UNIVERSAL CITY, California — “The Hunger Games” star Leven Rambin is beyond appreciative of all the love fans have shown the movie since it dropped in March. But, she still has one request of you tributes: get out and vote for the flick at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards going down this Sunday!
“All the fans that saw the ‘Hunger Games’ — they came out to all the events, they came out to the malls and the premiere and they camped [out],” Rambin told MTV News. “This was the first movie in our franchise and you guys showed so much love and hard-core dedication, so please give our little movie some votes this year.”
The film is vying for a Golden Popcorn against the likes of “Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ and the last “Harry Potter” flick, so Rambin knows the competition is stiff. “We know we’re the underdog and we’re the new kids and we really pushed through,” she said. “We made a great movie and you guys were awesome the whole time. So vote for ‘Hunger Games’ [for] Best Cast and I’m sure we’ll be there to receive our honors. Thank you for your support.”
In addition to Best Cast, the film is also up for Movie of the Year, Best Male Performance, Best Female Performance, Best Hero, Breakthrough Performance, Best On-Screen Transformation , Best Fight and Best Kiss.
