MTV award for best kiss: Keira & James or Kevin & Adam?

April 24, 2008 |  1:22 pm

Soon the nominations will be announced for the MTV Movie Awards, which take place in L.A. on June 1. Two categories are of keenest interest, of course: best villain and smoochers!

The villains' slugfest will be a delightfully dastardly smackdown between those Oscar-grabbing devils Javier Bardem ("No Country for Old Men") and Daniel Day-Lewis ("There Will Be Blood"). Hmmm . . . I sure hope we see that played out on stage with Javier thrusting that cattle gun at Daniel while Daniel smacks his skull with a bowling pin. Can you think of any scene that would better sum up — in so many enlightening ways — what the whole recent Oscar derby was all about?


Oh, yes! Wait! If Johnny Depp leapt into the fray wielding his Sweeney razor at their throats! Oh, what fun!

And what about the award for best kiss? — you ask, panting frantically.

Of course, voters will go for some man-on-man action there too. Remember, the last two winners of that category were nefarious participants in boy-boy nookie: Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen locking lips ("Talladega Nights") and Jake Gyllenhaal planting a big wet one on Heath Ledger ("Brokeback Mountain"). So that means — gawd help us all — we can expect a nauseating nom for Adam Sandler and Kevin James in a pic recently robbed at the Razzies (eight bids and not a single "win"!) — "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry."

Our forum posters are buzzing with their opinions of other likely contenders: James McAvoy and Keira Knightley ("Atonement"), Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey ("Enchanted") and Jenna Fischer and John C. Reilly ("Walk Hard"). CLICK HERE to spy on MORE of their views. Check out the MTV Movie Awards website HERE.
