Award shows are a great way to recognize the best actors, directors, musicians, and films of the season.

With the Oscars gone, some of you may be happy or disappointed by the results of the awards, but the season isn’t over yet. There is still another chance for your favorite film to win.

The MTV Movie Awards are planned to air 8 p.m. central April 14 on MTV. The nominees have just been released, and the decisions are sure to be tough.

Up in the top nominee spots are “Ted,” a film by Seth MacFarlane, and “Django Unchained,” a film by Quentin Tarantino that stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx. “Django Unchained” won the award for best original screenplay at the Oscars. Both films are have seven nominations for the MTV Movie Awards.

These two films will also have competition from other favorite films of 2012, including “Magic Mike” starring Channing Tatum, “Pitch Perfect” starring Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, and “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” starring Emma Watson.

Personally, I’m pretty upset “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part Two” was only nominated for one award. I am excited “Pitch Perfect” and “Django Unchained” are top contenders in the competition. I really enjoyed both films, and I am a huge fan of DiCaprio, who will also star in “The Great Gatsby,” which comes to theaters this spring. That’s a film I’m very excited to see; maybe it will win next years MTV Movie Awards?
