“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” Was The Best Movie Of 2010

Look, I’m not going to get on my soapbox and rant about the MTV Movie Awards. The mere fact that I use the phrase “get on my soapbox” is a good indication that I’m way too old to get indignant about “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” being declared the best movie of the last year or Robert Pattinson winning Best Male Performance over Jesse Eisenberg, or Justin Bieber winning Best Jaw-Dropping Moment for his concert film “Never Say Never.” Wait, Justin Bieber won Best Jaw-Dropping Moment for a concert film? Aren’t concerts, like, his job? What’s so jaw-dropping about that? He beat Steve-O’s Port-O-Potty bungee stunt in “Jackass 3D?” The man risked death by poop ingestion for our entertainment, people! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE THAT I — ah crap, there I go getting on my old man soapbox. Sorry.

Actually, I find the MTV Movie Awards pretty fascinating (if you missed them, and you’re willing to watch a lot of commercials in the process, the whole show is online — I recommend you at least make time to watch Jim Carrey’s introduction of Foo Fighters). Since they’re voted on by fans obsessive enough to care about who wins the MTV Movie Awards, they’re a pretty good litmus test of young moviegoers’ passions. And, yes, obviously they’re pretty passionate about the “Twilight” films right now, as the movie won five out of the six categories in which it was nominated: Best Movie, Best Male and Female Performance, Best Fight, and Best Kiss (SQUEEEEEE!).

So, yeah, that was predictable. But take a look at some of the other winners below. Would you have predicted Emma Stone taking Best Comedic Performance over the likes of comedy heavyweights like Adam Sandler and Zach Galifianakis? Or how about “Kick-Ass”‘ Chloe Moretz winning two awards for Best Breakout Star and Biggest Badass Star? Neither “Easy A” or “Kick-Ass” were major hits at the box office; combined, they barely cleared $100 million bucks domestically. Either these guys have absolutely amazing street teams getting out the online vote, or those movies are gaining major traction with that MTV audience on DVD.

Wait, is that MTV audience even old enough to watch “Kick-Ass?” That film was rated R. Parents of America, you have failed again.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
