MTV Movie Awards telecast last night, you saw a lot of Twilight actors, some girl-on-girl action, a lot of leg, and a very different side of Tom Cruise. And, of course, Sandra Bullock continued to own us all. But here’s what you didn’t see on TV:If you watched the
— Just as the show cut to a commercial break, The Other Guys’ Mark Wahlberg, still suspended by a harness above the stage, wrapped his legs around costar Will Ferrell from behind and pretended to, um, do something I can’t print here. Hint: Just add an “ing” to that expletive heard every two seconds during Peter Facinelli’s acceptance speech.
— Speaking of… When Facinelli wondered aloud who he was forgetting to thank, someone in the audience yelled, “Nurse Jackie!” (Facinelli’s non-vampire job involves Showtime’s delectable dark comedy). That’s my kind of people!
— My seat was conveniently located behind a technician’s laptop that happened to contain the teleprompter script. Wahlberg’s curse-laden rant while hanging in that harness? Off-script.
— There was a lot of love in the room for Sandra Bullock, but the audience also bestowed plenty of adoration on Bullock’s Proposal costar Betty White. While being ushered through the theater before the show, the crowd cheered and applauded the last living Golden Girl. I dare say her walk through the theater got more yells than when Robert Pattinson took a stroll.
— The Vampire Diaries‘ Steven R. McQueen just couldn’t stay put, walking past me during at least three different commercial breaks. Maybe he was planning his escape route before the mass exodus at the end of the telecast. Katy Perry and Russell Brand had the right idea when they left the theater a couple of minutes before the event ended.
— Vanessa Hudgens clappedfor her sweetie Zac Efron during the Best Male Performance nominations video. Ah, young love.
