Are u kidding me that Party Rock Anthem is nominated?! What about It Will Rain fromBrunoMars ?!? or Safe and Sound from Taylor Swift?!? So Pissed. Good luck with your viewrs this year MTV.

# 6

Why won’t they say who chose the nominations? They’re missing Twilight in a sea of mainstream box office movies. Good PR work but not exactly representative of, you know, the movie goers.

Harry Potter forever @ 04/30/2012 at 10:00 pm

The hunger games is good, but Harry Potter IS SO MUCH BETTER! Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is a masterpiece and deserves many awards. Breaking Dawn is sucks people… Emma Watson and Harry Potter, GO! <3

# 8

The Help!!! :)

# 9

So now it is Hunger Games vs. Harry Potter, let the voting begins! Sucks that Twilight isn’t thrown in the mix with this new nomination system. Because Twilight will crush them all?

And why does it seem like the same exact people and movies were nominated in every single category?

Ugh. Bridesmaids was complete CRAP! I can’t understand how ANYONE liked that movie. I watched the last half speed-reading the English subtitles on my DVD at 2x speed, and it was STILL boring.

Twilight: BLEAH
Help: Meh.
Harry Potter: Done with it.

I guess that means: Go, Hunger Games!

…`it’s MTV, come on.. we all know twilight and the hunger games will win everything. MTV’s the biggest bunch of kiss asses. `i’m surprise they didn’t throw britney spears a nomination for just being britney spears.

Twilight only received two nominations this year. See the viewership go down. MTV is owned by Lionsgate who also owns the Hunger Games. See all the Hunger Games nominations and Jennifer Lawrence leading the pack for most nominations for a single person? Twilight doesn’t need the support anymore. It’s the last movie. Everyone will want to see how it ends.

No zac efron What the hell

This should be interesting…Apparently, Entertainment Weekly is saying that the “nominees were selected by a panel of actors, producers, agents and industry tastemakers instead of via online vote from the public.” I’m happy with the Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Bridesmaids nominations. Hopefully, the show is good this year. It has been kind of “meh” for the last couple of years.

hahahhaah Kristen Stewart and Rpats are snubbed!!

I always get my hopes up, thinking that this is going to be the year that the real winners like Harry Potter will win because it’s their last year. However, it’s going to go to Twilight. Gotta give you this tweens, you sure do fight hard.

Emma Watson is soooooooooo A W E S O M E

I wonder if she will roll her eyes at anyone else this year. Jennifer Lawrence?

This is the first time in about 3-4 years where I did not see Twilight Saga completely dominate the categories. I don’t know if the voting changed or what, but I was shocked.
Now hopefully they can disperse the winners this year and not make it the MTV Twilight Awards.

It would be really nice to see the HP cast win. It was such a wonderful movie and the trio are the best. But it would be fine if Hunger Games won. It was a pretty good movie and I really like Jennifer Lawrence.

I hope for Drive and Bridesmaids to win, but I’m sure the Hunger Games/ Harry Potter will dominate these awards.

Thank God Twilight is only nominated for two awards. I haven’t watched the MTV movie awards for three years because Twilight won every category, even though those movies are absolutely crap. They ruined that awards show. GO HUNGER GAMES.

It is was a fan driven award show. Why blame Twilight for winning if their fans got behind their movie. Not everyone has fans who will vote for them over and over again. Even Harry Potter fans could not keep up. Its nothing more than jealousy. There should be a conflict of interest if Lionsgate owns MTV. Something stinks about all of this.

Lets face it.They don’t want twilight to win again….Can you imagine 4 years in a row?
