Seth MacFarlane Finds His Audience With MTV Movie Awards Nomination Domination

There was always a sneaking suspicion that Seth Macfarlane as Oscars host wouldn't go down well. His cheeky (smarmy) grin and risky (lewd) jokes aren't exactly in-sync with the Academy’s ethos. It was the ‘We Saw Your Boobs’ song that really brought it home.

But with seven nominations at this years MTV Movie Awards – matched only by Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained – MacFarlane seems to have found his true audience. Ted, like Django is up for Movie of the Year and Best Fight amongst others, and is expected to pick up a few awards come April 14th. Ted star Mila Kunis – who recently made everyone love her by just talking to someone about normal things - is up for Best Female Performance alongside Oscar-winning Silver Linings Playbook actress Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway in Les Miserables, Emma Watson in The Perks of Being A Wallflower and Australian comedian Rebel Wilson, who will host the show. Watson said of being nominated: "I am so excited to have been nominated for three MTV Movie Awards for Perks of Being a Wallflower! I love the show and I love this movie! I'm so thrilled."

Frontrunners: Macfarlane and Tarantino

There are films nominated for this award that couldn't even get close to an Oscar; The MTV Movie awards don’t just recognize brilliance, they recognise the ridiculous and the rude. For instance: Channing Tatum , Taylor Lautner, Daniel Craig and Christian Bale and Seth MacFarlane as Ted all fight it out for the crown of Best Shirtless Performance. That’s Best Shirtless Performance.
