For those of you who aren’t part of Bachelor nation, the fellow above isn’t the result of scientists trying to make Michael Bublé look even more like a generic white guy. It’s Colton Underwood, the virgin bachelor from The Bachelor. And during MTV Movie & TV Awards, which aired last night, Colton won a golden popcorn trophy for Most Meme-able Moment. But I demand a recount, because he was up against Lindsay Lohan, who obviously should have won by a landslide.
Colton was nominated for that time when he jumped over a fence like a drunk frog to get away from the Bachelor cameras.
The other nominees for Most meme-able Moment were Ray J’s Hat from Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, The Notorious RBG, Asia O’Hara’s dead butterfly moment from RuPaul’s Drag Race, and Lindsay Lohan’s dance moves.
The nominees really should have just been Lindsay, the announcer who screamed, “Honey, this is how you throw a party in Mykonos, bitch!“, and the jumpsuit that provided Lindsay with enough freedom to move like a disco silverfish. And it would be a three-way tie, with two of the winners wondering where the trophy went, as a pawn shop owner tells Lindsay he can give her $20 for it.
But aside from that obvious oversight by MTV, the rest of the winners were pretty predictable. Avengers: Endgame won three awards, Game of Thrones won Best Show, Netflix’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before took home two, and Dan Levy won for Schitt’s Creek (an award I assume he celebrated backstage with a bottle of Herb Ertlinger Fruit Wines).

Lady Gaga also won two awards for A Star is Born: Best Performance in a Movie, and Best Musical Moment for “Shallow.” But she wasn’t there to accept the awards, because she’s too busy performing in Las Vegas. I’m not sure why Lady Gaga’s publicist didn’t think to send Bradley Cooper to accept on her behalf. Then again, she probably didn’t want to deal with another week of tabloids writing headlines like, “Did Bradley use the awards as door stops in their shared bedroom? Sources say: maybe!”
