Last week, MTV announced their nominees for the upcoming MTV Movie Awards and some fans are not too happy about the choices in one of the categories! In the "Best Hero" category, all five nominees were men which in turn, made many Hunger Games fans angry! Many feel that this category should include Jennifer Lawrence's character, Katniss Everdeen and are offended that there are no female nominees. A petition is currently going around that fights to add her into the competition and has already acquired over 10,000 signatures!
The petition states:
"There is not a single woman in the Hero's category. Don't let a strong woman like Katniss be overlooked! Please sign and share this petition before April 13 to demand that MTV add Katniss Everdeen to the "Best Hero" category at the MTV Movie Awards!"
It continues by noting that "young women already have too few female heroes represented in film and television" and that "we're constantly shown by the entertainment industry that men are brave, powerful or successful, while women are often given supporting roles and weak characters".
We can't say that we disagree with them! Katniss Everdeen was a popular and strong character that would give the other nominees in that category a run for their money! What do you think about it?! Let us know on our Facebook!
