NEW YORK, April 23 /PRNewswire/ — MTV: Music Television today announced the nominees for the 2002 MTV MOVIE AWARDS.

“As usual, the MTV MOVIE AWARDS is not your typical awards show.

The nominees for the 2002 MTV MOVIE AWARDS are chosen through a national poll of MTV and MTV2 viewers. The winners will be determined by MTV and MTV2 viewers, who can cast their votes from April 23 through May 18 via telephone at 900-288-4688/75 cents per call (must be 18 years or older to call); and via online from April 23 through May 18 by visiting MTV.com.
