Twilight Dominates the MTV Movie Awards

Seriously, did anyone think any film other Twilight would wind up on top at the MTV Movie Awards? The 2009 MTV Movie Awards was a total Twilight lovefest as Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Cam Gigandet, and Catherine Hardwicke all went home winners.

Other than the Twilight wins, the rest of the night was a real mishmash of things that worked and things that fell flat. Samberg’s opening skit was just okay (Hugh Jackman’s Oscar number is still the best opening bit for a 2009 award show). Bruno (Sacha Baron Cohen) flew in on white wings with his butt exposed and landed face down in Eminem’s lap, prompting the rapper and his bodyguards to leave the auditorium amid a string of curse words that, of course, were bleeped. It was a confusing bit not executed real well, and the star-studded audience seemed unsure whether it was safe to laugh at the strange spectacle. Yes, it was that kind of a night. And the Winner’s Are…

    I don’t think anyone doubted Up would rule the box office for the last weekend in May. Pixar has an impressive track record and that combined with overwhelmingly positive reviews made Up the leading contender to take the top spot over its opening weekend. Now, some considered the story of an old man tying balloons to his house and floating away to South America a more difficult sell than past Pixar releases. But riding high on good reviews and following an extensive pre-release advertising blitz, Up pulled in the third highest opening numbers for a Pixar release. Only The Incredibles ($70.5 million) and Finding Nemo ($70.3 million) had better opening weekends.

    Top 10 Films for the Holiday Weekend Ending May 31
    1) Up – $68,108,790
    2) Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian – $24,353,868
    3) Terminator Salvation – $16,433,365,
    4) Drag Me to Hell – $15,825,480
    5) Star Trek – $12,613,727
    6) Angels and Demons – $11,353,340
    7) Dance Flick – $4,743,636

    9) Ghosts of Girlfriends Past – $1,911,401
    10) Obsessed – $657,001
