Conan O’Brien’s intro monologue featured Vine versions of nominated films The Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle, a fake award for best product placement, an original song about not singing a song, performed with Pitch Perfect’s Adam Devine and a gospel choir.
Conan O’Brien’s gigantic opening at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards was one we will never forget in a hurry, with O’brien displaying cameos from 50 stars, from Russell Crowe and Taylor Swift to Anthony Hopkins and Martin Scorsese finishing it up with himself as the 50th celebrity. “Welcome to the Satanic Cult Awards, ladies and gentlemen!” He joked in his introductory speech as reported on People.
When introducing the nominees for Best Comedic Performance, Seth MacFarlane and Amanda Seyfried had trouble delivering their scripted light teasing remarks, as Seyfried said she forgot to wear her contacts. The fun and mistake-filled segment was completed with references to cocaine and TMZ, McFarlane said, “So far, this is going just like the Oscars,” referring to his hosting in 2013.
Jonah Hill grabbed the popcorn trophy for Best Comedic Performance due to his hilarious moments in The Wolf of Wall Street. He gave a birthday shoutout and thanked a large number of people during his acceptance speech, including the This Is the End cast, Leonardo DiCaprio and his ‘Hero’ director Martin Scorsese.
21 Pilots performed their single “Car Radio,” complete with the standing audience members flaunting white knitted caps that matched those of the duo onstage.
While the habitual collaborators Eminem and Rihanna who will tour together this summer, hit the stage to perform their hit duet ‘Monster’
whilst Ellie Goulding and Zedd performed “Beating Heart” and “Find You” from the Divergent soundtrack.
Very pregnant Mila Kunis came on stage to receive the Best Villain Award for her role as the Wicked With of the West in OZ: The Great and Powerful.
Zac Efron won the award for Best Shirtless Performance for That Awkward Moment, but he was reluctant to show off his bod as the award presenter Rita Ora crept behind him and unbuttoned his denim shirt, leaving the actor to flex his muscles to the audience.

Ellen page was available to give the audience a first look at a never been seen footage of the upcoming XMen: Days Of Future Past slated for release on 23rd May, 2014.
Before introducing the best kiss nominees, the award presenters Seth Rogen, Dave Franco and Zac Efron revealed that three lucky audience members had been chosen to get a kiss from them.
A woman who posed as Rogen’s mother rushed to the stage, and viciously made out with Rogen (what a sight!). However, Will Poulter won the golden popcorn for best kiss, for the movie scene with Emma Roberts and Jenifer Aniston in We’re the Millers.
Mark Wahlberg received the Generation award that was celebrated with a hefty share of F-bombs. “I know what this really means, many people have gotten this award before … Jim Carrey, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston and many others…and do you know what they all have in common? None of them were invited back, they’re all too f—ing old! This is the ‘you’re too f—ing old to come back’ award … this is ‘you’re f—king done.” said Wahlberg, as he stared at his popcorn troph.
Josh Hutcherson won the award for best male performance for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Cameron Diaz who was presenting the award then announced that his absent onscreen colleague Jennifer Lawrence is also the winner of the best female performance award.
