From Washington Post- MTV Viewers Name 'Two Towers' Best Movie By Bob Tourtellotte Reuters Sunday, June 1, 2003; 2:38 AM LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Superheroes and special effects wizards battled for the spotlight at the 2003 MTV Movie Awards on Saturday, claiming several top trophies including the best movie prize for "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers." Digital effects-filled "Two Towers," the middle chapter in the J.R.R. Tolkien trilogy about an epic battle for control of Middle Earth, earned four awards, more than any other film. Along with best movie, MTV viewers gave it best action sequence, on-screen team for stars Elijah Wood, Sean Astin and digitally-created Gollum, as well as a new honor for virtual performance for Gollum. Winners were picked from a poll of viewers who watch cable TV network MTV and sister channel MTV2. Among superhero movies winning awards was "Spider-Man," about the web-spinning crime fighter, which earned Kirsten Dunst the title best actress and her and co-star Tobey Maguire the honor of best on-screen kiss. The award for breakthrough actress went to Jennifer Garner for her comic book hero role of Elektra in "Daredevil." Rapper Eminem was named best actor in a film, as well as breakthrough performance by an actor in "8 Mile," the tale of his early days trying to make it in Detroit's hip hop clubs. The MTV Movie Awards take place each year during the summer movie season and offer a good look at what the youth culture likes in films, which was personified by young Daveigh Chase who took home the award for best villain in "The Ring." "Oh my gosh, this so rocks," Chase said on stage after grabbing her MTV statue -- a bucket of golden popcorn. The show also gives fans a lively counterpart to staid, old Hollywood awards like the Oscars with MTV categories including best fight. That title went to Force master Yoda for his lightsaber battle with Christopher Lee in "Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones." Mike Myers won the golden popcorn bucket for best comedic role as spy Austin Powers in "Austin Powers in Goldmember." MTV added an award for best transatlantic breakthrough performer, and that went to Colin Farrell in "Phone Booth." The awards show will air on June 5. Last year's MTV Movie Awards was watched by over 7 million viewers and was MTV's most-viewed movie award show ever among audiences aged 12 to 34.
