Eminem Wins At MTV Movie Awards

Eminem snagged two MTV Movie Awards on Saturday

at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, for his performance in "8 Mile."

Eminem took honors for best male performance

and best breakthrough male performance for his role as "Rabbit" in

the semi-autobiographical film.

Because he was absent, Eminem pre-taped two messages

for the crowd.

"I heard Puffy would be there and I chickened

out," he told the audience of his absence.

When won for best breakthrough male performance,

he took a shot at Mariah Carey saying "I can’t believe I beat Mariah (Carey)

for ‘Glitter.’"

Other winners were Kirsten Dunst for her kissing

work in "Spider Man," the animated character Yoda for best fight scene

in "`Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones,” and Austin Powers

for his comedic performance in "Austin Powers In Goldmember."

The 12th annual MTV Movie Awards will air Thursday

on MTV.
