On Sunday night (June 6), Scarlett Johansson and Sandra Bullock turned heads and raised eyebrows when then shared a smooch while Bullock was accepting her MTV Generation Award on the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. It immediately jumped onto our ever-evolving list of the best girl-on-girl moments in pop culture, and we asked the audience whether or not it was the best kiss ever at an MTV awards show. They had some stiff competition, including the kiss between Madonna and Britney Spears from the 2003 Video Music Awards, the amazing stage-length run-and-kiss that Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams executed at the 2005 Movie Awards and the kiss between Michael Jackson and then-wife Lisa Marie Presley at the beginning of the 1994 Video Music Awards.
But when the final votes were tallied, Johansson and Bullock stood on top of the heap by a large margin. They won the top position with 44 percent of the vote, with their nearest competition — the Spears/Madonna smooch — coming in a distant second with 23 percent. Gosling and McAdams were the only other pair to grab double-digits, as they came in third place with 14 percent of the vote. Surprisingly, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart — the two stars “Twilight,” easily the biggest series of teen films of the past 20 years — only picked up seven percent, tied with Jackson and Presley.
So in addition to her MTV Generation Award (which she received for her tremendous body of work), Bullock also takes home the prize of the best kiss in the history of MTV awards shows. Between those two prizes and her Oscar, that’s a lot of prestige.
Who do you hope kisses at the 2010 Video Music Awards in September? Let us know in the comments!
