As far as awards shows go, the MTV Movie Awards are about as unpredictable as they come. From their array of unexpected hosts to nominating a variety of movies, you can never quite guess which stars and movies will walk away with the coveted golden popcorn trophy. The 2013 Rebel Wilson-emceed (the funny lady is a nominee herself for her performance in the hit comedy Pitch Perfect) MTV Movie Awards should be no exception, from nominees like Django Unchained to Jennifer Lawrence to The Dark Knight Rises to Channing Tatum to Ted.

Finally, Channing Tatum's torso gets its due: After getting snubbed all award season long, the genius (and abs) of Magic Mike managed to garner three separate nominations for the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. While the list of nominees includes plenty of expected names (America's BFF Jennifer Lawrence, America's annoying theater kid Anne Hathaway, America's hot dad Ben Affleck), it also includes several fan-favorite selections that weren't quite Oscar-worthy (Perks of Being a Wallflower, Pitch Perfect).
Leading the honors with seven nominations each are Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and Seth MacFarlane’s Ted, followed by Silver Linings Playbook with six nominations and The Dark Knight Rises with five. Rounding out the most-nominated films are The Avengers, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Pitch Perfect, and Skyfall with four each. Check out the full list of nominations below:

The British actor shot train-top fight scenes with Ola Rapace in Istanbul and Adana - and his director couldn't believe how mild-mannered his star was as he struggled with the elements and the demands of shooting the latest 007 adventure.
Mendes tells The Hollywood Reporter, "You are literally only getting one setup every four or five hours and having to work around the local train timetable, and it was 110 degrees.
"That's where Daniel's real heroism came in: He was on top of the train in a suit, attached by a wire... (He needed) something like 30 different versions of the same grey suit."
Skyfall is the perfect film to accompany the 50th Anniversary of the first big screen Bond movie Dr. No. The movie is a crossroads for 007; the spy is an old soul with unconventional archaic methods struggling to exist in a high-tech world with enemies who swap laser beams and nukes for Internet viruses and data infiltration. This conflict is the core of Skyfall — perfect for director Sam Mendes (American Beauty Revolutionary Road) — and the human drama gives every moment of the espionage thriller additional weight. Sure there are the grandiose set pieces we've come to expect from the series. But like the older films Mendes keeps most of the action contained the focus always on star Daniel Craig as he evades and confronts danger. He even pushes further allowing the evildoers into MI-6's home and through the magic of performance the audience into the mind of Bond.
After a botched mission sends him off the grid James Bond returns to his homebase in London to discover the MI-6 in disarray. The target of system attacks seemingly designed to screw with M (Judi Dench) MI-6 calls upon a noticeably shaken (not stirred) Bond to get back on his feet and track down the nefarious face behind the online terrorism. While politico Gareth Mallory (Ralph Fiennes) would prefer to use the magic of computers and drones to dig up the bad guy M knows even Bond at 50% is unlike any machine in the world. A few training sessions and a weapon upgrade from Q (Ben Whishaw) later Bond hits the road.
In pure Bond fashion Skyfall traverses some beautiful landscapes. From China's glowing waterside gambling epicenter Macau to the remains of a South Pacific isle to the foggy country side of Scotland. Departing from action movie aesthetics and embracing shadows atmosphere and imperfection Bond's journey feels even more tangible than the "realistic" approach of Casino Royale. The haunting locations reflect his deeply personal mission. It helps too that Bond is faced by one of his best villains yet: Javier Bardem as the charming psychopathic Raul Silva. Silva acts as another mirror for Bond albeit a version completely off the rails. Like a mix of Hannibal Lecter and Heath Ledger's Joker in The Dark Knight Silva is determined to burn his opponents in any fashion possible. Bardem plays it all with a sinister smirk — a twist on the maniacally-laughing Bond villains of yesteryear.
