MTV Movie Awards Nominations: Respectable Group of Nominees

The MTV Movie Awards announced their nominations tonight. These are pretty awesome considering [i]Twilight[/i] has swept these awards the past four years. This year it only picked up one nomination for Taylor Lautner in Best Shirtless Performance. So it’s an improvement all-around. Django Unchained, Silver Linings Playbook & Ted picked up the most nominations. They were nominated in almost every category. My favorite nominations: Quvenzhane Wallis in Breakthrough Performance for Beasts of the Southern Wild and the kids from Moonrise Kingdom in Best Kiss.
