NEW YORK, NY. (Top40 Charts/ MTV) - Nerds, pirates and robots take over as MTV: Music Television today announced the nominees for the "2008 MTV Movie Awards."

Also vying for the much sought-after popcorn statue is "Enchanted," "Transformers," "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" and "Knocked Up" with 3 nominations each.
The 17th annual awards show will be executive produced by Emmy Award winning producer Mark Burnett.

Performers and presenters for the "2008 MTV Movie Awards" will be announced at a later date.

"As someone who had his nose rubbed up against a locker or two, it's great to see my cinematic nerd brothers get their just rewards," said Van Toffler, President, MTV Networks Music, Logo and Films Group. "It's our audience that has made these movies huge box office hits and they've clearly spoken by nominating films with strong characters they can all relate to."

Once again, the 2008 MTV Movie Awards roll out the red carpet for another star-studded evening. Celebrities, comedic moments, and special appearances will be among the many surprises during the live show. Additionally, MTV unveils another new category, "BEST SUMMER MOVIE SO FAR" giving a nod to most recent summer blockbusters.

The destiny of the coveted golden popcorn lies in the hands of the viewers. Fans can vote by visiting https://www.movieawards.mtv.com before May 23rd to support their favorite nominees in each category. Fans can also go online to vote for the user-generated category, "BEST MOVIE SPOOF" where viewers have the opportunity to submit their own original movie shorts parodying films from the past year.

As previously announced, MTV has partnered with some of the most popular UGC video sites, including Photobucket, MySpace, Daily Motion, Break, Buzznet, Heavy and FunnyorDie to give anyone and everyone with a creative vision their chance to shine in a celeb-filled arena. Finalists for the "BEST MOVIE SPOOF" will be flown to Los Angeles to attend the "2008 MTV Movie Awards" where one will be crowned the winner.
