The MTV Movie Awards have been on a continuous decline for several
years now, and this year's awards ceremony was no exception.
Gone are the entertaining days where comedians came in casual attire and staged humorous skits (i.e. Jim Carrey), and here to stay are the days where talentless stars like Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton are actually meant to be interpreted as serious, accomplished actresses. Yawn...
This is not the Oscars, folks, so here are some recommendations: leave the dresses at home, and show us your finest jeans and shirt. If you win, don't go in to some long-winded speech about how you are so thrilled to win. I mean, c'mon, it's an MTV award, which are basically handed-out at their discretion just to get you in the audience and boost their ratings. And lastly, ditch the red carpet and aftershow coverage: we've all seen what happens when a celebrity expands their ego at too early of an age, and Dakota Fanning or Paris Hilton have nothing enlightening or intelligent to say pre or post awards ceremony.

I saw these MMA's today (yes, muy tarde) and must say I was pleasantly
surprised at the quality of the show. Was it the dark lit stage or the
host...no, wait, it was because there were frigging proper celebrities
around to present/give out awards. Comparing it to the 2006 MMA's which
I saw a couple of days ago shouldn't even be allowed, it's a totally
different league. Most of the awards went to the rightful winners, but
Lindsay Lohan is one over-hyped, over-publicized & talked about and
definitely uber under-talented ho. Her receiving the best female
performance award was too big a slap on the face. The Cruise/Holmes
award thing didn't fool anybody, it was merely an excuse to see if he
kisses her or something...which by the way never happened. Loved
everything else though...memorable moments by Dustin Hoffman (who
convinced everybody that people over 60 don't have to be "old"), the
best kiss winners, Samuel L., and some wicked wicked singing and
drumming from Foo Fighters. All in all easily above my expectations,
especially considering recent (and sadly future) MMA's. Known and
respected movie stars, a great host, funny parodies of movies and many
Don't be fooled by the shockingly low ratings here on IMDb (who the hell voted anyway), the 2005 MMA's have just improved the overall terrible streak of MMA's for the last 5 odd years.

With the exception of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes thing. This awards show was really enjoyable. The Batman spoof and the Star Wars spoof were really funny. Not to mention Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson doing there teachings on how to be a playboy. Jimmy Fallon was hilarious and in my opinion and should be doing the awards every year. Cause he's a natural. All the people who won awards really deserved it. From Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller, Dakota Fanning, and Jon Heder (aka Napolean Dynamite). And who will ever forget the best kiss award. There was just a good vibe in this years awards. All the high-fives or low-fives to the guests around the stage was awesome. The music - Mariah Carey, Eminem, and Foo Fighters. A tribute to the Breakfast Club. Just a good awards show all together!
I'm sure everybody has seen at least an MTV Movie Awards, so you know what to expect from it: those funny parody movies, lots of celebrities, cool bands, etc. Frankly MTVMA has been in a downfall for over 3 years know so don't expect anything amazing out of this one. Sure it has some nice parts but if you add those so called "nice parts" you end up with about 20 minutes of a good show. This leaves a whole hour of senseless speeches and a very dubious presentation of a certain number of movies. Personally I'm outraged to see Lindsey Lohan win over Hilary Swank, "even a blind man could see" that Lindsey Lohan can't act and can't possibly out-act an Oscar winner. Don't even get me started on those award speeches, if people find those things funny these days then that means that I'm from planet Venus, literally. I mean, if those celebrities knew that they would be presenting or winning an award they could at least spend 10 minutes at home making a decent speech for those who have a +100 IQ. To conclude I want to say that this show was really bad except for those 20 minutes mentioned earlier which, quite frankly, make the hole show worth it. If you're a Lindsey Lohan fan say YES to the awards, if an Al Pacino (or any Oscar-winning actors) fan just say HELL NO! (unless you have a lot, and I mean A LOT of free time)
