MTV Movie Awards show nomination love to ‘Bridesmaids,’ ‘Hunger Games’ and Ryan Gosling


Ryan Gosling in “Drive.” (Richard Foreman Jr. - SMPSP)
While Ryan Gosling was shut out on Oscar nomination day this year, his work in the very sleek (and extremely violent) “Drive” has finally been recognized by a show that knows what the people want: The MTV Movie Awards.

Gosling was nominated for best male performance, best gut-wrenching performance and best kiss for the smooch he shared with Emma Stone in “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” (He won the latter award in 2005 for his kiss with then girlfriend Rachel McAdams in “The Notebook.”)

Will this be enough to get Gosling to finally attend an award show this year? My fingers are certainly crossed.

Bridesmaids” and “The Hunger Games” earned the most nominations overall with eight each. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2” secured five, while “Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 1” received just two. These four films, along with “The Help,” are nominated for movie of the year.
