Pitch Perfect actress Rebel Wilson has taken the MTV Movie Awards by storm with her performance as host and by scooping two trophies.

The 27-year-old Australian opened and closed the show in typically outlandish fashion, wearing Iron Man-style armour.

She also won breakthrough performance for her work in Pitch Perfect and shared in the film’s award for best musical moment.

Her co-host Bradley Cooper was another two-time winner for his performance in Silver Linings Playbook.

The biggest success of the night was superheroes movie Avengers Assemble (or The Avengers as it is known in the States), which took three awards.

Accepting the top honour of Movie of the Year, director Joss Whedon said: “What’s the opposite of humbled? We’re Biebered to be standing here.

“This is the award that means the most to me. I am so grateful and very excited for 2015. We’re going to bring you ‘Avengers 2’.”

Whedon’s film also won best fight and best villain for actor Tom Hiddleston.

Jamie Foxx was another double winner, sharing a best moment award with Samuel L. Jackson for their scenes together in Django Unchained and receiving the Generation Award for his career in film.

The MTV Movie Awards are voted for by fans online across a wide range of quirky and traditional categories, from best film and actor to best kiss and shirtless moment.

The event is also a chance to preview some of the year’s big films. Fans were treated to glimpses of new footage from next month’s Iron Man 3 and the trailer of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, introduced by one of its stars, Liam Hemsworth.

Stars from other films, including Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto from the Star Trek sequel and Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez from the Fast & Furious franchise, acted as presenters during the ceremony.

Other presenters included Brad Pitt, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Snoop Dogg/Lion and Kim Kardashian.
