'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' was named Best Movie at this year's MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night (03.06.07). Johnny Depp, who stars at Captain Jack Sparrow in the hit series, was also victorious, picking up the Best Performance Prize. The 43-year-old actor received a standing ovation when he took to the stage at the Hollywood event to accept his award. Thanking audiences, Johnny said: "I'm not very good at this kind of thing, but I just want to say thanks to all of you guys. I'm deeply touched."
Will Smith's son, Jaden, won the Breakthrough Performance award for his role in 'The Pursuit of Happyness'. The eight-year-old made his movie debut alongside his father in the moving tale based on a true story last year.
Veteran star Jack Nicholson won Best Villain for his role in Martin Scorsese 's multi-Oscar-winning movie 'The Departed', while Sacha Baron Cohen added to his awards cabinet with the Best Comedic Performance prize for 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan' .
Lindsay Lohan, who had been due to present an award at the event, failed to attend. Despite checking into Malibu's Promises rehab centre last week, the actress was rumoured to be planning a surprise appearance at the bash. However, Lindsay, 20, was spotted leaving the treatment centre - where she is scheduled to be staying for a month - to go to church.
But it was Paris Hilton who was the talk of the night. The hotel heiress attended the ceremony, despite being close to the end of the countdown to her prison sentence. Paris, 26, who has now begun her 23-day sentence, said: "I'm definitely scared but I'm ready to face my punishment. My friends and family and my fans have supported me and it's been really helpful in this really scary time." The blonde socialite checked herself into prison hours after leaving the bash.
British singer Amy Winehouse entertained audiences with a performance of her hit single 'Rehab'.
