Kevin Hart and the rock roast Marvel super Heroes
‘Leo got f***ed by a bear!’ Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Kevin Hart perform profanity laden rap about actor DiCaprio as they host MTV Movie Awards
There were more F-bombs than awards doled out at the MTV Movie Awards.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Kevin Hart perfectly encapsulated a raunchy night with a profanity laden rap about Leonardo DiCaprio’s infamous bear-mauling scene in The Revenant.
The track was supposed to be about the year’s films but there was clearly one focus as they repeated the refrain ‘Leo got (expletive) by a bear.’
The two talented stars were not the only ones that poked fun at the expense of the 41-year-old actor as Adam Devine, Anthony Mackie and Rebel Wilson all got in on the action.
Earlier in the night, the two hosts got their post-apocalypse on to kick off gala award show.
The two hosts opened it Mad Max style by riding through Warner Bros. Studios strapped to the front of a tricked-out truck.
The event featured plenty of sketches, profanity and movie trailers but there were still some gongs handed out as Star Wars: The Force Awakens took the top prize at the star-studded gala.
The audience at Warner Bros. Studios waved what looked like red and blue lightsabers as star Daisy Ridley and director J.J. Abrams accepted the final golden popcorn trophy at Saturday night’s ceremony.
The prize capped off the irreverent awards show, which presents fan-voted film awards and touts upcoming releases.
The Force Awakens, the third-highest grossing film of all time, led with 11 nominations and beat out blockbusters such as Jurassic World and Avengers: Age of Ultron for movie of the year. Lead star Daisy Ridley won best breakthrough performance.
‘It’s especially amazing to be part of a film that represents all genders – two genders – and races and ages in such a positive and aspirational way,’ Ridley said.
They set the tone early for the evening as they opened with curse words and insults, at one point dressing up as Batman and Superman to throw barbs at the A-list superhero actors in attendance.
Will Smith and Melissa McCarthy each received special honors, and their heartfelt speeches were respites of sincerity in an expletive-laden show that featured more F-bombs than awards.
Smith, who was joined at the ceremony in Los Angeles by sons Trey and Jaden, joked that he thought his honour was ‘code for the old-ass dude award’.
‘This is absolutely beautiful,’ he said. ‘I released my first record when I was 17. I’m 47 years old now. This June marks 30 years in this business.
‘I’m dedicated to being a light in this world.’
Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry, who presented Smith with his award, said: ‘Will is a champion for diversity in Hollywood, blazing a path for actors by showing that someone of any colour can play any role, and can open any movie and win any award and be the biggest freaking movie star in the whole world.’
Actress Queen Latifah also paid tribute to Smith and described him as the ‘king of all blockbusters’.
