We'll get to Robert Pattinson & Co. in a second, but first this: If you think the Betty White parade ended at Saturday Night Live, think again.

Hollywood's 88-year-old It girl has been nominated for...

an MTV Movie Award!

The funnylady's work copping a feel of Sandra Bullock's boobs in The Proposal is up for Best WTF Moment. Her competition includes Bill Murray as a surprise zombie in Zombieland, Isabel Lucas' transformation in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Megan Fox's lovely vomiting of a gross black ooze in Jennifer's Body.

Ken Jeong is another nominee for his hilarious naked trunk surprise in The Hangover. "I am so honored and very humbled by the nominations," Jeong said in a statement. "Thank you to all the fans that voted for me and my penis."

No word yet if White plans to thank Bullock's bosom if she takes home the golden popcorn.

Twilight Saga: New Moon is up for Best Movie. And while we're sure our fave vampire sequel will win, it's got stiff competition from the other nominees: Alice in Wonderland, Avatar, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and The Hangover. (Voting for Best Movie actually continues throughout the live awards show telecast on June 6 at MTV.com.)

New Moon—no duh!—has nominations galore. And get this: Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are competing against each one another in this year's new category, Global Superstar. Rounding out the competition are Johnny Depp and Daniel Radcliffe.

Stewart also goes up against herself for Best Kiss for playing tonsil hockey with Pattinson and doing the same with Dakota Fanning in The Runaways. Lautner also gets in on that game with his and Taylor Swift's lip-lock in Valentine's Day.  Avatar 's Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington and Sandra Bullock and hotter-than-hot Ryan Reynolds made the cut, too.

Now, let's all promise if we see R.Patz hanging with Betty White, don't go hatin' on the Golden Girl. We're sure they're just friends.
