I didn’t watch the MTV Movie Awards last night because I have HBO and I’m not 13, but rest assured, I still got lots of shouty emails about it. One of the most “exciting!” “outrageous!” and “unexpected!” moments of the evening, I’m told, was when Johnny Depp received the “Generations Award” from Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, and then took the stage to play guitar with the Black Keys. As for his sick outfit, Mystery would approve. Accessories are very sexual.
Look, I’m not saying Johnny Depp isn’t a great actor (thought I DO think he and Tim Burton need to be separated immediately, like two kids who won’t stop playing grabass on the bus) or that he isn’t still cooler than 99 percent of the people in Hollywood, I’m just saying that when you’ve got on more scarves, beads, chains, and dangly accessories than both the guys from Aerosmith combined, that maybe it’s time for a fashion intervention. The guy wears more layers of clothing than a medieval clergyman.
Video, and full list of winners after the jump. SPOILER ALERT: Jennifer Aniston got “best onscreen dirtbag.” Now if you’ll excuse me, my saracastiquote button is about to overheat, so I need to write about something else for a while.
