The oh-so-hip MTV 2002 Movie Awards favors small Hobbits with hairy feet.
Variety reported the fantasy epic Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring took in six nominations, including best picture, male performance (Elijah Wood), villain (Christopher Lee), action sequence, breakthrough male performer (Orlando Bloom) and best fight (Christopher Lee vs. Ian McKellen).
Actresses nominated for best female performance are Kate Beckinsale for Pearl Harbor, Halle Berry for Monster’s Ball, Angelina Jolie for Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Nicole Kidman for Moulin Rouge and Reese Witherspoon for Legally Blonde.
The nominations were determined by a poll of MTV and MTV2 fans, as will the winners, via phone and online balloting.
The MTV 2002 Movie Awards will be presented June 1 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles and will air on MTV June 6 at 9 p.m.
