Hosted by the upcoming Central Intelligence leading duo of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart, the MTV Movie Awards took place on Saturday 9 April at the Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California. While the Oscars are the most prestigious movie awards ceremony on the calendar, the Golden Popcorn rewards those that captured the attention of audiences most over the last year.

So without further ado, join me as I copy-and-paste all the action straight from this year’s event to your eyes… and your winners are:

-Amy Schumer, Trainwreck
-Kevin Hart, Ride Along 2
-Melissa McCarthy, Spy

Because sometimes pepper goes better with popcorn than the ever-present salt, am I right Oscars?

Documentary
***WINNER: Amy
Cartel Land
He Named Me Malala
The Hunting Ground

There was some very impressive work done in this category, but the tragically cut short life story of Amy Winehouse is this year’s winner.

-Chris Evans, Avengers: Age of Ultron
-Daisy Ridley, Star Wars: The Force Awakens

-Hugh Keays-Byrne, Mad Max: Fury Road
-James Spader, Avengers: Age of Ultron

Generation Award Winner: Will Smith

The man is a legend. He even starred in a movie that said so.

Comedic Genius Award Winner: Melissa McCarthy

Comedic geniuses are few and far between. Melissa McCarthy is not one. You may feel differently.

And there we have it – all of this year’s winners and not-losers-because-at-least-we-were-nominated-unlike-those-other-guys. What do you think, are they deserved wins or do these people not know what they’re smoking?
