MTV Movie Award Nominees: Will Channing Tatum Dethrone Daniel Day-Lewis?

Magic MikeThe MTV Movie Award nominees have been announced, and as usual they seem to be exclusively catered to moviegoers with multiple personality disorder who like Lincoln during the day and Magic Mike at night. I’m pretty sure it was the plot of that show Do No Harm.

The MTV Movie Awards is probably the only award show that will nominate recent Oscar winners while also devoting an entire category to actors who are good at being “scared as shit.” It’s probably also the only award show that would give seven nominations to that movie Ted after Seth MacFarlane became the most offensive human being to ever say or do anything offensive in the history of offensive things as host of the Academy Awards. The nominations must have been decided before the Oscars aired, however, because, had they seen the ceremony at the time, they would have never nominated that sexist, boob-joke-making MacFarlane in the totally respectful-to-men Best Shirtless Performance category.

Show host Rebel Wilson is nominated in three categories, as she should be, but the tightest race is for Best Actor. That Oscar-winner Daniel Day-Lewis (He played some president in Lincoln, pretty sure it was Eisenhower) will face off against Channing Tatum for Magic Mike. And I’m pretty sure Channing Tatum is going to dethrone that greedy Daniel Day-Lewis. I mean, Day-Lewis never even showed his presidential abs in that movie. How can we be expected to give him an award?

Also, where do I inquire about the nominees for Best Sound? The Malfoy family will most certainly win again.

Check out the full list of nominees below, and be sure to mark down the show’s air date, April 14, 2013.

      I dunno Jill. Daniel Day-Lewis has a pretty strong following among the MTV crowd. When they’re not rewatching Twilight, they’re memorizing all the lines from Last of the Mohicans

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      I wonder how much money it would take for Daniel Day-Lewis to appear in the Magic Mike sequel, and if the three of us would be able to rustle it up.

      • Jenni

        I would guess $0. D D-L does it all for the craft. Money’s nothing but a nuisance to him.

      • jenley2013

        I wonder how much money it’ll take to get DDL to show up to this thing.

    • jenley2013

      I just can’t, I laugh out loud for minutes, whenever I see Channing Tatum and Daniel Day Lewis in the same sentence.

      That being said, if SLP don’t win everything I will cry. Bradlifer need to reenact that kiss live.

      • Jill O’Rourke

        Do you ever think Channing Tatum is just Daniel Day-Lewis playing a character? It’s totally possible.

      • jenley2013

        If it is, Daniel’s doing a brilliant job.

    • jenver

      OMG! No Twilight Best Kiss?? I’m heading over to MSN to see if there have been reports of mass suicides of hysterical women, or acts of domestic terrorism against the MTV studio.

      Rebel Wilson couldn’t be more perfect to host this year’s MTV Movie Awards! Honestly, I haven’t seen many of the movies that were nominated, but I’ll be watching the awards anyway. I’ve heard from some of the guys I work with at DISH that Ted was funny. I didn’t want to pay to see a movie about a teddy bear in theaters, so I added it to my Blockbuster @Home queue that I have through DISH. It’s the best way for me to watch movies since it costs me next to nothing, and movie tickets are so expensive these days.
