Comedies having last laughs at MTV Awards

Comedies, often snubbed by award shows, will be front and centre at this year's MTV Movie Awards.

The 40 Year Old Virgin and Wedding Crashers have five nominations each for the awards, both competing for best movie with Batman Begins, King Kong and Sin City.

Virgin star Steve Carell is up for three awards, including best performance, best comedic performance and best on-screen team with Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen and Romany Malco.

Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn will also vie for best on-screen team for Wedding Crashers. Both actors received nominations for best comedic performance.

Nominees for best kiss include Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger for Brokeback Mountain and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for Mr & Mrs Smith. Sexiest performance nominees include Rob Schneider, Beyonce Knowles, Jessica Alba, Jessica Simpson and Ziyi Zhang. The awards are on June 3.
