Nominations for MTV Movie Awards

Yesterday twitter was a flitter (is that a word?) with Twilight Fans hashtagging their hate for MTV.

As a Canadian who thinks MTV hates Canada (can't watch their videos here) I was curious what had happened. The responses I got were that MTV *ONLY* nominated Twilight for best kiss and best movie.... ok... huh?

Well, in the past Twilight has been nominated for every possible category (Best Male, Best Female, Best Cast, Best Fight, Break Through, and so on...) in the past, Twilight has also swept most of the categories it has been nominated for.

So here is a thought... who cares?

We all love Twilight, we know if nominated it would sweep, but honestly, is an MTV Movie award so prestigious that we need every category nominated and won? For serious folks?!?!

I am not offended by this, there *ARE* other movies that exsist... *shocker* and although I have enjoyed the MTV/Twilight awards in the past, I am ok with recognizing other flicks... and yes that includes making way for the new Hunger Games.

I don't know if they will go with a Harry Potter Sweep as a final good-bye or a Hunger Games sweep as a big push/welcome.... You never know.... but it is rarely spread out evenly ha ha!

Anyways - here are the nominations and who I would LIKE (italics) to win and who I THINK (bold) will win (not always the same)

Movie of the Year
» "Bridesmaids"
» "The Hunger Games"
» "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2"
» "The Help"
» "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1"

*This is hard. I loved all these movies, but it is Harry Potter's last shot - they should win!!! I also thought The Help was an amazing movie. But of course I have an undying love for BD1 and Hunger Games, but they both have more chances.... anyways - Harry Potter.
Best Male Performance
» Daniel Radcliffe, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2"

» Ryan Gosling, "Drive"
» Joseph Gordon-Levitt, "50/50"
» Josh Hutcherson, "The Hunger Games"
» Channing Tatum, "The Vow"

*Channing is my man, I always choose him. But I also LOVE Ryan Gosling #2 after Channing so this is tough. Again, HP's last shot so Daniel coudl take it. Lastly, or maybe it should have been firstly, I LOVE Josh. Man, this is tough!

Best Female Performance
» Jennifer Lawrence, "The Hunger Games"
» Kristin Wiig, "Bridesmaids"
» Emma Stone, "Crazy, Stupid Love"
» Emma Watson, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2"
» Rooney Mara, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"

*Rooney was amazing. These are all great nominees, but I have a girlcrush on Emma Stone, so I have to pick her. Again with HP over, I feel like they may take it all home, then again, maybe Hunger Games will take it all as the "new comer" - I don't know but I do feel it is rigged for publicity.
Best Comedic Performance
» Kristen Wiig, "Bridesmaids"
» Zach Galifianakis, "The Hangover Part II"
» Jonah Hill, "21 Jump Street"
» Oliver Cooper, "Project X"

*Gotta go with 21 and Chan's buddy Jonah. Though Kristen Wiig is like the most hilarious actress and I would love to see a female take this....
Breakthrough Performance
» Melissa McCarthy, "Bridesmaids"
» Rooney Mara, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"
» Liam Hemsworth, "The Hunger Games"
» Elle Fanning, "Super 8"
» Shailene Woodley, "The Descendants"

*omg this is tough too - I loved Melissa McCarthy, and Liam is dreamy, but I have to fo with Rooney - she ROCKED that role!
Best Cast
» "Bridesmaids"
» "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2"
» "The Hunger Games"
» "21 Jump Street"
» "The Help"

*Again, I want to say HP or HG but because of my loyalty to Channing I pick him - always! Then Emma stone (Help) but I guess based on MTV Hunger Games will win (or HP - again as I have said, depending on if they are going for the big bang goodbye HP or the big band welcome HG)
Best On-Screen Transformation
» Elizabeth Banks, "The Hunger Games"
» Rooney Mara, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"
» Johnny Depp, "21 Jump Street"
» Michelle Williams, "My Week With Marilyn"
» Colin Farrell, "Horrible Bosses

*Effie was amazing. Lisbeth was bad ass. I didn't recognize Johnny. Michelle BECAME Marilyn. Colin Farrell got ugly. That being said, I decided how I did.
Best Fight
» Daniel Radcliffe vs. Ralph Fiennes, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2"
» Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson vs. Alexander Ludwig, "The Hunger Games"
» Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill vs. Kid Gang, "21 Jump Street"
» Tom Hardy vs. Joel Edgerton, "Warrior"
» Tom Cruise vs. Michelle Nyqvist, "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol
Best Kiss
» Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, "Crazy, Stupid, Love"
» Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2"
» Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, "The Hunger Games"
» Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, "The Vow"
» Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1"

This one I don't choose Channing, I don't want to see them kidd on stage... I already saw McAdams do that with Ryan Gosling (My #2) when he was wearing his Darfur tee and they re-enacted the running kiss from Notebook - heavenly.... That being said, seeing Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone do it would be amazing - especially with McAdams watching, remembering what she used to have... though isn't she still with Michael Sheen? anyways.... I vote Rob & Kristen - of course - and pray they finally effin' actually just kiss - seriously? Grow up and do it! No more games! I almost don't want them to win because I don't want to ensure another stupid antic.
Best Gut-Wrenching Performance
» "Bridesmaids" (Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McClendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper)
» "The Help" (Bryce Dallas Howard)
» "21 Jump Street" (Jonah Hill and Rob Riggle)
» "Drive" (Ryan Gosling)
» "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" (Tom Cruise)
Best On-Screen Dirt Bag
» Bryce Dallas Howard, "The Help"
» Jon Hamm, "Bridesmaids"
» Jennifer Aniston, "Horrible Bosses"
» Colin Farrell, "Horrible Bosses"
» Oliver Cooper, "Project X"

Best Music
» "Party Rock Anthem," LMFAO ("21 Jump Street")
» "A Real Hero," College with Electric Youth ("Drive")
» "The Devil Is in the Details," Chemical Brothers ("Hanna")
» "Impossible," Figurine ("Like Crazy")
» "Pursuit of Happiness," Kid Cudi (Steve Aoki remix) ("Project X")

What are your predictions? I could be way off - I think where I will be wrong is where I went Hunger Games or Harry Potter and it's the opposite....
