The nominations for the 2008 MTV Movie Awards were announced last night and, as can usually be expected from the tongue-in-cheek ceremony, you won’t find much overlap with the Oscars.
Last summer’s surprise hit comedy, Superbad, which was somehow overlooked by Academy voters in March, leads the class of 2008 with five total nominations, including Best Movie and Best Comedic Performance for its star Jonah Hill. Co-stars Michael Cera and Christopher Mintz-Plasse join Jonah as nominees in the Breakthrough Performance category.
Additionally, Cera is nominated in the Best Male Performance category for his role in Juno. He’s joined in that category by Knocked Up‘s Seth Rogen, the co-writer on Superbad.
And while this may be the only chance for National Treasure: Book of Secrets to score a nationally televised award, the MTV Movie Awards will allow Javier Bardem the opportunity to add yet another trophy to his case for his role as the creepy killer in No Country for Old Men.
