Nominations for the 23rd annual edition of the MTV Movie Awards were announced on March 6, and Disney and Marvel managed to nab a few.

Mila Kunis has been nominated as Best Villain for her role as the witch Theodora in Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful.

In the Best Hero category, it’s an Avengers showdown as Iron Man 3’s Robert Downey, Jr will go head to head with Thor: The Dark World’s Chris Hemsworth.

Hemsworth also received a nomination in the Best Shirtless Performance category. Because these are the MTV Movie Awards, after all.

Iron Man 3 nabbed one more nod for Joan Rivers in the Best Cameo Performance category, as well.

If you have any interest in the outcome of the awards, voting is now open in all categories at You must register for a free account to vote, but the rules state you can vote as many times as you’d like.

Conan O’Brien will host this year’s awards, which will air live across MTV’s vast family of networks on Sunday, April 12, starting at 9pm ET.
