2009 MTV Movie Awards Nominations

Only one awards show gives out pointless, meaningless awards and yet, are so much fun to watch. One one awards show has categories like Best Kiss, Best Villain and Best WTF Moment. And only in one awards show can Twilight rack up seven nominations, almost twice as many that The Dark Knight. The awards show I'm talking about is the MTV Movie Awards.

This was the first year where the viewers chose the nominees. That's over and they have been announced. Voting just started and will run through May 27. Only for the Best Movie category will voting run all the way to the end of the live show on May 31. Have your say by voting at the MTV Movie Awards homepage. Most of the nominees are ridiculous, but I have to say I had fun voting. Best Kiss and Best WTF Moment were tough ones. Be warned, there are two gay kiss scenes nominated this year. Enough talk. Here are the crazy nominations.
