"Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" wins Movie of the Year

Watch Russell Brand's MTV Awards opening monologue in which he slags corporate America, Kanye, Michael Fassbender's penis, Charlie Sheen, himself and his celebrity marriage (etc) below. Not his finest moment, as he kept shouting "TWILIGHT! HUNGER GAMES!" in a desperate attempt to keep the audience happy. The awards show continues to pursue excruciatingly low populist taste.

Where the Awards show did impress was with Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale presenting new footage from "The Dark Knight Rises" (July 20). The footage is here; and the new TV shop that debuted is below. And here's ThePlaylist's take on the footage:

Running just under two minutes, this is a batch of mostly new footage (courtesy of Batman News) featuring lots of Tom Hardy's menacing Bane and Anne Hathaway's craft Catwoman mixed in with some older stuff, that gives another closer look at the movie without giving away any of the secrets.

Here's LA Times and EW reporting on the show and winners (listed below).
