The big night is almost here!

Which night, you ask? The Golden Globes? The Oscars?

Okay, so maybe it’s not exactly the biggest night in Hollywood. Harvey Weinstein isn’t losing any sleep over whether or not his movies will win, and old Best Actress nominee of all time Emmanuelle Riva most likely won't be in attendance. The MTV Movie Awards is the awards show where Oscar-caliber films like Silver Linings Playbook and Django Unchained fight for the title of Movie of the Year alongside less-highbrow fare like Ted and The Avengers, and things shake out a little differently than they do when statuettes are doled out by the Academy.

In fact, along with such traditional categories as Best Male/Female Performance, the MTV Movie Awards are known for making up new categories virtually every year, with this year’s awards for Best Shirtless Performance, Best WTF Moment, and Best Scared As Sh*t Performance representing categories we don’t think will be added to the Oscars any time soon. And given how much fun this can be, we’ve decided to suggest a few bonus categories ― and guess at who would be nominated.
