Superheroes and special effects wizards battled for the spotlight at the 2003 MTV Movie Awards on Saturday, claiming several top trophies including the best movie prize for “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers,” which earned four awards, more than any other film. Along with Best Movie, MTV viewers gave it Best Action Sequence, On-screen Team for stars Elijah Wood, Sean Astin and digitally-created Gollum, as well as a new honor for Best Digital Performance for Gollum.
Elijah, Sean and Billy (Boyd) were there to pick up the gongs, while Peter Jackson and Andy Serkis/Gollum gave pre-taped acceptance speeches. Best Fight went to Force master Yoda for his lightsaber battle with none other than Christopher Lee in Attack of the Clones.
