If MTV Movie Awards nominees staged campaigns to win in the same way that performers do for the Oscars and Golden Globes, Seth Rogen would probably never win. When the star of "This Is The End" was asked his feelings about Will Ferrell receiving MTV's Comedic Genius Award — the first in MTV Movie Awards history — he didn't hesitate to let Josh Horowitz know what he thought of the ceremony's often unique categories.
"I actually think for all of the ridiculous names MTV gives its awards and all of the ridiculous people they present them to, he actually deserves that one," Rogen told Horowitz following an early screening of "This Is The End." "That's actually accurate."
In anticipation of the release of "This Is The End," which is due in theaters June 12, Rogen, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Evan Goldberg screened the film for fans and then spoke exclusively with MTV about the challenges — and the fun, of course — of making a movie about the end of the world. Rogen and Goldberg co-wrote and directed the film, which also stars Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Jonah Hill and a veritable who's who of young Hollywood comedic actors.
Thankfully, Rogen didn't scuttle his chances for a Movie Award at this year's ceremony -- since he wasn't nominated. But he and his "This Is The End" co-stars will take the stage Sunday to present the award for Best Shirtless Performance, a hotly contested category for which he chose Channing Tatum is his favorite. "It's crazy he looks like that," Rogen gushed.
Who do you want to win Best Shirtless Performance? Or Best Scared-As-S**t Performance? You can decide — there's still plenty of time to vote for your favorite nominees! Then, tune in Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. to see if your pick takes home the top prize.
