Angelina Jolie, Denzel Washington, Javier Bardem and Johnny Depp play dirty to win at the MTV Movie Awards

One of three Academy Awards winners — Angelina Jolie, Denzel Washington or Javier Bardem — could add an MTV Movie Award tonight to their kudos collection if voters find them good enough at playing bad.

The three Oscar champs are competing with three-time Oscar loser Johnny Depp and Emmy-snubbed Topher Grace (never even nominated for "That '70s Show") for the best villain prize at tonight's MTV Movie Awards gala at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Last year, it was three-time Oscar winner Jack Nicholson who won the award for his version of a vengeful mob boss in "The Departed."

Angelina Jolie came out on top in the best-fight race two years ago, winning with her then-co-star now consort Brad Pitt for their battle of the sexes in "Mr. and Mrs. Smith." Since then, she has proven she can take down tabloid reporters with her bare hands. Tonight, she will see if a virtual version of herself in "Beowulf" can make winning a reality. And a tasty treat that voters may find irresistible.

Entertainment Weekly described her role as "Grendel's mother, a mystic siren who rises out of her cave in the person of a nude Angelina Jolie, dripping water off her body like golden chocolate."

Denzel Washington was nominated for this same prize in 2002 for the same movie –- "Training Day" –- that won him his second Academy Award. While he was snubbed by the golden boy Oscar this year for "American Gangster," he could win a golden bucket at the MTV Movie Awards.

Javier Bardem is up for his first MTV Movie Award for his chilling portrayal of evil in "No Country for Old Men." The role has already won him a host of kudos, capped off by the supporting actor Oscar at the Academy Awards in February.

That same night, Johnny Depp lost his third lead actor Oscar race for his bravura performance as the murderous barber in "Sweeney Todd." Tonight, he is nominated for that role as well as the comedic one that has already won him two best performance prizes at the MTV Movie Awards –- Jack Sparrow in "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End."

And facing such strong competition, for Topher Grace, the villain in "Spider-Man 3," this nomination will have to be prize enough. And considering his past (bad) luck at the Emmys, he may be quite happy with that.

I love Angelina Jolie. Recent rumor says that she has given birth but their spokesperson denied it. I hoped that she'd win best villain but Johnny Depp bagged it.
