The nominations for the upcoming MTV Movie Awards 2014 were recently announced and there were a lot of raised eyebrows when it was revealed that there was not a single female character in the category Best Hero. Many were expecting actress Jennifer Lawrence to be nominated for her role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire but she was overlooked.
This has not sat well with fans of the actress or the movie and has also raised questions over why a female character was not nominated for the Best Hero award at the MTV Movie Awards 2014. A petition has now been started by fans who are trying to get Jennifer Lawrence nominated for the award before the ceremony takes place, although it is highly unlikely that they will change their minds.
Instead of Jennifer Lawrence being nominated, the nominees for the Best Hero category at the MTV Movie Awards 2014 are Henry Cavill as Clark Kent in Man of Steel, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man in Iron Man 3, Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Chris Hemsworth as Thor in Thor: The Dark World, and Channing Tatum as John Cale in White House Down.
While Jennifer Lawrence has been overlooked for the Best Hero category, she has been nominated for Best Female and Best Fight in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. as well as Best Kiss for American Hustle. Voting for the MTV Movie Awards 2014 is now underway, while the ceremony will take place on April 13 at the Los Angeles Nokia Theatre and will be hosted by Conan O'Brien.
