2014 MTV Movie Awards predictions: Is this the year for 'Hunger Games?'
The MTV Movie Awards are coming your way on Sunday. The nominations this year, particularly for Movie of the Year, were interesting. I don't know that the wins will be, though, because frankly it seems like another young adult adaptation is poised to dominate after we got a bit of a breather from that sort of thing last year.
I have no idea what I'm doing here. Yeah, the public votes, but I imagine there's plenty of rigging going on, too. So against reason, I'll try to predict them anyway. Don't use them for your office pool or anything (if you happen to work in an office so chill as to have an MTV Movie Awards pool, that is). Just try to follow my logic below and feel free to tell me why I'm wrong in the comments section.
Ashley Benson, James Franco & Vanessa Hudgens, "Spring Breakers"
Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Scarlett Johansson, "Don Jon"
Jennifer Lawrence & Amy Adams, "American Hustle"
Emma Roberts, Jennifer Aniston & Will Poulter, "We're the Millers"
Shailene Woodley & Miles Teller, "The Spectacular Now"
Aww. The heart and soul of the MTV Movie Awards. And often pleased to honor a same sex smoocheroo, so chalk it up for the "Hustle" ladies.
Prediction: Jennifer Lawrence & Amy Adams, "American Hustle"
Best On-Screen Duo
Amy Adams & Christian Bale, "American Hustle"
Ice Cube & Kevin Hart, "Ride Along"
Vin Diesel & Paul Walker, "Fast & Furious 6"
Jonah Hill & Leonardo DiCaprio, "The Wolf of Wall Street"
Matthew McConaughey & Jared Leto, "Dallas Buyers Club"
Hmm. I could really see this going to any of the nominees. Even Ice Cube and Kevin Hart make a sick sort of sense. Diesel and Walker represents an opportunity to posthumously honor the latter. Hill and DiCaprio were amazing together. McConaughey and Leto won Oscars. Adams and Bale were the clearest "team" of the bunch. Flip a coin. I'll pick the most ridiculous of the lot and see what happens.
Prediction: Ice Cube & Kevin Hart, "Ride Along"
Best Scared-as-S**t Performance
Rose Byrne, "Insidious: Chapter 2"
Jessica Chastain, "Mama"
Vera Farmiga, "The Conjuring"
Ethan Hawke, "The Purge"
Brad Pitt, "World War Z"
We're still not quite sure what this category is all about. Change that name, guys. The expletive doesn't make it cool and nominating people like Suraj Sharma just makes the whole thing confusing. Anyway, surely this goes to the heart throb in the summer blockbuster, right?
Prediction: Brad Pitt, "World War Z"
