Vampires, werewolves and wizards — oh my! Toss in a time-traveling [movieperson id=”438080″]Zac Efron[/movieperson] and a letter-writing soldier, and you have the race for Best Male Performance at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, airing this Sunday, June 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
Efron might have a leg up on the other guys, since he took home this very Golden Popcorn last year for “High School Musical 3: Senior Year,” but [movieperson id=”365131″]Robert Pattinson[/movieperson], [movieperson id=”373803″]Taylor Lautner[/movieperson], [movieperson id=”264615″]Daniel Radcliffe[/movieperson] and [movieperson id=”380573″]Channing Tatum[/movieperson] will no doubt put up a good fight.
Last year’s winner returned to high school for “17 Again,” this time as a grown man trapped in a 17-year-old’s body. Can Efron prove that he’s the big man on campus again?
If supernatural beings are more your thing, then [movie id=”414921″]”New Moon”[/movie] offers up two performances that will certainly get your blood pumping — which, if you’re around Pattinson’s Edward Cullen , could be a dangerous thing. Bella Swan’s man faces off against her best friend, Jacob Black, played by a beefed-up Lautner . This is the ultimate case of Team Edward vs. Team Jacob. Of course, Lautner, Pattinson and fellow “Twilight Saga” star Kristen Stewart will be at the Movie Awards on Sunday to present an exclusive new clip from “Eclipse” !
Radcliffe is making a compelling case for the Golden Popcorn, reprising his teen-wizard role in “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” There are no halves here: He can either win it or lose it.
It may take a little magic for Tatum to take home the prize. He made girls cry and made Amanda Seyfried swoon in “Dear John,” but he’s up against some stiff competition in this category. Dear John — we mean Tatum — we’re rooting for you!
Which guy are you pulling for to win the Golden Popcorn? Tell us in the comments!
