It is finally time, Clouds, to do what we’ve been itching to do—get over to MTV.com and give Rain a HUGE thumbs-up for his superb portrayal of “Raizo” in Ninja Assassin. Online voting started at noon EST today and will go until June 5th. Let’s help our Ji-Hoon get what he so richly deserves: the » 2010 MTV Movie Awards title of Biggest Badass Star. Anyone who has the sheer strength of will to transform himself from stage performer into a zero-percent body fat killing machine, and can hold his own against Sho-sama (a shinto jinen martial arts master and head of his own institute, who has been in practice for 57 years) in any capacity should wear that crown for life. Seriously.
MTV’s voting page for Biggest Badass Star is now up, and right HERE. The Rain clip they chose is of that unique and ultra-cool Ninja chase through Berlin traffic, something we haven’t seen in a ninja movie until now. We like.
The “About The Show” page has also been updated, and states: Final nominees are now in! Vote for your favorites nominees to help determine who should go home with the coveted Golden Popcorn. Which is exactly what we’ve been waiting to see… FINAL nominees. Not what has been posted there before today, which was: And now it’s our turn to tally up your choices. Once your nominee frontrunners are established, the winner voting pool will open on May 12… Which meant: MTV was still counting votes. And: Voting for nominees is closed. But don’t let that stop you from browsing through some of this year’s eligible actors. Which meant we could look through the people who were “eligible” for the final list. That page full of actors was not the final list.
