Star Trek's new Kirk Chris Pine was nominated for two MTV movie awards. However Pine lost both. He lost Biggest Baddass Star to Korean pop star Rain (Ninja Assassin), and he lost out for Best Breakout Star to Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air).
Star Trek's new Uhura Zoe Saldana was up for two awards for Avatar, but she couldn't stand up to the Twilight machine. She lost Best Female Performance to Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga: New Moon), plus she and Sam Worthington lost Best Kiss to Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga: New Moon).
In the end Twilight: New Moon was the big winner of the night with a total of five awards, including Best Movie. A complete list of winners is available at mtv.com.

Unlikely last year (while the Star Trek film was still in theaters), there were no Trek-related gags during the show. Apparently the Star Trek stars new the jig was up, as (again unlike last year) none of the new crew showed up for the event.
So instead, here is a picture of Tom Cruise (as 'producer' Les Grossman) dancing with Jennifer Lopez.
