Awards Watch: MTV Movie Awards 2008

Transformers may have snatched the Best Movie prize at the 17th Annual MTV Movie Awards this past weekend, but it was Johnny Depp who was the biggest winner, nabbing two Golden Popcorn awards. Depp was voted Best Villain for his throat-slashing title character in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Best Comedic Performance for his Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. The latter was his third MTV Movie Award as the rum-soaked swashbuckler of the blockbuster franchise.

I Am Legend's Will Smith and Juno's Ellen Page took the top performance prizes, while Hairspray's Zac Efron trumped the Superbad boys for Breakthrough Performance. Three 2008 movies, Step Up 2 the Streets, Never Back Down and Iron Man, round out the rest of the winners.
