MTV Movie Awards Nominees 2012 Full List

The Hunger Games and Bridesmaids Lead the Pack For the 2012 MTV Movie Awards Nominees

Is The Hunger Games the new Twilight? If the new crop of nominees for the MTV Movie Awards are any indication, we might be in for a regime change. Along with Bridesmaids, The Hunger Games is leading the pack, including nods for male and female performance and movie of the year. Of course the real question will be whether or not Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson can take down Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart for best kiss, a category the Twilight couple has dominated for the past three years.


As for the rest of the nominees, big comedies from the year like Crazy, Stupid, Love and 21 Jump Street got a lot of love, as did the final installment in the Harry Potter series. There are also a handful of new categories, like best music and the oh-so-prestigious best on-screen dirt bag. Check out the full list of nominees before the show airs on June 3.
