The stars were out in full force Sunday night to celebrate movies, mirth and shameless promotion at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Rebel Wilson, who made a grand entrance in a pink, custom-fit "Iron Man-gina" armor suit, and a fiery opening musical number with an assist from her "Pitch Perfect" co-stars.
With winners determined through online fan voting, the "Golden Popcorn" trophy honors the usual film categories such as Movie of the Year and Best Male/Female Performance, but also not-quite-traditional cinematic honors like "Best Scared-as-S**t Performance," "Summer's Biggest Teen Bad A**" and "Best Shirtless Performance."
"Marvel's The Avengers" took home three awards, including Movie of the Year. Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston and director Joss Whedon also accepted the award for Best Fight for the climactic battle between Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Loki, the Chitauri and a nuclear missile. Hiddleston later returned to the stage to accept the award for Best Villain, taking a moment to specifically thank Liam Payne of the British boy band One Direction for recently naming his new puppy "Loki."
The Golden Popcorn for Best Male Performance went to Bradley Cooper for his star turn in the comedy "Silver Linings Playbook." Cooper also accepted the Best Kiss trophy for his cinematic smooch with co-star Jennifer Lawrence, who was a no-show at the ceremony.
Not just fit for hosting duties, Rebel Wilson took home the trophy for Breakthrough Performance for her scene-stealing comedic turn as Fat Amy in "Pitch Perfect." Wilson and her castmates -- Anna Kendrick, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Alexis Knapp, Ester Dean and Hana Mae Lee -- also won Best Musical Moment for their a capella rendition of "No Diggity."
In arguably the most competitive category of the evening, the award for Best Shirtless Performance -- an accolade widely known in the industry as the "Shirtless Oscar" -- went to Taylor Lautner for his ab-tastic role as Jacob Black in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2."
The award for Best WTF Moment was presented to Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson for the blood-soaked "Candieland Gets Smoked" sequence from Quentin Tarantino's revenge western "Django Unchained." Foxx was also honored for career achievement with the MTV Generation Award.
"Harry Potter" star Emma Watson was presented with the MTV Trailblazer Award. The 22-year-old starlet thanked her fans for their support throughout the "awkwardness" and "bad hair" of her young career.
The incomparable Will Ferrell, fully decked out in a three-piece suit made of money, accepted the Comedic Genius Award, thanking his fans and issuing an open challenge to physically fight anyone who thought he wasn't funny.
