    Starring Hollywood’s hottest actors and celebrities, the “2006 MTV Movie Awards” promises to be one of the summer’s biggest blockbusters. Sources close to the production have remained tight lipped, revealing little of the project’s storyline or script except to say mystery, adventure and mayhem prevail.

    The MTV Movie Awards are the only thing I've ever liked about MTV. I've been enjoying them since 1994. Are you guys predicting which movies you think will win, or which movies you think should win? Because if you're predicting the former, I think you're all way off in your prediction of best movie. I agree that Batman Begins is the best film overall out of the nominees for "Best Movie", but I don't think it will win, because it's not "fun" or "cool" enough to win. With the exception of Seven, they usually don't award best movie to movies as serious as Batman Begins. I'd bet on Sin City. I can see Bale winning "Best Hero", though. It's nice to see "The 40 Year Old Virgin" get some recognition. I think it's way underrated because of its title and subject matter, and I hope it wins a lot of awards.

    Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal definitely deserve to win "Best Kiss". I didn't like "Brokeback Mountain" very much, and honestly (no joke) their kiss was the most impressive thing in the movie to me. I was just really amazed by how convincingly they acted as if they "can't get enough of each other" and are madly in love through that kiss. They were all over each other like a teenage boy and girl at the height of hormone-driven lust, and it was an impressive feat by two adult heterosexual actors. On the other hand, the kiss between Clive Owen and Rosario Dawson in Sin City was also great and deserving of the award, because it was so hilariously over-the-top in its aggression.
