May 6 2008MTV Movie Awards Nominees Announced, Extremely Relevant


Any awards show brave and thoughtful enough to nominate National Treasure: Book of Secrets as the best picture of the year deserves our special attention. So clearly the MTV Movie Award nominations warrant your perusal. As executive producer Mark Burnett, and anyone with half a brain says, "I consider the MTV Movie Awards to be the most relevant movie award show in America today." No doubt! To reiterate, he's referring to the same awards that imply that there may have been no better movie made in 2007 than the second National Treasure, and that Jessica Biel may have churned out the best performance of any other actress when she let Adam Sandler touch her breasts since she thought he was gay.

Anyway, here they are:

· Ellen Page- Juno
· Keira Knightley - Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End
· Katherine Heigl - Knocked Up
· Amy Adams- Enchanted
· Jessica Biel- I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry

First? Ah, who gives a shit...

Wow, they've mananged to pick a handful of movies and somehow create an awards show honoring the less-than-a-dozen actors that were in them..

Fucking pop culture FAGGOTS mwuahahah

Oh god, my brain hurts after trying to process the information posted here. Sweet Christmas. Step Up 2? Jumper? Spider Man 3? Where's that emergency suicide kit I keep around here?

They have Alien vs. the Predator for best fight.....and MTV wants to be taken seriously??

Wait - how can you nominate a `best summer movie so far` that hasn't even been released yet? WTF is that all about?

Best kiss- Harry Potter?

Fight - Jumper? Did they even fight in that movie? I don't remember them fighting. Sure, they whined at each other some, but actual fisticuffs?

Zac Efron? ZAC EFRON?

Ah, shit, who gives a crap about this popcorn fest outside of the US anyway?

Wait until the day after to get all the pretty ladies in the skimpy clothing. Although, probably not Miley this year.

The Mouse is watching. Everyone.

the only good nomination they present to us is Javier Bardem for best villian .....

Every single other nomination is crap.

No no no- Johnny Depp as Sweeney is the best nomination, everyone else's performances were pretty dissapointing....

"National Treasure as best movie" ???? Wow.
I'm not even going to watch this crap...

Where are the best movie of the year awards?
And why the hell isn't The Dark Knight on Best Summer Movies?
What a let down

i dont know why any of you anticipate these awards, they are always cheesy & un-clever & aren't doing anything interesting anymore. not like they used to in 80' & 90's. they are also nominating these awards sooo late, do you really care who wins what? we've already seen 3 award shows that nominated these movies back in the begining of the year. plus they do 97490759365832686587356 re-runs which make you not want to turn the channel to MTV.

Where's Best Male Performance? I like how Keira Knightley was nominated for her performance in "Pirates" and not for, say, "Atonement".

What a bag of shite, honestly yeah Depp is a brilliant actor howeever these awards are just so populist and commercial, so they can fuck off.

Megan Fox better win her thing based on hotness alone. SHOOO WEEEE

I hate MTV so much

Johnny Depp should definitely take the comedic high honors. He keeps his character fresh and full of fun. You can't help but pull for him to always come out on top-even the good guys are bad when it comes to your loyalty to him. Good show and waiting for the next sequel to come in from sea.

johnny depp is tim burton's bitch like leonardo dicaprio is martin scorsese's.
when he's not doing quirky, eccentric roles he just looks like a whiny twat.

mtv would nominate him.
and megan fox...the most static actress since jessica alba.

best summer movie so far is a small step up from last year's "best movie you haven't seen", which was really MTV-speak for "producers that gave us the most money for their movie to win the most absurd batshit award". transformers had every star on the red carpet, transformers on the red carpet, etc. and won that award. what a shock....

Is it just me or has this award show like seriously degenerated in the last 4 years, not only are the nominees terrible but so are the presenters, i remember Jack Black being embarassingly awful and Sarah Silverman's monologue sucking badly. For a channel that was once so innovative, i think its safe to the MTV is soo over. As for the selections for this years' award, this is clearly the sign of the apocalypse. jumper? i pronoune you chuck and whatever, step up 2..etc

Is there seriously a category called "Best Summer Movie So Far"?! What the hell does that even mean?

Didn't Disturbia come out like 2 years ago?

Why the hell does everyone think Johnny Depp was just so AMAZING in Sweeney Todd?!?!? He was basically Edward Scissor hands with a chip on his shoulder. The fact that he got nominated for a Golden Globe but Denzel Washington didn't for American Gangster .... it's a travesty. Basically MTV Movie awards has turned into Kids Choice Awards ...for all those kids who's parents don't care if they see R-rated movies. Jack Black hosted the Kids Choice Awards too.. I get that it's supposed to be the less stuffy version of the Oscars but i think MTV thinks it's viewers are far less intelligent then they are...(however their viewers also tune in to see The Hills so maybe im giving my generation to much credit)
