Jennifer Aniston wins ‘dirtbag’ gong at MTV Awards
Washington: Jennifer Aniston bagged the best on-screen dirtbag award for her role as a man-eating dentist in ‘Horrible Bosses’ at the MTV Movie Awards, on Sunday.
The actress personally took the reward for being bad, at the Awards.
“I would like to say thank you to the television show ‘Friends’ for letting me unleash my inner-sweetheart, and here’s to (‘Horrible Bosses’ director) Seth Gordon for letting me be a dirtbag,” CBS News quoted Aniston as saying.
The live, fan-favorite ceremony opened with indie-pop group Fun and R’n’B singer Janelle Monae singing their hit ‘We Are Young,’ before host Russell Brand took the stage.
Brand opened the show by poking fun of Michael Fassbender’s full frontal endowment in ‘Shame’ and Kim Kardashian’s short-lived marriage, which he acknowledged was hypocritical.
Brand filed for divorce last year from pop superstar Katy Perry after 14 months of marriage. Perry had performed at the Brand-hosted MTV Video Music Awards in 2009.
“Tonight, I’m gonna keep my eyes peeled for my next wife,” Brand joked. “Fasssssbender!”
Other early winners were Shailene Woodley for breakthrough performance for ‘The Descendants’ and Josh Hutcherson for best male performance for ‘The Hunger Games.’
‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘The Hunger Games’ are the top nominees at the 21st annual extravaganza with eight nods apiece, including movie of the year.
The other contenders up for the night’s top prize were ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,’ ‘The Help’ and ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1.’
