Shailene Wins Best Breakthrough Peformance at MTV Movie Awards

MTV – It was Shailene Woodley’s first time at the MTV Movie Awards, and also her first win.

“The Descendants” star took home the Best Breakthrough Performance Golden Popcorn and commanded the stage during her acceptance speech. But it turns out she was actually much more nervous than she let on.

“I started sweating a whole lot. Like, a waterfall of sweat,” she reminisced when MTV News caught up with her immediately after her win. “I don’t even remember what happened, except for Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield’s smiling, awesome faces. Thank God they were up there. I would have been so nervous.”

Sure, Woodley was nominated for a number of prestigious awards thanks to her fantastic performance in “The Descendants,” including a Golden Globe nom. But being invited to — and winning at — the MTV Movie Awards is still a big accomplishment in her life.

“It’s the MTV Awards!” she gushed. “Let’s be real. This is crazy.”

It turns out that this was an especially great experience for Woodley because she is a huge Russell Brand fan. She called his opening monologue “awesome” and then dove into her passion for his particular brand of comedy.

“He’s one of my favorite comedians. I think he’s just so effing funny, and I’m all about him and everything that he’s saying. He’s like a political, or like an anti-political activist, you know? And I really love his revolutionary thinking. I’m into it,” she said. “[He has] a really profound message, and without being preachy.”
