Here Are The 2013 MTV Movie Award Nominees If Anyone Even Cares

Every year, when the MTV Movie Awards nominations are announced, I go on some toothless rant about how I cannot even understand why we are still doing these, since they are completely meaningless and directed at an indeterminate audience, and this year is no different. If children are too busy SEXTing on their Samsung Galaxy III’s to be bothered to even go to the movies in the first place, surely they are not tuning into appointment-viewing television to see who won BEST MILF. And while it was always ridiculous that Best Kiss and Best Fight were actual PRIZES that someone could WIN on NATIONAL TELEVISION, it was with the addition of Best WTF Moment and Best Shirtless Performance (REAL CATEGORIES OF PRESTIGIOUS AWARD) that the MTV Movie Awards truly became an irrelevant parade of intellectually bankrupt garbage. Because the weird thing about these silly categories is that they are not even FUN. Do you know what I mean? BEST SHIRTLESS PERFORMANCE is not even FUN. It’s not really tongue-in-cheek or winking, it’s just the straight-forward continued hyper-sexualization of youth culture to a Skrillex beat. If/when Channing Tatum wins, he is going to have to GIVE A SPEECH ABOUT IT. And people will CHEER.

But above and beyond all of that, this year in particular the MTV Movie Awards has proven itself to be a worthless tribute to the soulless demands of the capitalist system if it can look the youth of America in the eye and say to them, Yes, we believe that Ted is a valid nominee for MOVIE OF THE YEAR. Unacceptable. I am just glad that Hugo Chavez didn’t live long enough to see this.
