MTV sure knows its demographic. Twilight, the novel adaptation with a heavy young female following, grabbed seven nominations for this year's MTV Movie Awards.

The vampire romance earned nods for Best Picture, Best Female Performance (Kristen Stewart), and Breakthrough Performance Male (Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner).

Big Oscar winner Slumdog Millionaire was second in nominations with six. Along Twilight and Slumdog in the Best Movie race are The Dark Knight, High School Musical 3: Senior Year and Iron Man.

The always playful awards show adds two new categories: Best Song from a Movie (why didn't the music network have this before?) and Best WTF Moment (surely you understand this acronym). One has to wonder why all of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button wasn't nominated in that latter category.

Below are all the nominees. Andy Samberg hosts this year's ceremony. It'll air live on May 31. Viewers can vote for their favorites now on MTV.com.
