This year marks the 25th consecutive year that the golden popcorn will rule the world.
Taking place on Sunday, April 10th @ 8PM ET/PT on MTV, the show will be hosted by Central Intelligence stars Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart.
Here at Celeb Secrets, we are eager to see the presenters this year, but we are even more excited about the musical performances. We predict that the performers this year will be Fifth Harmony with their new single “Work from Home” and maybe even Ariana Grande with “Dangerous Woman.”
Both Fifth Harmony and Grande have killer singles out right now as well as amazing stage presence, which will add a little bit of girl power to that stage. We also think that Walk The Moon might be there performing one of their hit singles as well, which might give us something to “Shut Up and Dance” or “Work This Body” to.
Today, we are bringing you our predictions on who we think should take home the golden popcorn for the following catgeories: Movie of the Year, True Story, Documentary, Best Female Performance, Best Male Performance, Best Breakthrough Performance, Best Comedic Performance, Best Action Performance, Best Hero, Best Villain, Best Virtual Performance, Ensemble Cast, Best Kiss, and Best Fight.
Make sure you tweet us who you think will win each of these awards as well!
Movie of The Year: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Creed, Deadpool, Jurassic World, Straight Outta Compton.
Who We Want To Win: This was tough to choose because you had a lot of greatness in this category. If we were going based off of box office revenue we’d probably choose Jurassic World but when it comes to content, Straight Outta Compton blew every movie in this category out of the water. The movie was intense and when it was released, you couldn’t go anywhere without witnessing people discussing the film and even ragging on their friends who had yet to see it.
True Story: Concussion, Steve Jobs, Joy, Straight Outta Compton, The Big Short, The Revenant
Who We Want To Win: Straight Out Of Compton shined a new light on life in Southern Los Angeles. It showed the truth behind N.W.A’s first studio album and went on to revolutionize hip hop for years to come. The movie brought to light the work ethics of the group and proved how hard it is to make it. Plus, it was cool to see O’Shea Jackson play his father in this movie, so although every movie in this category shined a new light on their individual stories, Straight Outta Compton wins this one for us.
Documentary: Amy, Cartel Land, He Named Me Malala, The Hunting Ground. The Wolfpack, What Happened, Miss Simone?
Who We Want To Win: This one is a simple decision for us — He Named Me Malala. Malala Yousafzi was made into an advocate for children’s rights and was the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. She fought for her right to an education and was shot by the Taliban in the head for doing so, but she’s gone on an told her story to help millions of others. She’s even becoming a feminist icon for being so bold with her words, so we have no doubt in our minds that this movie will win!
Best Female Performance: Alicia Vikander, Ex Machina, Anna Kendrick, Pitch Perfect 2, Charlize Theron, Mad Max: Fury Road, Daisy Ridley, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jennifer Lawrence, Joy, Morena Baccarin, Deadpool
Who We Want To Win: Okay, so this category is very tight. There are several strong female leads, but we are going to go with Anna Kendrick for her performance in Pitch Perfect 2. Realistically, this one I think is too tough to call but we love Kendrick; the girl is hilarious and super fun to watch on television. She straight up killed it in Pitch Perfect 2!
Best Male Performance: Chris Pratt, Jurassic World, Leonadro DiCaprio, The Revenant, Matt Damon, The Martian, Michael B, Jordan, Creed, Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool, Will Smith, Concussion
Who We Want To Win: This is another right category. First off, Chris Pratt killed his role in Jurassic World plus watching him fight some dinosaurs was pretty great, but then there’s Ryan Reynolds who came in with a killer role in Deadpool. But after much thought, we’ve chosen Leonardo DiCaprio for his performance in The Revenant. Why you ask? Because fans just hate to see him lose and will definitely be pulling for him in this category.
