Almost at odds with the raunchy spirit of the show, the big winner of the evening was the teen tearjerker The Fault in Our Stars, which got the Golden Popcorn statuette for best movie of the year as well as multiple wins for star Shailene Woodley.
Woodley, who picked up the award for best female performance in The Fault in Our Stars in addition to the Trailblazer Award and best kiss honor (with Ansel Elgort), gave an emotional speech dedicated to the book’s author, John Green.
Other winners included Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum and Jennifer Lopez, as well as Jennifer Lawrence and Meryl Streep, who were not in attendance.
