Last night was the MTV Awards, and hopefully you've already seen the Scott Pilgrim clip and Harry Potter trailer. But check out what else aired that night, including new Twilight: Eclipse and Airbender clips, plus Xtina Aguilera goes bionic.
Aziz Ansari was the host for the MTV movie awards, and he was generally hilarious, plus and he quite rightly made fun of all the 3-D films that came out this year. But Ansari really got a chance to shine when he did his R. Kelly Avatar song. It was the only thing that actually felt "current," even though the movie has been out forever. Plus fuck BP, seriously.
Next up we got to see Christina Aguilera go all roboty crazy with her "Bionic" song. It was... nice?
Girl can sing, but I'm not really sure about the lyrics, which went something like this, "Bionic take ya supersonic. Bionic hits you like a rocket. Bionic so damn bionic... *ray gun noises*" I guess the nicest thing we can say about this performance was that her Bionic Woman vajazzling worked like a sparkly robot vagina heart should. Good for her.
But the MTV Awards wasn't just about handing out Golden Popcorn trophies to the kids from Twilight, while rapidly aging 30-somethings pushed their latest film onto their target demographic. There were clips and new trailers — including a long and brooding Eclipse clip. We've got a sinking feeling there's going to be a lot of angry boy stand offs in this Twilight film.
Plus a new Airbender trailer. Tiny bits of new footage in here and the "discovering Aang" introduction seems to be fleshed out a little bit. We have to admit, the FX are starting to look very nice. But we're still waiting to see a full-fledged scene before we get overly excited.
In other MTV Awards news, Tom Cruise reprised his role as Les Grossman from Tropic Thunder. Which was pretty funny until they beat that character to death with the joke killing stick wielded by JLo. And Shaun White dressed up like the illegitimate child of Tom Hawk, from Tomahawk, and Carrot Top.
