Awkward Moments: An MTV Movie Awards Special

shia-awards

I’ll preface this caption by saying that I love and champion this dude for life, Transformers 2 looks awesome and I think he’s very handsome but watching Shia Labeouf  nervously hide his bad hand as he presented an award just made me want to give him a bear hug, a glass of milk and some Teddy Grahams.

Kristen and Robert accept their award passionately

Here we have Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart baiting fans a with the promise of a live kiss between Edward and Bella as they won the night’s Best Movie Kiss Award.  They seemed to have worked out some clever English routine that included her turning him in the middle of their moment. Fueling rumors of on set passion and making teen girls across America swoon while the boys across America gag. Still can’t figure out how Paul Rudd and Thomas Lennon suffered defeat in this category.

Lori Petty gets a DUI

2009filmindependentspiritawardsarrivalsspy7crqubqjl Lori Petty gets a DUI

“Point Break” star Lori Petty was arrested for suspicion of  D.U.I in Venice, Ca early Sunday morning. She was booked into a Los Angeles bail and posted $100,000 bail shortly thereafter. The rumor mill is turning and it seems that Petty may have ran into a skateboarder while driving under the influence.

If  Hollywood were the boy scouts, then getting a D.U.I would be like a merit badge. It makes no sense to me why you’d risk your life or someone else’s when you catch a cab home for a nominal fee. Poo Poo on you if the police’s suspicions are correct Lori.

Susan Boyle suffers emotional breakdown

Can you blame her?

Susan Boyle, gigantic singing sensation who was awarded second place onBritain’s Got Talent yesterday, has suffered an emotional breakdown and is currently getting rest at a private clinic in London.  This comes a day after Boyle was named runner-up in a competition that many thought she would claim.

Boyle has gained worldwide fame and has been showing signs of exhaustion because of it.   Rumor had it that she planned on dropping out of the famed British talent contest because of the immense pressure she was feeling.  Apparently, it’s all catching up with Ms. Boyle.

Britain’s Got Talent released this statement:  “Following Saturday night’s show, Susan is exhausted and emotionally drained. She has been seen by her private GP who supports her decision to take a few days out for rest and recovery … We offer her our ongoing support and wish her a speedy recovery.”

Let’s hope Boyle has a speedy recovery.  The British tabloids wait for no one.

MTV Movie Award Awkward and Great Moments III

Danny and Will pet the dead kitties

I defame most things but it’s hard to touch Danny Mcbride or Will Ferrell because I think they are the cat’s meow. However with that in mind, the euthanasia bit they did with the dead kitties was one of the most awkward funny moments of the night. Up until Jim Carrey accepted the his award for best lead in a comedy and did a voice over bit that was pretty hilarious.

Hayden panettiere and the chewing gum guy

Hayden Panettiere gave an expletive filled presentation with Chewing Gum Rapper Big Pack that was remniscent of Natalie Portman’s digital short which was classic. Hayden cursing was rough because she is so sweet. She saves dolphins, she would never drop an f-bomb right?

Kristen Stewart is an clumsy as Bella

Twilight won almost 90% of the Popcorn Awards handed out tonight. And everytime we were forced to watch Kristen or Rob squirm through speech after speech. The icing on the vampire cake was when Kristen came up to accept the award for Best Female and the poor thing fumbled through her speech while Cameron Diaz stood semi shocked in the background. Then Kristen drops the award on the floor and Cameron rushes over to pick it up for her. After Kristen confirmed her awkwardness and stumbled away, I decided it was time to air out my feelings of awkwardness on this dear site.

Billy Bob Thornton’s daughter charged

Billy Bob Thornton

TMZ reports that Amanda Brumfield, oldest daughter of Billy Bob Thornton has been charged with child neglect in the death of a 1-year-old she was babysitting.

She  told cops the child died in October after falling from her playpen, but a spokesman for the Ocoee Police Department said that her story didn’t add up.

An autopsy determined the child suffered a fractured skull and a subdural hematoma due to blunt trauma. Brumfield told police that after the baby had fallen, she discovered her tongue bleeding, so Brumfield cleaned it with a paper towel. She then says she began playing with the child, feeding her bananas and fruit snacks, and said she was “happy” and playful.

Brumfield then said she laid the child on the couch next to her and fell asleep. She says was awoken sometime later by the phone and decided to take the child back to the playpen. When she lifted her, Brumfield told cops she discovered her body was limp.

According to police, the call for help didn’t come until two and a half hours after the original fall. Brumfield is Thornton’s child with his first wife, Melissa Gatlin. Billy Bob released a statement earlier today to TMZ:

“Mr. Thornton is estranged from Amanda and has had no contact with her for quite some time, however when informed about this situation he commented that, ‘Anytime a baby’s life is lost is an unimaginable tragedy and my heart goes out to the baby’s family and loved ones.’”

Awkward moments at the MTV Movie Awards

I got a chance to watch the awards early and man it turned out to be the most awkward award show of all time.The image you’re looking at above is Sasha Baron Cohen’s ass staring at Eminem’s mortified face. His alter ego “Bruno” flew high above the Gibson Amphitheater donning angel wings and a jock strap to present an award that Zac Efron would go on to win, but not before the wires holding him up malfunctioned and he was conveniently thrust into the audience crotch first into the face of Eminem. There seemed to be plenty anticipatory time for Eminem to stand up and get out of the way, but yet a face full of butt he received. Although he and his crew seemed pretty peeved, I call scripted.  Eminem, MTv and Bruno all stand to gain a ton from the publicity blitz that will follow this messy incident.

That moment would only prove to be one of many awkward moments that we would blessed with upon viewing this years MTV Awards.  I shall chronicle some of these moments in my next few posts. Yikes.
