Antonio Gates: My night at Movie Awards

The 2012 MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles brought out many of Hollywood's big stars and it was great to be a part of it for ESPN.COM's Playbook.

The biggest winner of the night was "The Hunger Games," which won four Golden Popcorns, including nods for "Best Female" (Jennifer Lawrence) and "Best Male" (Josh Hutcherson) performances. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2" ("Best Cast") and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1" ("Best Movie") also scored impressive victories.

"Twilight's" Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson continued their lip-lock on the "Best Kiss" trophy for the fourth straight year.

It was a great event, especially since I'm a big movie fan.
