Twilight eclipses MTV awards

Sandra Bullock was kissing and telling at the MTV Movie

Awards.

Bullock, wearing a glittery black dress, received a standing

ovation as she accepted the MTV Generation Award in her first live televised

appearance since she split up with unfaithful husband

Jesse James earlier this

year.


The 45-year-old actress used her acceptance speech to clear up

tabloid rumours and even smooched Scarlett Johansson.


“No matter what you might have seen, heard or read lately, I love

what I do,” vowed Bullock, “and I’m not going anywhere.”


Bullock was presented with the show’s highest honour by her All

About Steve co-star Bradley Cooper, The Proposal co-star Betty White and

inexplicably Johansson, the wife of Ryan Reynolds, Bullock’s leading man in The

Proposal.


When asked why she was there to help hand over the trophy,

Johansson hinted that she wanted to lay one on Bullock, who awkwardly

obliged.


“Now that we have done that,” said a smiling Bullock, “can we

please go back to normal?”


Bullock was fresh off her surprise appearance at Spike TV’s Guys

Choice event in Culver City, California, but that show won’t be broadcast until

June 20.


She also received a standing ovation there when she accepted the

Troops Choice award for Entertainer of the Year, voted on by members of the

military and presented by Robert Downey Jr.


The MTV awards were presented on Sunday at the freewheeling and

often-bleeped ceremony at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California.

The Twilight Saga eclipsed the competition for the second year. New Moon sucked

up trophies for Best Movie, Best Kiss, Best Female Performance for Kristen

Stewart and Best Male Performance and Global Superstar for Robert

Pattinson.


Other winners selected by online votes included Obsessed co-stars

Beyoncé Knowles and Ali Larter for Best Fight; Jennifer’s Body star Amanda

Seyfried for Scared-as-S**t Moment; Ninja Assassin star Rain for Biggest Badass

Star; The Hangover star Zach Galifianakis for Comedic Performance; and Up in the

Air co-star Anna Kendrick for Breakout Star.
