MTV Movie Awards: The Results!

So the gags are all done, the skits are all finished, and the goofiest Movie Award ceremony this side of Razzie-town has drawn to a close for another year. Last night was the first time the MTV Movie Awards had been broadcast live, and general internet chatter seems to indicate that host Sarah Silverman did a fine job overall. We could sit here and talk about the funniest speeches, the ugliest dresses or the corniest comedy sketches, but let's just focus on the movies right now. Here's what MTV (and its viewers) considers the very best in cinema from the last twelve months:
Best Movie -- Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (over 300, Borat, Blades of Glory and Little Miss Sunshine) Better than Pan's Labyrinth and Children of Men, too?
Best Villain -- Jack Nicholson in The Departed (over Bill Nighy in Pirates 2, Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada, Rodrigo Santoro in 300 and Tobin Bell in Saw 3) Yeah, no argument here.
Best Performance -- Johnny Depp in Pirates 2 (over Will Smith in The Pursuit of Happyness, Gerard Butler in 300, Keira Knightley in Pirates 2 and Jennifer Hudson and Beyonce Knowles in Dreamgirls)
Breakthrough Performance -- Jaden Smith in The Pursuit of Happyness (over Abigail Breslin in Little Miss Sunshine, Emily Blunt in The Devil Wears Prada, Justin Timberlake in Alpha Dog, Columbus Short in Stomp the Yard and Lena Headey in 300) I wonder how the kid got the gig in the first place...
Best Comedic Performance -- Sacha Baron Cohen in Borat (over Will Ferrell in Blades of Glory, Emily Blunt in The Devil Wears Prada, Ben Stiller in Night at the Museum and Adam Sandler in Click) As if this award could have possibly gone to anyone else.
Best Kiss -- Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (over Marlon Wayans and Brittany Daniel in Little Man, Mark Wahlberg and Elizabeth Banks in Invincible, Columbus Short and Meagan Good in Stomp the Yard and Cameron Diaz and Jude Law in The Holiday) Funny pick, and certainly better than any of the alternatives.
Best Fight -- Gerard Butler vs. The Uber-Immortal in 300 (over Sacha Baron Cohen vs. Ken Davitian in Borat, Jack Black and Hector Jememez vs. Los Duendes in Nacho Libre, Uma Thurman vs. Anna Faris in My Super Ex-Girlfriend and Will Ferrel vs. Jon Heder in Blades of Glory) And it's not even the best fight in the movie!
Best Summer Movie You Haven't Seen Yet -- We'll just skip this one...
