Nominees will be announced on Tuesday, May 1st with winner voting opening to fans that day through Saturday, June 2nd via MovieAwards.MTV.com. As in previous years the category of "Movie of the Year" will remain an ongoing battle throughout the live show when the 21st annual "2012 MTV Movie Awards" air on Sunday, June 3rd at 9 pm ET/PT on MTV from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California.

Also announced today, chart-topping indie-pop group fun. will rock the stage at the "2012 MTV Movie Awards" with a performance toasting the greatest party films of all time. "We Are Young (feat. Janelle Mon´e)" off their latest album "Some Nights" held strong at the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the past six consecutive weeks.

"The Movie Awards will be a re-imagined celebration of the most popular films and performances from the past year," said Stephen Friedman, President of MTV. "This year, we've overhauled categories and added a Breakthrough Performance award that will be chosen by some of the best directors in the world. We're also making music a more central experience to the overall show creative, and are thrilled to announce fun. - a band that has already imprinted a new anthem on a generation - as our first musical moment."

Once again, MTV fans will hold the "Power of the Popcorn" awards in their hands. This year's brand new "Best Music" category will allow fans to vote for a specific movie moment when the perfect song played during the perfect scene.

In returning category favorites like "Movie of the Year," will the final installment of "Harry Potter" bring home the crown or will the record-shattering "The Hunger Games" shake things up?
