In just over a week, we’ll be adding yet another epic liplock to the long line of MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss winners, as two lucky celebs will take the stage to be honored for their glorious on-screen success at snogging. And in case you were wondering what it takes to make it in this highly competitive category, look no further than this video: a tongue-touching, face-sucking, lip-mashing mash-up of all the winning kisses by our pals over at NextMovie. (Warning: Professional stuntkissers. Do not attempt.)
So, what makes for a winning smooch at the Movie Awards? Well, for one, it helps if one of you has fangs—the makeout-happy Edward and Bella are all over this clipfest, thanks to their multiple wins for the various “Twilight” films. But without a vampire participant, it’s best to go for a same-sex snog: like Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair in “Cruel Intentions,” Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger in “Brokeback Mountain,” two of NASCAR’s finest in “Talladega Nights,” or even the reluctant dudes from “American Pie.” And if all else fails? It’s time to amp up the technique and go for some full-on face eating—which you can do figuratively (“Dumb and Dumber”), and also literally (“Species”), although shoving your alien lizard-tongue through the back of your kissee’s head is not generally recommended, because nobody wants to collect a “Best Kiss” award alongside a carcass.
