MTV Movie Awards 2012

Catch our favourite looks from the red carpet

Never mind the Jubilee, those on the other side of the Atlantic were gearing up this weekend for the annual MTV Movie Awards. With categories that included Best Fight, Best Kiss and Best On-Screen Dirtbag, the show has always been a huge draw for the most fresh and talented artists in the industry. Performances during the evening came courtesy of The Black Keys - with a nice little cameo from Johnny Depp - and Janelle Monae, while other highlights included winner Jennifer Anniston (for her turn in Horrible Bosses) thanking 'the TV show Friends' and Charlie Sheen declaring '[his] whole life has been a party movie'. See below for our favourite red carpet looks of the evening!
