'Hunger Games' reigns at MTV awards

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.

Ellen Page, one of the stars of the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past," introduced a clip from the film that sees the X-Men joining forces with their younger selves at Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards.

In the clip, some X-Men attempt to battle ruthless metal monsters using their special abilities. It's the first appearance for some of the mutants - Blink, Sunspot, Warpath and Bishop.

O'Brien kicked off the 22nd annual ceremony with a challenge to gain 50 celebrity cameos for his opening segment, a shtick with Will Arnett that merged two categories - best fight and best kiss - and a musical number about hating musical numbers in big awards shows.

Walking out to a track by rapper Rick Ross, O'Brien joked that he was almost injured by the show's flashing pyrotechnics.
