1994 Movie Awards Summary
On hand to back up our insanely talented host was an equally dazzling list of performers. Bon Jovi played "Good Guys Don't Always Wear White,"Warren G. and Nate Dogg regulated as only they know how, Toni Braxton stunned on "You Mean The World To Me" and John Cougar Mellencamp delivered what should have been the show's theme song when he played "Wild Night." But let's not get carried away with music. The 1994 MTV Movie Awards may have rocked, but they were still MOVIE awards.
So who was burning up the box office in 1994? Alicia Silverstone, star of The Crush, took home two trophies, beating out everyone from Ralph Fiennes to Macaulay Culkin. Meanwhile, back in the veterans' corner, Robin Williams routed Jim Carrey, Johnny Depp, Whoopi Goldberg and Pauly Shore for Best Comedic Performance in Mrs. Doubtfire and Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones beat out an equally impressive A-list (Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, Denzel, Mike Myers, Dana Carvey and more!) as Best On-Screen Duo in The Fugitive . Hoo! Longest sentence ever. And we're not nearly done!
Clearly you sleazes will be interested in knowing that Billy Baldwin ( Sliver ) and Janet Jackson ( Poetic Justice ) took home awards for Most Desirable in their respective sexes and that Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson took home Best Kiss for their spit swap in Indecent Proposal . But nothing will interest you more than knowing that the illustrious honor of Best Song From A Movie went to Michael Jackson for "Will You Be There," as featured in Free Willy . Now THAT'S poetic justice.
Before this thing goes all the way off the deep end, let's close it with a touch of class. Tom Hanks, who won Best Male Performance for his stirring starring role in Philadelphia , stole the show with a moving speech about the importance of AIDS education. What a guy. Onward to '95!
