Pirates Shines At Mtv Awards
Piratesnot only captured the box office over the weekend but the MTV Movie Awards, too. Actually, it was the second installment, Dead Man's Chest, that received the trophies for best movie and best performance (Johnny Depp). Accepting the Golden Popcorn trophy, producer Jerry Bruckheimer turned to Depp and told the audience, "Without him, we wouldn't be here." Depp, who reportedly perturbed Disney executives when they first became aware of his outlandish interpretation of his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, responded, "I'd like to thank this man and Disney for not firing me first."
