Twilight, Inception, and Harry Potter Dominate the MTV Movie Award Nominations
Posted 05.04.11 by reelz
The MTV Movie Award nomination were announced yesterday, and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse garnered the most nods. Eclipse received eight nominations within twelve categories, including being nominated twice for the categories of Best Male Performance (for Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, of course) and Best Kiss (for Kristen Stewart's smooches with the aforementioned Best Male Performance nominees).
Inception received a total of seven nominations, with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 following right behind with six. Inception was the only one of the top three nominated movies to get noticed for the unconventional categories of Best Jaw-Dropping Moment, Biggest Badass Star, and Best Scared-As-Sh-- Performance. Deathly Hallows was the only one of the three to be singled out for Best Villain, but surprisingly, not for Ralph Fiennes' Lord Voldemort, but instead for Draco Malfoy played by Tom Felton.
Eclipse, Deathly Hallows, and Inception are all nominated for Best Movie, as well as Black Swan and The Social Network. Black Swan was nominated four times, including for the kiss between Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis. The Social Network was nominated for four awards besides Best Picture, and two of those were for Best Line from A Movie, which is unsurprising with Aaron Sorkin's funny and wordy screenplay.
And don't worry. They didn't forget the Biebs. Justin Bieber's Never Say Never was nominated for Best Jaw-Dropping Moment.
The MTV Movie Awards airs June 5 and will be hosted by Jason Sudeikis. Voting started yesterday and runs until June 4.
