Best: Amy Schumer's Monologue
Opening with a Boyhood gag in which the Comedy Central star lies on the grass and muses that she's statistically likely to get HPV, Schumer immediately set the tone: This gig was going to be her brand of comedy (irreverent, feminist, and very, very funny). After running through some similar plot perversions of Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars, and, best of all, Whiplash in the opening film montage, the comedienne took a few clever shots at the network during her monologue. The winners don't have to worry about being cued off the stage, she joked, because MTV "refuses to play music," and that the best movie is decided on "by the same people who keep Catfish and Teen Mom on the air." It's always refreshing when the hosts don't sublimate their humor for the sake of getting asked back. Besides, any award show that wouldn't want Schumer to host should just hang on to those trophies.
