Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart won Best Male Performance and Best Female performance individually, and were honored together for Best Kiss. When they accepted the award, Pattinson said he "didn't feel like" kissing his co-star (and off-screen girlfriend), then proceeded to head into the audience to plant one on Taylor Lautner instead.

Another beloved film franchise, the "Harry Potter" series, earned an award for Best Villain (Tom Felton, for playing Draco Malfoy in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1").

Reese Witherspoon was honored with the annual Generation Award, which was presented to her by Patrick Dempsey, Pattinson and Chelsea Handler. Clips from her body of work, including "Legally Blonde," "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Walk the Line" were played on a screen above the stage.

She joins previous Generation Award winners Sandra Bullock, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey.

Other awards went to Emma Stone (Best Comedic Performance for "Easy A"), Justin Bieber (Best Jaw-Dropping Moment for "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never") and Chloe Grace Moretz (Best Breakout Star and Biggest Badass Star for "Kick-Ass").

Jason Sudeikis, the show's host, kicked off the hijinks-filled ceremony at Gibson Amphitheater by starring in his own version of "The Hangover" in which he went in search of Lautner. Justin Timberlake and Chelsea Handler were among the other stars who appeared in the segment.

Fans also got sneak peeks throughout the ceremony at a few hotly-anticipated films, including JJ Abrams' "Super 8," "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn."

The Foo Fighters, Lupe Fiasco and Trey Songz performed during the ceremony, which was broadcast live on MTV. Presenters included Timberlake and Mila Kunis (who groped one another before presenting the night's first award), Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Shia LaBeouf, Patrick Dempsey, Cameron Diaz and Selena Gomez.
