2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards Nominees and Who Should Win

2019-mtv_movieawards_avatar

MTV released the nominees for their Movie & TV Awards. Below are my picks about who should win and why.

The show airs June 17.

BEST MOVIE
Avengers: Endgame
BlacKkKlansman
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
Us

While I loved Spider-Man, I’m always a fan of Jordan Peele’s intricate work. I will admit that I liked Get Out more.

BEST SHOW
Big Mouth
Game of Thrones
Riverdale
Schitt’s Creek
The Haunting of Hill House

I’m so sad that next season is the last. I always laugh so hard every episode, and Schitt’s Creek should definitely get its due.

BEST PERFORMANCE IN A MOVIE
Amandla Stenberg (Starr Carter), The Hate U Give
Lady Gaga (Ally), A Star is Born
Lupita Nyong’o (Red), Us
Rami Malek (Freddie Mercury), Bohemian Rhapsody
Sandra Bullock (Malorie), Bird Box

Lady Gaga really surprised me with this role. She really committed and transformed into Ally and made sure this movie wasn’t just another remake and could stand as a film on its own.

BEST PERFORMANCE IN A SHOW
Elisabeth Moss (June Osborne/Offred), The Handmaid’s Tale
Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Game of Thrones
Gina Rodriguez (Jane Villanueva), Jane the Virgin
Jason Mitchell (Brandon), The Chi
Kiernan Shipka (Sabrina Spellman), Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

I go from hating June to feeling bad for her, then screaming at the screen when she makes a dumb decision. To make me go through all those emotions is a good performance.

BEST HERO
Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), Captain Marvel
John David Washington (Ron Stallworth), BlacKkKlansman
Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Game of Thrones
Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Avengers: Endgame
Zachary Levi (Billy Batson/Shazam), Shazam!

The best part of Shazam is that he’s super relateable. He’s flawed in the way that he just a kid. But he also sweet because he (spoiler alert) shares his powers with his family.

BEST VILLAIN
Jodie Comer (Villanelle), Killing Eve
Joseph Fiennes (Commander Fred Waterford), The Handmaid’s Tale
Josh Brolin (Thanos), Avengers: Endgame
Lupita Nyong’o (Red), Us
Penn Badgley (Joe Goldberg), You

Joe reminds me of what I imagine Dan from Gossip Girl would have grown up to be — a psychopath obsessed with the perfect girl he created in his mind. What makes him so captivating is that his commentary is hilarious and spot on.

BEST KISS
Camila Mendes & Charles Melton (Veronica Lodge & Reggie Mantle), Riverdale
Jason Momoa & Amber Heard (Aquaman & Mera), Aquaman
Ncuti Gatwa & Connor Swindells (Eric Effiong & Adam Groff), Sex Education
Noah Centineo & Lana Condor (Peter Kavinsky & Lara Jean), To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
Tom Hardy & Michelle Williams (Eddie Brock/Venom & Anne Weying), Venom

I have to admit, I’ve only seen one of these kisses. But this kiss really did propel Noah into popularity so I wouldn’t be surprised if it wins.

REALITY ROYALTY
Jersey Shore: Family Vacation
Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta
The Bachelor
The Challenge
Vanderpump Rules

WRITE IN VOTE FOR 90 DAY FIANCE OR LOVE AFTER LOCKUP!

BEST COMEDIC PERFORMANCE
Awkwafina (Peik Lin Goh), Crazy Rich Asians
Dan Levy (David Rose), Schitt’s Creek
John Mulaney (Andrew Glouberman), Big Mouth
Marsai Martin (Little Jordan Sanders), Little
Zachary Levi (Billy Batson/Shazam), Shazam!

These are all good nominees and from all things I’ve seen. Only hangup I kind of have is that Big Mouth is animated and I really can’t judge his performance like the other live action roles. But regardless, David is hilarious and in a category all his own.

BREAKTHROUGH PERFORMANCE
Awkwafina (Peik Lin Goh), Crazy Rich Asians
Haley Lu Richardson (Stella), Five Feet Apart
Mj Rodriguez (Blanca Rodriguez), Pose
Ncuti Gatwa (Eric Effiong), Sex Education
Noah Centineo (Peter Kavinsky), To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

I’m not crying, you’re crying!

BEST FIGHT
Avengers: Endgame – Captain America vs. Thanos
Captain Marvel – Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva
Game of Thrones – Arya Stark vs. the White Walkers
RBG – Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality
WWE Wrestlemania – Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair

BEST REAL-LIFE HERO
Alex Honnold, Free Solo
Hannah Gadsby, Nanette
Roman Reigns, WWE SmackDown
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, RBG
Serena Williams, Being Serena

Saw none…again. I’m pretty terrible at this, right?

MOST FRIGHTENED PERFORMANCE
Alex Wolff (Peter), Hereditary
Linda Cardellini (Anna Tate-Garcia), The Curse of La Llorona
Rhian Rees (Dana Haines), Halloween
Sandra Bullock (Malorie), Bird Box
Victoria Pedretti (Nell Crain), The Haunting of Hill House

I saw Halloween, but wasn’t too impressed by her frightened performance.  Weird she’s nominated in this because I felt that her role was so small.

BEST DOCUMENTARY
At the Heart of Gold: Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal
McQueen
Minding the Gap
RBG
Surviving R. Kelly

This was so groundbreaking that naysayers finally heard the women who have been talking for years about this abuse and they could be silenced no more.

BEST HOST
Gayle King, CBS This Morning
Nick Cannon, Wild ‘n Out
Nick Cannon, The Masked Singer
RuPaul, RuPaul’s Drag Race
Trevor Noah, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah

For host of an entire show, I would say Nick Cannon. But Gayle King’s single R Kelly interview really made her the best host.

MOST MEME-ABLE MOMENT
Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club – The Lilo Dance
Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood – Ray J’s Hat
RBG – The Notorious RBG
RuPaul’s Drag Race – Asia O’Hara’s butterfly finale fail
The Bachelor – Colton Underwood jumps the fence

This was hilarious because why does he keep moving his hat and why is the editing so terrible!
