We love The Hunger Games, and no doubt you do too – but what are the chances that it will take home a bunch of awards at this year’s MTV Movie Awards?
Next Movie decided to take a look at the nine categories The Hunger Games has been nominated in and made some predictions about whether they’ll take home the award.
You can check out the article here, but in the meantime, here’s what they say about the top three nominations:
Movie of the Year
“The Hunger Games” is something of a freshman franchise at the moment, and it’s sharing this major category with a hip senior classman (“Harry Potter”) and a very popular junior (“Breaking Dawn – Part 1″). Even putting aside the massively successful “The Help” and “Bridesmaids” which are also nominated, the “Harry Potter” and “Twilight” fanbases will be tough to beat, especially since many “Hunger Games” fans stem from one or both of those fan groups and may still have a little click loyalty for them. There’s a chance ”The Hunger Games” could take this prize home, but it may be a little slim.
Our Bet: Lose
Best Female Performance
Jennifer Lawrence has this category in the bag. While Kristen Wiig, Emma Stone and Rooney Mara also present some fresh blood for the nomination list and Emma Watson’s got a plethora of “Harry Potter” fans at her flanks, J.Law is the literal face of the newest Big Thing in Young Hollywood and almost everyone can agree her performance merits the landslide victory here.
Our Bet: Win
Best Male Performance
While Josh Hutcherson might’ve won over (most of) “The Hunger Games” faithful with his touching performance as Peeta Mellark, his fellow competitors in this battle are fierce. The “Harry Potter” folks will no doubt be vetting the series’ long-lived lead Daniel Radcliffe for a final win, and both Ryan Gosling and Channing Tatum have nudged into heartthrob status over the past few years. Hutcherson could totally nab the victory and probably will, but we predict it’ll be by a very close margin.
Our Bet: Win
As for the other nominations:
Next Movie says this one could go either way with Liam Hemsworth up for his role as Gale.
They’re predicting a win for The Hunger Games with The “Harry Potter” gang worthy competitors.
They also predict a win for Katniss. This one all comes down to a Twitter vote, so fans need to get on board and use the hashtag #votekatniss if they want to see her take out this award.
This one, they say, is too close to call. The Hunger Games is nominated for the final showdown with Cato at the end of the Games.
Next Movie says it’s not going to hap happen, predicting that it’s in the bag for Twilight.
