‘Cabo’ draws nods

World Brief

Actioner “Matando cabos” was the big winner at the third MTV Movie Awards Mexico on Friday, bringing home three laurels.

“Cabos,” the second most successful Mexican pic of last year with $5.7 million in receipts, nabbed the people’s choice award, actor for Tony Dalton, and the most bizarre sex award for a scene between thesps Jacqueline Voltaire and Silverio Palacios.

Pic was overlooked at Mexico’s Ariel film awards in March. However, “Temporada de patos,” which received a whopping 11 Ariels, brought home only one MTV award — best actress for Danny Perrea.

In all, eight prizes were handed out at the event, more party than formal awards show, and held in a popular Mexico City music venue
