Surely hyped up for #TheWolfofWallStreet on Twitpic
MTV announced the nominees for the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, and the variety of films was quite interesting. The MTV Movie Awards is no Oscars, but this year MTV has included critically acclaimed films along with teen fan favorites.

According to Just Jared, The Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle received the most nominations with eight total for each. Following closely behind is The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, with seven nominations.

The show will give out the golden popcorn awards on April 13 with Conan O’Brien providing a few laughs as the host. Here is the complete list of the nominees via the Los Angeles Times and our winner predictions.

MOVIE OF THE YEAR
12 Years a Slave
American Hustle
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
The Wolf of Wall Street

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
12 Years a Slave may have swept the awards season, but for the MTV audience we are going with The Hunger Games.

FEMALE PERFORMANCE
Amy Adams -- American Hustle
Jennifer Aniston -- We're the Millers
Sandra Bullock -- Gravity
Jennifer Lawrence -- The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Lupita Nyong'o -- 12 Years a Slave

Lupita Nyong’o
Break out star Lupita Nyong’o has probably been the most talked about actress this awards season for both her riveting performance in 12 Years a Slave and her keen fashion sense. She is a fan favorite and it would be almost blasphemy if MTV didn’t give her the golden popcorn.

MALE PERFORMANCE
Bradley Cooper -- American Hustle
Leonardo DiCaprio -- The Wolf of Wall Street
Chiwetel Ejiofor -- 12 Years a Slave
Josh Hutcherson -- The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Matthew McConaughey -- Dallas Buyers Club

Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio has a total of six individual nominations for this year's MTV Movie Awards. We are betting that he will take home the popcorn in this category. The Oscars snubbed him yet again, and fans across the board always want Leo to win.

BREAKTHROUGH PERFORMANCE
Liam James -- The Way Way Back
Michael B. Jordan -- Fruitvale Station
Will Poulter-- We're the Millers
Margot Robbie -- The Wolf of Wall Street
Miles Teller -- The Spectacular Now

Michael B. Jordan
Michael B. Jordan has been making a lot of noise in Hollywood since his performance in Fruitvale Station” and we think he will win the golden popcorn in this category.

KISS
Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams -- American Hustle
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson -- Don Jon
James Franco, Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens -- Spring Breakers
Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller -- The Spectacular Now
Emma Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and Will Poulter -- We're the Millers

James Franco, Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens -- Spring Breakers
The raunchy three-way kiss between James Franco, Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens will probably win.

FIGHT
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues -- Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner and Steve Carell vs. James Marsden vs. Sacha Baron Cohen vs. Kanye West vs. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler vs. Jim Carrey and Marion Cotillard vs. Will Smith vs. Liam Neeson and John C. Reilly vs. Greg Kinnear
Identity Thief -- Jason Bateman vs. Melissa McCarthy
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug -- Orlando Bloom and Evangeline Lilly vs. Orcs
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire -- Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Sam Claflin vs. Mutant Monkeys
This is the End -- Jonah Hill vs. James Franco and Seth Rogen

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
The Hunger Games will win the gold popcorn because it’s the most popular among the MTV audience.

COMEDIC PERFORMANCE
Kevin Hart -- Ride Along
Jonah Hill -- The Wolf of Wall Street
Johnny Knoxville -- Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa
Melissa McCarthy -- The Heat
Jason Sudeikis -- We're the Millers

Kevin Hart
Kevin Hart has taken over comedy in Hollywood, and we would like for the short funny man to win.

SCARED-AS-... PERFORMANCE
Rose Byrne -- Insidious: Chapter 2
Jessica Chastain -- Mama
Vera Farmiga -- The Conjuring
Ethan Hawke -- The Purge
Brad Pitt -- World War Z

Vera Farmiga
Vera Farmiga definitely deserves to win for her haunting performance.

ON-SCREEN DUO
Amy Adams and Christian Bale -- American Hustle
Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto -- Dallas Buyers Club
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker -- Fast & Furious 6
Ice Cube and Kevin Hart -- Ride Along
Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio -- The Wolf of Wall Street

Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto -- Dallas Buyers Club
MTV could possibly want to honor the late Paul Walker and give the award to Fast & Furious 6, but McConaughey and Leto will probably win the gold popcorn.

SHIRTLESS PERFORMANCE
Jennifer Aniston -- We're the Millers
Sam Claflin -- The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Leonardo DiCaprio -- The Wolf of Wall Street
Zac Efron -- That Awkward Moment
Chris Hemsworth -- Thor: The Dark World

Zac Efron
Zac Efron is an MTV favorite and teenage girls fawn over him, so he will most likely take home the award for Shirtless Performance.

#WTF MOMENT
The RV Crash -- Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
The Beauty Pageant -- Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa
Car Sex -- The Counselor
The Lude Scene -- The Wolf of Wall Street
Danny's New Pet -- This is the End

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa
Jackass always provides the best WTF moments, so they have this category in the bag.

VILLAIN
Barkhad Abdi -- Captain Phillips
Benedict Cumberbatch -- Star Trek into Darkness
Michael Fassbender -- 12 Years a Slave
Mila Kunis -- Oz The Great and Powerful
Donald Sutherland -- The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Donald Sutherland
Barkhad Abdi’s performance in Captain Phillips was amazing, but we are guessing most of MTV’s audience hasn’t seen “Captain Phillips,” so Donald Sutherland will probably take home the award.

ON-SCREEN TRANSFORMATION
Christian Bale -- American Hustle
Elizabeth Banks -- The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Orlando Bloom -- The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Jared Leto -- Dallas Buyers Club
Matthew McConaughey -- Dallas Buyers Club

Jared Leto
This category is a tight one between co-stars Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey. Both lost an obscene amount of weight for their role, but we are going with Mr. Leto on this one.

MUSICAL MOMENT
Backstreet Boys, Jay Baruchel, Seth Rogen and Craig Robinson Perform in Heaven -- This is the End
Jennifer Lawrence Sings "Live & Let Die" -- American Hustle
Leonardo DiCaprio Pops and Locks -- The Wolf of Wall Street
Melissa McCarthy Sings "Barracuda" -- Identity Thief
Will Poulter Sing "Waterfalls" -- We're the Millers

Leonardo DiCaprio Pops and Locks
Leo takes home the popcorn for this one because he is Leo.

CAMEO PERFORMANCE
Robert De Niro -- American Hustle
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey -- Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
Kanye West -- Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
Joan Rivers -- Iron Man 3
Rihanna -- This is the End

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey
Amy and Tina will take the golden popcorn in this category, because they are fan favorites.

HERO
Henry Cavill as Clark Kent -- Man of Steel
Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man -- Iron Man 3
Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins -- The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Chris Hemsworth as Thor -- Thor: The Dark World
Channing Tatum as John Cale -- White House Down

Henry Cavill as Clark Kent
For this category we are not too sure who will take home the golden popcorn. Channing Tatum is an MTV favorite, but Henry Cavill grabbed the hearts of many teenage girls and there is Chris Hemsworth. We are going to go on a whim and say Cavill takes this one.
