It's time to break out the golden popcorn as the 2014 MTV Movie Awards are here! This Sunday's live broadcast, hosted by Conan O'Brien, looks to continue the show's 22-year-long tradition of being cinema's least predictable night. With the first show, where Terminator 2: Judgment Day swept the categories, setting the standard in 1992, the fan-voted awards have allowed for a strong barometer of where the public taste falls. The show's also been home to career-making breakthrough performances from the likes of The White Stripes in 2002 and Kid Rock in 1999.

This year's show, broadcasting from Los Angeles' Nokia Theater, is headlined by a collaborative performance between Eminem and Rihanna, as well as Ellie Goulding, Zedd and 21 pilots. Along with being the only award show to boast awards in such categories as "Best Scared-As-Shit Performance" and "#WTF Moment," there are five nominees in the Best Musical Moment category that we're more than happy to list for your consideration here.

@sarahcolonna Dear Mom and Dad: Hey, at least I haven't done this! #VMAs
From the horrendous pre-show where none of the "hosts" let the "artists" talk, to the actual award show that didn't disappoint in giving us all comments that were laugh-worthy, once again Twitter was more exciting than this year's MTV Video Music Awards show. The truth of the matter? Following Twitter is almost always more fun than any actual award show and this year during the 2013 VMA's, the tweets that the viewers churned out didn't let us down. People definitely weren't shy about bagging on the term "Mahomie" that was spewed out of singer Austin Mahone's mouth, or Miley Cyrus's excessive need to keep sticking her rank tongue out her mouth while gyrating a foam finger into her latex covered vagina. The MTV #VMA hashtag was on fire and we captured some of the best of the best just for you.

Justin Timberlake
This Sunday at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, Justin Timberlake is going to be receiving the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The most prestigious of all Moonmen, the Video Vanguard Award is given to artists or directors who've particularly pushed the limits of music videos and advanced the art form. It's an award that's not even handed out annually, making the few who receive it all the more significant. Timberlake's been a staple of MTV for the past 15 years, exactly half as long as the VMAs have been on-the-air themselves, so we at the Weekly have decided to look back at Timberlake's most memorable video moments.

'Ain't That America' With Lil Duval is Straight Up Bussin!

When it comes to bringing amazingly epic and comical quick quips on MTV's "Guy Code," Lil Duval has it down to an artform. He's so hilarious in fact that MTV2 gave him his own show that will be premiering on July 9th called, "Ain't That America." And for good reason. He's funny on TV, his stand-up is funny, he's funny on Twitter...are you noticing a trend here people? Lil Duval kicks ass in the funny department. Before the premiere of his new show we got the scoop on what he has in store for us, found out how he handled being at EDC, and we couldn't pass up the opportunity to shit talk with him about some of his recent tweets. What we learned is that without a doubt, Lil Duval is living the American dream.

Beavis and Butthead

Last weekend marked 20 wonderful years since MTV aired the first episode of Beavis and Butthead. While the duo changed the way the world viewed Generation X, as well as ushered in one of the sharpest satires of the '90s, it also popularized the idea of video "riffing" to a brand-new audience. No longer were MTV videos flooding the network solely for viewer approval; now, two oft-hilarious critics were watching along with us to let us know what "kicks ass" and what "sucks." It is in salute to the two most trusted music critics of the '90s that we count down the top five Beavis and Butthead video riffs of all time.
