Best Musical Moment
Will Win - Jennifer Lawrence "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1"
Should Win - Miles Teller "Whiplash"
Could Win - Miles Teller "Whiplash" or Chris Pratt "Guardians of the Galaxy"
Commentary - I would be thrilled if Whiplash took the cake here, especially since the whole film revolves around music, and Miles Teller is a popular young actor among the voting generation. But once again, I think this comes down to a battle between Hunger Games vs. Guardians of the Galaxy. Galaxy is the better of the two moments, but I think that this generation of MTV viewers will eat up another chance to reward Lawrence and The Hunger Games.
Best Scared-as-S*** Performance
Will Win - Dylan O'Brien "The Maze Runner"
Should Win - Rosamund Pike "Gone Girl"
Could Win - Rosamund Pike "Gone Girl" or Annabelle Wallis "Annabelle"
Commentary - Pike is obviously the best of the bunch, but she could be rewarded in another category (as you shall see). Plus, we have to remember the voting age of most of these folks. If they wanted to reward an actual horror film, then it will be Annabelle. But I think that The Maze Runner will play well with these particular voters, the same ones that love stuff like Divergent and The Hunger Games, and Dylan O'Brien, who is also on an MTV show, will swing enough voters his way.
