Re: Star Trek was completely shut out at the MTV Movie Awards!

Can't really start hating on the MTV Movie Awards now...
Sure, Star Trek XI can be looked at as the movie that revitalized Star Trek as a franchise and was one of the biggest films of 2009, but I think its overall popularity is somewhat overrated by Star Trek fans. All award shows are nothing more than popularity contests, IMO, and the voters simply voted for who they liked the most. Can't really blame them for not being all Star Trek fans. It really was an achievement in itself for Star Trek to be nominated for anything by MTV, because it generally isn't the case...
Also remember that MTV gave a fair amount of publicity to the movie both pre-release (one of the first good looks we got at the bridge was via MTV, wasn't it?) and at last year's MTV Awards. It all evens out.
