Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Diddy confirmed for MTV Movie Awards


By Sean O’Connell
The MTV Movie Awards frequently serves as an opportunity for celebrities (and movie studios) to promote other projects they have on the horizon.

So it’s no surprise that Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz — co-stars of the upcoming action comedy “Knight and Day” — will appear together and present an award at the fan-friendly ceremony. The movie awards will be held June 6 in Los Angeles … three weeks before “Knight” reaches theaters. Convenient.

Cruise and Diaz are some of the first celebs to be announced, according to People. They join rapper-turned-mogul Diddy as scheduled presenters. But looking at the list of summer blockbusters, you can almost guess that MTV faves Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell and Jonah Hill could stop by to promote “Grown Ups,” “The Other Guys” and “Get Him to the Greek,” respectively. It also wouldn’t be a surprise to see young Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan, stars
of Sony’s “Karate Kid” remake, popping up to present Best Fight. Just speculation, but anything is possible.

There will be new categories for fans to vote in this year, according to People. “Biggest Bad-Ass Star,” “Best Scared-As-Shit Performance” and “Global Superstar” have been added to the mix of categories. And international fans now have the opportunity to vote using their local MTV Web sites. Voting begins May 12, and runs through June 5.

Comedian Aziz Ansari of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” hosts the ceremony, which will air on MTV on June 6, at 9 p.m. EST.
