MTV Movie Awards: 10 all-time greatest moments -- VIDEO

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.

Lindsay Lohan was poised and funny on 'Letterman'... really! -- VIDEO

, and enough poise” to come on the show despite all the jokes he’s made at her expense.

Before that earnestness peeked through, though, Letterman and Lohan mostly kept things light, discussing her first appearance on his old NBC show — as a 6-year-old, she played “Things Found on the Floor of the D Train” in a Halloween-themed sketch — and, of course, her checkered past. Lohan said she had planned to do a bit implying that  she was wearing a stolen dress; Letterman laughed heartily at the idea.

And Lohan, in turn, laughed pretty gamely when Letterman read through a few of his Lindsay jokes, taking special delight in this quip: “Lindsay Lohan’s in court so often the cafeteria has named a sandwich after her.” “They don’t let you eat there!” she said gleefully. “What is this, a gourmet court?” READ FULL STORY

Lindsay Lohan on 'Late Show': Watch her awkward exchange with David Letterman

Things are going to get awkward on the Late Show tonight.

As previously announced, America’s favorite headline maker Lindsay Lohan is visiting David Letterman tonight, and if this preview clip is any indication, the host isn’t going for the softball questions.

In the clip, made available by CBS this afternoon, Letterman takes the actress by surprise, shifting talk to her upcoming stay in rehab. “What are they rehabbing, first of all?” he asks. “We didn’t discuss this in the pre-interview,” Lohan replies, before calling rehab “a blessing.”

Watch their exchange below.

Lindsay Lohan is not pregnant or good at pranks

Lindsay Lohan is not pregnant.

The actress tweeted, “April Fools. Where’s everyone’s sense of humor?” minutes ago — an apparent rebuttal to a tweet last night (“It’s official. Pregnant…”), which has since been deleted. READ FULL STORY

James Deen on 'Fifty Shades of Grey': Christian is 'a character I could have a lot of fun with'

It’s time to play everyone’s favorite parlor game: Casting the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation. When EW spoke on the phone with James Deen last week, we asked The Canyons actor about rumors of possibility starring in the picture. As an adult film star, he already has quite a bit of experience (nearly 4,000 credits) with sex scenes on camera – which, to anyone who has read the book, seems to be a necessary prerequisite for the role. (A rep for Universal declined to comment on casting rumors).

Deen has actually yet to read the book, but like anyone, he’s heard quite a bit about it through friends – and he’d be up for portraying Christian Grey if asked. (Ironically, he’s already playing a Christian opposite Lindsay Lohan’s Tara in The Canyons) “It seems like a character I could have a lot of fun with,” he told EW. “I’ve heard really mixed responses about it, like, ‘Oh, it’s a cheesy Twilight wannabe.’… [but] I think it could be fun. I feel like it could be a really cool, fun role to work on.” READ FULL STORY

'Canyons' star James Deen on working with Lindsay Lohan, the 'NY Times' article, and always being known as 'that porn guy'

Like many a pop culture aficionado, The Canyons star James Deen read the
New York Times story on Lindsay Lohan/ The Canyons over the weekend. But unlike many fans gobbling up the article for intel on Lohan, her co-star Deen read the feature, which outlined Lohan’s love of chaos and inappropriate on-set behavior, with bemused wonder. “The best way I can describe [the Times article]

is actual life events reflected in a mirror and then retold for dramatic effect,” Deen said on the phone with EW this morning. “It’s accurate enough that it can’t be said that it’s not; it’s not a lie. But it’s twisted enough that if you were actually there you’re like, ‘Wait. That’s not exactly what happened.’”

What did actually happen was Deen (real name Bryan Matthew Sevilla), affectionately known as ‘the porn star next door’ with over 4,000 credits to his name, started hearing his name thrown around by screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis on Twitter. Ellis was looking for an actor for an upcoming noir thriller, and needed the person to be comfortable with a lot of nudity. Enter Deen. What Deen didn’t know at the time was the low-budget project that would become The Canyons, directed by Paul Schrader, would also be starring Lindsay Lohan — and that equaled a lot of extra drama.

Lindsay Lohan tweets trenchant Golden Globes analysis

It will surprise no one to learn that Lindsay Lohan evidently was not invited to last night’s Golden Globes. But thanks to the Internet, we can know all of her thoughts on the event anyway — the Canyons star spent Sunday evening live-tweeting the ceremony, proving once and for all that the Globes are just as important as a presidential debate.

Lindsay kicked the night off by reminding us all that she was once the fresh-faced star of Mean Girls, thus inspiring the Twittersphere to contemplate its own mortality:

She went on to express controversial opinions about Damien Lewis (“he is incredible”), Paul Rudd (“Paul Rudd is the best. Ever”), and Jessica Lange, who is Lohan’s “FAVOURITE!” even though neither she nor Lange is British (or Canadian). A tiny bit of negativity crept in, though, when Lindsay sensed that somebody was disrespecting her iconic Prairie Home Companion co-star:

7 biggest non-Lindsay Lohan takeaways from the 'New York Times' profile of 'The Canyons'

If you haven’t already, you absolutely must read this “Making of The Canyons/Lindsay Lohan profile” that was published in the New York Times yesterday. The article, “Here is What Happens When You Cast Lindsay Lohan in Your Movie,” is a wonderful behind-the-scenes look at the low-budget film The Canyons that was shot while Lohan continued her public struggles. Between the constant smoking, delusions about her life, how Paul Schrader got her to work and her issues with co-star James Deen, the whole thing is a fascinating read.

For a movie that raises some eyebrows when described (in the article, screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis describes it as a “pranky noirish thriller,” a vision the first trailer definitely backs up), the film comes with quite a pedigree. Directed by Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) and written by Ellis, the Lohan-starrer was supposed to be a look at L.A. from the point of view of twenty-somethings. Writer Stephen Rodrick was on set for a lot of the filming, and his stories paint a picture of dysfunction before, during, and after the shoot.

Below, the biggest non-Lohan revelations we learned from Rodrick’s New York Times story: READ FULL STORY

Lindsay Lohan in totally NSFW 'InAPPropriate Comedy' trailer... but she's not the saddest thing in it

This is a NSFW trailer for a NSFW sketch-comedy movie featuring NSFW language, NSFW sexual innuendo, and NSFW racially-insensitive remarks. But the aptly-titled InAPPropriate Comedy stars Oscar-winner Adrien Brody and features de rigeur cameo from Lindsay Lohan, who clearly was trolling for ways to make her Scary Movie 5 pop-in look sublime in comparison.

It’s directed by Vince Offer, the infomercial guy who brought you the Slap Chop, and that seems about right. You’re going to watch the trailer below no matter how much I tell you it will make your soul ache, so just get it over with. READ FULL STORY

All of Tarantino's pop culture references in chronological order -- VIDEO

Quentin Tarantino makes no secret of his encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture. His characters are fountains of obscure movie references and his films themselves are functional homages to bygone genre flicks. Nobody would blame you for getting a little bogged down in all of those trivia bits.

But now, thanks to the diligent folks over at College Humor, you won’t have to. They’ve put together a supercut with all of Tarantino’s pop culture references, and what’s more, they’re arranged in chronological order. So, starting with a nod to silent film star Max Linder in Inglorious Basterds, it works its way through the decades until it screeches to a halt on a Lindsay Lohan comment in Death Proof. Think of it as really profane, rapid-fire history lesson from a distinguished cinephile. Yeah, that’s Tarantino in a nutshell.
