Robert Pattinson accepts the award for best male performance at the MTV Movie Awards

Twilight star Robert Pattinson has sucked up the spotlight - and the popcorn-shaped trophies - at the MTV Movie Awards ceremony.

Among the actor's moments: winning three different awards, unexpectedly kissing co-star Taylor Lautner, and slipping the F-word past censors when presenting Reese Witherspoon with the special MTV Generation Award.

"It's not always a bad thing to have sexual chemistry with your mother," joked R-Patz, who played the son of Reese's character in Vanity Fair as well as her love interest in Water For Elephants.

For his role as vampire Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Robert won best male performance, best fight with Bryce Dallas Howard and Xavier Samuel, and best kiss with Kristen Stewart.

Instead of smooching each other, Rob declared he did not "feel like kissing" Kristen before he descended back into the audience and planted his lips on Taylor.

Team Jacob also earned some love from Saturday Night Live star Jason Sudeikis, the show's host, who kicked off the ceremony at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, by starring in his own version of The Hangover in which he went in search of a lost Lautner.

The other Twilight winners were Kristen for best female performance and Eclipse for best movie.

"The fact that we're standing up here is a testament to all the hard work that went into Eclipse," Lautner said.

The non-vampire winners who picked up awards included Justin Bieber for best jaw dropping moment for Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, Emma Stone for best comedy performance for Easy A, Alexys Nycole Sanchez for best line for Grown Ups, and Tom Felton for best villain for Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1.

"This will look very nice in my downstairs toilet," Tom said of his trophy.
