2012 MTV Movie Award Nominee Spotlight: Best Cast
For an ensemble film to work, the whole cast must be greater than the sum of its parts—but it’s even better when all the actors are great at playing their parts. That’s definitely the case with these ensembles nominated for the first-ever Movie Award for Best Cast.

21 Jump Street
Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Dave Franco, Ellie Kemper, Brie Larson
Undercover cops posing as high school students in a big-screen remake of a cheesy 1990s TV show? Somehow, the hilarious cast made this concept LOL-worthy! (With a little help from secret weapon Johnny Depp...)

Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ellie Kemper
The ladies of ‘Bridesmaids’ proved to the world that men don’t have a monopoly on rude, crude, bawdy and bodily-function-focused humour. And we mean that as a compliment, really we do!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Tom Felton
The cast have literally grown up together, so it’s easy to see why their onscreen chemistry is magical. They vanquished Voldemort—now can they win out over all these other talented actors?

The Help
Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jessica Chastain
Playing Southern belles and their mistreated maids, these actors had to take viewers along for a ride back in time—to a chapter of American history some would rather forget. No easy feat!

The Hunger Games
Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Lenny Kravitz
Katniss and Peeta got through the Games with a little help from their friends in District 12 and the Capitol—and the team efforts of this stellar cast could help them prevail over the other contenders!

Stay tuned for more 2012 Movie Awards nominee spotlights!