Best Breakthrough Performance: Amy Schumer, Trainwreck, Brie Larson, Room, Daisy Ridley, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Dakota Johnson, Fifty Shades of Grey, John Boyega, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Straight Outta Compton
Who We Want To Win: In this category we are torn between Amy Schumer and O’Shea Jackson Jr. both were magnificent and as stated earlier it was incredible to see Jackson play his dad, but we’re going to have to go with Schumer on this one. Her role in Trainwreck opened many doors for her and we all learned we can relate to her really easily.
Best Comedic Performance: Amy Schumer, Trainwreck, Kevin Hart, Ride Along 2, Melissa McCarthy, Spy, Rebel Wilson, Pitch Perfect 2, Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool, Will Ferrell, Get Hard.
Who We Want To Win: This category was a simple choice — Will Ferrell for his performance in Get Hard. Anything with Ferrell does has typically has us in tears in no time and Get Hard was no exception. Watching his character transform from uptight banker to tough jail guy was a hoot and definitely deserves the golden popcorn.
Best Action Performance: Chris Pratt, Jurassic World, Dwayne Johnson, San Andreas, Jennifer Lawrence, The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay- Part 2, Vin Diesel, Furious 7, Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool, John Boyega, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Who We Want To Win: We’ve chosen Ryan Reynolds for his performance in Deadpool. Each and every fight scene was hardcore and had a lot of intensity, which really impressed us. The other nominees were great but we didn’t find them as powerful as Reynolds’.
Best Hero: Charilize Theron, Mad Max: Fury Road, Chris Evans, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Daisy Ridley, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Dwayne Johnson, San Andreas, Jennifer Lawrence, The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay – Part 2, Paul Rudd, Antman
Who We Want To Win: We are big fans of the Hunger Games series, so it’s no surprise that we are pulling for Jennifer Lawerence to take the popcorn home for this category. Her character triumphed against all oddsand broke the mold for every young girl out there. She’s the perfect hero and deserves the win.
Best Villain: Adam Driver, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Mad Max: Fury Road, Ed Skrein, Deadpool, Samuel L. Jackson, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Tom Hardy, The Revenant, James Spaders, Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Who We Want To Win: We’ve chosen Adam Driver; he was perfectly cast for Kylo Ren. No one could have played this character the way he did, plus the Star Wars fan base loved him! He definitely is an easy choice for this category.
Best Virtual Performance: Amy Poehler, Inside Out, Andy Serkis, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jack Black, Kung Fu Panda 3, Seth MacFarlane, Ted 2, Lupita Noyong’o, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Who We Want To Win: Who doesn’t love a talking teddy bear? Especially one as funny as Ted in Ted 2. Seth MacFarlane hands down has been killing the role as Ted for the past two movies, so it’ll be no surprise to us when he wins this category.
Ensemble Cast: Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Pitch Perfect 2, Trainwreck, Furious 7, Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay- Part 2,
Who We Want To Win: This was another neck and neck category. Hunger Games has such a solid cast and so does Furious 7, but Star Wars: The Force Awakens will take a mad dash for first in this race. They had such a vivacious group and everyone was so well cast. Fans have been waiting decades for this movie and it did not disappoint!
Best Kiss: Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, Fifty Shades of Grey, Rebel Wilson and Adam Devine, Pitch Perfect 2, Amy Schumer and Bill Hader, Trainwreck, Leslie Mann and Chris Hemsworth, Vacation, Margot Robbie and Will Smith, Focus, Morena Baccarin and Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool.
Who We Want To Win: This movie was a hit and miss for many because it was based off a controversal book, but this steamy kiss did not let anyone down. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan for their performance in Fifty Shades of Grey will win this category.
Best Fight: Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) vs. The Bear, The Revenant, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) vs. Ajax (Ed Skrein), Deadpool, Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) vs. Max Rocktansky, Mad Max: Fury Road, Rey (Daisy Ridley) vs. Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) vs, Lia (Nargis Fakhri), Spy, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) vs. Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Avengers: Age of Ultron
Who We Want To Win: All of these fights were extremely intense and well-done, but if there had to be one that made me want to pick a side, it would have to be Kylo Ren vs. Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This fight was massive, especially with the graphics and light saber action. It was beyond impressive!
