LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bradley Cooper and Samuel L. Jackson were double winners at the MTV Movie Awards
Cooper won the first Golden Popcorn prize of the night for his performance in "Silver Linings Playbook" and returned to the stage to accept best kiss honors for his smooch with Jennifer Lawrence in that film. Lawrence, who won the Oscar for her performance in "Playbook," wasn't on hand for Sunday's ceremony.
Jackson claimed two awards. He and Jamie Foxx won best WTF moment for their scenes in "Django Unchained," and Jackson joined members of "The Avengers" cast to accept the best fight prize. "Avengers" director Joss Whedon also took the stage, calling the prize "very unexpected."

Tom Hiddleston of "The Avengers" won best villain.
The MTV Movie Awards are as much about the anticipated movies of the upcoming summer season as they are about the winning films of last year.
Rebel Wilson is hosting the ceremony at Sony Pictures Studios. "Django Unchained" and "Ted" are the top nominees in the irreverent competition, where fans vote online for the winners in categories such as best fight, best kiss and best shirtless performance.
"Twilight" heartthrob Taylor Lautner won the shirtless award.
Wilson was also a winner Sunday, capturing the breakthrough performance award for her work in "Pitch Perfect." Stars from that film opened the ceremony with a musical medley.
