2012 MTV Movie Awards: Categories out, fun. to perform


Of all the award shows, the MTV Movie Award Show is the one we care about the most. Why? It’s a playful show that is super entertaining and doesn’t take itself too seriously.

MTV US has just announced the first performance lined up for this years show: fun! The show has also added five new award categories including Best Music, Best On-Screen Transformation, Best Gut-Wrenching Performance, Best Cast, Best On-Screen Dirt Bag and Best Breakthrough Performance (this one will be awarded solely by a panel of directors.)

The other seven categories are as follows:
- Movie of the Year
- Best Female Performance
- Best Male Performance
- Breakthrough Performance
- Best Comedic Performance
- Best Kiss
- Best Fight

Nominees will be announced Tuesday, May 1st and voting will open on Saturday, June 2nd through MA.MTV.com. Just like past years, the voting for Movie of the Year will be ongoing throughout the show, which will air live in Canada on MTV on Sunday, June 3 at 9pm ET!

We’re just going to assume that THE HUNGER GAMES will be in every category to some degree…
