What a crock of shit.

Just came across it now - they gave Napoleon Dynamite the Best Movie Award ahead of Spiderman 2, The Incredibles and Kill Bill. I wanted to vomit. They also gave Lindsay Lohan Best Female ahead of Scarlett Johannsen. I did vomit.

Since  it's the MTV viewers who pick them, one can only imagine the mental acuity of the average American MTV watcher. Really, this just boggles my mind. Picking an inbred imbecile from Idaho over, for example, one of the greatest animation achievements in the past ten years is just lunatic.

I'm going to go shoot someone now. preferably Lindsay Lohan.

Ah well, at least anyone with half a brain doesn't take the MTV awards seriously. Tarantino probably switched on at home and is pissing himself laughing. Then he'll send Lindsay Lohan the severed head gasket of Herbie as a congratulations gift.

Rrrrrrr.

Yep was watching these too and vehemently agree with you.

I was also suprised at how many movie stars actually did take them seriously, well as serious as you can get with MTV. Dustin Hoffman, Samuel L Jackson, Hilary Swank, Nicole Kidman, I thought they would have had better things to do. :roll:

Yeah, Hoffman was another one. It's beneath him.

Hmmm....have u truly watched Napoleon Dynamite?


IMHO thats the most 'unamerican' movie in the selection u mentioned. Dont see the problem. Napoleon Dynamite is a great movie - very refreshingly different from the normal hollywood stereotypical script and packaging. Sure... not everyone might take a liking to it....simply because the humour is not as easy to grasp - much more postmodern subtle humour (ala the office or 'extras'). Despite the fact that they're from idaho - all the characters are brilliantly juicy (sure most will remember their napoleon from their high school), the 80s feel is encaptured in every scene of the movie (look at the mise en scene, the colours etc). Napoleon has the make-up of a cult movie - more so than any of the others (even kill bill).

go see it. the best movie i've seen since 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' - I mean...how often do u get to see a movie that leaves u guessing and anticipating the next scene. And the ending is brilliant. I think...ultimately... u just didnt get it - or it just wasnt ure cup of tea.

'Goshhhhh. You're such an IDIot.'

plus....as for the mtv movie awards being taken seriously. it depends...... if the actors prefer getting their dick sucked by 'critics' they might not give a shit. But the MTV movie awards are more representative of popular opinion and the average young movie goer - which happens to be the target audience for your movies who ultimately end up phattening <said actor>'s pockets, buy his new car, house and pay off the dog psychologist.

trust me.....they care

OK, Ed, fair enough, but I just don't agree. I've seen Napoleon Dynamite and IMHO it is a piece of donkey poo masquerading as something tragically hip. For it to beat out the technically brilliant and superbly scripted Spiderman 2 and the sheer balls-out adrenalin of Kill Bill is a travesty.

It may be true that the audience desides who gets the awards, but let's face it, that audience is a bunch of thick US teenagers who only watch MTV and thus have their cultural perceptions shaped by that channel. true, that's a generalisaiton, but one which I feel has merit. Thus, MTV shapes the opinions of their viewers who decide who wins. If MTV says Lindsay Lohan is cool, then the viewers will think she is cool. Thus, Lohan wins. There can be no other coherent explanation.

I'm taking this waaaay too seriously Apologies. :-)
