Rain Takes The MTV Movie Awards Golden Popcorn For Biggest Badass Star

Posted 6/7/10 1:15 am ET by Adam Rosenberg in MTV Movie Awards

Before I sign off for the night, I want to give a shout to one of the big surprises: Rain, who won Biggest Badass Star for his unbelievably physical performance in "Ninja Assassin." The movie isn't great film or anything, but it's a seriously good time and that's largely due to the great helpings of beatdown Rain passes around throughout. His acceptance speech falls a little flat, but give the guy a break-- he's a HUGE superstar in Asia, but English isn't his first language. I think he came off as totally affable and appreciative for the honor he received.

Are the MTV Movie Awards self-defeating?

Rain part:

The one moment that felt uncontrived and in the spirit of MTV's leading-not-following roots was when Rain won the Biggest Bad [Guy] award for "Ninja Assassin" over MTV perennials like Sam Worthington and Angelina Jolie. It passed quickly and unremarkably.
