Bradley Cooper, Kevin Hart Nominated For MTV Movie Awards

Just when you thought awards season was over, MTV is building hype all over again by releasing the nominees for next month’s MTV Movie Awards. A couple Philly folks scored some nods:

Not surprisingly, Best Actor Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper is nominated for Best Male Performance for his role as Chris Kyle in American Sniper, but MTV has also recognized him for his hilarious turn as a back-talking raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy. He and Vin Diesel are both nominated, actually, for Best Duo for their teamup in the film as Rocket and Groot.

Guardians of the Galaxy is tied with Fault In Our Stars and Neighbors as most-nominated film this year, with seven nods.

Philly comedian Kevin Hart is also nominated in the Best Comedic Performance category for his part in The Wedding Ringer. The bromance comedy was released in January and stars Hart as a business owner who’s tasked to find male wedding attendants for a friendless groom.

The MTV Movie Awards take place Sunday April 12th. To see the full lineup of nominees, go here.
