I don’t usually watch the MTV Movie Awards. It’s not like I think I’m too good for it; I love these MTV train wrecks and was really upset when I realized I had missed the most recent VMAs and had to watch it online. But the Movie Awards show just isn’t usually on my radar.
This time around, though, Aziz Ansari is hosting, and since I am both a fan and a Twitter follower of his, I’ve been looking forward to this. As I was setting it up on the DVR it occurred to me that I should compete with Johanna in a winner-picking competition like we’ve done in the past with the Oscars, Grammys, and Golden Globes. I went looking for a ballot online, but shockingly was unable to find one. I guess not as many people participate in office pools for the MTV Movie Awards as they do for some of the other awards shows. I decided to make my own ballot, so I went to the MTV site and looked up the categories. And that’s when I really got excited about this.
Best WTF Moment. Biggest Badass Star. Best Scared-As-S**t Performance (MTV’s asterisks, not mine). Plus, I’m pretty sure that the winners were all determined by online polls. So, to correctly pick winners, I have to put myself in the mindset of a fifteen-year-old girl. I haven’t even heard of some of these movies, let alone seen them. This is going to be epic.
Just a warning, my usual strategy of taking photos of my actual television for these live events works out even worse when the show is not in HD. And Time Warner Cable down here does not have MTVHD.
Let’s get started. As always, categories and winners in bold.
