Best and Worst of the 2012 MTV Movie Awards
Best: Emma Stone tribute
Emma Stone is probably a good 10 years from receiving a legitimate Trailblazer Award, but it was kind of MTV to honor the up and comer with "The Amazing Spider-Man" less than a month away from opening. The incredibly intelligent, composed and witty actress gave a wonderful acceptance speech tying her words into encouragement for anyone who is trailblazing in their own way. Beforehand, there was a wonderfully done tribute video featuring co-stars Steve Carell, Jason Sudekis, Octavia Spencer, Jim Carrey and Anna Faris (who stole the piece with lines like "I can't believe she's still doing it at 47. She's 23? Omigod, she looks awful!"). It was arguably the best moment of the night.
