This year’s MTV Movie Awards took place on April 13 in Los Angeles, CA. A wide variety of social media forms were used by celebrities and the media, capturing all the best moments.
Before the show began, the pre-show featured puppies dressed up and available for celebrities to take selfies with. These cute pups were dressed like Ron Burgundy from “Anchorman” and James Franco from “Spring Breakers.”
Conan O’Brien was the host, who attempted to break MTV Movie Awards records with the most amount of cameo appearances in one show. He accomplished 50 and compiled them into an entertaining video for the audience.
A four-legged celebrity, Grumpy Cat, made his way through the audience, with celebrities like Johnny Knoxville making a grumpy face and posing for a selfie with him.
One of the most popular moments was Zac Efron’s shirt being taken off by Rita Ora when she presented him with the “Best Shirtless Performance” award. Efron’s shirtless pics on stage became a social media sensation immediately after.
Channing Tatum was awarded with the Trailblazer Award, which recognizes him as an inspiring actor with a diverse portfolio. This caught the attention of other celebrities on Twitter, including Ellen Degeneres, who wittily said “Little known fact, ‘Trailblazer’ was Channing’s stripper name.”
Wrapping up the show, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” took home three awards, for Movie of the Year, Best Female Performance, and Best Male Performance.
