UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – Sandra Bullock was kissing and telling at the MTV Movie Awards.

Bullock, wearing a glittery black dress, received a standing ovation as she accepted the MTV Generation Award in her first live televised appearance since she split with unfaithful husband Jesse James earlier this year. The 45-year-old actress used her acceptance speech to clear up tabloid rumors – “No. 1: I’m not dead.” – and smooch Scarlett Johansson.

“Now that we have done that, can we please go back to normal?” said a smiling Bullock.

Kristen Stewart won the first golden popcorn trophy handed out at the fan-favorite MTV award show, hosted by “Parks and Recreation” funnyman Aziz Ansari. Stewart was honored for best female performance for her role as Bella Swan in “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” at Sunday’s over-the-top and often-bleeped ceremony at the Gibson Amphitheatre.

“I guess ‘Twilight’ is really awesome, and I agree,” said a fidgety Stewart. “Woo!”

Stewart and her “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson also landed the best kiss award for the second consecutive year. Other winners included “Obsessed” co-stars Beyonce Knowles and Ali Larter for best fight, “Jennifer’s Body” star Amanda Seyfried for the first-ever “scared-as-s–t moment” and “Up in the Air” co-star Anna Kendrick for breakout star.

“This is the coolest moment ever,” said Kendrick, clutching her popcorn trophy. “This is going on my coffee table.”

Actor Cheadle named spokesman for U.N.  program

KIGALI, Rwanda – Actor Don Cheadle has become a spokesman for the United Nations environment program.

He was appointed Saturday in Rwanda’s capital as a U.N. Environment Program Goodwill Ambassador and vowed to fight climate change and promote environment conservation.

Cheadle also named a baby gorilla Zoya, a name chosen by Internet users as part of a UNEP awareness program.

In 2004, Cheadle starred in the film “Hotel Rwanda,” which told the world about the Rwandan genocide in 1994 that claimed the lives of more than 500,000 people, mostly Tutsis and moderate Hutus. The Rwandan government, however, was critical of the film.

‘Shrek’ remains on top but box office slumps

LOS ANGELES – Hollywood is in a June swoon as a rush of new movies fails to grab audiences.

DreamWorks Animation’s “Shrek Forever After” remained the No. 1 movie for a third straight weekend with $25.3 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. It raised its three-week domestic total to $183 million.

“It appears that the family audience is dominating the box office right now, and families clearly want to see ‘Shrek,’ ” said Anne Globe, head of marketing for DreamWorks Animation.

The overall box office tumbled, coming in at $125 million, down 24 percent compared to the same weekend last year, when “The Hangover” opened with $45 million, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com.

The best of the newcomers was Universal’s rock ‘n’ roll comedy “Get Him to the Greek,” which debuted at No. 2 with $17.4 million. The movie stars Jonah Hill as a record executive escorting an unruly rocker (Russell Brand) from London to Los Angeles for a concert.

Opening at No. 3 with $16.1 million was Lionsgate’s action comedy “Killers,” starring Katherine Heigl as a woman who marries her dream man (Ashton Kutcher) only to learn he’s an international assassin.

Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal, said the studio is happy with the results for “Get Him to the Greek” but that slumping revenues for Hollywood in general are a concern.

“Everybody is talking to me about that, and I don’t have an answer,” Rocco said.
