10 Categories That The MTV Movie Awards Forgot

10 Categories That The MTV Movie Awards Forgot

By Molly Horan

This Sunday, the MTV Movie Awards will air and pose important questions  like, "How did Russell Brand squeeze into those skin-tight leather pants? And how is he going to get them off?" The Awards are a time to honor movies, actors, and actresses for standing out in ways other award ceremonies are just too snobby to recognize, like Best On-Screen Kiss and Best On-Screen Dirtbag. Still, there are certain categories that even the Movie Awards fails to acknowledge. Props must be given where they're deserved.

Best Use of Nostalgia: Winnie the Pooh
Yes, The Muppets was an incredible blast from the past, but there's something to be said for old-school childhood classic without the hint of a reboot.

Most Likely to Reduce You To a Mass of Snot and Tears: 50/50
For some strange reason, people keep offering Joseph Gordon Levitt roles that give hardly any screen time to his heart-stopping smile. Ponder that while you sob.

Most Likely to Make You Regret Not Sticking With Dance ClassFootloose
Wear those vintage cowboy boots all you want, your dance moves will won't even come close to Ariel and Ren's.

Most Valuable "In spite of" Actor: Zac Efron in New Year's Eve
In spite of the bad reviews, in spite of the uninspired trailer, in spite of the parade of internet parodies, New Year's Eve had Zac Efron, so they got your $13.

Breakaway Performance: Daniel Radcliffe in The Woman in Black
He'll always be Harry Potter to most of us, but in this super creepy role he proved he can handle the lead in a horror movie too.

Best On-Screen BFFs: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows II
The last installment in the Harry Potter film series got a lot of love from this year's list of nominees (as it should), but we've just got to give a shout-out to this year's best besties. We love you guys. GRYFFINDOR FOREVER!

Cutest Four-Legged Co-Star: Uggie in The Artist
Still crossing our fingers for The Artist 2, featuring only this adorable Jack Russell Terrier cocking his head at the all the craziness in the world

Best Use of A Movie Allusion: The Dirty Dancing Lift Thing in Crazy, Stupid Love
Honestly, Mr. Gosling, you had me at your abs, but referencing an 80's classic didn't hurt.

Best Line From A Movie: "You love horses. I don't trust them. Their shoes are permanent. Who makes that kind of a commitment to a shoe?" from Arthur
A category from last year's awards, it needs to be resurrected if only to acknowledge this excellent piece of screenwriting.

Best Male Vocal Performance: Justin Timberlake in Friends With Benefits
He hasn't put out a new record in a while, but taking pity on us Justin sang a little "Closing Time," and even more awesome, some Kris Kross.
