MTV Movie Awards 2013 Nominees

What we generally consider "awards season" ended with the Oscars back in February, but those rebels over at MTV are in the business of bucking tradition, you see, so we're getting the famed MTV Movie Awards this weekend. In the middle of April. After most people have generally moved on and begun preparing for 2013's Summer slate. In any case, read on to find out who's up for such prestigious awards as "Best WTF Moment" and "Best Shirtless Performance," the winners of which (and so many more) will be announced during a live broadcast on Sunday, April 14th, at 9/8c. Oh, those kooky MTV kids...

Apparently MTV thinks its viewers are too dumb to consider directorial merit.

If they're letting the kids vote- it'll be "The Avengers" all the way!

I doubt it, Avengers didn't win any awards at the Kids Choice Awards.

Wasn't it Hunger Games that took home most of those awards? If that's the case then I think Avengers will probably win, as Hunger Games was nominated for last years MTV awards, making it the first time MTV picked a great film to hand the best picture award to since Return of the King.

Yes, The Hunger Games won Favorite Movie. I would love to see Avengers win but for kids voting, MTV Movie Awards is not really for kids.

For once the Kids picked some really good movies. Had they just replaced Ted with Skyfall, not a single one of the best picture nominees would have had less than 87% positive rating. There are a lot of oscar years that had lower rated choices.

You're right 4 of the 5 films have a 87%-93%, scores like those do indeed look like oscar films scores. At least there was truly quality films in the 'Movie Of The Year' awards for a change this year.

It was nominated for last year's MTV awards. For some reason, their year starts from the begining of April.

Wow, these are....surprisingly decent. I almost didn't bother checking these out because I thought it wouldn't matter who the nominess were because Twilight would sweep everything, but it didn't even get nominated for best movie, actor or actress. Heck it only has one nomination total.

This is exactly what the MTV awards should be. They're not serious awards and they were never intended to be. Instead they should be there to give recognition to those crowd pleasers that the more serious awards shows tend to look down upon and that's exactly what they're doing here. I would have preffered it if they had replaced Ted with Skyfall, but oh well welcome back to decency MTV.

I know right? If MTV thinks tweeners are the major demographic the fact that there are so many Violent and Sexual R movies nominated is nothing short of a miracle. It reminds me of waaaay back when Seven was nominated in a couple of categories.

And let's not forget 1994 when Pulp Fiction won the award for best movie. They actually had some pretty great choices up till Return of the King (in some years you could argue their choices for best movie were better than what the oscars picked). After that though the quality of their choices started dropping. Then Twilight came and the MTVs lost whatever respect they still had left.
