These days, everybody is giving out end-of-the-year honors to the same old names: Streep, Penn, "Benjamin Button" and the like. But there's only one place where you'll find the Other Awards, our annual salute to the good, the bad and the bizarre.
By our count, the MTV Movies team sat through more than 200 films in 2008, all in our dutiful commitment to bring you the very best in movie news. And much like 2006 and 2007, we witnessed a lot of things that were memorable for a whole host of reasons. From 'roid-raging cows to martial-artist golden showers, from bloopers to bad acting, here are our most unforgettable movie moments of the past year.
