for Ninja Assassin

The Generation Award, recognizing an iconic actor, was presented to Sandra Bullock by her co-stars Betty White from The Proposal and Bradley Cooper from All About Steve, as well as Scarlett Johansson. It was Bullock's first televised appearance since the Oscars.

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.
