Steph:  So, don’t you think it’s kind of weird that MTV has a movie award?

Derek:  I dunno. I kinda like it because they do awards for all the things that the Academy[/def] doesn’t do.

Steph:  Oh. Really? Like what?

Derek:  Like Best Kiss.

Steph:  Oh. Huh. That’s interesting. So, it’s kinda more fun.

Derek:  Yeah. It’s, ya know, what everybody goes to the movies to see, ya know. I dunno, I think Best Haircut or Best Couple in a Movie. Ya know, that type of thing.

Steph:  That’s interesting. So, it’s more like pop culture oriented. Not so stiff.

Derek:  Right. Not so academic.

Steph:  Right. I think it’s really cool that they give out the prize, and that would be a golden popcorn bucket.

Derek:  Yeah. I think that one’s really cool. It’s kinda nice to have a little bit of, um, variations on the awards.

Steph:  Totally. It’s much more playful. Ya know, I think I’d rather actually watch the MTV movie awards after talking to you.

Derek:  Yeah. I watched ’em last year and they were, uh, pretty fun to watch. A lot more entertaining, I’ll say.

Steph:  That’s cool. I’ll have to tune in later on in spring.

Derek:  Sounds good.

So, Derek really convinced me that MTV’s Movie Awards are cooler than the more traditional ones.
He’s totally right that the categories represent what people really go to the movies for.
They go to see the best moments in a romance or the most interesting fight scene.
This year, I’m totally going to watch this one. Plus, I want to check out the golden popcorn bucket!
