Zac Efron Wins Best Male Performance!

Zac Efron Wins Best Male Performance!

Zac Efron gives a shy smirk as he arrives at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on Sunday evening (May 31) in Universal City, Calif.

The 21-year-old actor won the Best Male Performance popcorn award for his role as Troy Bolton in HSM3. Zac received his award from the Popcorn guy — after presenter Bruno (Sasha Baron Cohen) landed in Eminem‘s lap!

Zac will return to the MTV stage later this evening to present Ben Stiller with the Generation Award.

    On second thought – I think he’s had a haircut. It doesn’t look as long as it was at the Lakers game the other day.

  • iluvrobpattz

    @marina: like u dont have one!

  • Ann

    Congrats ZAC, I am happy for you.

    But, I am so mad about the way they announced that he won. That was really stupid and denegrated his award.

  • kenzie1234


    yes they where seated 2gether and everytime the camera woud trun to them zac had his arm around vanessa or did put his arm around her

  • pop86

    Congrats to Zac.

  • mhay


  • maichi


  • coolgal

    thnx very much kenzie1234!
    hope next year mtv movie awards will be much better!

  • Karen

    Even if Zac was the only one to win—and what a crock of how they did that presentation—it seemed that NOBODY was shown more on camera from in the audience than Zac and Vanessa. It seemed every time they showed them he was putting his arm around her. That was sweet. It was also sweet that Vanessa was telling him he had won the award. I have never seen such a pitiful show though. If it hadn’t been for Zac and Vanessa I would have turned it off.

    The best part for me was seeing the two of them in the audience and Zac doing the presentation for Ben Stiller award, Zac’s obvious surprise at winning, and the best was Vanessa’s presenting the award with Jonah Hill.

  • LAI

    CONGRATS ZAC!!!!!!!!!

  • lora

    Yuk, he looks disgusting. He and Vanessa must have shopped at the same store because they both looked awful.

    Also he did not deserve to win anything. Every other guy nominated is far more talented then he will ever be.

  • Cat


    It’s not that easy to do hsm. You have to learn all the moves. Have you ever though of that!?! I heard some 2 minute scene took them a couple of hours to shoot.

  • cara

    Honey filming action movies are much harder to do. Truth is Zac was the least talented out of the bunch. And Christian and Shia have more of a future cause they are more diverse.

    These awards shows are about whats hot at the moment NOT talent.

  • loveydovey

    @sol: rob and kristen won best kiss

  • pop86


    This was a typical MTV award show. Whether its movies or music, their award shows are a total mess.

  • zac is a rat

    Yet again no photo’s with Vanessa things are definetly not looking good for these pair, how things have changed since the TCA photo’s.

  • Lissy

    I am so happy that you win, you deserve that award, Efron and you look so freaking hot.

  • Marie

    Zac looks hot and sexy. I am so happy that he win.

  • Naomi

    Congrats Zac.
