Now, I may be biased because I am a huge fan of Samuel L. Jackson, but I enjoyed this movie awards show than any since 1994. Jackson was a host with a lot of charm and humor (especially in the "Dawson's Creek" spoof and his conversation with John Travolta). Of course the "Best Male Performance" and "Best Female Performance" awards are robberies, but watching "The Making of Leonardo DiCaprio's Acceptance Speech" with Andy Dick as the director and everybody having been beat up on the set was priceless. Makes you wonder how MTV knew Leo would get it. Hmmmmm. Other than that, I wasn't too p***ed "Titanic" won (although I'm a "Good Will Hunting" fan myself), and the rest of the awards were pretty fair. I was glad to see Lifetime Achievement Award winner Clint Howard get the recognition he deserves (I was also happy to see his family, include famous director/actor brother Ron in the audience), and was happy to see that the Best New Filmmaker Award is still a very respectable award that shows that MTV is somewhat serious with the ceremony. Bravo all around!
