MTV Movie Awards 2014: Zac Efron leaves his shirt off, plus 6 more On the Scene observations

Being in the MTV Movie Awards audience is a powerful thing. When the crowd yelled “Take it off!” as Zac Efron accepted Best Shirtless Performance, for instance, Rita Ora actually heard that call to arms and did the people’s bidding. She didn’t want an angry mob on her hands, after all.

But Zac Efron’s abs weren’t the only perk of sitting in the Nokia Theatre crowd Sunday night. Check out all our observations from inside the arena below: READ FULL STORY

MTV Movie Awards airs Paul Walker tribute -- VIDEO

MTV honored Paul Walker at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, bringing the late actor’s longtime Fast & Furious costar Jordana Brewster onstage to introduce a memorial video. Brewster offered some emotional memories of Walker, noting that for him, “Every day was an adventure to be tackled…he never asked for credit or glory. He was just a really good guy.”

MTV Movie Awards: Here's the drinking game

It’s time for the biggest award show of the year!

Not really, of course. The MTV Movie Awards isn’t so much a legitimate award show as it is a way for stars to plug their big summer movies by trying to make a “viral” moment happen without any backlash. But, any award show that wants to give Channing Tatum a Trailblazer award can’t be all bad. Fingers crossed the inevitable look-back montage includes a little She’s The Man.

Tonight, make like the stars and imbibe a little during the ceremony. It can only make the unique combination of Conan O’Brien, Ice Cube, and Rihanna funnier. READ FULL STORY

A Dramacalypse is upon us.

Mad Men. Game of Thrones. The Good WifeOnce Upon a TimeCalifornication, if you’re into that kind of thing. They’re all airing new episodes this Sunday — and so are comedies like Veep and Silicon Valley. And reality staples like The Amazing Race. And the MTV Movie Awards. All this, plus a new hour of NBC’s Believe — what’s a couch potato to do? READ FULL STORY

MTV Movie Awards: Conan O'Brien plans to show some skin, ruin 'Game of Thrones' for you

Sure, the MTV Movie Awards are this Sunday, but it’s not the only game in town: Over on HBO, the competition will be a brand-new episode of Game of Thrones. So how does host Conan O’Brien plan on combating the swords-and-sandals series? With both skin and spoilers, naturally.

“I’d like people to really see a lot of my body for the first time,” O’Brien tells EW of his plans as host. “What’s interesting is that the world has changed so much since when I first got into television; you have to be increasingly fearless. So, I want people to see parts of my body that no one should see.

“I’ve also gotten a hold of the Game of Thrones episode that’s on that night,” O’Brien continues. “So on the day before the awards, I’m going to get out as many spoilers as possible to kill the Game of Thrones experience for people. Then, out of either despair or rage, they’ll have to tune in to see the MTV Movie Awards.” READ FULL STORY

MTV Movie Awards: Conan and Ice Cube attempt a death-defying stunt -- VIDEO

The 2014 MTV Movie Awards promises to be “the biggest one you’ll ever see.”

For this Sunday’s live broadcast, host Conan O’Brien has assembled stars, spoofs, pyrotechnics galore, and death-defying stunts to wow the millennial audiences. As he joked to EW earlier, he realized quickly that his Goonies monologue wasn’t exactly going to cut it for the sophisticated kids.

Stunts seemed like a good quick fix. If only he was brave enough to actually go through with them.

MTV Movie Awards: Conan ditches Andy Richter, teams with Ice Cube instead

This Sunday, Conan O’Brien will host the 2014 MTV Movie Awards — but unlike his regular hosting gig on TBS, he’ll be on stage without his longtime sidekick Andy Richter.

“Andy’s not reliable,” O’Brien explains to EW. “I’d love to bring Andy — in fact, I’ve tried to bring Andy to many things. But he’s like the country singer George Jones late in his career: Maybe he’ll show, maybe he won’t.”

“Andy pretty much lives in an RV,” O’Brien adds. “It’s very hard; he doesn’t have any representation. You can tell. Whenever I talk to Andy’s ‘manager’ on the phone, I can tell it’s Andy from a payphone, doing a slightly different voice. And then I can always hear someone banging on the door.” READ FULL STORY

Conan O'Brien hosting the MTV Movie Awards: Does it make sense?

The MTV Movie Awards is that awards show that can only ever be one of two things: Either a semi-painful mix of awkward and boring, or a lot of fun. With awards like Best Kiss and Best Fight, the acceptance speeches are always unpredictable (as are the clothing choices). But perhaps the most unpredictable aspect of all is the host.

Throughout the past four years, hosts have included Aziz Ansari, Jason Sudeikis, Russell Brand, and Rebel Wilson, each of whom created a very different show experience. So what can we expect from the 2014 MTV Movie Awards now that Conan O’Brien has been announced as the host?

Conan’s success will depend solely on where he focuses. Don’t get me wrong, I love Conan. But like all hosts, he needs to be able to recognize his strengths. Where Conan is best is in his interaction with others, whether it’s skits that make others feel slightly uncomfortable or conversations with celebs, when he delivers that unexpected (probably self-deprecating) line that makes everyone laugh. Can he deliver a funny stand-up bit on his own? Sure. But he’s much better when he has someone to play off of (hence, Andy Richter).

If we’re basing this on past performances, then his opening bit as host of the 2006 Emmy Awards gives me hope. By placing himself inside some of the most popular shows, Conan was able to use his creativity to create something that was pretty fantastic. I’d like to officially request more of this: READ FULL STORY

Rebel Wilson wigs-up as Jennifer Lawrence's twin sister in bonus MTV skit -- VIDEO

So Rebel Wilson had kind of a rough time hosting the MTV Movie Awards last night, though one of her best moments came courtesy of other people’s buzz. And it turns out there was more of that. As this axed sketch shows — in which, True Life-style, we follow a day in the life of Katherine Lawrence, Jennifer’s twin sister and semi-professional shade-thrower — Wilson had a 2-minute answer to everyone who tuned in asking, “Where’s J-Law?”

Why was it cut? (Apparently the ceremony was running over into The Show with Vinny.) Who does Wilson’s wigs? At what point do the references to “boob meat” and boners tip her comedy formula from “screwball-nasty” to “day-old and gross”? Take a look and wonder after the jump.
