With the 2012 MTV Movie Awards going down at 9 p.m. EST/8 p.m. CST tonight, hip Hollywood is out and ready to party. (It will be Awards' the 21st birthday, after all!) It also means we're going to finally get to see if Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart make it a four-peat in the category of Best Kiss, who will nab the honor of Best On-Screen Dirtbag, and if the final installment of Harry Potter will nab the Movie of the Year award ... or if that Golden Popcorn award will go to The Help, Bridesmaids, Hunger Games, or Breaking Dawn: Part 1. Also, will host Russell Brand make us cringe by cracking any jokes about his ex-wife Katy Perry? Eeek! We shall soon see!
But all of that's just the tip of the iceberg. Here, the five HUGE Hollywood moments happening tonight you won't want to miss ...
- Johnny Depp will accept his Generation Award. I totally would have guessed that the beloved swash-buckling actor would have been feted in this category a while back, but looks like tonight will be his night. MTV's President, Stephen Friedman called him "a fearless, once-in-a-generation talent with a chameleon-like ability to inhabit any role." In other words, this award was made for Johnny. His tribute tonight is certainly a must-see for any film lover ... or rock 'n' roll lover, as the award will be presented to him by Steven Tyler and Joe Perry.
- Emma Stone will be feted with a Trailblazer Award. Who doesn't absolutely adore Emma as one of Hollywood's freshest faces? Again, MTV got the right gal in this category, honoring The Help actress for carving out a unique career path, which has excitingly only just begun.
- Kristen Stewart will scowl and be awkward when she and BF/co-star Rob win for Best Kiss again. The actress has made it clear that she hopes someone else (maybe Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson for The Hunger Games?!) takes the cake here. Geeze, I am with her! Not only because RPatz won't be there, but because how cute will it be to see Jen and Josh win, or better yet, to see Ryan Gosling (nominated for Crazy Stupid Love) up there doing anything remotely sexy. Mmm, Ryan Gosling.
- We'll get a first look at The Dark Knight Rises! Stars Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman and director Christopher Nolan will be on hand to reveal an exclusive preview from the upcoming summer blockbuster. Exciting!
- A live strip-show! OMG, now this is what I'm talkin' about! As awesome as The Dark Knight Rises preview sounds, a live strip-show courtesy of the Magic Mike cast is something we ladies really have to look forward to! Thank goodness we don't have to wait til June 29 for the flick's premiere to see Channing Tatum in (most) all his glory. Whoohoo! Now, it's definitely time to party.
What are you most looking forward to seeing tonight?
