    The MTV Movie Award Nominees have been announced. Twilight and Slumdog Millionaire lead the nominations, with six a piece. Both were nominated for Best Movie.

    Other films nominated for the golden popcorn statuette include Iron Man, The Dark Knight, and High School Musical 3: Senior Year. The awards ceremony intentionally caters to MTV's younger demographic.

    One of the show's most popular awards is Best Kiss, with some of this year's nominees including real-life sweeties Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens for HSM, forbidden lovers Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson for Twilight, Milk's Sean Penn and James Franco, and Slumdog's Dev Patel and Freida Pinto.

    Votes can be cast online at MTV's website through May 27 for all categories except Best Movie. MTV allows voting for that category to remain open until May 31, when the show will air live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California. Andy Samberg is hosting.
