Tonight, MTV will broadcast its 21st annual Movie Awards. Truth: Twenty years ago, the golden popcorn for Best Movie went to A Few Good Men (following that: Menace II Society, Pulp Fiction, and Se7en). Safe to say, the show’s tone has changed pretty dramatically from those edgy early days when Dennis Miller hosted and Denzel Washington won Best Male Performance for Malcolm X. (I personally trace the trajectory shift back to the short-lived decision to create a Best Sandwich in a Movie category in 1996.) Yet even as the show’s gotten more mainstream (read: Twilight- and Hunger Games-saturated), it’s never failed to churn out cultural flashpoints that have ranged from steamy to awkward, subversive to surreal, and everything in between. Below, we run down the 10 most memorable moments.

Remember how much fun we had watching every single one of Kelly Clarkson’s covers from her Stronger tour?
Well, now that ABC’s singing competition Duets has (mercifully) wrapped, the original American Idol is back on the road for a summer tour with The Fray, and when she’s not recording theme songs for the Dallas Cowboys, she’s serving up more nightly fan-requested covers. Guess what? They’re as jaw-droppingly gorgeous as ever.
Over the last three weeks, Clarkson has brought her powerhouse pipes to songs like “Wide Awake” by Katy Perry, “We Are Young” by Fun., and “Not Over You” by Gavin DeGraw. On Friday, she even donned a zip-up hoodie and rapped “Lose Yourself” by Eminem.
Basically, you need to see these 14 performances, and because we care about you faithful readers so much, we’ve compiled them all below. Enjoy! READ FULL STORY »
