Conan O'Brien is hosted the ceremony. Voting was done by the public on MTV's website.

"The Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence did not attend the ceremony, but Hutcherson and "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" co-star Sam Clafin were there. Hutcherson and Clafin accepted the prize for Movie of the Year. In his speech, Hutcherson thanked many people, including the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was a cast member of three of "The Hunger Games" movies.

"We're the Millers" and "This Is the End" also won two MTV Movie Awards each. "We're the Millers" won Best Kiss (for Jennifer Aniston, Will Poulter and Emma Roberts) and Breakthrough Performance (for Poulter). "This Is the End" won Best Musical Moment (for Backstreet Boys, Jay Baruchel, Seth Rogen and Craig Robinson) and Best Cameo (for Rihanna).

With eight nominations each, "American Hustle" and "The Wolf of Wall Street" were the leading contenders going into the ceremony. In the end, "The Wolf of Wall Street" won two prizes: Best Comedic Performance (for Jonah Hill) and Best #WTF Moment (for Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie's scene where his intoxicated Jordan Belfort character tries to drive a Lamborghini). "American Hustle" won one award: Best Female Performance (for Jennifer Lawrence).

Mark Wahlberg was honored with the MTV Generation Award, which he accepted in a profanity-laden speech. Channing Tatum was given the MTV Trailblazer Award. The late Paul Walker received a special tribute during the show.

The ceremony also featured the expected type of comedic skits and on-stage antics that have become characteristic of the MTV Movie Awards.

O'Brien opened the show with a prerecorded skit about breaking the record for most celebrity cameos at the MTV Movie Awards. The skit included O'Brien bursting in on several celebrities who were in on the joke.

Zac Efron (winner of the Best Shirtless Performance award, for "That Awkward Moment") took off his shirt to show off his chiseled chest after he gave his acceptance speech.

Later, "Neighbors" co-stars Efron, Seth Rogen and Dave Franco did an awkward skit in which all three actors kissed women from the audience who got the chance to kiss them by "finding" golden ticket underneath their seats. In Rogen's case, the woman was supposed to be his mother, and he pretended to make out with her. All of the women were obviously actresses hired for the skit.

Other presenters included Lupita Nyong'o, Seth MacFarlane, Amanda Seyfried, Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Jared Leto, Rita Ora, Jessica Alba, Ellen Page, Mila Kunis, Hill, Orlando Bloom, Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Nicki Minaj, Kate Upton, Jordana Brewster, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Adrian Grenier, Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Dillon, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Iggy Azalea, Miles Teller and Johnny Depp.

The musical performances at the ceremony were from Twenty One Pilots; Rihanna and Eminem; and Ellie Goulding and Zedd.

Of course, the MTV Movie Awards have very different voters than those for the Academy Awards. Fantasy films, superhero movies and comedies tend to dominate the winners' list at the MTV Movie Awards.

Almost all of the nominated films are available on VOD, DVD, Blu-ray and digital download.
