The 2015 MTV Movie Award Nominations List Is The Only Place 'Mockingjay' Will Show Up Next To 'Selma'
If someone were to ask you what your favorite movie of 2014 was, I have a feeling your answer wouldn't be, "Well I'm torn between two — Mockingjay and Selma, so I hope they're up for the same awards!" Not that they weren't both great movies, but they were so incredibly different that it would be weird for them to show up in the same category... unless you're talking about MTV, where weirdness is king! The nominations for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, Apr. 12 were released Wednesday, and right up top in Movie of the Year, you have Oscar-nominated titles like American Sniper, Boyhood, Whiplash, Selma... and Mockingjay and Guardians of the Galaxy. Which weren't nominated for any Academy Awards. Y'know, in case you missed the show and were curious.
The rest of the nods make slightly more sense than last year's nominations, with the usual suspects in the Best Female and Male Performance categories, just skewing younger for the demographic that watches the show, although of course this is MTV, so right next to Breakthrough Performance and best duo, we also have Best Scared-As-S**t Performance and Best Shirtless Performance. As you do. Fingers crossed that Kate Upton wins in the latter category, because I'd say this is The Other Woman's one shot at an award all season long.
Here are the rest of the nominees!
