Josh Hutcherson and Sam Claflin stop to talk with Josh Horowitz after Catching Fire’s wins at the MTV Movie Awards.
The MTV Movie Awards were held last night and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire walked away with 3 of the coveted golden popcorn awards. The film was named Movie of the Year, and Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson won for Best Female and Male Performance. Sadly despite the efforts of tributes from all over the world, Katniss lost out on Favorite Character to Divergent’s Tris. (Check out the full list of nominations for Catching Fire and American Hustle here).
Sam Claflin and Josh Hutcherson were in attendance last night to help accept the awards, and we’ve got some fantastic photos and video for you to check out.
Sam and Josh accept the award for Movie of the Year dedicated to Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Josh accepts the award for Best Male Performance:
It makes me so happy that Sam loved the Spice Girls because I was a Spice Girls fangirl back in the day too. Sam also talks his new movie The Quiet Ones, horror films, what questions he’s sick and tired of answering, fashion, and more with GQ!
The Quiet Ones features great use of T.Rex and Slade – what music do you love that would surprise people?
I mean I’m not so much into them anymore, partly because they’re not together anymore but I was a big fan of the Spice Girls back in the day. I definitely collected every one of those postcards you could buy and I was obsessed with Posh Spice. I literally collected them all and they’re still around in my mum’s house. No shame! I mean I was 13 and I think the whole world was into the Spice Girls. I’m not sure if I really liked they’re music so much but the girls themselves are pretty special.
Are you still a fan of Victoria?
Yes. I mean what her and David have managed to do since retiring in their respective fields is pretty amazing. They also seem like special parents so that’s definitely inspiring.
Have you met either of them?
No. In fact, it’s the only time I’ve ever been silenced in somebody’s presence. I went to this Hollywood party and there was the likes of Robert Downey Jr, Sean Penn, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. I thought, “OK, I can deal with this.” And then the Beckhams walked in and I was like “Argh!” My agent who was hosting the party said “I’ll introduce you mate, they’re friends of mine.” I just said “No, no, no you can’t, I can’t talk to them. Growing up and playing a lot of football, everytime I kicked the ball I’d say his name, like ‘Davvvviiiiiddd Beckkkkhammm.’” So I thought maybe I should just leave this as it is. David Beckham is still a God to me.
There’s always the danger that your idol wouldn’t live up to expectation
Exactly! That’s the thing, I always assumed that for me Hollywood was so far out of reach that I’d never even get considered to be in a film. I left drama school thinking I was going to play tree number three on the left, at best the RSC [Royal Shakespeare Company]. I’ve been very blessed and lucky. I think all of a sudden you do very quickly realize that these God-like people are actually just very normal human beings.
You look great in your last GQ shoot: what is your key style rule?
I’m not one to dress up smart and I think that’s one of the good things about having the opportunity to wear some of these hugely expensive, nice suits that are tailored to you. If I lived like that everyday, it wouldn’t be special. I like to just mooch around and live a very normal life. I think if I walked in a suit everyday then people are immediately… basically you’re asking for attention and that’s something I definitely try to avoid.
What should no man have in his wardrobe?
Definitely a pink shirt. Sometimes I think it can work, depending on who’s styling me but I don’t think I’d ever go to a shop and buy a pink shirt personally.
Where do you stand on red trousers?
Oh no. I think it’s the bright thing. As you can see, I’m much more of a black, navy or a grey type of guy. I dress quite “goth-like”, so bright colours don’t really ring true for me. But you know, some people need to express themselves in different ways which is totally understandable.

Come on Tribute! We can do this! The MTV Movie Awards will air this Sunday, April 13th at 9pm. As we previously posted, Sam Claflin and Josh Hutcherson will be in attendance!
Whoa! Jennifer looks amazing as Mystique on the cover of EW. Is it May 23rd yet!?
This issue of Entertainment Weekly goes on stands April 11th!
It’s been too long since we’ve talked about Seneca Crane’s beard, you know? I’ve kind of missed it! Lucky for me, Wes Bentley recently did an interview with Den of Geek to talk about his new movies Pioneer and Interstellar.
And guess what topic came up!
Slightly more frivolously; your beard in Pioneer is great, but – this is gonna be the most amazing segue you’ve ever heard, just wait for it – your beard in The Hunger Games is obviously the most amazing beard ever. What was it like having that on your face? How did it feel the first time you looked into the mirror with that?
It was weird. It was strange because I shot nine days on that film but they were spread out over a month, and so I would have that beard until it grew into a normal shape, but I’d have that shape and that definition – they put tattoo ink in it, to give it definition – and I had to go out to Walmart or Target or out to eat with my wife and kids with that beard and I felt like kind of a tool because I’m not the type to manscape like that! [laughs]
It was weird for people at Target; it wasn’t weird for people at Walmart. They didn’t find it strange at all, I fit right in. So I hung out at Walmart all day.
It is pretty ostentatious; I can imagine you got a couple of double takes.
Yeah! Gas stations were my favourite, they were a bit nervous, I guess. It was North Carolina, so this wasn’t a normal thing for them to see.
So does anyone else miss talking about Seneca’s beard, or is it just us?!
This movie looks so good!
Suzanne Collins and illustrator James Proimos are the winners of the 2014 Christopher Award for their children’s book Year of the Jungle: Memories from the Home Front.
“The Christopher Awards are presented to writers, producers, directors, and illustrators whose work affirms the highest values of the human spirit,” explains the Newton Bee. The award ceremony will be held May 15 in New York.
Year of the Jungle: Memories from the Home Front is certainly no stranger to awards. If you haven’t had a chance, you should definitely read this cute yet powerful story.
Though March Madness has concluded, with a UConn victory, we know of one HUGE Kentucky fan that was standing by his team up until the last buzzer rang on Monday. Josh Hutcherson spoke with Kentucky Sports Radio last week about his love for the Wildcats, his time on the court with the team, and his trash talking with Jen and HER Dad who are Louisville fans.
Then there is this fabulous quick video Josh posted on twitter of him celebrating Kentucky’s last second win over Wisconsin that put them in the championship game.
Yes, we are a bit behind in posting these, but when it comes to listening/watching to Josh, nothing is ever too late, right?
In a recent interview with Yahoo UK, Shailene Woodley and Theo James were asked who would win in a battle between their characters of Tris and Four in Divergent and Katniss and Peeta from The Hunger Games. As one would expect they both stand behind their own characters and proclaim they would win “hands down” in that showdown.
But not so fast Shailene, Tris and Four may have that military training, but Katniss can shoot animals in the eye with her bow & arrow skills, has surivived two bouts in the Hunger Games AND went through her own Military training in Mockingjay. We don’t think we’re biased in saying she has the upper edge. Now Peeta, well he has certainly held his own in the arena, and even though we’d admit he’s more of a lover not a fighter, he definitely has the skills and ability to handle himself in a battle with the Dauntless Duo. ;)
It’s all in fun of course…but hey we’ll stick behind our favorite Victors
