Fans to Pick MTV Movie Awards Nominees

Film lovers will have a free hand in choosing the nominees of this year’s MTV Movie Awards. Fans can submit their nominees by logging on to movieawards.mtv.com beginning noon Monday until April 9.

Films or performances shown in 2009 can be nominated to any of the ten returning and three new categories. The much-talked-about WTF moment will return, while among the three new categories is the best global superstar, whose winner will be picked by fans worldwide. The other two new categories are related to action and horror movies. Voting for winners begins on May 11 and ends on June 5. However, voting for the most coveted award, Best Movie, will continue throughout the ceremonies.

The show will be broadcast live from the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles on June 6. MTV has yet to announce the full lineup of performers, but organizers promise a glittering show as more golden popcorn will be given away this year compared to past editions of the awards.
