Today MTV announced they will be debuting their first ever live social voting category. The new category announced is for Best Hero, and our very own Girl on Fire Katniss Everdeen has been nominated! Oh and have we mentioned that the Hunger Games leads the pack with the most nominations? Pretty AWESOME we know!
Fans of onscreen heroics should get their fingertips ready to tear up Twitter because that’s where they’ll be voting for their favorite onscreen do-gooder in the new category of Best Hero for the 2012 MTV Movie Awards.
Beginning Tuesday (May 29) and right on through to the live show on June 3, fans can vote and track the nominees for Best Hero, presented by Sprint, via Twitter using hashtags associated with the nominees. Is your favorite hero a contender?
Check out the nominees:
»Harry Potter, “Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, Part 2 (#votepotter)
»Katniss Everdeen, “The Hunger Games” (#votekatniss)
»Thor, “Thor” (#votethor)
»Captain America, “Captain America” (#votecaptain)
»Jenko, “21 Jump Street” (#votejenko)
The new nods for “Harry Potter,” “The Hunger Games” and “21 Jump Street” add to those films’ already hefty tallies. And the nomination for Katniss of “The Hunger Games,” played by Best Female Performancenominee Jennifer Lawrence, pushes that film ahead of “Bridesmaids” to become the most-nominated film this year with nine nominations. The bump gives “Deathly Hallows, Part 2″ seven different chances to walk away with the Golden Popcorn (and remember, the franchise still unbelievably has never scored the coveted Best Movie prize despite several nominations over the years).
