MTV Movie Awards

Pass the golden popcorn because the MTV Movie Awards are just about here! We've been looking forward to the hip award show since nominations were announced. And hey, if we're being totally honest, we've been sizing up contenders for best movie kiss ever since last year's show. MTV's big night for movies is packed with surprises, so which ones top our list?

Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, The Dark Knight Rises

1. The Dark Knight Will Rise With a Sneak Peek: Every time a new poster, movie still, trailer or even a blurry on-set pic of The Dark Knight Rises pops up, we get a little giddy. After all, the flick is one of the most-anticipated films of the year. So we will of course be glued to our TV sets to watch Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman and Christopher Nolan debut an exclusive clip from the movie.

2. Russell Brand Will Zing and Then Some: It's the Rock of Ages comedian's first time emceeing the movie awards, but if his previous stints hosting the network's video music awards are any indication, we're in for a cheeky—and yes, probably raunchy—night.

Emma Stone, The Help


5. Emma Stone Will Blaze Trails: Is there anything this gal can't do? We adore just about every flick she's starred in and it looks like the music network does too. Tonight she'll be honored with MTV's first-ever Trailblazer award.
