There were no MTV Movie Awards when “Star Wars” was released in 1977 (there was no MTV yet, either). If there were, it’s a safe bet that the film would have swept pretty much all of the categories. Aside from Movie of the Year and Best Cast, “Star Wars” would surely have blown away the competition in these races:
Best Male Performance: Harrison Ford (Han Solo)
Best Female Performance: Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia)
MTV Sneak Peek Week continues! The road to the MTV Movie Awards kicked off last night with "Snow White and the Huntsman," with stars Kristen Stewart and Sam Clafin joining MTV's very own Josh Horowitz to premiere an exclusive clip followed by a live Q&A.

FROM MTV NEWS: Listen, we're just as excited about "The Dark Knight Rises" as you are. We've tracked the increasing clarity of Bane's voice. We've scoured every frame of the trailer for clues. Most importantly, we've been counting down the days until July 20, and frankly, that's just too far away.
So how does June 3 sound? That's the date we will be premiering exclusive footage from Christopher Nolan's conclusion to his Batman trilogy at the MTV Movie Awards live on MTV. It will be your best opportunity to catch a glimpse at the summer's most anticipated film before the July release date.
If the allure of the golden popcorn wasn't enough for you before, now you have no other choice but to check out the MTV Movie Awards live on Sunday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET.
For the rest of the details about the "Dark Knight Rises" footage, head over to MTV News!

Immediately following, you can head to MTV.com to see an exclusive Q&A with the actors.
Head on over to MTV News to read more about the films, see which cast members will be in attendance and find out how you can win a chance to attend Sneak Peek Week and the Movie Awards!
The 2012 MTV Movie Awards are just a few short weeks away, where all of your favorite films — "The Hunger Games," "Bridesmaids," "Harry Potter" and more — are going head-to-head for Golden Popcorn glory.
But those films aren't the only ones capable of winning big… there's also a chance for you to win prizes as well!
From now through Movie Awards night on June 3, you can enter the DIRECTV CINEMATM & MTV Movie Awards Ultimate Movie FanTM Challenge Sweepstakes, where you'll compete to prove that your movie knowledge can't be beat.
Hooray for Movie Awards season and the cutthroat competition between this year's very deserving group of nominees! And although the majority of the nominations were snagged by some popular wizards, bridesmaids and tributes, there is plenty of Movie Awards love and Golden Popcorn to go around. Kinda.
Speaking of Movie Awards love, we have to give it up to first-time nominee Oliver Cooper for putting together this very clever campaign video and Facebook page.
"These are the nominees for Best Onscreen Dirtbag, but only one of them has a proven track record as a douchebag," the ad begins. "He's been called a crude, pushy creep, and 'the most annoying movie character since Jar Jar Binks.'"
The 2012 MTV Movie Awards are just around the corner—June 3 at 9 p.m. ET for those of you not keeping track—and as we count the days until the Golden Popcorn battle begins between "Hunger Games," "Bridesmaids," "Harry Potter" and more, we're looking back on Movie Awards days gone by.
Sure, we're admittedly a bit biased in our award show's favor, but let's face the facts. Is there an awards show out there that honors the greatest fan-favorite films of the year while simultaneously sticking Bruno's butt in Eminem's face mere moments after Andy Samberg and Will Ferrell have schooled you all about how cool guys deal with explosions (hint: they don't look at them)? Didn't think so!
From outrageous moments to hilarious movie spoofs, the Movie Awards has it all. And as the show celebrates its 21st year, we're asking you to look back with us by singling out the best of the best. Who was the greatest host? Who was the best dressed? You can vote on all of that and more in our polls, all of which are currently open and viewable below!
What do Nick Fury, Agent J and Austin Powers have in common? "They're all secret agents" is the obvious answer, but look deeper… think back… the actors who played those characters are among the finest MTV Movie Awards hosts of all time!
Indeed, we've had our fair share of memorable hosts over the years. There's no forgetting 2007's host Sarah Silverman, who ruthlessly ripped into the star-studded crowd with equal parts shock and hilarity. Jimmy Fallon took a gentler approach when he hosted in 2005; looking back on that night, it's easy to see why he's as widely adored on the talk show circuit as he is now. Even as recently as 2011, Jason Sudeikis left audiences in stitches at the Movie Awards, a perfect amuse-bouche ahead of his then-upcoming R-rated raunch-fest "Horrible Bosses."
Russell Brand joins the ranks of our great MTV Movie Awards hosts this year, but before we see what he's made of, let's dwell on the past a little bit longer. Which MTV Movie Awards host was the very best? Let us know by voting in the poll below!
