Zoe Saldana won the golden popcorn for "Best Latino Actor" by Tr3s in honor of the MTV Movie Awards last night for her kick-ass role in the hit film, Colombiana. Co-written by French film director, Luc Besson, and directed by, Olivier Megaton, Zoe played a woman seeking revenge after she tragically witnesses her parents get murdered.

Zoe had some serious competition during the event, hosted by Russell Brand, with other nominees including, Diego Luna for “Casa de Mi Padre,” Demian Bilchir for “A Better Life,” Penelope Cruz for “Pirates of the Caribbean,” and Harmony Santana for “Gun Hill Road.”

The Latina actress wasn't the only one to dominate the award show. Blockbuster hits, Twilight, Hunger Games, and Harry Potter also won big in major categories. The epic flick, Hunger Games snagged the most awards (surprise, surprise!) for "Best Male" (Josh Hutcherson) and "Female Performance" (Jennifer Lawrence) "Best Fight" and "Best On-Screen Transformation."

Harry Potter also proved to be a strong contender and won for "Best Cast" and "Best Hero," while the vampire drama Breaking Dawn won for "Movie of the Year" and "Best Kiss." And the winning performance of the night? "We Are Young" featuring Janelle Monae and Fun were amazing on stage! Check out other great moments from the awards.
