The MTV Movie Awards are Sunday night and one of our own–Martin Freeman, aka Bilbo Baggins of The Hobbit–is up for “Best Hero” against Batman, The Hulk, Catwoman, Ironman and Snow White aka Kristen Stewart.
There are now over 1,000,000 votes EACH for the two top candidates, Bilbo and Snow White (the rest are far, far, far, far behind). Even though a lot of Twihards are talking about boycotting the awards show (the last Twilight movie only got one nod this year and they feel cheated) plenty of KS fans are voting for her.
Some have apparently threatened violence or have just been needlessly rude over the fact their choice isn’t trouncing all competition. To this I have to say–come on, guys, let’s all play nice! We are kids at heart but we don’t have to behave like the worst of junior high days.
Maybe some KS fans just assumed she’d walk away with it. Ah, but they didn’t reckon with the power of the Tolkienistas, the Freemanians, Richardettes and the Hobbit Heads, did they? We can be a very determined bunch!
Me, I have always been one to pull for the little guy, the ordinary fellow, the unlikely hero, the dark horse. And I really want to see this particular little guy with big hairy feet and a willing heart win. Go to the link below and cast your vote.
If you are on Twitter, you can also vote with every Tweet by adding #votebilbo to each message. They are apparently only counting one hashtag per Tweet, so you can use the other characters to say something witty or profound if you wish.
As you can see, the ChaRACters and the CReAtor are also supporting this initiative:
So go here http://t.co/XGreLY2ei3 and vote to your heart’s content this weekend. Help an ordinary little hobbit officially achieve “Best Hero” status. He deserves it! Go, Hobbit-Heads!
