article image'Ted' and 'Django Unchained' lead MTV Movie Awards nominations

By Tim O'Brien     Mar 6, 2013 in Entertainment
With apologies to Monty Python, "Now for something completely different." In this case, it is the MTV Movie Awards, which were announced on March 6.
But, if one thinks the award season is stuffy, the MTV Movie Awards are usually not that way. Plus, the top movies are more like a list culled from the top-grossing films. As for last year, that does mean some of those Oscar-nominated films. As mentioned in reports here, the recent Oscars had six films over $100 million going in with one more close.
With the MTV top category, they put in the top film of 2012, too. That's right, "The Avengers" is one of their top films of the past year but so is another superhero flick, "The Dark Knight Rises." The major curve is throwing a few bones and maybe a win to "Ted." The recent Oscar host, Seth MacFarlane, gets a nod here for his film, which is the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all-time.
They also throw in some odd categories like shirtless, kiss and villain. The shirtless one is a new entry this year. It was "Ted" and "Django Unchained" which nabbed the most nominations with seven each.
The shows airs on MTV April 14.
