Slum kids vs. vampires? This is a battle we have to see.

The nominations are in for the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, and it looks like Twilight and Slumdog Millionaire will dominate the proceedings.

The MTV audience — who picked the contenders for the first time this year — have nominated RPattz and co. and the Slumdog folks for six awards each.

The smash hits will be going head-to-head for best movie, best breakthrough male performance (Dev Patel vs. Robert Pattinson), best kiss (Dev Patel and Freida Pinto vs. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart) and in a new category, best song from a movie ("Jai Ho" from Slumdog vs. "Decode" from Twilight).

Another new award for this year’s ceremony, hosted by Saturday Night Live‘s Andy Samberg, is the WTF moment for scenes like the naked break up in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, or Amy Poehler peeing in a sink in Baby Mama.
