MTV Movie Awards (AKA Pointless, Useless, Meaningless Movie Awards) Nominees Announced

I swore to myself that this year I wasn’t going to write anything about the MTV Movie Awards, the most useless and meaningless “awards” show of the year. It’s empty populist drivel. But when I read the nominee list, it was SO BAD I couldn’t help but post it.
