Sunday night’s (June 6) MTV Movie Awards delivered big laughs, eye-popping exclusive premieres and all sorts of eyebrow-raising memorable moments. But despite Katy Perry’s sexy performance of “California Gurls,” the crazy dance party thrown by Jennifer Lopez and Les Grossman and the tear-jerking acceptance speech for Best WTF? Moment from Ken Jeong, the most talked-about moment of the show was certainly the impromptu lip-lock between Sandra Bullock (who was in the process of accepting the MTV Generation Award for her lifelong body of work) and Scarlett Johansson. It was indeed a wild event that will not soon be forgotten.
But was it the best kiss in the history of MTV awards shows? Between the Movie Awards and the Video Music Awards, there has been a surprisingly long history of smooching between stars live on these celebratory broadcasts. Who could forget the legendary kiss between Madonna and Britney Spears at the top of the 2003 VMAs? (Nobody remembers that Christina Aguilera got a smooch from the Material Girl too.) The other big lip-locking moment from the VMAs? That would be the one shared between Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley at the top of the 1994 VMAs.
The MTV Movie Awards have a far more colorful history. In addition to the Bullock-Johansson kiss from Sunday night, there was the stage-length run-and-kiss that Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams executed in 2005 (which was then parodied by Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen in 2007). Of course, there was also the lip-lock between “Twilight” co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in 2009. And last night also saw a smooch between “Get Him to the Greek” stars Russell Brand and Jonah Hill.
