MTV Movie Awards set to be battle between bridesmaids and killer kids
“Bridesmaids” and “The Hunger Games” topped the nominees at MTV’s annual film honors with eight nods a piece, including bids for best cast, breakthrough performance and movie of the year. Rounding out the best-picture contenders are “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” “The Help” and “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 1.”
MTV announced nominees Monday in 12 categories, including six new ones including “best on-screen dirtbag” and “best gut-wrenching performance.” Also new this year: Nominees were selected by a panel of actors, producers, agents and industry tastemakers instead of via an online vote from the public.
Fans can still choose the winners, though. Voting began online yesterday.
The 21st annual MTV Movie Awards will be presented June 3 at the Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal City, California and broadcast live on MTV.
