Kids These Days
Last night brought the broadcast of MTV’s annual Movie Awards, a sort of Oscars-on-spring-break bash that I watched as much of as I could take.
Highlight: Hilary Swank being denied a companion to her Million Dollar Baby Best Actress Oscar by Lindsay Lohan, who captured the Best Performance: Female statuette for her work in Mean Girls.
Legitimate highlight: The Best Movie race featuring such mega-successes as The Incredibles, Spider-Man 2, and Kill Bill 2 all trumped by the grand-prizewinning Napoleon Dynamite.
I didn’t care for Napoleon Dynamite all that much (too small, in almost every way).
But for such a film to score bigger with TRLers than all the star-studded explode-a-thons feels like a step in the right evolutionary direction.
