Date: 4th May 2011

Harry Potter, Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Inception dominate MTV Movie Awards nominees


The nominees are in for the 20th annual 2011 MTV Movies Awards, and there's no surprise that mega-hits like 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse,' 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' and 'Inception' are up for multiple trophies. Those three films join 'Black Swan' and 'The Social Network' in the Best Movie category.

Among this year's typically non-traditional categories are awards for Best Scared as Sh*t Performance, and Best Jaw-dropping Moment.

Biggest Badass Star includes two kids (Jaden Smith, 'The Karate Kid' and Chloe Grace Moretz for 'Kick-Ass'), but no Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, or any cast member of 'The Expendables.'
