"The Hunger Games" the Top Winner at MTV Movie Awards

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif.) -- The Hunger Games ate up the competition at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night, collecting four golden popcorn trophies, the most of any film.

The blockbuster flick received the awards for best female and male performance for stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, respectively.  It also earned the prizes for best fight and best on-screen transformation, the latter for Elizabeth Banks' role as Effie Trinket.

The Hunger Games entered the ceremony tied with Bridesmaids as the leading nominee, with eight nods apiece.

The Hunger Games did not claim the top award, movie of the year.  Instead, it went to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1, which also won best kiss.

Jennifer Aniston picked up the brand-new on-screen dirtbag award for her performance in the comedy Horrible Bosses.

Johnny Depp accepted the Generation Award for his career achievements, and also performed with the rock band The Black Keys.  Emma Stone was presented with the inaugural Trailblazer Award.

The MTV Movie Awards were hosted by Russell Brand, who referenced his ex-wife, pop star Katy Perry, during his monologue.  Noting that he began his relationship with Perry after they met at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, which he also hosted, the British comedian said he was going to keep his "eyes peeled" for his next wife.  He then yelled out the name of actor Michael Fassbender, whose nude appearance in Shame inspired numerous jokes by Brand.  

Here are the winners of the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, held Sunday night at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, Calif.:

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1

It's Game Over for "Hunger Games" Director 

Target Presse Agentur Gmbh/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- He may have called the shots on the blockbuster movie The Hunger Games, but director Gary Ross says he's passing on the chance to direct the movie's already-in-the-works sequel.

Ross' decision comes after days of speculation about his future with the second film, Catching Fire -- and comes not long after he told news outlets he was definitely "attached to direct" the sequel and was "intending to do it."

In a statement from the filmmaker made public by Lionsgate, Ross said, "As a writer and a director, I simply don’t have the time I need to write and prep the movie I would have wanted to make because of the fixed and tight production schedule."

Ross also thanked the movie's stars, including Jennifer Lawrence, and denied his stepping down was the result of rumored-to-be nasty negotiations with Lionsgate, saying of the studio, "They have also been very understanding of me through this difficult decision."

For its part, Lionsgate reps insisted in a statement that they're "very sorry" Ross is backing out.
