Universal City, Calif. — Sandra Bullock was kissing and telling at the MTV Movie Awards.
Bullock, wearing a glittery black dress, received a standing ovation as she accepted the MTV Generation Award in her first live televised appearance since she split with unfaithful husband Jesse James earlier this year. The 45-year-old actress used her acceptance speech to clear up tabloid rumors — “No. 1: I’m not dead.” — and smooch Scarlett Johansson.
“No matter what you might have seen or heard or read lately, I love what I do,” vowed Bullock, “and I’m not going anywhere.”
Bullock was presented with the show’s highest honor by her “All About Steve” co-star Bradley Cooper, “The Proposal” co-star Betty White and inexplicably Johansson, the wife of her absentee “Proposal” leading man Ryan Reynolds. When asked why she was there to help hand over the trophy, Johansson hinted she wanted to lay one on Bullock, who awkwardly obliged.
“Now that we have done that,” said a smiling Bullock, “can we please go back to normal?”
When it came to the awards at Sunday’s freewheeling and often-bleeped ceremony at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, Calif., “The Twilight Saga” eclipsed the competition for the second year. “New Moon” sucked up trophies for best movie, kiss, female performance for Kristen Stewart and male performance and global superstar for Robert Pattinson.
“I guess ’Twilight’ is really awesome, and I agree,” said Stewart. “Woo!”
Other winners selected by online votes included “Obsessed” co-stars Beyonce Knowles and Ali Larter for best fight, “Jennifer’s Body” star Amanda Seyfried for “scared-as-st moment,” “Ninja Assassin” star Rain for “biggest badass star,” “The Hangover” star Zach Galifianakis for comedic performance and “Up in the Air” co-star Anna Kendrick for breakout star.
