Heath Ledger won Best Villain last night at the MTV Movie Awards, but he was in the minority: Most of the awards went to tween fare, with Twilight snagging three, High School Musical 3 grabbing two, and Miley Cyrus winning one, E! reports. Jim Carrey and Amy Poehler were the only actors to join Ledger as winners from “grown-up” movies, while Ben Stiller won the MTV Generation Award.

Adult antics were on full display, though, from a musical medley of “Jizz in My Pants,” “I’m on a Boat,” and “Dick in a Box” to host Andy Samberg awkwardly attempting to flirt with Megan Fox. Upcoming blockbusters including the next additions to the Harry Potter, Twilight, and Transformers franchises were also previewed. For the full list of winners, click the link below.
