Best and Worst of the 2013 MTV Movie Awards
What would the first post-'Twilight' MMA bring?
Worst: Nominees not showing up
Every pseudo awards show has problems getting its nominees to show up, but this year the MTV Movie Awards looked entirely predictable by who was just sitting in the room. Some of the surprise absentees included Jennifer Lawrence (who seemingly was a "no show" depending who you ask), Tom Hardy, Anna Kendrick, Ezra Miller, Seth McFarlane, Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum. Perhaps if MTV didn't make the entire show seem like it was bought by upcoming movies (see later on in this piece) actors might take it more seriously and show up. But until MTV cares - and after this year they might - don't expect a star-filled affair next time around.
