Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

The Oscars may have come and gone—some even slipping right out of a recipient’s grasp—but that doesn’t mean awards season is over. We mean, it mostly is, but there are certainly other accolades to be distributed, other cinematic achievements to be lauded. Take the All Def Movie Awards, a Russell Simmons creation, which were held on February 22. That ceremony also handed out many prestigious prizes, including Most Out of Place White Person, which was awarded to all of the nominees, astoundingly enough. Tiffany Haddish picked up only the second ever Bad Ass Boss Chick award for her role in Keanu, while her costar Luis Guzman won for Best Latino Not in a Service Industry Role.

But the biggest prize of the night was still Best Picture, which went to Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. Filmmakers The Lonely Island responded to their victory on Twitter, where they were also receiving an imaginary Oscar from Vice.


We’re not sure if it was Samberg’s performance or the Lonely Island’s lyrics that sold Simmons and the All Def Awards body, but we do think this news will delight The A.V. Club’s Nathan Rabin.
