The MTV Movie & TV Awards is a film and television awards show presented annually on MTV. The nominees are decided by producers and executives at MTV. Winners are decided online by the general public. Presently voting is done through MTV's official website through a TV Awards voting website; the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards took place on May 7, 2017 and featured the first time men and women competing jointly in the acting categories. Winners are presented with the "golden popcorn" statue, made by Society Awards. Unlike its sister event MTV Video Music Awards, the MTV Movie Awards were taped and broadcast a few days later; the entire production was taped in a different order than what the MTV viewing audience saw. For example, the show's host would tape all his/her monologues and introductions at one time, all the musical acts would perform one after the other. Celebrities would only appear at the live taping for the announcement of their award category, members of the general audience fill-in their vacant seats during the other times.
Through editing, MTV was able to present to its viewing audience an awards show which appears to be taped in live sequence, with celebrities remaining for the entire show. This method of production allowed profanity to be edited from the show and is more convenient for the celebrities; the actual live taping aired same-day on pay-per-view channels in most metropolitan cities around the world. Some awards telecasts had been shown in television syndication. However, in 2007, this changed, as MTV and Survivor producer Mark Burnett announced that the 2007 edition would be broadcast live on MTV for the first time on June 3, 2007 in Los Angeles; the 2016 broadcast was the first show since 2006 not to air live as the event was taped on April 9, 2016 before airing on Viacom's MTV networks the following day on April 10. Since 2007, polls for several awards were voted by online users on MTV's official website. Best Movie Best Show Best Performance in a Movie Best Performance in a Show Best Comedic Performance Best Scared-As-Shit Performance Best Villain Best Hero Best Kiss Best Fight Best On-Screen Team Best Reality Series Best Music Documentary Best Scene Stealer The Lifetime Achievement Award was given to movie personalities, including fictional characters, who made an impact on popular culture.
Prior to announcing the winner MTV would air testimonials from major Hollywood celebrities praising the winners greatness while only offering a slight tease as to who the winner was. Following Clint Howard's win and emotional reception speech, the award was discontinued. 1992: Jason Voorhees 1993: The Three Stooges 1994: John Shaft 1995: Jackie Chan 1996: Godzilla 1997: Chewbacca 1998: Clint Howard The Silver Bucket of Excellence is an award, given to a film that has made lasting impact on moviegoers and the MTV audience. It was further defined in 2006 as honoring a "film of the past that resonates with more meaning today." 2005: The Breakfast Club – awarded to Anthony Michael Hall, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy 2006: Do the Right Thing – awarded to Spike Lee The MTV Generation Award is the successor to the MTV Lifetime Achievement Award, though it is more serious than its predecessor. The recipient of the award is celebrated for great achievement in movies; the distinction "is given to an artist who has shown us a variety of impressive roles, a personal and professional flair and of course, an awesome level of talent."
The MTV Trailblazer Award recipient spearheads the way for others. The award is given to an actor of young age that managed to inspire others with a diverse portfolio of work and a transcendent reputation in the public eye. 2013: Will Ferrell 2015: Kevin Hart 2016: Melissa McCarthy Since 1993, scenes are spoofed from that year's most popular films, although television shows and older movies have been chosen. This may include sound and video montages, replacing some of the original cast with other actors mocking the scenes of that film; the diversity of the spoofs can vary from one dialogue to several long scenes, including fighting and action sequences.

Holli brings Jack back into the Cool World and the two have sex, causing Holli to transform into a human. While Frank attempts to mend his relationship with doodle Lonette, he temporarily leaves detective duties to his assistant Nails. Jack and Holli leave for the real world, causing damage to the interdimensional barrier between the real world and the Cool World.
Both Jack and Holli begin flickering from their human form to their doodle forms: Jack's doodle form is a stocky man with a moustache while Holli's new doodle form is a sexy clown. Frank discovers that Nails has been done away with and decides to venture into the real world to pursue Jack and Holli. While contemplating their situation, Holli tells Jack about the "Spike of Power," an artifact placed on the top of a Las Vegas casino by a doodle who crossed into the real world, admits she wants to use it to become human permanently; when Jack displays skepticism about the idea, Holli abandons Jack to search for the spike on her own. Arriving in the real world, Frank breaks into Jack's apartment and suggests they team up to stop Holli before she causes further damage, they arrive at the casino.

The screenplay for the 1972 version of The Getaway was written by Walter Hill.
In 1990, Hill's wife, Hildy Gottlieb, had left her job as an agent to head up Alec Baldwin's production company, Meadowbrook Productions. Hill and Baldwin were friendly – at one stage they were going to make The Fugitive together before being replaced by Andrew Davis and Harrison Ford. According to Baldwin, Hill always wanted to film his original script of The Getaway before it had been changed by Sam Peckinpah. Hill was going to direct with Baldwin starring according to Baldwin, "they got into a hassle about the budget and Walter split to go do Geronimo, he gave everybody his blessing to go do it without him."Producer David Foster approached Roger Donaldson to direct in Hill's place. Donaldson said no as he did not want to do a remake, he read the script "and I liked it," said Donaldson. "And I rented the original movie, which I'd never seen, I liked that, too. I saw. There were lots of things about it that appealed to me: I love the Southwest, I love the genre of the road movie, I love a thriller and I like the sort of underlying conflicts of the relationships in that movie."Baldwin said he "always wanted to do a movie that required what I consider to be movie acting, that it's not what you do, but what you don't do.
It's all about small, less and less. An action film is a perfect opportunity for that. There's always a steady flow of action films – it's the most mined material – but what distinguishes an action movie is the acting."Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger had fallen in love while making The Marrying Man together and he asked her to play the female role. Basinger said she "loved" the original movie "a lot, it had this cult status. But my first reaction to Alec's suggestion was no." She went back to the original Jim Thompson novel to see if there was a more substantial theme to the story. I saw that this theme could be summed up in one word – trust.... And I said to Alec, "See; this is all about trust. These two people can't trust anything, they can't trust their colleagues. They can't trust each other, and when mistrust occurs, it breeds vi
