The fan votes - not just the odds - were in "The Hunger Games" favor at the MTV Movie Awards.

The dystopian survival saga escaped from Sunday's 21st annual extravaganza with the most golden popcorn-shaped trophies. "Hunger Games" won the best fight, on-screen transformation and male and female performances for stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson.

Hutcherson is from Union, Ky.

The film didn't totally decimate the competition. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" won the prizes for best cast and best hero. "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" won for movie of the year and best kiss.

The fan-favorite ceremony was hosted by actor-comedian Russell Brand.

Other winners Sunday included Shailene Woodley for breakthrough performance for "The Descendants" and Jennifer Aniston as best on-screen dirtbag for "Horrible Bosses."
