Owen Wilson along with Vince Vaughn and Steve Carell received nods in the same categories at the 2006 MTV Movie Awards
Scored tremendously big through "Wedding Crashers", Owen Wilson is really riding high on the success as two nominations of the 2006 MTV Movie Awards have already fallen to his hand and this amazingly also happened to his co-star, Vince Vaughn, and fellow funnyman Steve Carell from "The 40 Year-Old Virgin." All receiving the same nods in categories Best Comedic Performance and Best On-Screen Team, these three comedic actors subsequently boosted their own vehicles to rack up a leading five nominations apiece, including Best Movie category in which the films face "Batman Begins", "Sin City", and "King Kong" as their competitors.
Still sticking to its unusual categories, this year's event, however, has made some changes as it no longer distinguishes male and female actors, melding those of Most Desirable Male and Female into more gender-neutral Sexiest Performance also others of Best Actor and Actress into the solo category of Best Performance. Consequently, Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon, who both starred in "Walk the Line", were put up against each other in the latter category. Giving a nomination each to the likes of Cillian Murphy, Dakota Fanning, Paris Hilton, and Nelly, the event will announce the winners on June 3 in Culver City, California to then be aired by June 8 via MTV network while there is still no word on its host yet.
