With only a month or so to go until the 2011 MTV Movie Awards – the nominee list has just been revealed and we’re pleased to see a superhero-worthy number of nominations for films, actors and notable moments from this years most successful page-to-screen adaptations.
MTV’s Rick Marshall gives us the rundown on the comic stars who’ve made a big impact on the big screen this year ……
In the Best Breakout Star category, it’s Spider-Man vs. Hit-Girl as “The Social Network” actor Andrew Garfield vies against Chloe Moretz, the ass-kicking, pre-teen dynamo of “Kick-Ass.” Also nominated is Jay Chou, who also kicked a significant amount of ass as Kato in “The Green Hornet.”
The Best Villain category features the comics-friendly duo of Christoph Waltz in “The Green Hornet” and Mickey Rourke in “Iron Man 2.” We’re not sure why none of the Evil Exes from “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World” made the cut here, but hey, we don’t make the rules.
It feels like another “Scott Pilgrim” snub here, but the only comic book movie to get a nod in the Best Fight category was “Kick-Ass” — specifically, the very-worthy brawl between Chloë Moretz and Mark Strong.
We’re starting to see a pattern here, as “Kick-Ass” and “Iron Man 2” once again get the only nods in the Biggest Badass Star category. This time, it’s Chloë Moretz in “Kick-Ass” squaring off against Robert Downey Jr. in “Iron Man 2.” The good news in this category? There aren’t any nominees from the “Twilight” movies! We’ve got a chance, comic book movie fans!
