MTV Movie Awards taps ‘Towers’

Kudofest features perfs from 50 Cent, Pink, Tatu

See winners“The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” was the top winner at the 2003 MTV Movie Awards, nabbing four tubs of the coveted gold popcorn with awards for action sequence, onscreen team, virtual performance (Gollum) and movie.

Kudofest, held Saturday night at the Shrine Auditorium, was co-hosted by Seann William Scott and Justin Timberlake.

Actors relished the chance to relive their most famous dialogue. Harrison Ford said, “Get off my plane!” from “Air Force One,” Keanu Reeves uttered the infamous “Whoah” a la “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure,” and a pint-sized Daveigh Chase, from “The Ring,” added a chilling “Everyone will suffer” to the end of her speech after winning best villain.

Femme pop duo Tatu was a big hit with a performance that included a dancing troup garbed in Catholic school girl uniforms. At the end of the song, the dancers stripped down to their skivvies, showering the audience with their blouses and skirts.
