The MTV Audience Has Spoken as the Stars of the Moment Were All At The '2007 MTV Movie Awards'

MTV Viewers' Night at the Movies Was Overflowing with their Favorite Celebrities Including Johnny Depp, Jack Nicholson, Cameron Diaz, Seth Rogen, Jessica Biel, Robin Williams, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Josh Duhamel, Samuel L. Jackson, Victoria Beckham, Amanda Bynes, Chris Tucker, Shia LaBeouf, John Travolta, Zac Efron, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Evans and Ioan Gruffudd

And the Big Winner of the Night Was ... YOU! At-Home Viewers Took Center Stage with Interactive Web Wall and New "Best Movie Spoof" Winner

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., June 3 -- MTV pushed the limits for the "2007 MTV Movie Awards" as it aired LIVE for the first time welcoming stars, celebrities and fans alike. Hosted by the incomparable Sarah Silverman, the sixteenth annual ceremony celebrated the audiences' favorite performances and films, and most importantly honored the fans for the first time ever. The 2007 MTV Movie Awards welcomed legendary actors Jack Nicholson and Johnny Depp as they made their first-ever appearance at the ceremony. The night also featured heart-stopping and eye-popping performances by Rihanna, featuring Jay-Z as they performed "Umbrella," the #1 song in the country. And making her first-ever live U.S. television debut, British singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse brought the house down with her electrifying performance of hit single, "Rehab."

"Best Performance" honors went to Johnny Depp for his role in "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest." The MTV audience celebrated Gerard Butler and The Uber Immortal who won "Best Fight" for their performance in "300." Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen won "Best Kiss" for "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," making it the second year in a row that guys have snagged the best kiss award. Sacha Baron Cohen also took home "Best Comedic Performance" for "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" and "Transformers" beat out seven other yet to be released films winning the award for "Best Summer Movie You Haven't Seen Yet."

The night started off in true Sarah Silverman style as she kept the censors on their toes with a song whose only airable words were "flippety floppety."

Mike Myers once again had one of the most memorable moments of the night as he accepted the "MTV Generation Award" presented by "Shrek the Third" co- star Cameron Diaz. Recognizing him for his dynamic career and acting roles that have captured and entertained MTV audiences for years, Myers accepted the award in true comedic fashion, with an ode to Austin Powers and a mojo-induced dance number.

Newcomer Jaden Smith accepted his first-ever award show win for "Breakthrough Performance," in an over-the-top and side-splitting home video fitting for a kid with superstar parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith.

As always, the MTV Movie Awards was filled with laugh-out-loud film parodies including "Boratitis," with Susan Sarandon, Kevin Spacey, Marilyn Manson, Amanda Bynes, Matt Dillon, Aaron Eckhart, Heather Graham, Jennifer Hudson, Eva Mendes, Ryan Reynolds and T.I., raising awareness of the spreading epidemic, "Boratitis," which finds people unable to stop imitating everyone's favorite Kazakhstani.

Saying goodbye to boring award show music when acceptance speeches run too long, the "2007 MTV Movie Awards" introduced a naked fat man, a la Ken Davitian's character in "Borat," chasing winners off the stage.

The "2007 MTV Movie Awards" also invited viewers to take control of the night as MTV rolled out the first-ever "Best Movie Spoof" category where they had the opportunity to submit their own original movie shorts parodying films from the past year. MTV and Yahoo! partnered to launch this interactive website via Yahoo! Movies which explored the convergence of entertainment and technology like never before. In the weeks leading up to the show, fans submitted more than 400 film spoofs and throughout the contest the finalists received over 250,000 votes combined.

The Web Wall kept a constant flow of fans in the spotlight and on the stage as Sarah interacted with the viewers at home. While Sarah searched for a presenter for the "Breakthrough Performance" category she turned to the all- important Web Wall for a viewer to save the day.

Under Surveillance & On Demand - MTV.com covered all the action on the carpet and backstage that fans didn't see on TV. There were cameras all over the backstage area -- from green rooms, to dressing rooms -- giving viewers rare glimpses as only MTV could provide. Exclusive interviews with winners and presenters were also available on MTV.com only. This year we truly did not know a winner until the last possibly minute, as the MTV Movie Awards left the "Best Movie" Category open throughout the show for live voting.

The "2007 MTV Movie Awards" welcomed the biggest names in music, movies and more throughout the night. Presenters included Cameron Diaz, Jessica Biel, John Krasinski, Mandy Moore, Robin Williams, Justin Long, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Josh Duhamel, Samuel L. Jackson, Amanda Bynes, Chris Tucker, Seth Rogen, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Chiklis, John Travolta, Zac Efron, Tyrese Gibson, Andy Samberg, Chris Evans and Ioan Gruffudd join the growing list of presenters at the "2007 MTV Movie Awards." And MTV welcomed Victoria Beckham as she made the "2007 MTV Movie Awards" her first official television appearance since moving to the states.
