‘RBG’ film earns four MTV Movie award nominations
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has found herself in the unlikely position of competing against Avengers: End Game and Game of Thrones for an MTV award.
The 2018 documentary film about her life, entitled RBG, has been nominated for four awards on the music network.
The nominations serve as further proof that the 86-year-old justice has garnered the full support of America’s youth.
MTV by-and-large has a younger viewing audience, so the eldest justice on the Supreme Court was no-doubt surprised that the documentary on her was of interest to the teenagers and 20-somethings who watch MTV.
Even more bizarre were some of the categories for which the documentary was nominated.
In all, the movie is up for best fight, best documentary, best real-life hero, and a new category, most-meme-able moment.
In the best fight category, RBG will be facing off against two of the titans in entertainment right now: Captain Marvel and Game of Thrones.
In the hero category, Justice Ginsburg is up against tennis legend Serena Williams and Hannah Gadsby, an Australian comedian.
Along with RBG, both Game of Thrones and Avengers: Endgame were nominated in four separate categories.
In all of the categories — and the others up for grabs this summer — both actresses and actors will face off in gender-neutral battles.
Of course, the choice to remove gender classifications from their awards show is just the latest evidence that MTV is all aboard the liberal train. And their support of RBG only further proves it.
The award show is scheduled for June and will be held in Santa Monica, California. It will be hosted by Shazam! star Zachary Levi.
