MTV has announced the nominees for the “2014 MTV Movie Awards,” setting the stage for an epic showdown between critically-acclaimed films The Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle, comedic hits We’re the Millers and This Is The End, blockbuster franchises The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and more.
Kenyan Oscar winner and red carpet darling Lupita Nyong’o takes her place among the nominees for this year’s show – a fitting tribute for the actress, who got her first professional on screen acting break on the MTV Base HIV & AIDS awareness drama, Shuga.
Lupita will be going up against A-listers and Hollywood veterans Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Anniston for a coveted Movie Awards trophy in the Best Female Performance category.
Fans can get in on the fierce competition by casting votes for their favorite nominees at www.MovieAwards.MTV.com beginning Thursday 6 March until Saturday 12 April in categories you’ll never see in any other awards show, including Best Comedic Performance, Best Villain, Best Kiss, Best Scared-As-St Performance, Best Musical Moment, #WTF Moment, Best On-Screen Duo, Best Fight, Best Shirtless Performance and more.
This year, the “MTV Movie Awards” has the distinction of being the only Awards show to nominate cinematic legend Robert De Niro, Kanye West and Joan Rivers in the same category (Best Cameo), see Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto take on Ice Cube and Kevin Hart (Best On-Screen Duo), and pit Jennifer Aniston against some of the hottest men on the planet (Zac Efron, Chris Hemsworth, Leonardo DiCaprio and Sam Claflin) for the coveted Best Shirtless Performance category.
