Now that we caught up on all the Oscar award-winning movies, it's time to get ready to watch one more award show. The big names of Hollywood can retire suits and ties and extravagant gowns for the night, and instead celebrate this year's biggest movies one more time in edgier looks—sneakers always welcomed—at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards.
MTV announced on Wednesday the nominations for this year's annual ceremony, which will air live on April 12. Leading the pack are three big blockbusters from the summer which include a superhero space story, a teen love drama, and flick that pays tribute to college parties.
