4. The World’s Most Awkward Best Kiss Acceptance Speech
Get More: MTV Shows
It’s perhaps unsurprising that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson won the Best Kiss award (Twilight, natch), but my goodness, was it ever an uncomfortable moment. Robert couldn’t be at the show, so Kristen had to accept the award solo—which she didn’t seem entirely thrilled to be doing. She attempted to get her Snow White and the Huntsman co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron up on stage with her; when that failed, she appealed to her Twilight co-star Taylor Lautner; and finally, she ended up making out with herself instead. Awwwwkard.
5. Josh Hutcherson’s Golden Popcorn Dreams
Some may be wondering how The Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson won the award for Best Male Performance over Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 50/50 and Ryan Gosling in Drive, but his acceptance speech was so genuine and enthusiastic that it’s hard not to love him here. From his initial response (“Oh my god! I’ve wanted to hold a Golden Popcorn since I was, like, four years old!”) to his acknowledgement of the awesomeness of the other nominees (“It’s insane, too, because every single one of those actors I admire and want to be, so to even be up here is blowing my mind right now”), he’s adorable from start to finish.
6. Emma Stone’s Trailblazer Award Roast and Win

The “Trailblazer Award” is a little nebulous in terms of what it actually means; we love Emma Stone, though, so we’re still happy for her! We’re also positively rolling, re: the “tribute video” featuring such stars as Steve Carell, Mila Kunis, and Octavia Spencer that preceded her win. It was perfectly in line with her wacky sense of humor; and then the acceptance speech she followed it up with? Sweetest thing ever. Wise words indeed. What’s not to love? Congrats, Emma!
