2014 MTV Movie Awards Recap


I love watching any award show on MTV because you never know what is going to happen.  This years host was Conan O'Brien and I was upset when I heard this.  Honestly he just isn't that funny to me.  I was totally not impressed by him.  Twenty One Pilots performed their song Car Radio but I've never heard of them.  They were interesting.  Zac Efron getting shirtless was the BEST moment for sure!  Channing Tatum won the Trailblazer Award which he totally deserved.  I'm kinda in love with him.  The performance I was most excited for was Eminem and Rihanna singing The Monster.  It was of course FREAKING amazing!  The Paul Walker dedication was very touching and I honestly cried.  He was honestly my favorite actor.  He will be greatly missed.  Mark Wahlberg won the Generation Award.  I'm a bigger fan of his brother but it was well deserved.  Ellie Goulding and Zedd performed Beating Heart and Find You from Divergent.  I'm obsessed with Ellie Goulding right now so I loved it.  Overall it was a pretty good but it needed a better host.  I've put all winners below in bold.  Tell me your thoughts!
