Burbank, CA – April 9, 2016 –

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” won “Movie of the Year” at the 25th anniversary edition of the “MTV Movie Awards,” held tonight outdoors for the first time ever on the Warner Bros. Studios backlot in Burbank, CA.  More than 2,000 screaming fans and Hollywood’s hottest turned out to see hosts Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, performers Ariana Grande and Halsey, and many, many more take the stage to honor the year’s fan-favorite films and stars.

 

 

The “2016 MTV Movie Awards” built on the show’s reputation for wild and visually stunning moments.  Hosts Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart entered through the crowd on a flaming “Mad Max”-style war rig, escorted by an entourage of drum-pounding war boys.  Ryan Reynolds received a surprise serenade by hip hop legends Salt-N-Pepa of their classic “Shoop” – featured in his film “Deadpool” – as he accepted the award for Best Comedic Performance.  And comedy trio The Lonely Island kicked it old school in half-buckled overalls for a medley of MTV Generation Award-winner Will Smith’s greatest hits.

The evening also included exclusive sneak peeks at highly anticipated films “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, ”Captain America: Civil War” and the world premiere of the Blitz Trailer for “Suicide Squad.”
