Twi-Hards Not Happy with 2012 MTV Movie Awards Nominations

Hell hath no fury like a Twi-hard scorned.
For the past four years, a certain sparkling-vampire movie franchise has dominated the MTV Movie Awards. The Twilight franchise has won 15 Golden Popcorn awards since 2009, including back-to-back-to-back Movie of the Year wins — causing some to dub MTV's show the Twilight Awards. But it now seems the franchise's reign is over, and Twi-hards are not happy about it.
Instead of dominating the nominations yesterday, surprisingly Breaking Dawn: Part 1 was nearly shut out. The movie only received two nominations, Movie of the Year and Best Kiss. On the MTV awards nomination page, fans are livid about the Twilight snub. One fan writes
he / she has "never been so upset in my life."
Below are a sampling of other Twi-hard reactions taken from the comments on the MTV site.
Twilight fans are pissed that Hunger Games was included in this year's nominations: MTV you guys ***** suck for doing this to the twilight fans. I have never been so upset in my life I undertsnad that their are other movies but you guys don't have to kick us twilight fans in the mouth this is just so unfair. Looks like I wont be watching the movie awards this year on tv online online for the cheat sheet although I will ote and hope that best kiss and best movie will go to breaking dawn
you know what MTV **** YOU!!! it is not fair to the twilight fans that BD has only 2 nominations just because you want the damn hunger games to win and to all you HP [Harry Potter] & THG fans if you don't want twilight to win so bad VOTE HARDER!!!! but anyways rob & kristen better win best kiss & BD better win best movie because i'm not about to sit through this ******** having to watch THG win and again MTV **** YOU!!! :)
F**K YOU MTV, YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MANY MILLIONS OF FANS YOU'VE PISSED OFF!!!! WE HATE YOU!!!!
So who received the most nominations? The Hunger Games scored eight nominations, tying Bridesmaids for most noms. The Hunger Games is up for Movie of the Year, Best Male Performance (Josh Hutcherson), Best Female Performance (Jennifer Lawrence), Breakthrough Performance (Liam Hemsworth), Best Cast, Best On-Screen Transformation (Elizabeth Banks), Best Fight (Hutcherson vs. Alexander Ludwig), and Best Kiss (Lawrence and Hutcherson).
Not everyone was upset about the Hunger Games' 8 nominations.
Finally the nominations are about what is good and not about Twilight. Unlike the Twilight series, Harry Potter and The Hunger Games are good movies that deserve the nominations. Harry Potter should have gotten this a long time ago!
So what do you think about Hunger Games overshadowing Twilight at this year's MTV Movie Awards? Should Hunger Games be eligible given the fact that it was just released a month ago? Or have the MTV Movie Awards become so irrelevant that it doesn't matter? Do you think MTV is dumping Twilight (the franchise concludes this November) and getting on the Hunger Games bandwagon (which has three more sequels)? The MTV Movie Awards will air June 3.
