'Mockingjay Part 1' Wins 2 MTV Movie Awards

Mockingjay Part 1 took home 2 MTV Movie Awards last night, but the best part of the show was Elizabeth Banks' appearance as a no f@*ks giving Effie Trinket in the opening skit. She's on at the 3:36 mark

 

The two Mockingjay Part 1 awards were actually announced before the show aired. Jennifer Lawrence won Best Musical Moment for The Hanging Tree and Elizabeth Banks won Best On-Screen Transformation for her performance as Effie Trinket. 

Thank you #Mockingjay fans for voting for me @MTV #MovieAwards I LOVE U #Effie

Willow Shields attended the awards and looked stunning in a Mockingjay book cover-esque light blue Bibhu Mohapatra dress. 

Liam Hemsworth was also at the awards, but only photographed backstage. Maybe he tagged along with brother Chris, who was there to support The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Robert Downey Jr. (winner of the Generation Award).

Lionsgate is Developing 'The Odyssey' Adaptation With The Hunger Games Team 

Peter Craig, Nina Jacobson and Francis Lawrence

Lionsgate is developing a movie version of Homer’s The Odyssey with Catching Fire and Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2 director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson. Peter Craig, who co-wrote the two Mockingjay films, is writing the script.

According to Deadline, Lionsgate has put this on a fast track. The plan is to begin production early next year, right after the filmmakers complete promotion of Mockingjay – Part 2, which will be released November 20. The project took root when Lionsgate Motion Picture Group co-president Erik Feig pitched it to Lawrence in Paris while they worked on the Hunger Games finale.

“The Odyssey” is believed to have been composed by Homer in the 8th century B.C. It centers on Odysseus and his long journey home after the fall of Troy.

Carrie Ann likes it!

Willow Shields and Mark Ballas did a moving Hunger Games themed contemporary performance to "Atlas" by Coldplay from the Catching Fire soundtrack on Dancing With the Stars last night. Complete with tributes on platforms, fighting in an arena, canons, and fallen tributes broadcast in the sky, the production value of the number was stunning, and Willow and Mark recieved 39 out of 40 from the judges, the highest score of the evening. Take a look: 

Here's one for those of you outside the US:

The number represented Willow's "Most Memorable Year" which was the theme of this week's show. Willow picked 2011, the year she was cast in The Hunger Games as a wee 10-year-old.
