The 2007 MTV Movie Awards: Hollywood Gone Wild

By now, we all know that awards shows in Hollywood are all about taking home the big prize-well, not the MTV movie awards. It seems that this show isn't about winning but more on Hollywood stars having a great time and keeping the censors on the edge.

The show was hosted by Sarah Silverman, who made a few people cringed during her opening stand-up comedy act, particularly, the one she made about Paris Hilton going to jail. The cameras panned in on Paris Hilton during the joke and she wasn't smiling.

Plus, it's not going to be an MTV Movie awards without controversial scenes like Sarah Silverman and Jessica Biel's near-kiss and Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen's on-stage make-out session.

The show was broadcasted live from the Gibson Amphitheater and it was all too obvious that the stars were enjoying themselves by giving the Censors a thorough workout. Everyone was cussing, including Bruce Willis who let out a "Yippee kay ay, motherf----", even Jack Nicholson joined in on the bleeping party and dropped an F-bombed during his thank-you speech when he received the Best Villain.

There were also some power-packed performances like Rihanna and Jay-Z's rendition of "Umbrella" and Amy Winehouse performed her hit song "Rehab".

But let's not forget that this is an Awards Show so there are winners. The biggest winners are Pirates of the Caribbean and Borat who took home two awards each. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest won the best movie and Johnny Depp won Best Performance. During his speech, Johnny Depp thanked Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney for not firing him. Indeed, thank God they didn't or we wouldn't have Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.

Sacha Baron Cohen also won two awards, one for Best Comedic Performance for his classic portrayal of the Kazakh journalist, Borat, and the other is for best kiss which he shared with Will Ferrell for their performance in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, this is where all the manly kissing and groping started. I was waiting for an appearance of Borat, but Sacha, during his thank-you speech for Best Comedic Performance, said that Borat is in rehab for driving under the influence of horse urine.

If you missed the show, too bad, you probably won't catch another one like it next year since the Censors will still probably have this event in mind before they allow MTV to do another live show. Here's a list of the winners:

* Best Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest * Best Performance: Johnny Depp, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest * Best Villain: Jack Nicholson, The Departed * Breakthrough Performance: Jaden Smith, the Pursuit of Happyness * Best Comedic Performance: Sacha Baron Cohen, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan * Best Kiss: Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby * Best Fight: Gerard Butler vs. "The Uber Immortal"- 300 * Best Summer Movie You Haven't Seen Yet: TRANSFORMERS * mtvU Best Filmmaker on Campus: Josh Greenbaum- Featured Film: Border Patrol * Best Movie Spoof: United 300 by Andy Signore * MTV Generation Award: Mike Myers
