The Wow, The Meh, and The Cringey

The MTV Movie Awards has never been one to take itself too seriously. It’s for sure no Academy Awards or Golden Globes, especially with its emphasis on flashy effects, big-budget blockbusters, and younger audience appeal. To kick it off this year, MTV decided to host the awards outdoors on the Warner Bros. studio lot in Burbank, CA as opposed to the traditional theater venue, a risky move that was ultimately fun and innovative. Nevertheless, sometimes it outdoes itself in jaw-droppers and head-scratchers. Here are few of the most exciting moments of the night, whether spectacular or not.

MEH: Cursing Up a Storm and D*ck Jokes

The hosts never shied away from throwing in a swear every now and then, dropping F-bombs left and right. One of them being in reference to Leonardo diCaprio and his character’s encounter with a bear in The Revenant. Don’t watch with youngsters if you want to keep them pure.

CRINGEY: Teen Moms Joke

Zac Efron, Adam DeVine, and Anna Kendrick participated in a bit that at best falls flat and at worst makes fun of teen moms and MTV’s show 16 and Pregnant. In an effort to promote the three actors’ upcoming movie, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, the involves Anna setting up a dating audition for the two guys, but instead of the girls she picked out coming on stage, actors pretending to be pregnant teens come up instead. Like DeVine’s expression throughout the bit indicated, this joke was just distasteful.

Lots of other fun things like Alexander Skarsgård presenting an award pantsless, Rebel Wilson and Adam DeVine’s kiss, and The Lonely Island’s jiggy Will Smith Tribute happened too, but we’ll forever be scarred by that awful song about Leo and the bear.
