‘Inception,’ ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Eclipse’ Lead the MTV Movie Award Nominations

InceptionIt’s that time again, the MTV Movie Awards nominations are out and once again, we can marvel at the ridiculous categories that the network formerly known as Music Television dreamed up. This awards show is like the spring break of film awards. After all the sincerity and somber ceremonies during the awards season, this is the one where Howard Stern might show up in ass-less chaps or two actresses might kiss onstage when they get an award; it’s also the one that isn’t afraid to hire a legitimate comedian to host the dang thing so we might laugh instead of looking at James Franco and Anne Hathaway like they must have lost their minds. The comedian this year is SNL’s Jason Sudeikis — or Floyd (sigh) if you’re a die-hard 30 Rock fan.

Most importantly, it’s the ceremony where viewers can actually participate in what movie gets which moonman because everything is determined by online voting — granted, it’s not like we’re looking at the best of cinema across all categories for this thing. This of course means that The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will probably win everything because fan girls are stationed noon and night voting to make sure the Edward and Bella kiss beats the Jacob and Bella kiss for the “Best Kiss” award. Well, let’s get these nominations lined up so you can start figuring how who to vote for.
