Johnny Depp and the MTV Movie Awards

Johnny Depp took best comedic
performance honors for his turn
as Captain Jack in Pirates of the
and won best villain
Sweeney Todd at the
MTV Movie Awards.

I almost forgot about the awards being on tonight and I would have been very upset with myself for missing a chance to see Johnny Depp. What a treat he is . . .

Although I adore the scruffy Johnny Depp, when he timidly walked out to claim his first prize, I thought, WOW he even looks awesome with a hair cut and a shave. He shyly looked toward the crowd through his long bangs as he accepted his two awards and chewed gum. ahhh I never saw a guy look sexy chewing gum until tonight.

Every time I see him as himself, I get the impression that he is an extremely shy and sweet tempered person. He has the perfect face and the cutest nose I've ever seen. Look at those arms, he definitely spends time at the gym.

One of the things that I really love about JD is that success does not seem to have made him arrogant and obnoxious, quite the contrary. He has a humble look about him like he does not know what he looks like. Actually I get the feeling that he has taken on roles that deaccentuate his attractiveness so that he will be taken seriously as an actor . . . Edward Scissorhands and Sweeney Todd for starters. When I saw the Chocolate Factory movie I forgot it was my gorgeous Johnny playing Willie. A fabulous actor can do that . . . but for some reason, I'm not ready to see Sweeney Todd.

Congratulations Johnny . . .


The only thing hotter than the predawn blaze that closed down the area surrounding the Gibson Amphitheatre before the 2008 MTV Movie Awards was double-threat Johnny Depp.

The masses-approved heartthrob had to wait out a thundering standing ovation before being able to give thanks for his Best Comedic Performance win, his third Golden Popcorn to date for playing Captain Jack Sparrow. And with Juno scribe Diablo Cody having already clutched her hand to her heart the first time, the reception was only a bit milder when Depp took the stage again, when he was named Best Villain for his turn as the murderous Sweeney Todd.

"I'm not really sure how this happened because you can ask anybody—I'm not a very funny person," a clean-shaven Depp said in accepting his first award of the night.

And later: "Two times in one night—that's nutty. Wow…I have to thank all of you who voted for me. That's really a great honor, thanks for sticking with me on this very obtuse and strange road…I'm not particularly eloquent at the moment, but thank you so much."
