Rebel Wilson will be hosting the 2013 MTV Movie Awards on April 14 and she has even more reason to be excited – she’s a double nominee! She will take on Anne Hathaway, Mila Kunis, Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson for “Best Female Performance” and she shares a nomination with her co-stars in Pitch Perfect for “Best Musical Moment.”

Django Unchained, Ted, The Dark Knight Rises, and Silver Linings Playbook lead the full list of nominations which include multiple nominations for stars like Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson.

Fans will have the “Power of the Popcorn” in their hands as voting begins today, Tuesday, March 5 at MovieAwards.MTV.com through Saturday, April 13.

Airing LIVE on Sunday, April 14 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT from the Sony Pictures Studios Lot in Culver City, CA, the “2013 MTV Movie Awards” will serve as the official kick off to the Summer Blockbuster season with its trademark irreverent celebration of the movies, actors and music that audiences love. Previously announced, rising superstar Rebel Wilson, nominated for “Best Female Performance” and “Breakthrough Performance” as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect, will star as host and be joined by MTV’s Inaugural “Comedic Genius Award” recipient Will Ferrell, who is nominated for “Best On-Screen Duo” with Zach Galifianakis for The Campaign.

Keeping with the show’s tradition of celebrating current cultural memes, this year’s telecast will introduce two new categories. Abdominally blessed nominees Channing Tatum (Magic Mike), Taylor Lautner (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2), Daniel Craig (Skyfall) and Christian Bale (The Dark Knight Rises) will sweat it out against fan-favorite stuffed bear Seth MacFarlane as Ted for the crown of “Best Shirtless Performance,” while unforgettable moments from Les Misérables, Magic Mike, Pitch Perfect, Silver Linings Playbook and The Perks of Being a Wallflower will compete to win the inaugural “Best Musical Moment” award.

    This is a great list of nominees and I am excited to see Rebel Wilson host the Awards. I really am rooting for her to win some of the awards as well. Since I usually work my shift at DISH on Sunday nights, I will have to make sure I record the Award show. With my DISH Hopper I can set up to six shows to record during prime time hours, so I can record the awards and my shows and not worry about any DVR conflicts with my shows.
