Django and Ted are MTV Movie Awards favourites
Django Unchained and Ted are both nominated in seven categories each at this year’s MTV Movie Awards, which will be hosted by comedienne Rebel Wilson.
Funny woman Rebel Wilson, who will also serve as host at this year’s celebrations, announced the nominees for the ceremony on Tuesday.
Django, a Quentin Tarantino film set in the American South during 19th century slavery, and Ted, a Seth MacFarlane comedy about a man’s relationship with a talking teddy bear, both clenched seven nominations each.
Django and Ted are both competing for the Movie of the Year prize.
Silver Linings Playbook which stars Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence and Academy Award-nominee Bradley Cooper was also very successful, picking up six nods in a number of categories. Both Bradley and Jennifer impressed judges as they have been acknowledged for Best Male and Female Performance.
Actress Emma Watson is elated about this year’s event.
"I am so excited to have been nominated for three MTV Movie Awards for Perks of Being a Wallflower!" Emma gushed in a statement to Us Weekly magazine.
"I love the show and I love this movie! I'm so thrilled."
