It’s been 20 years since the MTV Movie Awards made its way onto America’s television screens, and yet it still manages to surprise us year after year with an array of unpredictable events. Sure, the occasionally hilarious acceptance speech is nothing to be scoffed at, but one of the biggest highlights of this particular awards show is its reputation for an over-abundance of PDA.
Whether it’s the re-creation of the epic romance from The Notebook or a highly inappropriate groping session between two Friends With Benefits, any affection is fair game. So in honor of some of the most memorable lip locks in Hollywood Award Show history, here are our favorite OMG PDA MTV Movie Awards moments (Okay, we’ll give it a rest with the acronyms) for your viewing pleasure.
Warning: These clips can be rather… stimulating. Children, please turn around and walk away from the computer slowly.
Nothing puts romantic rumors to rest like grabbing each other’s private parts on national television. As you can see, these two have a strictly professional relationship. Yep, this is just another day at the office.
Vampire and Werewolf Lip-Lock (2011)
Though the kiss was originally intended to be between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, the Twilight hunk took matters into his own hands and shared a steamy lip-lock with the hottest werewolf this side of Forks: Taylor Lautner. Someone pinch me because I think we just entered every Twi-hard fan’s dream world.
Sandra Bullock’s marriage to Jesse James may have taken a turn for the worse in 2010, but her presence in the lime light was just as strong as ever. Not only did she plant a wet one on Meryl Streep at the Critics Choice Awards in January, but she also shared a sensual embrace with Scarlett Johansson at the MTV Movie Awards that same year. Try to keep yourselves under control, gentlemen.
Tom Cruise (or should I say Les Grossman) proved that he could bust a move with the best of them, even going up against the famous J. Lo booty. Their jaw-dropping, hip-thrusting, gyrating dance routine was one of the year’s biggest highlights. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to watch the video below and begin laughing hysterically.
When these two crazy kids won for Best Kiss in 2009, Twi-hards everywhere watched and waited for the famous lip-lock to occur live for all to see. But Stewart had other plans and decided to Rob us from the special moment entirely. I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking that this move really (you guessed it) sucked!
This dynamic comedy duo took home the Golden Popcorn trophy, but only after reenacting their passionate make-out session from Talladega Nights. Naturally. Would we really expect anything less from these guys?
Anything involving Ryan Gosling is worth watching, but this reenactment of the famous Notebook kiss is enough to make even the biggest Gosling haters (do those even exist?) swoon. These two certainly knew how to play to the crowd. (Kristen Stewart, please take note.)
The Brady Bunch Goes Wild (1993)
This is the story… of a screwed up family. In 1993, the original cast of The Brady Bunch did spoofs about the most popular movies of the year, which resulted in Carol (Florence Henderson) and Greg Brady (Barry Williams) — former on-screen mother and son — reenacting a romantic scene from The Bodyguard. It was disturbing, yet still riotously funny.
