The 2016 MTV Movie Awards held on April 9, 2016 and the broadcast was aired on Sunday April 10th. The event was pre-recorded at Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California and this year’s event was the first of its kind in the past 21 years. The movie: Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ bagged the big win at the awards as the movie of the year, while other movies like Pitch Perfect II, Straight Outta Compton and The Revenant also took home some other awards.
Will Smith got a big honor of the Generation Award while Melissa McCarth received the Comedic Genius Award. Ryan Reynolds won a golden popcorn statue for his box-office hit ‘Deadpool’, while Daisy Ridley won for her breakout performance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
For the first time in history, the event took place entirely outside and the hosts, Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson, were phenomenal, with a Mad Max-style entrance clad in leather get-ups and face masks while riding on their very Fury Road desert cars. They soon segued into a more traditional monologue setup. It was a memorable entrance even though some people think it was slightly disturbing.
