"This year, for the first time ever, we entrusted you with the task of selecting the MTV Movie Awards nominees," MTV.com exclaims, "and...you did not disappoint!"
Twilight took the most nominations this year, including Best Picture, Best Breakthrough Performance (one for Robert Pattinson, one for Taylor Lautner), and Best Female Performance (Kristen Stewart), but in a surprise twist, the vampire baseball scene was somehow excluded from brand new category Best WTF Moment. Noms in that category went to Ben Stiller for sampling severed head in Tropic Thunder, Ayush Mahesh Khedekar for diving into doo-doo in Slumdog Millionaire, and Amy Poehler for peeing in the sink in Baby Mama.
Voting begins today in all categories on the MTV website here, and the winners will be announced at the live broadcast 9pm EST / 6pm PST on May 31. The show will be hosted by Andy Samberg.
How does a free digital copy of the band's entire catalog sound? That's the plan No Doubt rolled out earlier this week, when they offered fans purchasing the top-price-level tickets for their shows online a crack at the full musical monty.
There are some stipulations — like the deal only applies to tickets priced at $42.50 or more before extra fees, excluding lower price levels and lawn seats. But otherwise fans who sign up online when tickets go on sale on Saturday will get each and every digital song, beginning with the band's self-titled 1992 debut up through their 2003 The Singles 1992-2003 collection.

Ne-Yo is throwing in his 5 cents (inflation) regarding Chris Brown and Rihanna.
MTV.com caught up with Ne-Yo recently and he had this to say:
I saw the picture," he said solemnly. "That just really — that hurt me to my heart, man. Again, I still don't know what happened, 'cause I haven't had the opportunity to talk to Chris yet. But to take it to that level really hurt my heart. All I can say is, I'm praying for both of them. They're both in my prayers. I haven't had a chance to talk to Chris yet. I just wanna sit down and talk to that dude and just explain if he doesn't understand: 'That's not something that's excusable, bruh. You have to get a little smarter about whatever it is going on in your relationship. You have to get a little smarter about how you handle certain situations.' "
"I'm not going to crucify him," Ne-Yo said. "I'm not going to do that. That's still my homeboy at the end of the day. For it to go to that level was wrong. I won't say who was responsible. I won't pick no sides. I'm just saying it was wrong [that] it had to happen like that, and I'm praying for the both of them."
Ne-Yo is playing the PC version of this game and maybe it's for the best right now. I am praying for Rihanna now more than Chris Brown. No one said I had to be PC about this.-Dr.FB
