MTV Movie Awards: What time does the show start?

The MTV Movie Awards take place on Sunday, April 12 at the Nokia Theater in Downtown Los Angeles and airs live on MTV at 5:00 pm PT/8:00 pm ET. Amy Schumer is making her debut as host of the 24th annual edition of this kudofest.

Looking for a handy cheat sheet before entering our contest to predict Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards and be in with a chance to win $100 and a place of honor on our leaderboard? Then take a look at our our racetrack odds below. The predicted winners are indicated in gold (be sure to click on each category title for an in-depth look at that race).

These official odds are based on a combination of three sets of forecasts at Gold Derby: Editors, the Top 24 Users (at last year’s nominations) and All Users. Overall, last year’s Top 24 team didn’t do any better than Editors or Users – we all scored 35.71% correct, down from the previous year when we all forecast 50% of winners, which was down from the year before that, when the Top 24 and All Users scored 66.67% correct and Editors had 58.33%.

That means all of Gold Derby’s predictors are hoping to make a comeback, and you can help. If you think you know who will win this year’s MTV Movie Award races, click here to make your predictions. Your picks will be pooled together to generate our official racetrack odds, and if you have this year’s best predictions, you’ll win a $100 Amazon gift card (if you qualify according to our contest rules).

MTV Movie Awards: Can Shailene Woodley beat Jennifer Lawrence at her own ‘Games’?

Last year’s best user was JDMintz, who wiped the floor with the rest of us by correctly forecasting 65% of the winners. Click here to see who he’s predicting this time around. Note that he’s going out on a limb in several races, picking “The Fault in Our Stars” to sweep Movie of the Year, Male Performance (Ansel Elgort), Female Performance (Shailene Woodley), and Best Kiss. That could pay off with lots of game points, which we use to break a tie if more than one person has the best accuracy rate. We give you one super bet of 500 points and two of 200 each with the rest of the categories at 100 points per. Place those bets wisely and you could reap a ton of points if one of your longshot choices picks up a win.

Do you think JDMintz is smarter than our consensus? There’s still plenty of time to make your predicitons before Sunday’s telecast. Click here to visit our predictions center, where you can enter your picks, or use the easy drag-and-drop menu at the bottom of this post to get started.
