Anne Hathaway nabbed a nomination for Best Musical Performance.
The snow is melting (well, save for that imminent NYC nor’easter), the birds are singing, the flowers are (almost) blooming — can you tell spring is coming?? And with spring comes, yep, the 2013 MTV Movie Awards! That’s right: Now that all of the dudes who kinda look like wizards and all those three-hour award shows have run their course, the MTV Movie Awards are here to show the film-loving community how it’s really done. We’re gonna celebrate your ACTUAL favorite movies of the last year (and not just the ones you kinda lie to people about seeing *COUGH”Lincoln”COUGH*). And while we love all the show’s categories and nominees, the one nearest and dearest to our hearts HAS to be Best Musical Moment — sorry, Best Scared-As-Sh– Moment, you’re a close second.
Find out the nominees for the 2013 MTV Movie Award for Best Musical Moment after the jump
Anne Hathaway — “Les Misérables”: This year, Anne Hathaway’s heart-wrenching performance of Fantine’s “I Dreamed A Dream” from “Les Misérables” was OUR everything. And all y’all better recognize, regardless of any supposed Oscar nipple dresses and high-pitched breathy acceptance speeches. Anne may have her share of naysayers, but you CANNOT deny how well she threw herself into that bald and busted role. And sang LIVE to boot. Oh, what’s that? Yeah, haters to the left.
Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller — “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”: Who could un-see that touching (and borderline manic pixie) “Come On Eileen” dance scene featuring Emma Watson, Ezra Miller, and Logan Lerman in “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower”? We miss our besties (and yes, even high school) just thinking about it.
Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash and Adam Rodriguez — “Magic Mike”: And speaking of touching, we know it’s all look-but-don’t-touch with “Magic Mike,” but Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, and Adam Rodriguez’s performance of “It’s Raining Men” made us want to be some serious lawbreakers up in here.
Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Alexis Knapp, Ester Dean and Hana Mae Lee — “Pitch Perfect”: Breaking the law also kinda reminds us of Rebel Wilson (she’s got a law degree, remember?!), our Movie Awards host and nominee along with Anna Kendrick, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Alex Knapp, Ester Dean, and Hanna Mae Lee in “Pitch Perfect.” Somehow, these girls managed to mash the best elements of college a cappella with “Glee”-caliber singing and dancing, which kinda deserves an award in of itself.
Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence — “Silver Linings Playbook”: Lastly, this dance-heavy musical moment stars everyone’s favorite in-their-head BFF Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in “Silver Linings Playbook.” And if J-Law wins this one, here’s hoping (a) she makes it onstage safely, and (b) she and Bradley bust out their “Silver Linings” “Dirty Dancing” lift.
