MTV Movie Awards voting begins
Wednesday 23 March 2011
Online voting is now open through April 5 for moviegoers to select favorite stars, cinematic moments and films for the 20th MTV Movie Awards, airing June 5 at Universal City, California.
Films released up until March 18 are eligible, including Rango featuring Johnny Depp and Limitless starring Bradley Cooper.
Blockbusters from Inception and Iron Man 2 to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse are among the 22 candidates for Best Movie. Also included are films not part of the recent award show season, include Despicable Me, Kick-Ass and Jackass 3, more suited to MTV viewers.
Best Movie will remain open for voting through the live ceremony on June 5, set for 9 pm ET/8 pm PT from the Gibson Amphitheatre near Hollywood.
Besides Best Movie and Best Male and Female actors, the 13 categories will include Best Kiss, Fight and Villain, Breakout Stars, Comedic Performance, and a new category, Best Line from a Movie.
Some of the candidates for the most unforgettable line include Justin Timberlake in The Social Network responding to Andrew Garfield's character: "A million dollars isn't cool. You know what's cool? A billion dollars!" and Robert Pattinson in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse asking Kristen Stewart's Bella, "Doesn't he own a shirt?"
Fun categories, outrageous comedy and memorable performances are hallmarks of the show, drawing Hollywood's top stars, such as Tom Cruise's reenactment last year of his movie producer character, Les Grossman, from Tropic Thunder.
Once the nominees are chosen, voting will run from May 3 - June 4 to select winners, who will then be presented with MTV's Golden Popcorn Trophy at the ceremony.
The 20th annual MTV Movie Awards will be telecast live on June 5.
