MTV Movie Awards 2007

Not only is pot-stirring reality show superproducer Mark Burnett taking over producing duties of the 2007 MTV Movie Awards but the show will, for the first time, be broadcast live, which means the magnitude of shit that's sure to go wrong will be so overwhelming, MTV higher-ups will be wishing for the days of an exposed Janet Jackson nipple. In any case, the nominees are out and it seems the comic-based stylistic beefcake warrior actioner 300 leads the pack with five nominations, followed closely behind by PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST, which managed to snag four nominations.

In addition to opening a Pandora's box of mayhem by airing the show live, they've also added two new categories - "Best Summer Movie You Haven't Seen Yet" and "Best Movie Spoof". For the latter, anyone is welcome to participate by submitting their spoofs to THIS SITE and letting people vote on it. And speaking of voting, it will continue until May 29th either through the show's OFFICIAL SITE, by texting “MOVIES” to 22422, calling 1-877-MTV-VOTE or texting your vote during the actual broadcast where one category will be left open. The show airs June 3rd with Sarah Silverman bringing her patented brand of uproariously racist humor to host. Check out the full list of nominees below.

whatever mtv

they say these awards are for the popular movies that people actually like (not the old guys at the academy) but then they mix in acting nominees from period pieces and stuff which defeats the purpose of these dumb awards. It's just way too random and I can't understand most of the choices, what kind of idiots who probably don't watch movies choose these nominees?

Also, Best Summer Movie You Haven't Seen Yet? What the hell? Don't they have enough pointless categories already? If I won that I

Also, Best Summer Movie You Haven't Seen Yet? What the hell? Don't they have enough pointless categories already? If I won that I wouldn't even be proud or thankful, I'd be wondering why they'd waste time with it.

Stomp the Yard? Little Man?

Stomp the Yard got 2 nominations? And Little Man even get 1? That's just brutal. How did these movies get nominated and so many get left out completely?

Dear Tecmo

I just had a revelation of the mind when I read that. Now it all makes sense and I am punching myself in the testicles. But damn...Evan Almighty...I mean really? Seriously?

MTV SUCKS!

There should be an award for the "best movie never seen" And the winner should be GRINDHOUSE,For all the stupid fucks who didnt see that great film should shoot them selves in the fucking head! Also mtv awards are gay, I only liked last years awards because I love jessica alba and she is my favorite woman in the world and she made that dying award show fun for once. MTV should think about changing there name because everytime you put the channel on you see nothing but tv shows and NOT music.

Settle down

DrkBlueXG.... look at when the show airs. By that time, both Spidey and Pirates will have already released, therefore making them relatively ineligible for the category, as a great number of people aren't going to wait very long to see either flick. Agreed its kind of a stupid category, but Spidey and the Pirates were left off the list for a reason.

OMFG

Like what was said before...where the hell is Brandon Routh and Daniel Craig? More importantly, who made the list for Best Summer Movie You Haven't Seen Yet? I about fell out of my chair when I seen Evan Almighty on that list. No Spiderman 3 or Pirates 3? Looks like a studio paid off MTV to stir up some buzz for mediocre films by giving them a nomination in a "newly created category". And WTF is that Hairspray?!?! Jesus Christ...They might as well give a nomination to "Pathfinder" for best

The only credit I give this list is 300 for best movie and a Justin Timberlake nom for alpha dog. BTW... WHERE THE HELL IS GRINDHOUSE?!?!?!

Casino Royale and Superman Returns?

Who the hec compiled this list? Where is Danny Craig and Routh???? Best summer flicks not seen and no mention of Die Hard 4 or Spidey?? Best fight is mostly from comedies? Hahaha and we wonder why action films are not doing well when they don't even mention Mi:3 brigde attack or Casino Royale Miami Airport chase. Gosh the Oscars were soo much better.. Just give them all the Pirates and 300 the most overrated movies ever !!!!!!!!!!!

The awards are bad as usual but...

...even judging my the nominations listed (unless I'm corrected)I guess even eMpTyV thinks Epic Movie is unworthy of a nod. That movie just screamed, "approved for eMpTyV watching morons."

I have to agree with Vega. How can you vote for "Best Summer Movie You Haven't Seen Yet?" That is stupid. This years nominations are kind of a let down and I usually really enjoy the MTV movie awards.

Wow. They managed to nominate BLADES OF GLORY for Best Picture, yet they blatantly forgot to nominate the kiss between Heder & Fischer.
