The Hunger Games was able to scoop four out of the 10 nominations at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards. These include:
- Best Male Performance – Josh Hutcherson
- Best Female Performance – Jennifer Lawrence
- Bet Fight – Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence versus Alexander Ludwig
- Best Onscreen Transformation – Elizabeth Banks
On the flipside, the Hunger Games was not able to get the Best Movie and Best Kiss awards because it has been given to the Twihards for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.” The Best Cast and Best Hero were given to the Harry Potter family. Liam Hemsworth failed to charm the MTV organizers for Shailene Woodley was chosen as the Breakthrough Artist.
Despite the failure of the fandom to get the Best Movie, Best Cast, and Best Kiss, the Hunger Games was the biggest winner in the event. Catching Fire here we come!
Below are the pictures of Hunger Games stars Josh Hutcherson, Alexander Ludwig and Elizabeth Banks at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards. Jennifer Lawrence couldn’t make it in person because she is filming her new flick “Serena” in Prague but there was a recorded video for her acceptance speech.

Good news! Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Alexander Ludwig were able to get the Best Fight Golden Popcorn at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards. Josh and Alexander accept the award, Jennifer Lawrence is in Prague for her film Serena. Watch their acceptance speeches below:
Elizabeth Banks won the Best Onscreen Transformation for her role as Effie Trinket of the Hunger Games at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards. Here is her one-of-a-kind acceptance speech.
The competition in the coveted category was stiff. In her first-ever Movie Awards win, Lawrence beat out heavyweights like Kristin Wiig (“Bridesmaids”), MTV Trailblazer Emma Stone (“Crazy, Stupid, Love”), Emma Watson (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2”) and Rooney Mara (“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”).
Lawrence couldn’t be in attendance — she’s shooting a movie in Prague — but she addressed the win in a pre-taped message. “Thank you, MTV and all the fans, for this award,” she said. “I want to thank [author] Suzanne Collins for creating such a an iconic, powerful character in Katniss Everdeen. It’s been such an honor to portray her and have audiences around the world embrace this movie.”
While she appreciated the win, there was one thing she didn’t appreciate: “I can’t eat this,” she joked of her popcorn-shaped prize.
But, Lawrence wasn’t the only tribute taking home Movie Awards. Josh Hutcherson won Best Male Performance for playing Katniss’ District 12 pal, Peeta Mellark. Like Lawrence, he beat out a “Harry Potter” star, the main wizard himself, Daniel Radcliffe, as well as Ryan Gosling for “Drive,” Joseph Gordon-Levitt for “50/50” and Channing Tatum for “The Vow.”
“The Hunger Games” tied with “Bridesmaids” for the most nominations at this year’s show, including Best Cast, Best Fight and Best Kiss. It’s also up for the night’s big prize, Movie of the Year, where it faced off against “Bridesmaids,” “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2,” “The Help” and “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1.”
