Flash back to the 2004 MTV Movie Awards and you would find a red-haired, bubbly and slightly less controversial Lindsay Lohan center stage, hosting the whole show! However these days, you are more likely to find Linds in front of the lens of paparazzi than that of a televised red carpet event-which is perhaps why some may have been a bit surprised to see the new blonde at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday.
MTV News caught up with her on the red carpet and asked who she thought would take the golden popcorn for Best Movie. Between front running films about vampires, aliens and Vegas — Lindsay chose to root for the boys from the hilarious, boozed up bachelor trip “The Hangover."

Love was certainly in the air last night at the MTV Movie Awards, and the kisses were a plenty. Not only was the “kiss cam” capturing smooches all throughout the audience, our favorite celebs were heating up the stage with impromptu displays of affection all night long.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart locked lips, and it was, without a doubt, a bit more awkward than their on-screen love fest. But the show-stopping smooch of the night came from two unsuspecting ladies: Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson. So, who can swamp spit better? The cast of “New Moon” weighed in after the show!
She's well-known for her party girl antics, love for pickles and general hilarity on MTV's "Jersey Shore," but when Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi joined Sway on the red carpet Sunday night to help interview MTV Movie Awards attendees during arrivals, she hit several homeruns with her characteristic blunt commentary — and made herself a red carpet highlight as well.
Her first interview with Paris Hilton and Snoop Dogg went off without a hitch, or any real fireworks. Though we did learn that Snooki and Paris are BFF's after meeting at last year's VMAs. Snook hit her stride with "High School Musical" alum Vanessa Hudgens, starting the interview by commenting on V's relationship with co-star Zac Efron. "You two are so cute together, just got to say it," Snooki said to a surprised Vanessa, then added, "You're so gorgeous you look amazing tonight."
This year, the guys at the MTV Movie Awards nearly showed up the girls. Sure, there were a few things we didn't love, like um Miami Vice-ish jackets (ahem Jackson Rathbone!), but overall, we thought the guys did a pretty great job. Check out our men's fashion recap to find out who impressed us, and who still has a ways to go.
Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner may be fighting it out for the same girl on-screen, but when it comes to their red carpet style, there's no competition. Taylor wins this one hands down. Taylor's signature cleaned up look impressed us yet again last night, while RPattz' undersized jacket and brown khakis left a lot to be desired. We will give Robert points for the trimmed down haircut though!
Russell Brand had told MTV's Josh Horowitz last night that the thing that every awards show needs is a little bit of crisis. Well, last night's MTV Movie Awards had two: Peter Facinelli's f-bomb slipping past the censors after "New Moon" won Best Movie, and Mark Wahlberg interrupting Tom Felton's Best Villain acceptance speech.
While it wasn't quite up to Kanye proportions (he did threaten that he would "Taylor Swift your ass if I could get down there" as a joke), Mark was heckling Tom to hurry up his speech because he and "The Other Guys" co-star Will Ferrell were dangling from the ceiling as part of a skit.
Now, we're used to seeing "unconventional" outfits on the MTV Movie Awards red carpet, but this year's looks really took it to the next level. For reasons we still can't explain, the trend of choice was over-the-top sparkles and studs. Unsurprisingly, it was a look that few were able to pull off. Of course, it wasn't the only red carpet theme that had us saying tsk tsk. Check out our list to see the rest.
We understand that Christina Aguilera is all about reinventing herself, but it felt like she was trying too hard to push the envelope in her black Versace gown (was it missing half-a-skirt?) and pin-up girl hair do. In fact, we actually liked her performance outfits way more than her red carpet ensemble!
We've been looking forward to this year's MTV Movie Awards for quite some time now, and we've got to say, it did not disappoint. Of course, the best part of the night, at least for us, was checking out the outfits. Surprisingly, we loved only a handful (stay tuned for our worst dressed picks), but the few that made the cut very much deserved it. So, check out the list and let us know if you agree!
Now, who doesn't love Sandra Bullock? The girl is just the epitome of elegance. Not only did she give a speech that defined class, but she looked great doing it in a short black Oday Chakar dress with a plunging back, which prompted Betty White to tell her "Don't ever wear that dress backwards!"
Aziz Ansari said it best when he wrapped up last night's unsurprisingly awesome MTV Movie Awards: "What a surprise, 'Twilight' takes it all!" While the sparkly vampires had been tied in nominations with James Cameron's "Avatar," the best-selling franchise swept the show, scoring every award it was nominated for.
That's six out of 10, for those of you keeping track (yes, we're including Anna Kendrick's Best Breakout Performance awards as a win for the "Twilight" crowd, even though she was nominated for "Up in the Air.").
Love was in the air at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, where a gaggle of celebrities wound up locking lips...including some unexpected ones. Things kicked off early on the red carpet where outlandish British funnyman Russell Brand managed to French kiss our reporter's ear. The smoothing continued into the awards show itself, where Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart played awkward before seemingly doing the deed. The "Kiss Cam" was enough to get Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens going, along with Jonah Hill and, shockingly enough, Russell Brand again.
But none made eyes go wide more than Sandra Bullock, who had a brief exchange with Scarlett Johansson before going in for the prize. We've compiled the best moments in the video below, so check it out and then click here for our red carpet interviews.
Sandra Bullock really likes kissing women—or at least it would seem. It was déjà vu all over again as Sandra smooched a successful blond actress at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. But instead of iconic star Meryl Streep it was her "Proposal" costar Ryan Reynolds' comely wife, Scarlett Johansson.
As Sandra strode upfront to accept her MTV Generation Award, former costars Bradley Cooper, Betty White and—confusingly—Scarlett were on stage to toast the actress. After expressing her thanks and clearing up a few things (FYI, Sandra is not dead and everyone has cellulite), she finally said what we had all been thinking: "This is so weird. Scarlett, I really love you and all, but this is just really uncomfortable. Why are you here?"
