The big winner at the MTV Movie Awards this weekend was — surprise! — MTV Films’ own Napoleon Dynamite. The cult hit took Best Picture, and star Jon Heder was honored for Best Musical Performance and Breakthrough Performance (Male). Mean Girls, starring last year’s Movie Awards host, Lindsay Lohan, also picked up three awards, including two for Lohan (she won Best Female Performance and split Best Onscreen Team with costars Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert, and Amanda Seyfried).

McAdams herself won three gilded popcorn-bucket trophies. Besides Best Onscreen Team, she won for Best Breakthrough Performance (Female) for her Mean Girls queen bee, and for Best Kiss, for her smooch with Ryan Gosling in The Notebook.

Other noteworthy awards: Leonardo DiCaprio finally beat Jamie Foxx and took home a Best Male Performance prize for The Aviator. Tom Cruise was rewarded for showing up on the arm of new girlfriend Katie Holmes, picking up the first-ever MTV Generation award (a career achievement prize), presented to him by his new squeeze.

Jimmy Fallon hosted the ceremony, taped Saturday night at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium, to begin airing Thursday, June 9. A list of winners is below.
