This year Kanye West toasted all the douche bags for the very first time. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson locked lips, and so did Scarlett and Sandra. You just never know what's going to happen at an MTV awards show. But now, at least, you know when they're going to happen, as we've just announced our 2011 schedule.
The 20th annual MTV Movie Awards will air live on Sunday, June 5, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) from Los Angeles.
The 28th annual MTV Video Music Awards will air live on Sunday, August 28 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).
And, in its first move outside of New York City, the sixth annual mtvU Woodie Awards will air live for the first time ever on Wednesday, March 16, at 12 a.m. (ET/PT) on MTV, MTV2 and mtvU from the Austin Music Hall in Austin, Texas, during the South by Southwest Music Festival.
"We are thrilled to plant the MTV flag early for next year by announcing our 2011 dates for the biggest and most influential nights in music, the VMAs and Woodies, as well as Hollywood's most outlandish evening of entertainment, the Movie Awards," said Stephen Friedman, general manager of MTV. "We can't imagine a better place for the 2011 mtvU Woodie Awards than Austin, a city that is synonymous with great live music and recognized as one of the country's most dynamic college towns."
So where will the Movie Awards and VMAs be held? Which celebs will be walking the carpet, handing out awards and competing for Golden Popcorn and Moonmen? You'll have to stay tuned, because we'll have plenty of news in the months to come. For now, mark your pop-culture calendars — who knows what will go down in 2011?
