NEW YORK -- Oscar winner "12 Years a Slave" will face off with blockbusters like "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" and "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" at the MTV Movie Awards.

The network announced Thursday the nominees for its 24th annual Movie Awards. The other movie of the year nominees are "The Wolf of Wall Street" and "American Hustle."

Most of the best male and female nominees reassemble recent Oscar contenders including Matthew McConaughey, Lupita Nyong'o and Leonardo DiCaprio.

The awards' best kiss category will have a clear favorite: Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence's smooch in "American Hustle."

For best shirtless performance, Jennifer Aniston from "We're the Millers" will vie with DiCaprio in "The Wolf of Wall Street."

Conan O'Brien will host the show live April 13 from Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre.
