2013 MTV Movie Awards: "Ted" and "Django Unchained" Lead the Nominees
By: Alexis Kuskevics
As Hollywood wraps up its line of prestigious award shows for the year, the public is already anticipating the most outrageous and offensive award show ever to air – the MTV Movie Awards. Whether you’re a Twilight fan (a twi-hard) or a Jennifer Lawrence fan, the MTV Movie Awards is almost certain to create more viral and memorable moments in its 21st year.
Scheduled to air on Sunday, April 14th, the producers of the show are already revealing the night’s most exciting acts. As of now, performers include Spring Breakers star Selena Gomez, while Zac Efron and Steve Carell are set to present various awards.
Leading the nominations are two entirely opposite films – a movie about a man and his teddy bear, and a film about a black slave trying to save his wife from first-time villain Leonardo DiCaprio. Surprisingly, Ted and Django Unchained lead the way with seven nominations each, competing against each other in categories such as "Movie of the Year", "Best Kiss", and "Best Fight."
While the award show is sure to entertain with hilarious category names, the public has made it clear that they are most excited to hear from the evening’s host and nominee, Ms. Rebel Wilson. After earning roars of laughter from audiences for her role as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect, Wilson is in the running to be society’s new favourite comedic actress. Critics are already assuming she’ll dominate the award show with her humor, so it’s no doubt she will also win the award for "Breakthrough Performance."
One more thing to get the public excited is rumor of the debut of a Catching Fire trailer during the ceremony. Being the sequel to The Hunger Games, one of the most successful films of 2012, Catching Fire is expected to be the most anticipated movie of the year. Jennifer Lawrence, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the franchise, is nominated for her Oscar-winning role in Silver Linings Playbook, so it is possible she will be the one presenting the preview.
As fans bid farewell to the Twilight series’ last MTV Movie Award nomination, and drool over the category of "Best Shirtless Scene", the night is set to entertain and make people laugh. And with humerous Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson hosting the ceremony, the 21st MTV Movie Awards will be “acca-awesome.”
