They fought. They kissed. They memorized thousands of lines, endured hours of hair and makeup, and pretended to be scared of green screens. And now those efforts have paid off--the year's brightest stars and most awesome films have been chosen!

The big question going into the Movie Awards: Would 'The Hunger Games' finally dethrone the 'Twilight' series as the fans' favourite? Answer: not quite! Yes, it was a big night for 'The Hunger Games,' with the box office smash earning prizes for its stars Jennifer Lawrence (Best Female Performance), Josh Hutcherson (Best Male Performance), and Elizabeth Banks (Best Onscreen Transformation). (Insert 'the odds were ever in their favour' joke here.) But 'Breaking Dawn 1' bagged the ultimate golden popcorn for Movie of the Year, and Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson continued their now-four-year-long Best Kiss winning streak. 'Harry Potter' fans weren't forgotten either, with the film earning a Best Cast prize as well as Best Hero for its, er, hero.
