The highly anticipated 2012 MTV Movie Awards just finished airing and, as it sure had to be, The Hunger Games was a big winner: the cast took home four awards! Jennifer Lawrence as Best Female Performance, Josh Hutcherson as Best Male Performance, Elizabeth Banks as Best On-Screen Transformation and, of course, Jennifer Lawrence & Josh Hutcherson vs. Alexander Ludwig for the Best Fight.
Josh, Elizabeth and Alexander were there to walk down the red carpet and, later, receive the awards.
The Hunger Games European premiere took place today in the UK, and Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks and Toby Jones were all in attendance. In case you didn’t watch the livestream, MTV’s got you covered with some pics from the red carpet. You can check out more images at MTV.
Elizabeth Banks talked with E! Online at the Hunger Games premiere about Effie and the emotions of the film.
“I really am inspired by her sartorial choices,” Elizabeth explained to Ashlan Gorse and Catt Sadler at tonight’s Hunger Games premiere. “My wardrobe used to be all black all the time, but now I add colors.”

Following The Hunger Games world premiere in Los Angeles on March 12th, the movie will hold red carpet premieres the same week throughout Europe: London on March 14th, Paris on March 15th, and Berlin on March 16th.

PopSugar’s latest video from their interviews with the Hunger Games cast members reveals how Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Wes Bentley and Elizabeth Banks say they would fare in a real-life arena.
Have you ever wondered if you could pull off the Effie Trinkett look? Well think again..the worst part of Effie’s ensemble?
“The worst part about it was my nails,” Elizabeth said. “I had these crazy, long, insane fake nails—bejeweled and…just insane. And once they were on, I literally couldn’t do anything. I couldn’t—[mimes poking a finger at an imaginary phone]—iPhone, Blackberry. I couldn’t use the computer.”
Sure that doesn’t sound too bad right? You may just need a bit of practice to get the hang out it..not until you hear this..
“I couldn’t go to the bathroom. I literally couldn’t zip or unzip, or do a button. I couldn’t wipe. I couldn’t do anything.”
Why does she tell us all this?
“I just want everyone to know how far we had to go to make ‘The Hunger Games.’”
