What's Hot On TV Tonight – MTV Movie Awards

MTV_MOVIE_AWARDS_Logo_low-res.jpg.jpeg A few months past the other award shows, the MTV Movie Awards are always fun to watch, as they include the movies we actually do watch. Too many times I look at the movies nominated for best film and know that not even did I not see it, but it didn’t even have a wide release. The MTV Movie Awards are much different and award fun things like Best Kiss and Best WTF Moment. We’ll also get the first glimpses of the new Harry Potter film as well as the new Transformers film.
