he MTV Movie Awards spread the golden popcorn prizes around, and even included a touch of Bollywood.

"The Avengers" won three awards, including the top prize, movie of the year. "Silver Linings Playbook" also collected three awards. Several stars, including show host Rebel Wilson, won a pair of prizes.

Rebel Wilson, who opened and closed the show wearing Iron Man-style armor, won the Breakthrough Performance for her work in "Pitch Perfect" and shared in the film's award for Best Musical Moment. Its stars, including Brittany Snow and Skylar Astin, opened the show with a mash-up medley.

"I was a bit surprised they asked me to host, and so was MTV -- they thought I was Adele," Wilson joked.

"Avengers" writer-director Joss Whedon said as he accepted the top prize Sunday: "What's the opposite of humbled? We're Biebered to be standing here... This is the award that means the most to me. I am so grateful and very excited for 2015; we're going to bring you 'Avengers 2.'"

"The Avengers" also won best fight and best villain for actor Tom Hiddleston.
