Hosted by Jason Sudeikis, the awards show started off with a spoof of The Hangover Part II in which Sudeikis attempted to track down Taylor Lautner after losing him during a supposed night of debauchery.
A highlight of the night was presenter Jim Carrey's outfit. The Mr. Popper's Penguins actor donned a green screen suit onto which he projected footage of two dogs engaged in intercourse.
In the shock of the night, Robert Pattinson kissed Lautner after receiving the prize for 'Best Kiss'. Both Pattinson and Lautner were nominated for the accolade for a lip lock with their co-star Kristen Stewart.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse took home the prizes for 'Best Kiss', 'Best Fight', 'Best Male Performance', 'Best Female Performance' and 'Best Movie'. Other notable winners included 7-year-old Alexys Nycole Sanchez for 'Best Line From A Movie' and Emma Stone for 'Best Comedic Performance'.
Reese Witherspoon accepted the 'Generation Award' from three presenters: Pattinson, Patrick Dempsey and Chelsea Handler. In her speech, the Walk the Line actress spoke especially to girls of the world, telling them that they do not have to be "bad" in order to succeed.
The evening closed with Lautner's acceptance of the 'Best Movie' award on behalf of the cast and crew of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The 19-year-old expressed his gratitude to the fans, stating that the accolade was the result of their devotion to the movies.
