MTV Movie Awards ready to rock Hollywood Sunday
Andy Samberg ready to host a 'Twilight' filled affair
Just how far can MTV jam "Twilight" down viewers throats on Sunday night during the MTV Movie Awards? With two days to go, the network is probably still figuring out more even ways to hype the picture that dominated the show's nominations this year.
Up for 7 nods including Best Movie and Best Kiss (slam dunk winner), "Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are all set to make appearances during the show. Additionally, the trio will introduce the new teaser trailer for the movie's upcoming sequel, "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," which will be available online shortly after on MySpace and here on HitFix. And hey, the HitFix team are just as big fans of the vampire franchise as you can get, but we're hoping MTV remembers to show the love to some flicks like "The Dark Knight," "Slumdog Millionaire" and "Iron Man" that are also worthy hyping.
Being that it's MTV, however, the show will also feature musical performances by Eminem (perfect since he just loves Hollywood) and Kings of Leon. Your host is "Saturday Night Live's" Andy Samberg, so don't be surprised if The Lonely Island shows up to perform one of their hits live (I'm gunning for the profane laced "I'm on a Boat" featuring T-Pain).
And as it's summer movie season, "New Moon" isn't the only movie that's going to get hyped. "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" will debut a new clip during the show and presenters selling their upcoming flicks include Sacha Baron Cohen as "Bruno," Chris Pine ("Star Trek"), "Transformers" stars Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, "G.I. Joe's" Channing Tatum, "The Hangover's " Bradley Cooper, "Land of the Lost's" Will Ferrell, "The Proposal's" Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Radcliffe and the cast of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," and many more. It's an impressive roster of stars that you can argue even the Oscars and Golden Globes can't match (of course, those shows don't have categories such as Best Fight or Best WTF Moment either).
Who will actually win? (Like it matters.) This awards prognosticator made his picks weeks ago. Check out all the potential winners and nominees here.

The MTV Movie Awards air on MTV this Sunday at 9 PM. Will you be watching?
