The MTV Movie Award nominees are out, and it’s not a shock to see that it’s Epic Romance vs. Epic Romance. The always-memorable Best Kiss category pits newlyweds Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) in Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 against deadly showmance Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) in The Hunger Games.

OK, not just those two the category also includes Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams in The Vow, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in Crazy, Stupid, Love, and Rupert Grint and Emma Watson in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. But as far as we’re concerned, compared to Twilight’s epic climax and Hunger Games’ blazing debut, those others are just so many Huntsmans and Ron Pauls in this race. 

Other notable nominations include a Best Comedic Performance nod for Bridesmaids’ Melissa McCarthy, a Most Gut-wrenching Performance nom for Bryce Dallas Howard’s bratty turn in The Help, and Elizabeth Banks as The Hunger Games’ Effie Trinket for Best On-screen Transformation.

In the least shocking twist ever, Bridesmaids and The Hunger Games lead the cinematic pack with eight nominations each.

Voting kicks off Tuesday, May 1 at 8 a.m., and you can catch the event live on June 3 on MTV.
