“Neighbors” & “Guardians” Earn Top Nods for 2015 MTV Movie Awards

The 2015 MTV Movie Awards are nearly here, which means it’s time for nominations.

It’s the only award show where Josh Hutcherson’s “Hunger Games – Catching Fire” performance could beat out Matthew McConaughey for “Dallas Buyers Club,” but that’s why we love it… unpredictability.

With four nods, “The Hunger Games” franchise is still a force to be reckoned with, along with seven nominations each for “The Fault in Our Stars,” "Neighbors" and “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
