If you’ve been chewing your fingernails to itty-bitty bloody shreds in anticipation of the announcement of this year’s MTV Movie Awards nominations…keep on chewing, my friend, because we’re not quite there yet. Why? Because this year, for the first time ever, we’ll be announcing the 2013 contenders during our very own live 2013 MTV Movie Awards Nominations Spectacular!
So mark your calendars: On Tuesday, March 5, at 7:58 p.m. ET, MTV’s Josh Horowitz will be joined on-air by Movie Awards star Rebel Wilson to reveal the Movie of the Year nominees. And then, it’s off to MTV.com for a half-hour livestream! And then, the rest of the nominees list will be announced, including not only classic favorites like “Best Kiss” and “Best Fight”, but also new-fangled categories like “Best Shirtless Performance” and “Best Musical Moment”! And…actually, you should stop chewing now, before you accidentally eat your own fingers in all the excitement.
Also on tap for this year’s ceremony: the inaugural presentation of a very special Comedic Genius Award to Will Ferrell, for his fantabulous contributions to the world of comedy over the years. (And by “fantabulous contributions,” we mean “please stop, we can’t breathe, our cheeks hurt, OMG STOP IT’S TOO FUNNY.”) From his starring roles in “Elf” and “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” to his epic run of non-stop hilarity on “Saturday Night Live,” Will has been reliably making us laugh hard enough to wet our pants since 1995, and his status as the first-ever MTV Movie Awards Comedic Genius is well-deserved…as is a change of pants.
The MTV Movie Awards air April 14 at 9 p.m. ET, and make sure to bookmark your browser for MovieAwards.MTV.com—once the nominees are announced on March 5, the polls are officially open for you, the internet, to choose your winners.
