‘Django’, Jamie Foxx & Quvenzhané Wallis Nominated for MTV Movie Awards

UK premiere of 'Django Unchained'

Sure the Oscars have come and gone, but awards season ain’t over yet! The 2013 MTV Movie Awards are slated for April 14 and they just announced the big screen nominees.

Two Best Picture runners-up and a raunchy comedy about a talking toy lead the MTV Movie Award nominations, which were announced live on the network Tuesday. Both Django Unchained and Ted scored big with seven nominations apiece; Silver Linings Playbook also did well, earning six nominations. Unsurprisingly, almost all of them had something to do with newly-crowned Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence — the outspoken starlet scored five nods altogether, including one for her performance in the horror film House at the End of the Street.

We can’t wait to see who wins in the category of Best WTF Moment: Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson, “Candieland Gets Smoked” in Django Unchained or Denzel Washington – “Final Descent” in Flight.

The awards will be handed out live on April 14. Check out the full list of nominees below — and don’t forget to vote for your favorites at MovieAwards.MTV.com.

  1. […] On Django Unchained … It was amazing. People don’t understand. Yes, you could make it very dramatic. But no one would go because we know how painful the narrative of slavery is. It’s not making fun of slavery; it’s not mocking it. Because if it was, Kerry [Washington] wouldn’t have done it. Jamie [Foxx] wouldn’t have done it. Quentin wouldn’t have done it, and neither would [producer] Reggie Hudlin. They know what they were trying to say within the context of the most brutal and inhumane oppression in U.S. history. And here’s a Black man coming to save his wife and he doesn’t get lynched. I’m sure there were a few more Djangos back then, but their narrative hasn’t been heralded. Not everyone was a victim. I hailed the fact that at least it had a Black hero in it who met slavery head-on to save his wife. I’m sure it’s the voice of someone, somewhere. And maybe many. […]