Skyfall's concentration is on the dramatic but continuously delivers in the action department. Mendes finds innovative new ways to stage classic Bond moments; a one-shot fist fight in the windows of skyscraper bubbles over with intensity while another in the Chinese casino tips its hat to the campier side of the franchise. And the movie goes big with an opening sequence on par with any of Bond's past outings and a foot chase through London's Tube that tests Craig's limits as a physical performer. He never misses a beat.
Impressively Skyfall is a movie pulled from this moment in history while encompassing everything that made James Bond a long-lasting character. It's one of the best Bond entries of all time a heart-pounding action flick from start to finish (with a rousing conclusion evoking everything from Terence Young to Sam Peckinpah) and one of the best movies of the year.
Istanbul, Turkey, 14:00.
The square in front of Istanbul's Yeni Camii mosque is bustling with locals and tourists. As people trek across walkways and bridges, more pedestrians leak out of the nearby Spice Market — an equally dense and colorful strip of shops. Above the energized foot traffic, the spires of the mosque tower over the scene. Behind them, glistening blue waters of the Bosphorus river make the scene even more vivid. This is the location for the opening sequence of Skyfall, the 23rd installment of the James Bond franchise, a rich, tangible setting for what might be the franchise's most intricate stunt to date. Receiving the invite to join the cast and crew of the movie on set for a day, I hop aboard a jet ready to do my own spy work. What were Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes up to in Turkey?
Espionage, gadgets, beautiful women — all important staples of the James Bond franchise. But at the core of the successful spy series, what gives the 22 existing films their scope and exotic flair are the worldwide locations. From the first film to today, there's no place 007 won't go to get the job done, and in turn, there's no place the cast and crew won't go to better bring the cinematic spy to life. In 1963, director Terence Young brought a youthful Sean Connery to Istanbul to shoot a sequence for From Russia with Love. In 2012, the globetrotting tradition continues, bringing Bond back to Istanbul for another go at Turkey's sprawling metropolis.
"[Istanbul] is the most magnificent place," Mendes told press the day of my visit. "It is an incredible city. Obviously the goal is, in a relatively short sequence, try to capture the essence of the country, both old and new. Both its traditions and its modernity." Istanbul is a city overflowing with culture, from its religious roots to culinary expertise to historical integrity to its friendly population — but it hasn't always been accurately portrayed in Hollywood. Mendes' hope is to reverse any fictional ideas of Turkey, by capturing "the spirit of the country without resorting to easy cliches."
Designing the opening sequence of the movie — which Mendes thinks may clock in at four minutes after four weeks of shooting — to capitalize on the diverse locations of Turkey is certainly a step in the right direction. The scene is a multi-layered chase [prepare for minor spoilers] with Bond and his new partner Eve (Naomie Harris), hunting down the elusive Patrice (Ola Rapace). Bond pursues Patrice's Audi A5 in his own clunky Land Rover, cornering him in the chaos of the market. Then he moves to the top of the roofs of Istanbul's famous Grand Bazaar (while on motorcycles) before wrapping things up in a high-speed train foot chase. Behind them at all times are the Turkish police, ready to incarcerate both reckless drivers. If you thought nothing could rival the Madagascar construction chase in Casino Royale, Skyfall is ready to give it a shot.
While the Skyfall set isn't completely immersed into the real Spice Market and the shopping public, the market setting is entirely recreated around the Yeni Camii mosque. The square is even embellished by the art department with towering fountains (although the masses of pigeons are just a lucky, John Woo-esque treat). Entering the shooting space, it's clear the Skyfall team went to great lengths bringing authenticity to the market set — the only thing missing is a guy selling leeches by the pound for a few Turkish lira (yes, that's a thing) — even if the fantastic, detailed work would soon be toppled over by a flipped Audi and James Bond's skillful sharpshooting.
