Wins MTV Movie Award

Other Awards

Wahlberg wins MTV Movie Award Best On-Screen Duo for Ted shared with MacFarlane.

I know what this really means — many people have gotten this award before … Jim Carrey, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston and many others. And do you know what they all have in common? None of them were invited back; they’re all too f—ing old! This is the ‘you’re too f—ing old to come back’ award … this is ‘you’re f—king done.’ …But you know what? It was a great run, and I’m a lucky guy in so many ways to have worked with so many talented people, to have gone from literally being incarcerated to having a one-hit rap career to having an underwear modeling career to getting a real chance from Penny Marshall. I’m about to cry in a minute — hold on!
