The MTV Movie Awards Feast on Oscar Leftovers (and Munch on its Own Remains)



Is it just me or are the MTV Movie Awards trying to get some street cred?

Or, at least that's what it looks like from this year's nominees, which could pose as the Oscar reject list. From Kristin Wiig's underrated performance in Bridesmaids to Joseph Gordon-Levitt's wonderfully heartbreaking portrayal in 50/50, this year's awards are definitely try to break back some legitimacy.

But of course, they bring it back with their standard ridiculous categories (is best on-screen transformation new to their repertoire?), like the hilarious bad nominees like The Vow. Some things will never change....

I used to watch this live for the longest time but I've pretty much settle on listening to the winners after the fact, Best Cast should be intersting though.

After last year's absolute travesty I'm shocked by the quality in this list. I mean, there are still some silly choices, but Twilight seems to have worn thin now. I think it is because they've made an academy to vote for the nominations, instead of teenagers.
