What does Superman have to do to to get recognized these days? Maybe winning a Popcorn Trophy at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards could be a start.

However, the Best Hero category segment which Cavill won never made it to broadcast television for the 4.8 million average viewers that tuned in.  That segment never aired and was only announced at the very end of the live show.

But to make matters worst, MTV announced that Henry Cavill won the award for his role in... "White House Down"?

MTV mistakenly had switched the movie titles during their live show and on their Movie Awards website between "Man of Steel" and "White House Down" whom actor Channing Tatum was also a nominee of the award.

Zach Snyder was even mistakenly credited as the Director for "White House Down".

The movie titles were later corrected in an MTV press release.

Opposite Cavill, actress Mila Kunis won MTV's Best Villain Award for her role in "Oz the Great and Powerful", that segment was actually aired on broadcast televesion.

The four times this "Best Hero" Award has been awarded, it has always gone to a WARNER BROS character! You think Warner is sending out company wide memos to all their employees to vote for their property's characters????

2006 - Christian Bale - Batman - WB
( inexplicably not awarded for years)
2012 - Daniel Radcliffe - Harry Potter
2013 - Martin Freeman - Bilbo
3014 - Henry Cavill - Superman

People shouldn't put too much stock on an awards show that hands Popcorn as their trophy.

Good thing Henry's not Samuel L Jackson, otherwise he'd tear MTV a new one.

...and this is why I can never take anything that MTV does seriously.
Abary - 4/15/2014, 12:22 PM
I blame Justin Bieber, because, you know, why the hell not, this is MTV.

HINT: That was about 30 years ago.

What's sad is Conan O'Brien is hilarious & was very funny on the MTV Awards but they barely used him.
MTV is garbage.
