With the Hunger Games and cast taking the lead at the 2012 MTV movie awards with a total of 4 golden popcorns, MTV takes notes of 5 things we learned about the Hunger Games .
The Games Have Only Begun
If there was any question whether ”The Hunger Games” could carry “Twilight”‘s banner once the vampire romance makes its final Movie Awards appearance in 2013, the dystopian flick’s four wins set that debate to rest. With statuettes for Best Female Performance (Jennifer Lawrence), Best Male Performance (Josh Hutcherson), Best Fight (Lawrence, Hutcherson and Alexander Ludwig) and Best On-Screen Transformation (Elizabeth Banks), we expect “The Hunger Games” series to set the ceremony on fire for years to come.
Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks Are Good Sports
We knew co-stars Lawrence and Banks had well-honed senses of humor, but they continued to prove their gameness with two much-talked about moments during the show. In one of the night’s spoofs, Lawrence starred as herself — the unwitting victim of hapless archery expert Lester Boonshaft (played with aplomb by “The Soup” host Joel McHale). Let’s just say we don’t know a lot of actresses willing to wear an arrow through their head.
Then, in a lovely unscripted moment during her acceptance speech for Best On-Screen Transformation, Banks was surrounded by presenters and “Magic Mike” stars Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Joe Manganiello (clad in half a fireman’s uniform), Banks (clearly enjoying the gyrating) mused, “I just want to thank MTV for this moment right here. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, MTV. This is just the best moment of my life.”

Thanks to the Quarter Quell’s jungle-like arena, the stars of “Catching Fire” have been anticipating a tropical shoot locale for some time now, but Hutcherson revealed the cast could be heading down south, as well. “I haven’t heard anything confirmed yet, but Atlanta is definitely a big possibility,” he said. “And I know they’re looking at Hawaii too for some of the tropical stuff when we’re in the games. It’s gonna be somewhere nice!” We’re packing our sunscreen already, Josh.
Finnick Has Yet To Be Found…
Not so fast, Internet. Despite rumors that Finnick casting was down to actors Armie Hammer, Garrett Hedlund and Taylor Kitsch, producer Nina Jacobson told the L.A. Times that the studio is far from finding front-runners.
“That’s the thing that’s crazy — people are like way ahead of where we are,” she said. “We’ve not narrowed things down by any means. It’s funny to see how things can take on a life of their own.” So all you young, handsome, incredibly well-chiseled Hollywood actor types, you still have time to order a trident off eBay for auditions!
