‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ tops MTV Movie Awards nominations

LOS ANGELES (AP) — And you thought Hollywood’s award season was over.

A teenage tearjerker, a foul-mouthed coed comedy and a raucous space adventure featuring a talking tree lead the nominees for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, airing live on April 12 from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

MTV announced Wednesday that “The Fault in Our Stars,” ”Neighbors,” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” all have seven shots at winning a golden popcorn trophy at the annual awards ceremony, which in recent years has also become a platform for the studios to promote their big summer releases.

“22 Jump Street” and “Whiplash” followed with five nods each in a slate that includes movies as diverse as “American Sniper,” ”Gone Girl,” and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay_Part 1.”

Comedian Amy Schumer will host the irreverent show, which hands out prizes such as best villain, best WTF moment, best kiss, and best shirtless performance.

Fans can vote online for their favorites.
