Raunchy comedy "The Hangover" led nominations for the MTV Movie Awards, beating blockbusters "Avatar" and the "Twilight" vampire sequel "New Moon" into second place, MTV said on Wednesday.
But "Twilight" stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner dominated the contenders in the new global superstar category, while Betty White, 88, picked up a surprise mention in the usually youth-dominated awards.
"The Hangover" had six nominations, including best movie, best villain (Ken Jeong) and best comedic performance for actor Bradley Cooper.
"Avatar" -- the biggest grossing movie of all time -- and "New Moon" had five nominations apiece, followed by "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" and the Sandra Bullock comedy "The Proposal" with four each.
White, the former "Golden Girls" actress who has won new fans by playing on her age and contrasting her sweet matronly image with raunchy jokes, was nominated in the new "Best WTF Moment" for a dress fitting scene in "The Proposal" in which her character gets up close and personal with Bullock.
