Fans of onscreen heroics should get their fingertips ready to tear up Twitter because that’s where they’ll be voting for their favorite onscreen do-gooder in the new category of Best Hero for the 2012 MTV Movie Awards.Beginning Tuesday (May 29) and right on through to the live show on June 3, fans can vote and track the nominees for Best Hero, presented by Sprint, via Twitter using hashtags associated with the nominees. Is your favorite hero a contender?Check out the nominees:»Harry Potter, “Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, Part 2 (#votepotter)»Katniss Everdeen, “The Hunger Games” (#votekatniss)»Thor, “Thor” (#votethor)»Captain America, “Captain America” (#votecaptain)»Jenko, “21 Jump Street” (#votejenko)The new nods for “Harry Potter,” “The Hunger Games” and “21 Jump Street” add to those films’ already hefty tallies. And the nomination for Katniss of “The Hunger Games,” played by Best Female Performance nominee Jennifer Lawrence, pushes that film ahead of “Bridesmaids” to become the most-nominated film this year with nine nominations. The bump gives “Deathly Hallows, Part 2” seven different chances to walk away with the Golden Popcorn (and remember, the franchise still unbelievably has never scored the coveted Best Movie prize despite several nominations over the years).“21 Jump Street” now has six chances come next Sunday’s show, while the nods for “Thor” and “Captain America” give both of those films their lone nominations for this year’s awards. Still, both movies will no doubt be serious contenders for next year’s awards given the amazing success and acclaim of “The Avengers,” which features the titular heroes in addition to Iron Man, the Black Widow, Hawkeye and the Hulk.The winner for Best Hero will be presented with the Golden Popcorn statue during the live show on MTV, Sunday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California.
