Just when you thought the award shows ended with the Oscars, we get a reminder that there is one more to go. The MTV Movie Awards has opened up voting for nominees through April 9th for your favorite movies and stars in many categories.
From these votes a short list of nominees will be determined which will open a final round of voting from May 11th to June 5th. The winners will be announced live on MTV on June 6th at 9PM EST. From what I can tell the list seems to be based on movies released between March 2009 to March 2010 (only way to explain Hot Tub Time Machine's inclusion). This year Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen has a chance in six categories. Also added the other categories Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf are listed in case want to spread the Transformers love around.
Transformers 2 specific categories
Best WTF Moment - Isabel Lucas, pretender moment of turning into a Decepticon
Best Ass Kicking Star - Shia LaBeouf
Best Female Breakout Star - Isabel Lucas
Best Female Performance - Megan Fox
Best Male Performance - Shia LaBeouf
Support Transformers stars categories
Best Kiss - Amanda Seyfried & Megan Fox (Jennifer's Body)
Best Fight - Megan Fox vs Amanda Seyfried(Jennifer's Body)
Best Villain - Megan Fox(Jennifer's Body)
Best WTF Moment - Megan Fox, projectile vomits(Jennifer's Body)
Global Superstar - Shia LaBeouf
Oddly, Transformers was not included in the Best Fight category yet Jennifer's Body was. I don't think nominees are limited to human actors (beside voice work counts). On the bright side, MTV does allow for "write-in" votes at the bottom of the page for each category so nothing stopping you from making your own choices. Personally, the Forest Fight of Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) vs. Megatron (Hugo Weaving), Starscream (Charlie Adler) and Grindor strikes me as worthy.
To vote for Transformers: ROTF and other favorites, click here. The website does require you have or create an account and you can only make one choice per category so I guess some will have a hard choice to make.
While voting, make sure to give Betty White some love for Best Comedic Performance. The possibility of her winning and appearing at the show just strikes me something worth seeing. Thanks to Katie for the link.
