Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) was last night given the Best Villain award at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. The ceremony took place in Los Angeles, California; a video of the actor accepting the Golden Popcorn can be seen by US residents at this link. Additionally, photos from the event are now available right here in our galleries.

In related news, Felton yesterday confirmed that his girlfriend will appear in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” Jade Olivia will be in the role of Draco’s wife Astoria in the epilogue scene. “The producers actually came to me about six months ago and asked me,” comments the actor, “and I was like, OK, I’ll ask her. She was slightly reluctant but I pulled her arm and twisted it and then she was filming with me for three days at King’s Cross.”

Please note that the video is only available to residents of the USA, but the accompanying article – which has a few more quotes from Tom Felton – is available to everyone. A video of Tom Felton talking to MTV News on the red carpet about the casting can be seen at this link.

She is the lucky girl. But I didn't understand why she was reluctant. I would have said yes right away! What an opportunity!Avatar ImageGF_of_Seamus says: Yeah I don't think she is an actress, I could be wrong. I think she is just a model. I sound like i'm saying "just a model" like it's a bad thing, it's not!Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: Jade is a stuntwoman on Harry Potter. She's worked on the movies for years.Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: Or stunt assistant, I guess.Avatar Imagejedisakora says: Ya! I was so happy to hear that. ^^Avatar Imagebellaohbella says: oh coolAvatar Imagedevilskinn says: I'm so happy for him! One can see he is really excited about receiving the awards... I was just a little bit annoyed at the fact that they did not let him speak his mind, they kept interrupting him. Avatar Imagechikitcorpuzvesterbaek says: he handled the heckling like the civilized, well-balanced guy he is. well done, tom!Avatar Imagenwrosey says: congrats but in my opinion Bellatrix is much more villianish!!Avatar ImageeiVega says: I thought it was rude how much they were interrupting him during his moment, but he handled it very well. He stood up for himself very politely and continued giving thanks. Way to go, Tom!Avatar Imagehprocks12 says: @nwrosey: It wasn't Bellatrix for HBC it was the Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland.Avatar Imagehermionenluna says: very well deserved!Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: cool :] <3 tomAvatar ImageMr. Brightside says: Go Tom!Avatar Imagejessi09 says: Him getting the best villain award was great.Avatar Imageslytherinprincess1 says: i agree that it wasn't fair when they talked when he got the award but after the awards Tom was the first to say sorry i don't know why he did but that shows he is very polite! and I love that sensitive side of him it's really great to see he is not as evil as Draco! p.s I wish the had put the kiss cam on him! lolAvatar ImageDiamondWings says: Awww!!! So sweet!!!Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: Tom Felton has the right to deserve this award. There ain't any Draco better than him! But I can't wait to see his grilfriend in the Deathly Hallows!Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Congrats Tom! Very well deserved.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: That is so cute!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: Congratulations to Mr. Felton for receiving this recognition.Avatar ImageChreechree says: It's hard not to like Tom Felton. Many congratulations on this award playing a character I love to hate!Avatar ImageRinny says: anyone read the rest of the article, though? i find it interesting they claim "here was a pretty awesome clip included of the showdown between Ron and Harry towards the end of "Part 1" which ends in Ron splitting off from Harry and Hermione." and "But Ron takes it to the next level, saying the crushing words, "Your parents are dead, you have no family." Oh no he didn't. Could this be our cliff hanger ending between "Part 1" and "Part 2"?" do they have confirmation somewhere that part 1 ends at the ron leaving split? because i'm still much more convinced it will be a snatcher/malfoy manor split- which, by the way is much more cliff hanger-y than ron leaving, i think... splitting when ron leaves would live way too much for the 2nd film, i think... but maybe i'm wrong. it'll be interesting to see what the final decision is.Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: haha tom wears the pantsAvatar ImageRin68nyr says: Woo Hoo!!!! Go Tom!Avatar ImageSproutMdme says: Congratulations Tom....well deserved indeed!Avatar ImageJackMeggers says: can i just say how amazingly gorgeous his girlfriend is?!Avatar Imagecghambright says: I'm so happy Tom won!! His acceptance speech was great. It's so sweet that Jade will be playing his wife!! That's awesome! I can't wait to see Deathly Hallows! Avatar Imageccking says: ahh congrats! couldn;t deserve it more!Avatar ImageHPIsLegit says: Congrats Tom on the win !Avatar ImageSlytherin Princess101 says: Congrats Tom, well deserved!!!Avatar Imagebella vita says: I was so mad watching what happened when he was trying to accept his award! Mark Wahlberg's behavior was absolutely disgusting and so disrespectful to Tom. I'm still really irritated about it. It was literally just like what happened with Taylor Swift getting interrupted by Kanye except that when that happened there were all of these articles and people who stood up for Taylor and felt sorry for her, but no one seems to be doing that for Tom. The level of disrespect and the fact that no one including the MTV staff did anything to stop it so Tom could finish his speech just left me stunned thinking WTF? It was HP's only award for the night and the moment was ruined by that ridiculousness going on in the background. Tom was so brilliant in HBP and he truly deserved his moment to shine so it infuriates me to see someone ruin it the way they did. I know one thing... I will NEVER see another film that Mark Wahlberg is involved with!Avatar Imagehp931 says: Yay Tommy! Well deserved! And you get to film with you *girlfreind* ! I am dissaponted that kristen stweart woman beat Emma in that arawrds for best actress. GRRRR her. Again (appluddes Tom) well deserved to a lovely actor and his girl!Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: Congrats to Tom!Avatar ImagePotter_Puella says: Congrats Tom! You deserve it! Although Helena Bonham Carter was a very worthy competitor. Avatar ImageParkinsonpansy says: He deserved the award and i think his girlfriend is prefect for role!Avatar ImageParkinsonpansy says: He deserved the award and i think his girlfriend is prefect for role!Avatar ImageParkinsonpansy says: no tom felton's girlfriend isnt a model (though she could be) she is the assisant sunt cordinator for the hp films thats how they met so she could have gotten the part without tom felton's helpAvatar Imagejacket says: LUCKY! I want to be in DH! although I can't act very well...Congrats Tom! You do make a wonderful villain!Avatar ImageAbbyWeasley says: nice job!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageBriannaWazHere says: Congrats Tom Felton, when I was watching it I was so happy someone from Harry Potter won because of all the Twilight people getting awards. I didn't like though how the people presenting it treated him though, they were very rude in my opinion while Tom was trying to thank his mom, they were like "Come on it's not an Oscar" and "Soak it up it'll never happen again." I know they were just trying to be funny, but It came off rude to me. Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: @bella vita It was NOTHING like that. Calm the hell down. It was scripted, and planned that way. THE PRODUCERS TOLD THEM TO TALK AND HAVE FUN! It was part of the joke of the scene with no disrespect intended. Tom didn't know about it and that's what made it funny. Both Tom and Mark had no hard feelings afterwords so you shouldn't either. Way to completely overreact.Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Congrats to Tom! I voted like crazy for him to win.... thank goodness he won something for HP since Twilight swept the floor with everything else. I also think it's so cool and sweet that his girlfriend will be playing his wife in the Epilogue... super cool! :) CONGRATS TOM AGAIN!!! Avatar ImageHerminee says: Good for Tom. And how cute that his girlfriend gets to play the role of his wife.Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: Cool! :-)Avatar ImageLuna White queen Lovegood says: Congratulations Tom Felton) Hooray! Tom you're the best!Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: so cool for them.Avatar ImageTheRealSlytherinHeir says: Congratulations Tom! He really deserved it! Avatar ImageLeper says: Well done. He was great in HBP.Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: Congratulations Tom. You're AWESOMEAvatar ImageMirabellaDent06 says: i love you tom! you should have asked me i would have gladly done it!!!!!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Very well done!Avatar ImageLiara says: Well deserved! Congrat, Tom!!!Avatar ImageCatherine says: awe that is so sweet! i would be jumping at the chance to film, but i think that is such a wonderful idea!Avatar ImageCatherine says: oh and Congrats Tom! totally well deserved, i was so sick with all the twilights winning!Avatar Imagepurplewitch_30 says: Congrats!!!Avatar ImagePollytomat says: That's so cool! It's even better when you understand that it's actually fans who made this possible. We voted like never did before and he got the award! That's amazing! Congratulations! As for the Jade's role... well, why not? She is beautiful and... Let's make it clear, Astoria is not a very important character... She has no lines and just has to stand near Draco at the King's Cross... Not that difficult)))) Avatar ImageSwedishPotterfan says: He really deserved it! :)Avatar Imageiris lily says: well done tom!Avatar Imagehewy says: Congratulations to a wonderful young actor! Way to go Tom!!!!!!Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Congrats, Tom. You are fab. That's cool about Jade Olivia getting to play his future wife in the film.

The whole time I knew that he was going to win!!!! He is such a great actor! Avatar ImageFresca says: Tom played a complex person in Draco Malfoy, and it is nice to see the "villain" change, and not be completely evil all the time! Tom deservers the award. Well done!Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: That's so cool! Tom's girlfriend will appear as Draco's wife! And congratulations on the award Tom! =]
