The MTV Movie Awards Add An 'Academy' Of Industry Voters

Filed under: TV NewsAwardzTwilightOscars

MTV Movie Awards changes voting process

The MTV Movie Awards are getting a MAJOR makeover this year! Not only are producers dropping categories and adding new ones, they have implemented a new voting system with an "academy" of Hollywood professionals.

Similar to the Oscars, awards will now be handed out based on performance and not popularity. Does that mean all of the big blockbusters like Twilight won't win anything?

Eh, probably not. The fans still have a big say and big blockbusters like Twilight have seriously devoted fans (like us. LOLz!).

Still, MTV president Stephen Friedman said the purpose of the change is to "make sure some of the unexpected, smaller, quirkier films have a chance."

So what we're hearing is…Drive has a chance!

In case you're wondering, fan voting begins May 1 right here. Take a peek at the five new categories you'll be voting for and the five that got cut … AFTER THE JUMP!

Oh no!

Looks like some members of the Academy got their panties in a twist this past weekend when trying to view The Hunger Games!

It seems that the VIPs were a bit pissed off at the fact that Lionsgate offered no Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences members-only screenings for the film!!

Boo hoo! They had to watch the movie in theaters with the rest of us! AND pay!

Filed under: Fashion SmashionOscars

The start of things to come? We shall see!

The Artist just won it's first Oscar of the night for Best Costume Design.

In a film with no dialogue, how it looked was just so important. We're glad the Academy recognized that.

Congrats!!!

Filed under: InspirationEducational

Your Reaction?

Graceann Rumer is a hero!!

She got her drivers license just two-weeks ago, and already used her skill to save a bus-load of her fellow students. (What did you do Tuesday?)

When her bus driver collapsed from a heart attack the 17-year-old senior at Calvary Christian Academy in Northeast Philadelphia garbed the wheel, maneuvered through a busy intersection and moved the bus to the side of the road.

Watch the video (above) to see how she pulled it off!
