No one in Hollywood was safe from skewering as Russell Brand hosted the MTV Movie Awards today, including the comedian himself!
The British funnyman drew attention to Kim Kardashian's blooming romance with Kanye West in the wake of her 72-day marriage. Before he could be accused of being hypocritical, however, Russell also cited his own 14-month marriage to Katy Perry.
"Tonight, I'm gonna keep my eyes peeled for my next wife," said Russell.
One couple safe from scathing was Twilight sweethearts Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart who won the Best Kiss award for the fourth consecutive year.
With eight nominations, The Hunger Games tied with Bridesmaids for the most nods of the night. The action movie's young stars Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence went home with Best Male and Best Female Performance awards, respectively.
Later, Emma Stone accepted the first-ever MTV Trailblazer Awards after a hilarious video package featuring Steve Carell, Mila Kunis, Anna Ferris, Jim Carrey, Jason Sudeikis and Octavia Spencer who feigned hatred for the actress.
As a film veteran, Johnny Depp has also blazed a few trails in the movie business, but he originally aspired to be a rock star. The actor got to exercise his musical talents, jamming with The Black Keys just before accepting the Generation Award, presented by Areosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry.
