A still from The Fault in Our Stars

Shailene Woodley won Best Female Performance - as well as the special MTV Trailblazer Award for her performance as a teenager with cancer who falls in love with a young cancer sufferer (Ansel Elgort) at a support group

Teen tear-jerker The Fault in Our Stars and American Sniper actor Bradley Cooper were the big winners at the MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Bradley Cooper took Best Male Performance for American Sniper - Clint Eastwood's Iraq war drama which was nominated for six Oscars and was a massive hit at the North American box office.

Shailene Woodley won Best Female Performance - as well as the special MTV Trailblazer Award - for her role in The Fault in Our Stars as a teenager with cancer who falls in love with a fellow young cancer sufferer (Ansel Elgort) at a support group.

The duo's powerful on-screen chemistry was recognized as they took home the award for Best Kiss while the film was named Movie Of The Year.

Veteran Meryl Streep won the Best Villain prize for Into the Woods, while other offbeat awards included Best Fight, which went to Will Poulter and Dylan O'Brien for The Maze Runner.

Zac Efron was honored for Best Shirtless Performance in Neighbors at the awards which fall outside the traditional Hollywood awards season.

Efron and Dave Franco were named Best Duo for the comedy, which received decidedly mixed reviews from film critics.

Robert Downey Jr was recognized for his achievements down the decades with the Generation Award.

The actor received the prize from Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner, his co-stars in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is about to be released.

"In the 34 years that have passed since the birth of MTV, I've grown up, I've struggled, I've failed. I've partied way too much," joked Robert Downey Jr, 50, clutching the award, which resembled a box of popcorn.

Sporting a pair of sunglasses, he then turned serious, adding, "I begged for second chances and literally clawed my way to the top."

As is usual for any award night, many were more interested in what Hollywood stars were showcasing on the red carpet.

Scarlett Johansson glammed up the red carpet in a pink jumpsuit, while Jennifer Lopez was striking in an all-black tuxedo-miniskirt combo and high heels that left little to the imagination.

Model and actress Cara Delevingne also stood out in a purple minidress complete with lace and dramatic draping.
