MTV Movie Awards: The Food Moments
As we head into a summer filled with big-budget, action-packed blockbusters, let’s take the time to reflect on last year's films — at the MTV Movie Awards.
That’s right, this Sunday, June 3, the golden popcorn will be awarded to such outstanding fan favorites as Breaking Dawn, Bridesmaids, and The Hunger Games. But, while everyone is super excited about the Best Kiss award and Best Fight, we’re preoccupied with food — as usual.
We’ve recapped the food moments in the Movie of the Year nominees and we have to say, we could make a nice three-course meal out of these foods. Well, except for the poisonous berries and Minny’s Pie — we’ll pass on those.
If you’re hosting a viewing party, try whipping up a menu to match the movies.
Before you decide who your Movie of the Year winner would be, check out these food moments!
