The Hunger Games scooped up four top MTV movie awards last night, nailing golden popcorn trophies for Best Female and Male Performance for stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, as well as for Best Fight, and Best Transformation for Elizabeth Banks. But The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn won Best Movie of the Year, and stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson lip-locked Best Kiss for the fourth year running, notes CBS. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows won honors for Best Cast and Best Hero. Jennifer Aniston hooverd up the award for Best Dirtbag for Horrible Bosses. Bridesmaids nailed Best Gut-Wrenching Performance, and Melissa McCarthy grabbed the Best Comedic Performance.

Johnny Depp was presented with the MTV Generation Award—its version of a life-time achievement award—after he performed "Lonely Boy" and "Gold on the Ceiling" with The Black Keys. "This is quite an amazing honor, truly. It's like the Get-Out-Of-The-Business Award, 'All right, you've done too much,'" Depp quipped. The program was hosted by Russell Brand, who skewered Michael Fassbender for showing off full-frontal in Shame, and joked about Kim Kardashian's quicker-than-the-blink-of-an-eye marriage. Of course that's a bit hypocritical, admitted the man who filed for divorce last year from Katy Perry. "Tonight, I'm gonna keep my eyes peeled for my next wife," joked Brand.
