MTV Movie Awards: Betty White a potential nominee

Posted on


Image Credit: Sam Emerson; Rob McEwan MTV is gearing up for its annual Movie Awards (June 6) by having fans help determine the nominees through online voting in 13 categories through April 9. You’ve got your insane number of potential nominations for the Twilight cast and Channing Tatum. (I would be okay with him and Amanda Seyfried taking Best Kiss for Dear John — IF Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto don’t win it. Their Star Trek kiss is simply hotter on a level that’s deeper than any other choice.) But you’ve also got the chance for two Betty White nods. She’s among the featured picks for Best WTF Moment (for groping Sandra Bullock in The Proposal) and Best Comedic Performance (for her role as Ryan Reynolds’ grandmother). I think there are bigger WTF moments, so I say we focus our voting efforts in the latter category. Think about the funny video bit MTV could do with her and her fellow nominees — which will, no doubt, include Hot Tub Time Machine‘s Rob Corddry and multiple gents from The Hangover.

P.S. Because I saw It’s Complicated and can tell you that no one else in that theater was close to the MTV Movie Awards demo, allow me to also advocate for John Krasinski in that category. As the future son-in-law of Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin’s characters who discovers their affair, he steals that film.
