Teen comedy SUPERBAD is leading the nominations for the 2008 MTV Movie Awards
after picking up five nods, including Best Movie.

The high-school comedy, directed by Greg Mottola, also scooped nominations
for the film’s stars Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, who will compete in the
Breakthrough Performance category along with their co-star Christopher
Mintz-Plasse. Hill is also up for Best Comedic Performance.

But Superbad will be going up against Oscar-winning Juno – which Cera also
