MTV Movie Awards 2010: ‘New Moon’ Dominates With Five Nominations

It’s that time of the year again: the MTV Movie Awards nominees are in! Surprisingly, it was “The Hangover” and notThe Twilight Saga: New Moon” that dominated the nominations, though with five nods a piece, “New Moon” and “Avatar” are giving “The Hangover’s” six nominations a run for its money.

The new category of Global Superstar was dominated by the “Twilight” gang as Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart stole three of the five spots. Johnny Depp and Daniel Radcliffe rounded out the category.

“New Moon” also got nods for Kristen as a Best Female Performance, Rob and Taylor as Best Male Performance, Kristen and Rob’s smooch(es?) for Best Kiss, and as the Best Movie. What “New Moon” didn’t produce was a Best Scared-As-Sh–t Performance, a Most Badass Star, Best Fight, WTF Moment or Villain, and neither a Best Breakout Performance nor a Best Comedic Performance. However, Anna Kendrick did get a Best Breakout Performance nod for her role in “Up in the Air” — a nod we totally agree with!

We were pretty excited to see Gaborey Sidibe, Chris Pine and Zach Galifianakis helped round out the Best Breakout Star category, as well as the fact Zach went on to get a nod in Best Comedic Performance (if he doesn’t win, we’ll start a riot!). “Dear John” also got a decent amount of loving with both a Best Male and Best Female Performance nomination, as well as Most Badass Star for Channing Tatum. We are a bit surprised they didn’t get a Best Kiss nod, though.

That category was dominated by the “Twilight” bunch, as Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning earned a spot for their smooch in “The Runaways” and Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift earned theirs for their now-famously life-changing makeout scene in “Valentine’s Day.” Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds in “The Proposal” and Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington in “Avatar” help round out the list.

Don’t miss the MTV Movie Awards, airing Sunday, June 6 at 9 p.m. ET on MTV!
