by |

You thought the awards season ended with the Oscars? Please. MTV's just gearing up for their movie awards, which will be broadcast worldwide on June 8th -- but we have all the nominations listed just a click away. (Interesting to note that not only were Paris Hilton & Rob Schneider nominated for awards, but also that "Hustle & Flow" earned three noms -- a movie produced by "MTV Films.")

More than an award show, but a film unto itself, MTV: Music Television today announced the cast, or nominees, of the ?2006 MTV Movie Awards.? Up for starring roles are the ?40-Year-Old Virgin? and ?Wedding Crashers,? each receiving five nominations. Also vying for the spotlight are ?Batman Begins,? ?Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,? ?Hustle & Flow,? ?Sin City? and ?Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith? with three nominations each. Filming June 3rd at Sony Picture Studios in Culver City, CA, the ?2006 MTV Movie Awards? will premiere to audiences nationwide on Thursday, June 8th at 9pm ET/PT on MTV.



MTV also announced it will cast for new categories of ?Best Hero,? ?Sexiest Performance? and the ?mtvU Student Filmmaker Award? for the first time ever. And in another Movie Awards first, all of this year?s categories, including ?Best Performance,? will make no distinction between male and female. Breaking the gender barrier and award show tradition, both actors and actresses will be vying for the same coveted golden popcorns.



Fans can vote for the entire nominated cast of the ?2006 MTV Movie Awards? by visiting movieawards.mtv.com before May 19th . Fans can also vote from their mobile phone by texting ?MOVIEAWARDS? to 91757 to receive a ballot.

?This year's Movie Awards will be more than an awards show -- it's an experience completely inspired by the movies, and everything we love about them,? said Christina Norman, President, MTV. ?This year's cast of movies and stars are all deserving nominees, and there is no doubt this year's Movie Awards will in itself, be a movie to remember.?



Starring Hollywood?s hottest actors and celebrities, the ?2006 MTV Movie Awards? promises to be one of the summer?s biggest blockbusters. Sources close to the production have remained tight lipped, revealing little of the project?s storyline or script except to say mystery, adventure and mayhem prevail. MTV will announce other starring roles in the upcoming weeks including the project?s leading man and/or lady, along with featured bands and performers making up the production?s soundtrack.

The ?2006 MTV Movie Awards? will be seen in 171 countries/territories via 50 music programming services, and in 23 languages in more than 479.5 million households.
