Jessica Alba is hosting the MTV movie awards this year. The event is this Saturday (June 3rd) and will be aired June 8th.
Alba is actually up for 3 nomination herself in the catagory Sexiest Performance which pits Jessica Alba (Sin City) against Beyonce Knowles (the Pink Panther), Ziya Zhang (Memoirs of a Geisha), Jessica Simpson (Dukes of Hazzard), and Rob Schnieder (Duece Bigalow: European Gigolo).
Her 2nd nomination is in the catagory of Best Hero for her role in the Fantastic 4 up against Christian Bale (Batman Begins), Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Ewan McGregor (Star Wars III), Kate Beckinsale (Underworld Evolution).
Her 3rd nomination is in the catagory Best on Screen Team which she shares with the other Fantastic Four Members...they are up against the teams of 40 Year Old Virgin, Dukes of Hazzard, Harry Potter, and Wedding Crashers.
Is there any precedent for an awards host to have 3 nominations???
This year Wedding Crashers and The 40Year Old Virgin lead the nominations with 5 nominations each.
Other catagories this year are:
Best Kiss (with controversial kiss by Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger nominated from Brokeback Mountain)
Best Frightened Performance (Who would think that Paris Hilton and Dakota Fanning might be nominated in the same catagory? There nominations are for House of Wax and War of the Worlds)
Best Fight (King Kong vs. The Planes & Obi-Won vs. Anikan Skywalker seem like the top contenders...or then again there's Mr. and Mrs. Smith?)
Best Performance (4 of the 6 got academy nominations: Reese Witherspoon, Jaoquin Pheonix, Terrance Howard, Jake Gyllenhaal...and MTV also recognizes Rachel McAdams for Red Eye and Steve Carrell for 40 Year Old Virgin...but of course, why didn't the academy recognize these 2 performances??)
Best Comedic Performance (Steve Carrell's nomination here reminds me of when animated films get nominated for best animated film and best film or when British films at the BAFTAs get nominations for Best Film and Best British film...doesn't this mean that Steve Carrell is a shoe in for this award?)
Best Villian (Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Cillian Murphy...these are some buzz names in the award circuit recently...good actors always get to play the villians.)
Best Breakthrough Performance (how could it be anyone but Nelly for the Longest Yard? It is the MTV awards)
Best Movie (it's a funny list: Batman Begins, King Kong, Sin City, Wedding Crashers, 40 Year Old Virgin...is it wierd that I hope Batman Begins wins?)
