Two generations of rock stars saluted Johnny Depp, who’s something of a rock star, himself, come to think of it.
MTV MOVIE AWARDS: A BRAND NAME
Break-ups, Hook-ups, a Strip Tease and a Solo Make-out Session Among the Highlights
The Hunger Games and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn  Part 2 were among the big winners Sunday at the MTV Movie Awards, , held in the familiar setting of the Gibson Amphitheatre.

Russell Brand hosted the festivities, and while his ex, Katy Perry, didn’t actually appear—though the split inspired a joke from Brand in his opening monologue about looking around for his next wife—her upcoming documentary Katy Perry: Part of Me was heavily promoted during commercial breaks.   

Also unable to appear due to film commitments were the Harry Potter franchise’s Daniel Radcliffe, The Hunger GamesJennifer Lawrence and Twilight protagonist Rob Pattinson, prompting Kristen Stewart to (attempt to) make out with herself while accepting for Best Screen Kiss.

Channing Tatum
and Matthew McConoughey didn’t strip onstage, as various press previews had teased, but Magic Mike co-star Joe Manganiello did.

Two generations of rock stars saluted Johnny Depp, who’s something of a rock star, himself, as  Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry pointed out as they presented him with the Generation Award. Depp then joined The Black Keys on second guitar for "Gold on the Ceiling" and "Lonely Boy."

Charlize Theron
and Michael Fassbender were on hand to promote Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, while Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone—who received the first-ever MTV Trailblazer award—represented The Amazing Spider-Man.

As the L.A. Times put it, the summer movie that needed the MTV Movie Awards the least got the biggest boost. Christian Bale and director Christopher Nolan appeared on behalf of The Dark Knight Rises, a near-certain blockbuster when it hits U.S. theaters on July 20, Bale tearing up over the death of Heath Ledger, and Nolan stating that "every great story demands a great ending." But the biggest hook was the exclusive clip from the movie, which scored hugely positive reactions in the audience and on Twitter.
