Summer teasers, zany honors at MTV Movie Awards

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Break out the golden popcorn, the MTV Movie Awards are back.

Conan O'Brien may have missed out on the "Late Show" gig on CBS but he gets to host Sunday night's MTV ceremony, airing live from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

"American Hustle" and "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" top the nominees on the two-hour show, where fans vote online for such zany awards as best kiss and best villain.

But more important to the Hollywood studios, the MTV Movie Awards have become the ideal platform to promote their summer movies. This year's show promises exclusive footage from blockbusters like "Spider-Man 2" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

The show also features special honors to Mark Wahlberg and Channing Tatum, and performances by Eminem, Rihanna and Ellie Goulding.
