2003 Movie Awards Summary
It all started off with a Matrix spoof... JT and Stifler botch an attempt to pick up chicks and end up down the rabbit hole at a club with a very sweaty Andy Dick. Wanda Sykes pops up as the Oracle, Will Ferrell comes in as the Architect and much breakdance fighting ensues. Were bullets dodged? Odds are good. Just another day at the MTV Movie Awards.
It wasn't just another day for Eminem Or The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers . Em picked up Best Male Performance and Best Breakthrough Male for his acting debut in 8 Mile . LOTR nabbed Best Movie, Best On-Screen Team (Elijah Wood, Sean Astin and Gollum), Best Virtual Performance (Gollum) AND Best Action Sequence (The Battle For Helms Deep). In the year of The Ring , Spider Man and Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones , that's no small feat.
The small feet came later when Yoda won Best Fight for stomping the super tall Christoper Lee. The little guy really let his true colors show in his acceptance speech, talking like a hardened gangsta and using Jedi mind tricks to stop the orchestra from cutting him short. Tough.
In other toughness, rising star Jennifer Garner won Best Breakthrough Performance for kicking ass in Daredevil . And although it looked like much less work, Kirsten Dunst got Best Female Performance for making out with upside-down Tobey Maguire in Spider Man. Rounding out a trio of fearless females, Daveigh Chase won Best Villain for growing her hair over her face in The Ring. Between the three of them they beat Halle Berry ( Die Another Day ), Kate Hudson ( How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days ), Queen Latifah ( Chicago ), Reese Witherspoon ( Sweet Home Alabama ), Kate Bosworth ( Blue Crush ), Maggie Gyllenhaal ( Secretary ), Eve ( Barbershop , Beyonce Knowles ( Goldmember ), Nia Vardalos ( My Big Fat Greek Wedding ), Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man), Daniel Day-Lewis ( Gangs Of New York ), Colin Farrell (Daredevil) and Mike Myers (Goldmember). Are there any other stars? Not that we can think of.
You probably wanna run off and download free movies or whatever it is that you do. But first, look at this list of 2003 MTV Movie Awards performers: 50 Cent played "In Da Club" and "Wanksta," not that he needed to because they were already playing on every radio ever at the time. t.A.T.U., along with about 200 dainty schoolgirls, stripped down to their underwear and frolicked through "Not Gonna Get Us" and "All The Things She Said." Pink closed it out with "Feel Good Time" and Queen Latifah made out with Adrien Brody. Not bad, huh?
