I told you I'd be keeping tabs on the MTV Movie Awards, and being a woman of my word, I've been reading up on all the goings on today. I didn't actually watch the ceremony, but I've got a good idea of what went on thanks to the powers of the internets.

After the break, check out the best of the show, care of host Aziz Ansari!

The awards show began with parodies of this year's surprise hits PRECIOUS and THE BLIND SIDE. Ansari once again tapped Justin Beiber to help him get things going.  Check that out below:

In his monologue, Ansari went on to say what needed to be said, taking direct aim at Hollywood's current obsession with 3D movies. He takes issue with the presumed "realness" of 3D features by comparing them to video games. He also posits on James Cameron and how crazy people must have thought him when he first pitched AVATAR, which went on to be a record-breaking moneymaker.

At some point, there was a Human Giant reunion sketch titled Stunt Kidz! which saw the guys return to doing one of many things that they do well, yelling inappropriate things at child actors.

There was a not-so-funny R.Kelly parody song about AVATAR, with a humorous jab at BP tacked on at the end.

But redemption came in the form of Taavon, the swagga coach.

All in all, it was a solid effort from Aziz, though MTV points out, these things are never about the host. I hear Scarlett Johansson and Sandra Bullock locked lips, as well as Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. It must be about that then...
