With awards season over, Oscar heavyweights and box-office juggernauts will vie for the top prizes at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.

After coming up empty-handed at the Academy Awards, Paramount's The Wolf of Wall Street with Leonardo DiCaprio and Columbia's American Hustle featuring a top-billed cast will have another shot at taking home hardware at the April event, leading the pack with eight nominations apiece. Following close behind is box-office smash The Hunger Games: Catching Fire with seven nominations and the Jennifer Aniston-Jason Sudeikis comedy We're the Millers with six. Best picture Oscar winner 12 Years a Slave, the Anchorman sequel, Dallas Buyers Club, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and This Is the End each received four nominations.

Late-night host Conan O'Brien will lead the annual ceremony, which will be broadcast live from L.A. Live's Nokia Theatre on April 13 at 9 p.m. PT/ET on MTV. Often serving as a kick-off to the summer movie season, the MTV Movie Awards are voted on by the fans. (Voting for most of the categories takes place at through April 12, while voting continues during the show for Movie of the Year.)
