HOST REBEL WILSON IS PITCH PERFECT AT THE "2013 MTV MOVIE AWARDS," SCORING TWO GOLDEN POPCORNS AND LOTS OF LAUGHS

"The Avengers" and "Silver Linings Playbook" Grab Three Golden Popcorns Each, While Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Jamie Foxx Receive Multiple Honors

Culver City, CA (April 14, 2013) - Host Rebel Wilson set the tone for the "2013 MTV Movie Awards," opening the show with a high-energy, live medley of Miley Cyrus' "The Climb," Eminem's "Lose Yourself," Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire" and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop," joined by several of her "Pitch Perfect" co-stars. Telecast live from Sony Pictures Studios Lot, in Culver City, CA, the "2013 MTV Movie Awards" was filled with unexpected moments from the brightest stars in Hollywood and the hottest emerging talent in music. The annual event officially kicks off the blockbuster season, treating fans to a first look of the year's most-anticipated films.

The night was also a chance to look back on the films adored by fans over the past year. "The Avengers" and "Silver Linings Playbook" took home three golden popcorns each, while global icon Brad Pitt made a rare public appearance to recognize "The Avengers" as MOVIE OF THE YEAR. The Marvel film also received recognition for BEST VILLAIN, honoring Tom Hiddleston's turn as Loki, and BEST FIGHT, which was presented to Hiddleston, Chris Evans and Samuel L. Jackson. Fans were also treated to a clip of the forthcoming "Star Trek" blockbuster, introduced by stars Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto.

Academy Award(R)-winning actor and Grammy Award(R)-winning artist Jamie Foxx scored a golden popcorn for BEST WTF MOMENT along with his "Django Unchained" co-star Samuel L. Jackson, and Foxx was further recognized for his outstanding career with the GENERATION AWARD, presented by Kerry Washington. Not nominated for an Academy Award(R), but receiving recognition at the "2013 Movie Awards" was the film "Ted," which won for BEST ON-SCREEN DUO with Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane as Ted.

Foxx wasn't the only one to receive special recognition. Peter Dinklage from "Game of Thrones" presented Will Ferrell - clad in a cash money suit and joined on stage by his southeast Asian "wife and children" - with the inaugural COMEDIC GENIUS AWARD. Regarded as one of the most versatile young talents in Hollywood, Emma Watson, star of the upcoming "The Bling Ring," received the second-annual TRAILBLAZER AWARD from her "My Week with Marilyn" co-star Eddie Redmayne, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" co-star Logan Lerman, and Jonah Hill, who in a taped message divulged his wish to co-star in the film adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" with Watson.

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence each won two "MTV Movie Awards," one of which they shared for BEST KISS, presented by Steve Carell and Amanda Seyfried. Lawrence also won BEST FEMALE PERFORMANCE for the second-straight year, while Cooper was honored with the BEST MALE PERFORMANCE.

Rebel Wilson earned her very own golden popcorn, winning BREAKTHROUGH PERFORMANCE for her role in "Pitch Perfect," while also claiming an ensemble honor with the rest of her "Pitch Perfect" cast mates for BEST MUSICAL MOMENT. The Australian actress also brought the house down with a series of hysterical comedy shorts - one of which co-starred James Franco, who paid an unexpected visit to Rebel in the Australian bush, and another highlighting many of her marquee roles from the last year that were left on the cutting room floor.

Three men with unmistakable physiques - Zac Efron, Seth Rogen and Danny McBride - took to the Movie Awards stage, with Rogen and McBride dropping their pants to present the BEST SHIRTLESS PERFORMANCE honor to Taylor Lautner for his outstanding body of work in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2."

In the end, all eyes were on Liam Hemsworth, who provided the world with a first look at an exclusive teaser trailer of the highly anticipated new film "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," with the signature giant mockingjay pin engulfed in flames behind him. Fans were also provided with a sneak peek of an extended scene from Marvel's "Iron Man 3."

The "2013 MTV Movie Awards" also featured a string of stirring live music performances. Ke$ha introduced chart-topping duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis for a high-energy performance featuring a Mariachi themed brass section, keeping the party going with their most recent hit, "Can't Hold Us." Later in the evening, Kim Kardashian introduced Selena Gomez for a provocative, Bollywood dance-inspired rendition of her single "Come & Get It," as Gomez continues to turn heads after her recent appearance in "Spring Breakers."
