Twilight co-stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were the toast of the evening as they both triumphed in the Best Female and Male Performance categories.
The rumoured real-life lovers also shared the prize for Best Kiss, and teased the crowd by debating whether or not to follow tradition with a live lip-lock. But Stewart let viewers down by snubbing a Pattinson smooch, declaring: "To be perfectly honest with you, it takes a lot of smoke and mirrors to make us look good kissing."
Pattinson was also dubbed the night's Global Superstar.
Other MTV Movie Award winners included Anna Kendrick, who was named the Best Breakout Star, accepting the prize for her role in Up in the Air, opposite George Clooney; meanwhile, The Hangover stars Zach Galifianakis and Ken Jeong won for Best Comedic Performance and Best WTF Moment, respectively.
But it was Sandra Bullock's return to the spotlight that really got audiences revved up as she accepted the MTV Generation Award.
The Oscar winner, who stepped away from the public eye in the weeks after her husband Jesse James' infidelity was exposed in the press, was welcomed to the stage with a standing ovation after an introduction by Bradley Cooper, Betty White and Scarlett Johansson - who unexpectedly planted a kiss on the actress.
Bullock laughed off rumours she plans to quit acting, and made light of her personal life, telling the crowd: "Now that we have done that (kissed), can we please go back to normal? Because therapy is really expensive."
The evening also featured a series of hilarious skits starring Tom Cruise as his foul-mouthed, bad-tempered Tropic Thunder character Les Grossman - including a performance with a group of scantily clad backing dancers and a surprise duet with Jennifer Lopez.
Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg took the stage to perform her track California Gurls, while Christina Aguilera closed the show by debuting a medley of songs from her new album Bionic.

Raja Gosnell's big-screen treatment of classic cartoon series The Smurfs has an eclectic all-star cast that continues to grow as pre-production continues.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Hank Azaria will voice Gargamel, the evil sorcerer and arch-nemesis of the Smurfs. In addition, Jayma Mays (Fox's Glee) will play the pregnant wife of star Neil Patrick Harris in Sony's CGI/live-action hybrid film. Previous cast members announced include George Lopez, Alan Cumming and Katy Perry.
Azaria is already a voice-over legend, thanks to his long-term employment on The Simpsons as Apu the Kwik-E-Mart owner, Moe the Bartender. The producer's have focused on hiring actors, like Lopez, Azaria and Cumming, who've had experience lending their voices to animated characters (All have at least two VO credits to their resume).
The story of the movie centers on the happy expectant couple’s lives being turned upside-down upon meeting these blue creatures.
The movie will take place in New York City’s Central Park and is set to begin production next month for a July 29th, 2011 release
Katy Perry is set to exercise her acting skills with a role in the big-screen adaptation of classic kids' show The Smurfs.
The "I Kissed a Girl" hitmaker recently filmed a cameo role for fiancé Russell Brand's latest picture, Get Him to the Greek, and now she's preparing to voice a character in Smurfs: The Movie.
Perry will lend her voice to the new film, which will be a mixture of live action and animation, as Smurfette, the only female Smurf among the group. She joins How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris, Alan Cumming and George Lopez, who have already signed up, according to Variety.com.
Scooby-Doo filmmaker Raja Gosnell will direct the movie, and filming is slated to begin in April.

The actor/director initially donated $250,000 (£156,250) to various charities, but has since had a change of heart and decided to match donations made by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.
In a statement posted on his website, Perry writes, "I have raised my personal donation from $250,000 to $1 million. I did this realising that after the next big story comes along, the news media will pack up and leave the people of Haiti to fend for themselves. They always do.
"My plan is to do just what I did when I built those 20 houses for the survivors of Hurricane Katrina. Sometimes it's best to wait for the frenzy to pass to really be effective. Haiti needs help now and there are a lot of people doing that, but they will also need help in the coming months."
Perry now hopes to visit Haiti in an effort to make sure his charity money is being well spent: "My plan is to take a trip there and see for myself how to put our donations to the best use."

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
Carbon copying the already overly convoluted idea from the previous Final Destination movies the latest worst installment continues on the theme of one unlucky twentysomething being able to predict who’s going to die and when; this time it’s Nick. After attending a NASCAR race with his girlfriend Lori and their friends Hunt and Janet Nick has a premonition about an elaborate horrific accident that threatens everyone present. Naturally it comes true — and even though plenty of people die in the stands Death (you know the bogeyman) has only just begun. But Nick realizes that he might be able to save the survivors of that day by remembering the order in which they're supposed to die and warning them of their imminent demise. Unfortunately though not everyone believes him and they carry on with their dangerous activities ... like going to a hair salon or — gulp! — through a carwash.
WHO’S IN IT?
Up-and-coming actor Bobby Campo plays the main pretty young thing and he makes the best of what is ultimately an untenable and God-awful role to have to accept. Still fresh faces capable of pulling off his part are a dime a dozen and Destination’s past leads like Mary Elizabeth Winstead at least left us feeling their fear. Supporting actresses Shantel VanSanten as Lori and Haley Webb as Janet are there for little more than eye candy and ear-shredding screams while former MTV 'It' dude Nick Zano as the obnoxious clichéd — and obnoxiously clichéd — Hunt can’t even provide the occasional comic relief for which he was brought on. The lone bright spot comes courtesy of an evidently desperate-for-work Mykelti Williamson (aka Bubba in Forrest Gump) who plays a widowed security guard adding a shred of cred to the otherwise disposable cast (which includes a barely there Krista Allen).
Clocking in at a mercifully brisk hour and 15 minutes the makers of TFD find one way to not essentially call us stupid: They know we want our scares quickly and they deliver — except for actually scaring us. Aside from its running time the aforementioned credible performance by Williamson is literally all the movie has going for it.
Wow where to begin? Destination another in a loooong line of wholly unnecessary sequels is riddled with problems — from the are-you-kidding-me? “special” effects (even in 3-D) to the jaw-droppingly horrendous writing. Director David R. Ellis (helmer of the infinitely better Final Destination 2) should bear much of the blame. He seems uninterested in delivering anything that people go to the movies for; this Destination is nothing more than tenuously connected scenes of video-game-like deaths that try to one-up each other. And not one of the sequences is even mildly suspenseful or scary — just disturbing in the sense that some people will actually smirk in earnest at the cartoonishness of it all.
The writing though is the real culprit. Eric Bress’ (also an FD2 alum) script is incredibly unimaginative merely recycling similar but better executed scenarios from the three previous movies and swapping out the settings. With ideas so bad Bress makes it abundantly clear that there’s no inane death massacre left to explore at this point; it's basically a metaphorical surrender. And yet the dialogue is even worse — with stock stereotypical block characters muttering it to boot.
LEAST FAVORITE SCENE?
Not to completely give it away — lest we make the movie predictable! — but one of the death scenes is just so far beyond ridiculous that it transcends even sarcastic laughter. Hint: It involves water and it’s about midway through the movie … if you dare stay that long.
Even if you’re not a cinephile and you couldn’t care less about things like character depth and plot development and you’re looking for a very quick thrill The Final Destination is well beneath you. It makes recent straight-to-DVD releases look like fully coherent masterpieces. Whether in 3-D or 2-D it’s a mustn't-see!
The pair, who worked together on last year's (08) Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, proved that the real money in Tinseltown was to be made from behind the camera.
