Pirates of the Caribbean leads MTV movie nominations



Story by: Jack Foley

PIRATES of the Caribbean could well sail off with a clutch of MTV Movie Awards, now that the annual list of nominees has been announced ahead of the June ceremony.

The surprise Summer blockbuster hit has been nominated for a total of six awards, including best film, best male (Johnny Depp) and best villain, for Geoffrey Rush.

Its main Oscar rival, however, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, has only been nominated in two categories, for best film and best action sequence.

The romantic comedy, 50 First Dates, and blockbuster, X-Men 2, have four nominations each.

50 First Dates is the only movie to have both leading characters - Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore - nominated in the best male and best female acting categories.

While other leading actresses include Uma Thurman for Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill: Volume 1, Oscar-winner, Charlize Theron, for Monster, and Halle Berry, for Gothika, and Queen Latifah, for Bringing Down The House.

In the best actor category, Depp will take on Tom Cruise, for The Last Samurai, as well as Bill Murray, for Lost in Translation, Jim Caviezel, for The Passion of the Christ, and Sandler.

The awards, which reflect audience choice more than critical acclaim, will be handed out on June 5, in Los Angeles.
