The network’s annual ceremony typically honors a mix of award-bait films and fan favorites of the past year. And this year is no different with Oscar winners, Birdman and Whiplash, nominated alongside Guardians of the Galaxy and The Fault in Our Stars. The latter two actually garnered seven nominations each. The two films tied with Neighbors for the most potential wins.
Other standouts include Gone Girl, which earned a lot of attention for Rosamund Pike’s turn as a scorned housewife Amy Elliott, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which is getting love for Jennifer Lawrence’s much loved musical moment.
Unlike the Golden Globes or the Oscars, fans get to decide who takes home the golden popcorn. Voting begins Mar. 4 and the winners will be announced on Sunday, Apr. 12 at 8 p.m. ET on MTV.
