Katniss Everdeen, Beatrice “Tris” Prior, Veronica Mars, “Thor” antagonist Loki and “Star Trek Into Darkness” bad guy Khan are the choices fans have for Favorite Character at the MTV Movie Awards, MTV said Tuesday.
The winner will be determined by fans votes on social media. This is the third year that the annual award show honoring the trendiest, most YA-friendly titles in cinema has incorporated a socially-voted category, a tradition that began in 2012 with Best Hero.
Beginning today and continuing through to the live telecast from Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre on April 13, fans can vote for nominees via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Vine using associated hashtags, as follows: Katniss Everdeen (“Catching Fire,” #votekatniss), Beatrice “Tris” Prior (“Divergent,” #votetris), Veronica Mars (“Veronica Mars,” #voteveronicamars), Loki (“Thor: The Dark World,” #voteloki), Khan (“Star Trek Into Darkness,” #votekhan).
Hosted by comedian Conan O'Brien, the MTV Movie Awards celebrates blockbuster movies with a number of presenters and guests, including Mark Wahlberg, the “Entourage” gang, Shailene Woodley (above as Tris in “Divergent”), Ansel Elgort, Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton.
