SO DID THIS ONE ACTUALLY BITE AND SUCK? The big surprise in the MTV Movie Awards is the general snubbing of Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Part 2, with a mere single nomination (Taylor Lautner for "Best Shirtless Performance," which I expect he will lose to Channing Tatum) for the vampire saga finale, even though the first 4 movies each won Best Movie.  A few other things of note:
  • The "Scared-As-S**t Performance" category is uber-weird, with Jennifer Lawrence (for House at the End of the Street) up against Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty.  There are many words I'd use to describe Chastain's Maya, but "scared" isn't among them.
  • Perks of Being A Wallflower gets some much deserved love for Watson and Miller's performances, as well as love in "best kiss" and "best musical moment."
  • Given that Rebel Wilson is hosting, no surprise to see her get a Breakthrough nod for Pitch Perfect, but she also gets into Best Female Performance.  Pitch Perfect also gets a musical moment nod and a "WTF moment" nod for Anna Camp puking.
Personally, I'm hoping for a live Barden Bellas performance, and for Rebel Wilson to be funny.


  1. It's especially surprising given the addition of the fake ending, which REALLY helped the movie out. There isn't a category for that, though, is there?

    I kinda figured these awards would be the perfect opportunity for Perks of Being a Wallflower to get a best picture nomination. Oh well.

    Best ending that wasn't in the book? Clearly there should be.
