The MTV Movie Awards never pretended to be the Oscars. This is the ceremony, after all, that one time handed a Golden Popcorn trophy to Friday the 13th slasher Jason Voorhees for his Lifetime Achievement. They gave Jim Carrey a Best Male Performance trophy for Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls… which is the worst Ace Ventura movie. And they honored the Twilight films with Best Movie trophies ON FOUR SEPARATE OCCASIONS!

So yeah, we expect a little insanity when the MTV Movie Awards nominations come out. But the following 10 nominees are some of the most head-scratchingly bizarre recognitions, for assorted reasons. Let’s whittle through this year’s crop of potential MTV Movie Award winners to see who’s surprised to be included, and what bizarre categories in which they find themselves.

Jennifer Lopez, Best Scared-As-Shit Performance
Forty days. That’s how long Jennifer Lopez’s sultry, cheesy thriller The Boy Next Door has been in theaters. It came out in 2015, and still qualifies for this year’s MTV Movie Awards, alongside movies like Boyhood, Birdman and Whiplash. Why? No clue. But the movie made enough of an impact on the MTV voters that they dropped Jenny from the Block into the awesomely titled Best Scared As Shit Performance category. I guess her reps told the network ahead of time that she’d show up if nominated.
