*Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, up for best onscreen duo for their comedy “Ride Along” at the MTV Movie Award on Sunday, went home empty handed, and Cube is pissed.
“We was robbed,” the rapper told USA Today. “Shame on you MTV.”
The award ended up going to Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker for “Fast & Furious 6.” Ice Cube called it a “sympathy” vote by fans, who chose the winners.
“We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated, for us not to win was crazy,” Cube said of his role with Hart. “We were the best onscreen duo, period.”
“They should have gave it to him before he passed away,” he added of Walker, who died in November 2013.
“Ride Along,” which is coming out on Blu-Ray/DVD on Tuesday, set a January box office record when it opened on MLK weekend and went on to make $150 million in worldwide box office.
The rapper/actor/producer admits he left the MTV awards on Sunday shortly after arriving — to watch his beloved Lakers play on television at home.
“I just wasn’t into it,” Ice Cube says of the MTV awards. “I have been going in and out of these things for 25 years. If you ain’t into it, why torture yourself? As soon as you get bored, get up and leave.”
The Lakers also lost that night…to the Grizzlies.
“Shame on you, Lakers,” says Ice Cube.
