CULVER CITY, CA - JUNE 04:  Presenter Justin T...

This is entertainement at its best!

It seems customary by now, that MTV has to show something corageous “outrageous” in every mediocre award show it broadcasts. With the Movie Awards of this year, they didn’t disappoint. Eager for the quick buck, the ratings and the controversy, we have already seen Madonna/Britney Spears/Christina Aguilera kissing in front of Justin “Cry Me a RiverTimberlake. Now it’s time to be justified: If Mila Kunis could escape the fate of being typecast as Meg Griffin/Jackie Burkhart by kissing Natalie Portman, it was because they were in an Academy Award artsy film. But being groped by Justin… hey, they were making TV History!

After awhile, every attempt at relevance and hipness become more and more desperate and lame. The harder they try, the more difficult it gets for the next year awards show.  I call it the “Phil Dunphy syndrome”, reminiscent of one the most funny but pitiful characters of “Modern Family.”  He styles himself as the cool dad, but none of his children are buying it, becoming downright annoying, specially when he breaks the fourth wall and looks directly into the camera for a nanosecond, destroying the suspension of disbelief.

Viacom should have hurried up hiring Anthony Weiner last week, as he was rapidly becoming the prototype of the politician-celebrity in the Internet 2.0 era: not-so-smart as he believes he is, but smart enough to drag a lot of people into watching the misery he sells as hipness.
