Both films are also nominated in the Best Cast category and for the Best Breakthrough Performance, for Bridesmaids' Melissa McCarthy and The Hunger Games' Liam Hemsworth.

Meanwhile, in the Best Male Performance category, Channing Tatum (The Vow), Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (50/50), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) and Ryan Gosling (Drive) will all compete for the award.
