2014 MTV Movie Award Predictions: Best Male Performance

Will Win - Leonardo DiCaprio "The Wolf of Wall Street"

Could Win - Josh Hutcherson "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire"

Should Win - Matthew McConaguey "Dallas Buyers Club" or Chiwetel Ejiofor "12 Years a Slave"

Commentary - There is an interesting battle brewing here between the 90's/2000's generation and the new generation of the current decade. I am personally placing my bets on Leonardo DiCaprio. He is still incredibly popular, had two high-profile roles this past year, and when he lost the Oscar, social media blew up in anger. These angry Tweeters are the same folks, or many of the same folks, that vote for awards like the MTV Movie Awards. And while he is starting to show his age, I still think he has enough of a heart-throb status to get a win here. But do not discount the fresh face of Josh Hutcherson. And do not discount the power of The Hunger Games with the teens. The sure popularity of the film could spill over and favor Hutcherson.
