The voting has only been open a few days in our social media-driven MTV Movie Awards "Best Hero" category, but it's already clear that this fight for heroic supremacy will come down to a battle between two fierce fandoms: The K-Stewards and the Bilbros. (Yes, we just made those up. Yes, you may immediately put them into universal circulation on the internet.) As we speak, Kristen Stewart in her role as Snow White is just barely edging out Martin Freeman as the hairy-footed Mr. Baggins for the win—separated by a mere 5,000 votes or so. And the Baggins is gaining on her, precious, oh yes! Gainingggggg!
A reminder: Best Hero is the only category at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards for which you can vote exclusively on Twitter and Instagram, by tagging your posts with the hashtag promoting your particular favorite on-screen super-friend. And whether you #votesnowwhite, #votebilbo, or vote against hope that Iron Man might have a late-game comeback and soundly trounce errbody, now's your chance to throw in for your personal hero's right to take home the Golden Popcorn. Hash those tags, people, and tune in on April 14 to find out who wins!
Will Jennifer Lawrence get her silver lining in the form of a Golden Popcorn? Which beefcake will sizzle in our brand-new Best Shirtless Performance category?
