MTV Movie Awards: American Hustle, Wolf Of Wall Street Lead Nominations With 8 Apiece

MTV announced the nominees for its 2014 Movie awards, and “American Hustle” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” are the forerunners with eight nominations apiece.

The ‘Movie of the Year’ category is shared with “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “12 Years a Slave,” and “The Hobbit” Desolation of Smaug.”

As always, there are categories you will never find at the traditional awards ceremonies like ‘Best Kiss’ or ‘Best Scared-as-S**t-Performance’, and plenty of films like “World War Z” or “Fruitvale” that for whatever reason didn’t make the cut at the Oscars or the Golden Globes.

The public picks the winner in each category and you can vote on MTV’s website.

The MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Conan O’Brien, will air live April 13 on MTV.
