2008 MTV Movie Award Nominations

Superbad, Transformers Lead the 2008 MTV Movie Award Nominations

This year's MTV Movie Awards, airing live June 1, will mark the second time hosting for Mike Myers who said in a statement, "Hosting the MTV Movie Awards is like a party, but without having to do beer runs in your mom's minivan." He then added, "We do beer runs in Will Smith's four-story motor home."

Today we have a full list of the nominated movies vying for the Golden Popcorn statues at this year's "party." Awesomely, Michael Cera is all over this list, for both Superbad and Juno. Shia LaBeouf is also well-represented, as is Amy Adams. Superbad leads several nominations, with a bunch of Juno, Enchanted and Transformers rounding out the rest.

I was slightly surprised to see some titles included in the list, like No Country for Old Men, American Gangster and Sex and the City: The Movie. Maybe I'm not too clear on who the audience is for MTV. . .Can they even get into these movies?

Anyway, now that the nominations have been announced, you can cast your votes for which movies should win over on the MTV Movie Awards site. To check out a full list of nominees,

It's gonna be boring! Who's going to perform. Mariah was AMAZING three years ago on the show. They should bring her back!

Yeah my first thought was "Mike Myers? What is this, 1998?"

I used to love the MTV Movie Awards so much--for one reason: the way the edited the nominees and added music. It was genius, but it seems like they gave up on that.

I have pretty much given up on expecting anything worth watching from MTV. I remember looking forward to these award shows, but the past few years they have been so lame.
