Forget last night's celebrity appearances, red-carpet fashions, or amazing acceptance speeches as they claimed their Golden Popcorn: For Hollywood Crush, THE most memorable moment of last night's MTV Movie Awards came courtesy of mysterious archery expert Lester Boonshaft, who pierced us right in our beating heart with an arrow...of AMAZINGNESS.
Who is Lester Boonshaft? Only the greatest archery pro never to hit a bullseye! (And he's definitely not Joel McHale from "The Soup" wearing breeches and a cape. Nope. Definitely not.) The talented weapons expert was the subject of one of last night's most talked-about featurettes, as J.J. Abrams aired his grievances over Lester's peculiar lack of experience, and "Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence sat down for an exclusive interview with MTV in which she told all about her experience under Lester's tutelage.
It turns out Channing Tatum had it right when he said that "Breaking Dawn" was going to take home the MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss, but we know at least one person who was voting for him. When MTV News caught up with Channing and his wife—and "Step Up" costar!—Jenna Dewan, she was more than happy to tout his smooching skills.
"I think he should totally win! He should totally win," she said after Channing repeatedly said, "I'm not gonna win."
"I don't know, 'The Hunger Games,' they might have a little of an edge, but you never know. He's the best kisser. He's the best kiss-er, though."
"The Hunger Games" is up for nine Golden Popcorns at tonight's MTV Movie Awards, but perhaps it should be up for a 10th, specially created award for Best Cutting of Unnecessary Characters. Because as this lost audition tape reveals, there were a lot of questionable actors vying for a role in the dystopian drama.
Like, watch "Glee" star Chris Colfer reading for the part of Wafflecon Muffleta. I mean, keep your day job at McKinley High, amiright? And as much as we adore Max Greenfield as Schmidt on "New Girl," the actor's audition for Chutney (pronounced chut-a-knee) McDoodlebart makes us think he should probably leave his driving moccasins and Irish walking cane out of the arena.
But don't take our word for it. Click play on the video above to watch Chloe Moretz, "Jersey Shore" star Vinny Guadagnino and more try out for "The Hunger Games" in our latest After Hours.
Ready to be infinite? We have your first look at "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" trailer, courtesy of stars Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller who presented the clip at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards pre-show. And for fans of Stephen Chbosky's novel (published by MTV Books), rest easy knowing that this appears to be one faithful adaptation.
"Perks" tells the story of painfully shy high school freshman Charlie (Logan), who starts the school year off a friend-less loner…until he's befriended by outgoing step-siblings Sam (Emma) and Patrick (Ezra).
The trailer opens with Charlie at his desk on the eve of his first day of school, penning a letter to the unknown friend to whom the book's missives are addressed. As we see, Charlie doesn't fare too well at his new school, as he's pushed around by bullies. But things begin to change when he meets his English teacher/mentor played by Paul Rudd and Patrick, whose sarcastic enthusiasm is infectious: "Be aggressive! Passive aggressive!"
It's that time of year again! You could just watch the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on TV, but where's the fun in that? We'll be live blogging the entire event—red carpet and live show—over at MTV News, and we would suggest you click in. After all, where else are you going to get your backstage scoop on everything that you won't be seeing on your television set?
The live blog starts at 8:00 p.m. ET, and we'll be going all night long. We're expecting all sorts of awesome stuff, including "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" trailer presented by stars Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller, a red-carpet sighting of Best Kiss nominee Kristen Stewart, and of course, we can't wait to see what insights "Vampire Diaries" star Kat Graham has as our Special Style Correspondent!

Ladies, if Joe Manganiello has ever flashed his junk at you, it's probably just because he's obsessed with playing a werewolf. Or, you know, because he was practicing for "Magic Mike."
Our favorite "True Blood" werewolf made this shocking admission about his "monster" during a special MTV Movie Awards edition of After Hours called Actors Anonymous. Let's just say that some of the stars behind "True Blood," "The Vampire Diaries" and "Teen Wolf" are pretty messed up.
Strange things are happening at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards. By now you might have seen an image floating around the web of an arrow sticking through Jennifer Lawrence's head. But if not, there's an image floating around of an arrow sticking through Jennifer Lawrence's head
We have it on good authority that this photo is not one of JLaw in death throes but actually a snapshot of a comedic short film she co-stars in with Joel McHale that will air during the Movie Awards. We promise you, no young Hollywood stars were harmed during the making of this awards show.
Since "Vampire Diaries" star Kat Graham is MTV's Special Style Correspondent on the 2012 MTV Movie Awards red carpet, it goes without saying that she has to set the standard for Movie Awards fashion. MTV News had the pleasure of joining her during a fitting for her red carpet dress, where she talked all about her responsibilities for the night.
"No pressure! I just have to be very familiar with the designers and the artists and everyone nominated," she said. "It's slightly terrifying, but it's going to be really fun."
Is Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" smooch hot enough to cinch a Movie Awards Best Kiss four-peat? We'll have to wait until tomorrow (the agony! the ecstasy!) to find out if the pair can beat out competitors Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone ("Crazy, Stupid, Love"), Rupert Grint and Emma Watson ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2"), Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson ("The Hunger Games") and Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum ("The Vow"). And if the "Twilight" stars do indeed score another Golden Popcorn, there will be yet another question to address: Who will Kristen kiss?
You see, while the "Snow White and the Huntsman" star will be in attendance, the other pair of lips in this equation will, sadly, not be. When our friends at MTV UK caught up with the hunk at a junket for his upcoming "Cosmopolis," they got down to the bottom of KStew's quandry.
"I don't know," Rob said when asked if he'd be devastated if he and Kristen didn't win Best Kiss. "We didn't get nominated for anything else. I'm like, 'Grr.' I have to be in Toronto for 'Cosmopolis,' but I think Kristen is going so she's going to kiss herself if she wins."
It's our final encore, guys, but the last night of Sneak Peek Week, leading into this weekend's MTV Movie Awards, is going out rocking. Tonight, Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Malin Akerman and director Adam Shankman are all on hand to present an EXCLUSIVE clip from their upcoming flick, "Rock of Ages," and they'll stick around afterwards for a 30-minute Q&A with MTV News' Josh Horowitz.
The film is an adaptation of a Broadway musical, centering on the hard-partying '80s and its rising stars, who hope to set the scene on fire with their music. "Rock of Ages" also stars Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin and MTV Movie Awards host, Russell Brand, and hits theaters June 15.
In the meantime, breakout the acid-wash jeans, spritz a healthy dose of Aqua Net and press play on the video above, because it all rocks on at 11 p.m. ET.
