Hollywood hunk Leonardo DiCaprio looks set to bounce back from his Oscars snub to be the big winner at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards after picking up six individual nominations.
The Titanic actor, who missed out on a Best Actor prize at the Academy Awards on Sunday, is up for titles including Best Male Performance, Best Shirtless Performance and Best-Onscreen Duo with Jonah Hill for his turn as bad boy stockbroker Jordan Belfort in The Wolf Of Wall Street.
The film itself is nominated for eight prizes, as is American Hustle, while The Hunger Games: Catching Fire follows closely behind with seven. All three films are up for Movie of the Year, alongside 12 Years A Slave and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
Competing with DiCaprio for Best Male Performance are Bradley Cooper (American Hustle), Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), and Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club).
The actresses vying for the Best Female Performance award are Amy Adams (American Hustle), Jennifer Aniston (We’re the Millers), Sandra Bullock (Gravity), Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), and Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years A Slave).
As well as the serious acting honors, the ceremony also celebrates the light-hearted side of film, including a prize for the best kissing scene – this year’s contenders include Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams for American Hustle, and James Franco, who won a nod for smooching both Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens in Spring Breakers.
The winners will be announced at the prizegiving in Los Angeles on 13 April. The ceremony will be hosted by Conan O’Brien.
