MTV Movie Award Nominees Feature NEW MOON, AVATAR, HARRY POTTER, ALICE IN WONDERLAND, and THE HANGOVER

     May 12, 2010

The 2010 MTV Movie Awards have just opened voting for the best films and cinematic moments of the year, and the Best Movie nominees represent five out of the seven highest grossing films since last year’s awards: Alice in Wonderland, Avatar, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, The Hangover, and The Twilight Saga: New Moon.  Noticeably absent, with $836 million worldwide to its name: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.  Take that, racist caricature vehicles!

Unlike the snooty Oscars, MTV honors such offbeat categories as “Best Kiss”, “Best WTF Moment”, “Best Scared-As-S**t Performance” (their asterisks, not mine), and “Global Superstar”, where three of the five nominees are from New Moon; that’s a pretty good indication of Twilight‘s nomination dominance (although The Hangover edged it out with six nominations to New Moon‘s five).  Check out the full list of nominees, plus an amusing promo featuring host Aziz Ansari and Kristin Bell, after the jump.
