With only three days left until the big show, we’ve been rolling out the many reasons you’ll want to tune in to this year’s Jason Sudeikis-hosted event, and a preview clip of the hotly anticipated final installment in the “Potter” series is just the latest. At last year’s Movie Awards, MTV debuted an exclusive look at part 1 of “Deathly Hallows,” which teased the movie’s dark tone; “Part 2” looks to be even darker — and more action-packed. Also on Sunday, “Twilight” stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will be presenting an exclusive scene from “Breaking Dawn” at the show, which kicks off at 9 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. (And as if that weren’t enough, a “Breaking Dawn” surprise is coming your way during the 7:30 p.m. ET/PT pre-show.)
“Deathly Hallows, Part 1” is up for six awards at Sunday’s ceremony, including Best Kiss, Best Fight, Best Villain, Best Female Performance, Best Male Performance and Best Movie.
When MTV News caught up with 2011 Best Villain nominee Tom Felton earlier this month, the “Harry Potter” star said he was “humbled” by the nod, a category in which he was also nominated and won last year. “All I can send is my endless appreciation to everyone who is online and campaigning,” he said. “I really appreciate it. It’s an endless, sweet gesture, after 10 years, that Draco gets a lot of love. It’s ironic, in a way, but I love it and appreciate it very much.”
