There are very few characters who can get your blood churning like this year's contenders for Best Villain at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, airing this Sunday, June 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. Everyone from a tyrannous queen and a Nazi commander to a mob boss and a power-hungry colonel are in the running to be named baddest of the bad.
First up is "Inglourious Basterds" star Christoph Waltz, whose stone-cold Nazi colonel, Hans Landa, proudly accepts his "Jew hunter" nickname. Will he hunt down a Golden Popcorn? Only time will tell.
Being the only lady nominated might work in Helena Bonham Carter's favor. Playing the wicked Red Queen in "Alice in Wonderland," she certainly held the imaginations of moviegoers everywhere, but can she do the same for Movie Awards voters?
All good comedies need an antagonist, and the guys in "The Hangover" found theirs in Ken Jeong. What did viewers learn from Jeong's turn as Mr. Chow? Just hope a mob boss' casino winnings don't get lost. We pray he doesn't lose at the show. Yikes!
The stars of "Avatar" proved that even in a world that only exists in the mind of James Cameron, the characters can feel as real as the people they know. And Stephen Lang's portrayal of Colonel Miles Quaritch had fans fearing for the Na'vi.
Tom Felton gave Daniel Radcliffe a run for his magic wand in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." Playing Harry's magical archrival, Draco Malfoy, Felton was a worthy competitor for Harry, but can he cast a spell on the Movie Awards?
Who do you think is bad enough to win at the big show? Discuss in the comments!
