MTV Movie Award Nominations: The Hangover, Avatar, New Moon Lead
05.13.10 by REELZ
It's that time of year again — voting for the MTV Movie Awards has begun. Leading the brood is The Hangover with nominations in six categories, followed closely by The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Avatar, each up for five awards. All three are up for Best Movie.
Additionally, The Hanover is up for Best Comedic Performance (with Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis both nominated), Best Breakout Star (Galifianakis), Best Villain (Ken Jeong), Best WTF Moment (Jeong's "Naked Trunk Surprise"). James Cameron's epic 3-D Avatar is also up for Best Villain (Stephen Lang), as well as Best Fight (Lang vs. Sam Worthington), Best Female Performance (Zoe Saldana), and Best Kiss (Saldana and Worthington).
The Twilight Saga is also up for Best Female Performance for Kristen Stewart, and Best Male Performance for Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. It's also featured in the Best Kiss category, with Pattinson and Stewart's New Moon liplock set to battle it out against Dakota Fanning and Stewart's kiss in The Runaways and Taylor Swift and Lautner's smooch in rom-com Valentine's Day. Are you seeing a pattern here?
Pattinson and Lautner's joint Best Actor nomination is sure to cause some controversey among fans of the saga, though our money's on RPattz. No one has a tween following like he does, so his competition would be wise to watch out. Even super-toned Lautner can't win this one. Can he?
The 2010 MTV Movie Awards will be hosted by Aziz Ansari, and air live on June 6th at 9pm ET on MTV. Final voting is now open, and runs through to June 5th.
