MTV teases with ‘X-Men,’ hails ‘Hunger’

– “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” earned the prize for best film at Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards, besting even top Oscar winner “12 Years a Slave.”

“Hunger Games” stars also took home some of the night’s biggest awards. Jennifer Lawrence won best female performer, and Josh Hutcherson was voted best male performer.

But it was summer movie teasers, including “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” that dominated the live ceremony hosted by Conan O’Brien.

Zany award categories were also in abundance. Zac Efron earned best shirtless performance while properly accepting his award shirtless.

Among other winners of the popcorn-shaped prizes at the 22nd annual awards ceremony were Mila Kunis, best villain for “Oz the Great and Powerful”; Channing Tatum, trailblazer award for “Jupiter Ascending”; Jonah Hill, best comedic performance for “The Wolf of Wall Street”; and Rihanna, best cameo performance for “This is the End.”

Best kiss went to Emma Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and Will Poulter.
