MTV Movie Awards to Add Best Spoof Category
(released 3/13/2007)

MTV and Yahoo! Movies will be working in partnership with Mark Burnett Productions to enhance the "2007 MTV Movie Awards." Through "MTV Movie Awards on Yahoo!," aspiring filmmakers will be offered the platform to showcase their twisted genius and story-telling talent. The interactive site, launching April 23, will allow them to submit their own original movie shorts parodying films from the past year for consideration in the first ever "Best Movie Spoof" User Generated Category. The undiscovered talent will be revealed to the world during MTV's live June 3 broadcast from the Gibson Theater in Universal City.

All aspiring content creators are encouraged to upload their submissions via Yahoo! Movies while other visitors to the site can rate and discuss the submissions. The final five nominees will be flown to the "2007 MTV Movie Awards" in Los Angeles. The fans will then vote on which of the five nominees takes home the new "Best Spoof MTV Movie Award."

On the Yahoo! site, each award category will be featured and fans can then vote on for their favorites in MTV's infamously irreverent categories including "Best Kiss" and "Best Villain."

Mark Burnett serves as Executive Producer for the "2007 MTV Movie Awards." Salli Frattini is Executive Producer for MTV. Audrey Morrisey and Ted Smith are Producers, Joe DeMaio is the Director and Kathy Flynn will serve as Event Producer.
