Maybe you’ve heard about families cutting back this summer. Forgoing vacations for staycations — finding ways to escape on the cheap without leaving home. Instead of sampling exotic flavors at a trendy new restaurants, go grocery shopping and buy off brands to confuse your taste buds. Instead of roughing it in the wilds of the Rocky Mountains, go back to basics by neglecting to pay your utility bills for a month or two! In that spirit, yeah, it’s too bad we couldn’t go to Cannes. But lookie here, kids, the MTV Movie Awards are Sunday night!
I know, I know. If this is beneath your dignity, just skip it and go watch the clips from The White Ribbon again. The MTV Movie Awards don’t front. They know they’re silly and superficial. The fans get a warm feeling from showing their appreciation, and the stars get a tingle from their shameless self-promotion. There’s a certain purity to the lack of pretension.
Vote here and find 4 more categories after the cut. We’ll cover the acting nominees tomorrow. Write in votes are welcome, and even better if you share them in the comments. Try to have fun.
