'American Hustle' and 'The Wolf of Wall Street' lead the 2014 MTV Movie Awards nominations.

Both films have snagged eight nods apiece, while 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' follows closely behind with seven nominations, and raunchy comedy 'We're the Millers' has six.

'Hustle', 'Wall Street' and 'Catching Fire' will all compete for the Movie of the Year prize, along with '12 Years a Slave' - which earned the prestigious Best Picture prize at the Academy Awards on Sunday (02.03.14) - and 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug'.

Jennifer Lawrence and Sandra Bullock lead the Best Actress nominations for 'Catching Fire' and 'Gravity', respectively, and they are joined in the category by Jennifer's 'American Hustle' co-star Amy Adams, 'We're the Millers' star Jennifer Aniston and recently crowned Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o for '12 Years a Slave'.

Meanwhile, Best Actor nominees include 'Dallas Buyers Club' leading man Matthew McConaughey - who won the equivalent award at the Oscars - Chiwetel Ejiofor ('12 Years'), Josh Hutcherson ('Catching Fire'), Leonardo DiCaprio ('Wall Street') and Bradley Cooper ('American Hustle').

The humorous movie awards will also crown winners for Best Kiss, Best Shirtless Performance and WTF Moment.

Nominees for the topless award include Zac Efron for 'That Awkward Moment' and Australian hunk Chris Hemsworth for 'Thor: The Dark World'.

Cameron Diaz has also earned a nomination for WTF Moment following her infamous sex scene with a car in 'The Counselor'.

The 2014 MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Conan O'Brien, take place on April 13 and will emanate from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.
