Beyonce's Win for 'Best Fight' For 'Obsessed' Marks First MTV Movie Award

Sony Columbia Records - 06/10/2010

Beyonce's win for "Best Fight" for the 2009 #1 movie, Obsessed, at last Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, marked her very first win for MTV's nod to the big screen. The fight toward the end of the film was the most talked about in years and an obvious fan favorite. Winners are determined by online voting.

The fight scene pitted Beyonce's character, Sharon, against Ali Larter's character, Lisa, in a brawl to the finish, including an audience-cheering head butt. The fight was up against Hugh Jackman and Live Schreiver's in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Logan Lerman and Jake Abel's in Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Strong's in Sherlock Holmes and Sam Worthington and Stephen Land's in Avatar.

The 2010 MTV Movie Awards nomination for "Best Fight" for Obsessed was the fourth for Beyonce. She received nominations in 2003 for "Break Through Performance" in Austin Powers In Goldmember, in 2006 for "Sexiest Performance" in The Pink Panther and "Best Performance" in 2007 for Dreamgirls.

Beyonce also served as executive producer of Obsessed and relished in doing the physically demanding role. "I was really bruised after that fight. I had to wear long sleeves for about three weeks after that but I loved the energy. It reminded me of choreography. I felt so empowered and I got to do it all in heels."

Currently on a recording and promotional break, after her "I Am..." world tour, Beyonce recently released the video for "Why Don't You Love Me," as a gift to her fans. The short film is a comical, often emotional piece that pays homage to classic 50's imagery.

Co-written by Beyonce, Solange Knowles and Angela Beyince and produced by Bama Boyz, "Why Don't You Love Me," is taken from the Bonus EP of the re-release of the multi-platinum, "I AM...SASHA FIERCE," and is available on iTunes. Fans can purchase a physical copy exclusively at Wal-Mart as part of a special edition package of "I AM...SASHA FIERCE. The video was directed by MELINA and Beyonce and produced by Beyonce for Parkwood Pictures, her own production company.
