The MTV Movie Awards in and of itself is pretty damn useless. The categories mean nothing, the awards mean nothing and the nominee list is often a total joke. However, one can’t deny that it also a pretty entertaining show to watch since they usually come up with some VERY funny stuff (The acceptance speech given by Gollum for Best Animated Character was the greatest acceptance speech of all time).
So chalk up another great PR move for the folks over at MTV. Apparently they are getting the original cast of The Breakfast Club back together for this year’s show. Here’s what the good folks over at The USA Today has to say:
At the 2005 MTV Movie Awards, to air June 9, the network plans to reunite the cast of the classic ’80s movie, the cable channel said Friday. Though Emilio Estevez, who played Andrew Clark, isn’t confirmed, in attendance will be Molly Ringwald (Claire Standish), Ally Sheedy (Allison Reynolds), Anthony Michael Hall (Brian Johnson) and Judd Nelson (John Bender).
I LOVED The Breakfast Club. It’s a film that pretty much unintentionally presented a definition of the diversity of my generation. Hmmmm… perhaps they should do a “Breakfast Club 2: 20 Years Later”. Oh forget it.
