''Superbad'' leads MTV Movie Awards noms

(FROM REUTERS) — Superbad is the leading nominee at the 17th annual MTV Movie Awards, up for five awards in the categories Best Movie, Best Male Performance (Michael Cera and Jonah Hill), and Best Breakthrough Performance (the two leads as well as ”McLovin,” Christopher Mintz-Plasse). Juno follows close behind, with four nominations. Among the other nominees: Transformers, I Am Legend, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, and National Treasure: Book of Secrets. The network also unveiled a new category: Best Summer Movie So Far, with Iron Man, Sex and the City, Speed Racer, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull nominated. The show, which prides itself on its ”fun” vibe, its nontraditional awards-ceremony categories, and its celebration of blockbusters, will be hosted by Mike Myers, and will air June 1. (Reuters)
