12 Years A Slave cruelly snubbed at 2014 MTV Movie Awards
Steve McQueen's Oscar-winning drama 12 Years A Slave was snubbed by esteemed MTV movie critics last night. Though it was nominated for Movie Of The Year, it was beaten by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Nominated star Chiwetel Ejiofor went home empty-handed, with the Best Male Performance awarded to industry veteran Josh Hutcherson for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Oscar-winning newcomer Lupita Nyong'o also missed out, with Best Female Performance going to Jennifer Lawrence for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. To cap a miserable evening for Steve McQueen's movie, Chiwetel Ejiofor wasn't even nominated for Best Shirtless Performance.

So Cameron Diaz has to appear in tiny pants but Jason Segel gets pyjamas? And socks? Don't get me wrong, I've seen enough of Jason Segel's genitals to last me a lifetime, but he could have at least rocked a boxer. TUT TUT.

Most perfect headline/photo juxtaposition of the day
No, of course Transformers 4 is not a kids' movie. It's actually a ponderous, meditative tone poem about the exploration of the self. It just happens to feature a space alien robot truck riding a space alien robot dinosaur while holding a big sword. Directed by Terrence Malick. (via /Film)

First Agent Smith was hired to promote General Electric Hospitals, now Morpheus literally sings the praises of KIA cars. What next, Trinity advertising tampons? "When I'm attempting to free the human race from the slavery of what they think is real life, I need to be able to think on my feet. The last thing I want to do is feel unclean... down there." (Morpheus via Empire).