Myself and a handful of journalists made our way through the faux-market to the video monitors to witness Mendes and Craig working their magic. Pulling the strings behind the camera is the legendary Roger Deakins, best known for his work with the Coen brothers and his two previous films with Mendes, Jarhead and Revolutionary Road. To capture this sliver of the sequence — Bond ducking for cover behind an orange cart while keeping up with Patrice and simultaneously hiding out from the incoming biker police — Deakins employs four giant digital cameras (the Alexa, for you techies), all shooting the action from different perspectives. The crew moves like clockwork, while Mendes orchestrates the scene with the actors, stunt doubles and stand-ins. There's too many people working to count, but a movie at this scale requires hundreds of heads all working in specific roles with time always of the essence. Joining us behind the madness was a special guest, Craig's wife Rachel Weisz, who stopped by to chat with producer Michael G. Wilson and watch her husband kick butt.
As a life-long Bond fan, there's a distinct difference in watching 007 on the big screen and watching him in real life. The former has plenty of adrenaline-pumping, but standing on set with Daniel Craig as he jumps into the role head on, firing his handgun straight at you — well, that's something else entirely. Craig is a serious performer, giving it his all even in the shortest shot. That's impressive, especially considering we were witnessing Day 103 of the Skyfall shoot (with another 30 left to go). With the blazing sun of Turkey creeping through the sparse clouds, the rejuvenated James Bond was as on as ever.
My time on the set of Skyfall was short and sweet, but the promises made up for it. Mendes is aiming to craft an old-school thriller with his Bond entry, kicking things off with a bang to open up potential for a character-driven story in its wake. After Bond knocks down a few oranges, he'll take off for an epic bike chase that will actually be shot on the roofs of Istanbul. The sequence will then be spliced into footage that's already in the can, the train portion of the opening that had the crew shooting in the Turkish city of Andana to film.
There's a ton we still don't know about Skyfall and Craig, Mendes, Harris, and the rest of the gang made sure to keep mum about the specifics. How does Javier Bardem or Ralph Fiennes fit into the big picture? What is Skyfall anyway? The mysteries remain, but in the world of Bond, that's exactly what you want.

Bond 23 Is Officially 'Skyfall,' Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes Confirmed
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star married actor Ola Rapace in 2001 and they went on to have a son, Lev, two years later (03).
They split last year (10), but are now set to play lovers in new film Knockout - and the actress is looking forward to repairing her friendship with her ex.
She tells Britain's Stella magazine, "I'm not worried, you know. It's quite good to have a shared goal, something we can fight for together. It kind of reunites us, so we are on the same side again."
The 31 year old's parents split when she was younger and, as a result, she lost contact with her dad Rogelio.
The estrangement continued into adulthood, and it was only when Rapace's husband, Ola - who she has since split from - pushed her into meeting Rogelio that she contacted him.
But she was shocked to learn her father was battling cancer, and he lost his fight for life just weeks after they met up.
Rapace tells Britain's Stella magazine, "I met my father a couple of times before he died, three years ago. He lived in Sweden the whole time. I wanted to see him but he didn't want to see me for a while and then when he wanted to see me I didn't want to see him.
"I actually called him and wanted just to have dinner with him because my husband said to me, 'Isn't it time now that you saw him again?' So I said, 'Do you want to come for dinner?' He said, 'Yeah, I would love to but I'm not sure if I can manage.' And he told me that he was dying of cancer. And then I saw him a couple of times.
"He was really, really sad about not spending time with me so I forgave him. I think forgiveness is a hard thing. But then it's like, 'OK, I don't have to deal with this big stone in my heart anymore.' So I think we came to something good. A month before he died."
Actress Noomi Rapace, who played Lisbeth Salander in the movie adaptations of writer Stieg Larsson’s bestselling Millennium trilogy, will play singer Lindblom opposite Ola Rapace, who will portray boxer Hogberg in Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke's new movie.
Lindblom and Hogberg became Sweden's top couple in the 1960s after Scandinavian tabloids hyped up their romance.
