Star Trek in Six MTV Movie Awards Categories

Just when you thought the award shows ended with the Oscars, we get a reminder that there is one more to go. The MTV Movie Awards has opened up voting for nominees through April 9th for your favorite movies and stars in many categories.

From these votes a short list of nominees will be determined which will open a final round of voting from May 11th to June 5th. The winners will be announced live on MTV on June 6th at 9PM EST. From what I can tell the list seems to be based on movies released between March 2009 to March 2010 (only way to explain Hot Tub Time Machine's inclusion). This year Star Trek has a chance in six categories, with multiple nominees in many of the categories.

Star Trek specific categories
Best Movie
Best Kiss - Spock & Uhura
Best Fight - Kirk & Sulu vs. Romulans or Kirk vs. Nero
Best Ass-Kicking Star - Chris Pine or Zoe Saldana
Best Breakout Male Star - Chris Pine or Zachary Quinto
Best Villain - Nero (Eric Bana)

Support Star Trek star
Best Female Performance - Zoe Saldana (Avatar)

To vote for Star Trek and other favorites, click here. The website does require you have or create an account and you can only make one choice per category so I guess some will have a hard choice to make.

  1. I would love Eric Bana to win Best Villain, but Christoph Waltz will be tought to beat.
