It is a case of extremes as far as the nominations for the 18th Annual MTV Movie Awards (announced earlier today) are concerned. On one hand, we have Twilight (which was totally ignored when it came to all other 2008 film awards), scoring a field best seven nods; on the other, we have Slumdog Millionaire (which won every prize in sight, including Oscar's Best Picture), coming in a close second with six nominations. Both films are vying for the top popcorn trophy for Best Movie, alongside The Dark Knight, High School Musical 3: Senior Year and Iron Man.
Among the other notable nominees in MTV's many wacky categories (including the new "Best WTF Moment") are Heath Ledger's Joker up for Best Villain (gee, do you think he'll win?), a rematch of the Academy's Best Actress line-up (Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie and Anne Hathaway, albeit for totally different films for the latter two) and two man-on-man lip locks (Milk's James Franco and Sean Penn and I Love You, Man's Thomas Lennon and Paul Rudd) in the Best Kiss race.
As with the nominations, anyone can vote for the final awards, which will be presented live on MTV May 31 (hosted by Saturday Night Live's Andy Samberg). For a quick look at all the nominees, see the comments section below.
