MTV Movie Awards Brings Out the Stars

Sunday, June 6, 2010
By Kevin Crossman

The MTV Movie Awards brought out a number of Frat Pack stars who were in attendance to either vie for awards or promote their upcoming projects. Hosted by Aziz Ansari (Funny People), presenters of note included Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, The Other Guys stars including Will Ferrell, Get Him to the Greek stars Jonah Hill, Russell Brand, and Sean Combs, among others.

The personal highlight for me was an ongoing bit about Les Grossman being the producer of the show. The Tropic Thunder character was brought out of retirement by Tom Cruise and for me at least this character is still hilarious. For the MTV Movie Awards, Bill Hader also appeared, reprising his Tropic character Rob Slolom.

Later, Grossman was not impressed by an interpretive dance by Ken Jeong and Ed Helms from The Hangover. So, he decided to dance instead…

Gotta say… Tom Cruise can dance really amazing well. He stayed right in step with accomplished dancer Jennifer Lopez even while wearing all that make-up!

Lots of funny stuff from all the presenters. So, overall, this year’s MTV Movie Awards was a pretty good time - even if you can’t stand Twilight (like I do…).

    Jason Segel’s bit with Miranda Cosgrove bombed so badly.

    Also, someone greenlight a Les Grossman movie right now.

    RIGHT. NOW.

    Yes! A Les Grossman film would be great.

    Yeah, the Segel bit didn’t work (and the Rudd/Carell one was okay but too short). The Other Guys seemed to at some respect to be obvious but some of Wahlberg and Ferrell’s comments were hilarious.

    Thinking more about it… Segel already has a problem being viewed as creepy, and I’m not sure sharing the stage with a teenager (albiet one who looks very grown up) was the best choice.

    Disclaimer: *I* don’t think Segel is creepy.

    OT: Did anyone catch the Ferrell/Wahlberg clip during the National Spelling Bee? Ferrell tries to spell a word and Wahlberg was the one giving him the word as a definition and putting it in a sentence. Will was pretty funny as in old-fashioned Will funny.

    Kevin, say what? I’ve not heard that one about Segal. I never saw him as the creepy type.

    P.S. Rudd and Carrell look like brothers.

    Am I only one that Aziz Ansari introduced him as Russell “Bland”? Probably an honest mistake or friendly joke or a typo on the teleprompter (or he’s practicing to play a Japanese speaker learning English haha).
