Conan masterfully film-bombed 50 of the biggest and most eclectic names in pop culture including Taylor Swift, Sir Anthony Hopkins, the cast of "The Big Bang Theory," Adam Sandler, Katy Perry, Andy Samberg, Jack White, Ashton Kutcher, Martin Scorsese, Demi Moore, Emma Watson, Russell Crowe, Paul Rudd, Jessica Alba, Lupita Nyong'o and Skrillex. Telecast from Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE, the evening celebrated fan-favorite movies with comedy, action, music and of course, Hollywood superstars.
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" captured the most golden popcorns of the evening, with Josh Hutcherson grabbing "Best Male Performance," Jennifer Lawrence winning "Best Female Performance," and Johnny Depp presenting the star-studded cast with the coveted "Movie of the Year" award. The cast of "Entourage" reunited for the first-time on-stage to honor actor and producer Mark Wahlberg with the "Generation Award" for his extensive, diverse body of work in the film and television industry. Quintessential leading man Channing Tatum won the third annual "Trailblazer Award." Jordana Brewster honored Paul Walker with a heartfelt, personal speech that introduced a moving tribute spotlighting his career.
Zac Effron won "Best Shirtless" award, just before Rita Ora helped him show the WORLD exactly why he was worthy of this accolade. Conan mashed up two of the most popular award categories by debuting the first-ever "best kissing fight" with Will Arnett. Later in the evening, Orlando Bloom and Evangeline Lilly won "Best Fight" for "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug." "Best Kiss" went to the lip-smacking threesome of Emma Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and Will Poulter for "We're the Millers," while presenters Zac Efron, Seth Rogen and Dave Franco hosted their own kissing Contest with two women from the audience, and even Seth Rogen's mom. Shailene Woodley won the first-ever "Favorite Character" award, which was voted on socially, for her role in "Divergent."
The evening was also infused with unforgettable musical performances. Grammy® Award-winning, multi-platinum superstars, Eminem and Rihanna re-teamed for an emotionally charged first live performance of their #1 smash single "The Monster." Backed by a full piece band and a nightmare-come-to-life backdrop, the duo brought the audience to their feet with an explosive performance that blended dark and surreal imagery with raw emotion.
Fresh from the stages of Coachella, Ellie Goulding and Zedd brought the Divergent soundtrack to life. Goulding delivered a stripped down version of her new hit single, "Beating Heart," featuring Zedd on piano. The DJ then took the turntables for a high-octane performance of "Find You" alongside Matthew Koma and Miriam Bryant. Surrounded by a masked fan army, MTV Artists to Watch twenty one pilots delivered a stark and haunting introspective performance of their new single, "Car Radio," which built to a pulsating crescendo.
