Slumdog Millionaire, Twilight Lead MTV Movie Award Noms

The category "Best WTF Moment" has been added to the MTV Movie Awards this year, but with films like Slumdog Millionaire and Milk competing with High School Musical 3 and Twilight, every category screams, "WTF?"

This is the 18th annual MTV Movie Awards, but the first year that fans have voted on the final nominees. That may explain some of the odd match ups, which are, "pitting Hollywood vampires against the Mumbai slums," as the MTV press release put it. Of course, the MTV Movie Awards have never been presented as a serious awards show, but it's still strange to think that Anne Hathaway is nominated for her performance in Bride Wars not Rachel Getting Married, and that Ashley Tisdale could beat Freida Pinto for the best Female Breakthrough Performance.

From today through May 27 viewers can vote at MovieAwards.MTV.com to determine the winners, which will be announced during a live broadcast on Sunday, May 31, hosted by Andy Samberg. The nominees are:
