LOS ANGELES —
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” earned the prize for best film at Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards, besting even top Oscar winner “12 Years a Slave.”
“Hunger Games” stars also took home some of the night’s biggest awards. Jennifer Lawrence won best female performance and Josh Hutcherson was voted best male performer.
Zany categories were also in abundance. Zac Efron earned best shirtless performance, while properly accepting his award shirtless.
Honors went to Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum. And a special tribute was paid to the late Paul Walker.
But it was summer movie teasers, from “X-Men: Days of Future Past” to “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” that dominated the live ceremony hosted by Conan O’Brien.
