All week we've been teasing you with clips of this year's MTV Movie Awards nominees in action. You've seen kisses, you've seen newbies come into their own and you've seen some of your favorite females at their very best. Today we're taking it a step further. Yep, no more favorite parts or people in movies. Nope, today we've got our hands on clips for the nominees for the big one: Best Movie.
And the nominees have it all: comedy, action, drama—you name it. Actually, there's such a great mix of movies this year that the entire category could be pretty polarizing. Which one do you think deserves the top honor?
This one seems to be getting nods in pretty much every major category. There's the kiss between Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis. There's Natalie's stellar performance. Put that all together and you might just have the makings of a Best Movie winner.
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1"
Our favorite wizard-filled franchise is winding down and "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" showed us that the students of Hogwarts really are all grown up now. They're facing all the big, scary life things: death, romantic heartache, dark lord wizards out to kill you...
Leo, Joseph, Ellen—the star power alone was enough to whet our appetites for this one. Then we actually saw the movie and realized it didn't matter who was cast. "Inception" won all kinds of praise for its innovative story and awesome special effects. Is that what makes something the best movie of the year? We have to admit, JGL badassing it up in zero gravity is pretty fantastic.
The Social Network
Another Oscar contender, "The Social Network" gave us a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes birth of Facebook. Coming from the fab writing-directing team of Aaron Sorkin and David Fincher, the movie got lots of pre-release buzz and then, you know, it kind of lived up to it. Way to boil the excitement of the world's biggest start-up down into a movie, guys. We felt like we were there, being screwed over by Mark Zuckerberg ourselves.
"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse"
Ahh, and then, of course, there's "Eclipse." It just wouldn't be right if the newest "Twilight" installment wasn't included in the nominees. And this one was maybe the best yet. The love triangle between Bella, Edward and Jacob, the steamy (but freezing) mountaintop kiss between Bella and Jacob, the epic vampire battle. The flick just had so much to sink your teeth into.
The MTV Movie Awards air Sunday, June 5 at 9/8 C.
