The MTV Awards have announced the nominees for the act on their web page this Tuesday. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is competing for eleven “golden popcorns”.

In the film industry, there are many prizes that compensate the hard work done in movies. From the actors to the studios, there are countless prizes given to the best performances. The most famous are the Academy Award.

The academy reunites movie stars every year to honor their work in one of the most important events of the year. Professionals from different areas in the industry decide who the Oscars go to.

But since 1992, the MTV Awards have given the public the chance to choose the winners. Because of this, many people think that the MTV Awards are more important than the Academy Awards.

The nominees are chosen by producers and executives in MTV based on their popularity, but the winner is chosen online by the general public. With categories such as Best villain or Best WTF moment, the event has gained massive popularity and recognition.

This year, the movie with more nominations is Star Wars: The force Awakens. The space opera competes in the movie of the year category and best ensemble cast. The main actress, Daisy Ridley, charmed the audience with her beautiful smile and performance earning 3 nominations, best female performance, best hero and breakthrough performance. In the last, she competes with her co-protagonist, Jhon Boyega. He is also nominated for best action performance.

They are not the only ones representing the movie in the event. Adam Driver is in for best villain and best fight with Ridley. In the best virtual performance category is Andy Serkis, Supreme Leader Snoke.

In February, The Force Awakens did not win any of its 5 nominations, but with 11 nominations and 2 billion dollars at the box office, the scenario appears to be very different.
