    2012 MTV Movie Awards

    http://popwatch.ew.com/2012/04/25/mt...ew-categories/

    It may not be Oscar, but the Golden Popcorn is undergoing quite the makeover when the MTV Movie Awards airs a refurbished version of its annual awards show in Los Angeles in June.

    Among the changes announced today are five new categories — including Best Music, Best On-Screen Transformation and the soon-to-be-classic Best On-Screen Dirt Bag — as well as a new system of nominations based on an anonymous panel of actors, producers, industry folks and “members of the MTV audience,” says a press release. The network hopes that the new Academy, as it’s dubbing it, will add some credibility to the show and allow for a broader array of nominees that don’t necessarily represent the biggest summer blockbusters (as has been the raison d’être for the entire tween celebration in the past). Reflecting the greater selection of talent, a panel of directors will also crown the winner of a new Breakthrough Performance award.

    Will that mean we’re going to see less Twilight and Harry Potter and more Winter’s Bone and Monsieur Lazhar? Probably not, but the new voting committee — which will be kept anonymous — should shake up the nominees just enough to reinvigorate the program and add some depth to the choices fans will face when voting opens to the public on May 1. Yes, you’ll still have the autonomy to pick between vampires and tributes, but MTV hopes that peppering in a little Meryl will make your choice a little more difficult.

    Am I the only one who was pretty much calculating the winners based on the "IQ" of the MTV audience?

    If you're really wondering about who will win, then you've already lost.
