The 2007 MTV Movie Awards went off without a hitch last night, as the music network celebrated the edgier side of Hollywood by doling out its irreverent Golden Popcorn honors to the movie industry.
Emcee Sarah Silverman wasn't as dirty as she can sometimes be, but she did make some nice cracks about heiress-on-the-wrong-side-of-the-law Paris Hilton--who was in the audience at the time. Uncomfortable!
The big winners of the night were Johnny Depp with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - it won Best Movie and he won Best Performance - and Sacha Baron Cohen, who won Best Comedic Performance for Borat and Best Kiss (along with Will Ferrell) for Talladega Nights. The two men celebrated their win by rolling around on stage and making out.
Other winners include: Jack Nicholson for Best Villain in The Departed, Jaden Smith for Breakthrough Performance with The Pursuit of Happyness, Gerard Butler for Best Fight in 300, Transformers for Best Summer Movie You Haven't Seen Yet, Josh Greenbaum for mtvU Best Filmmaker on Campus with Featured Film: Border Patrol, United 300 for Best Movie Spoof, and Mike Myers for the MTV Generation Award.

If you're one of the few people left that hasn't already been sent the quickly-infamous Will Ferrell video by a friend who's just a bit more plugged-in than yourself, here's the deal:
A new web site just launched called funnyordie.com. Basically, it's a web site dedicated to comedy videos. Their flagship video, Landlord, is an amusing two-minute short starring Will Ferrell, director Adam McKay (Anchorman, Talladega Nights) and a precocious foul-mouthed, hard-drinking toddler named Pearl. As Ferrell's mean-spirited landlord, Pearl berates the deadbeat tenant with such classic lines as "I want my money b***h!"
The video has already been a tremendous success, capitalizing on another Ferrell hit on the big screen, Blades of Glory. The story has been linked around the net and also picked up by YouTube.
There isn't a lot of news yet as to the origins of the video, although it doesn't look like it took a ton of production time. Funnyordie.com is purportedly a partnership between Ferrell's production company and venture capital firm Sequoia Capital. Posted 04.19.07 by reelz
