A bloody Western and the comedic tale of a trash-talking teddy bear lead nominees for the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.

MTV announced Tuesday that "Django Unchained" and "Ted" each have seven bids at the annual kudo-fest, set to air live on April 14 from the Sony Pictures lot in Culver City, Calif.

"Silver Linings Playbook" earned six nominations, and "The Dark Knight Rises" collected five. Other top nominees include "The Avengers," ''Skyfall," ''Pitch Perfect" and "The Perks of Being a Wallflower."

Meanwhile, "Silver Lining Playbooks" star Jennifer Lawrence scored five nominations, including best female and best kiss, best on-screen duo and best musical moment with her co-star Bradley Cooper.

Cooper is tied with Seth MacFarlane, the voice behind Ted, with four nominations each.

Fans can vote online for the winners in all categories, including biggest badass star and sexiest performance, along with the two newest ones: best shirtless performance and best musical moment. Go here to cast your votes.

Double nominee Rebel Wilson, star of "Pitch Perfect," will host the show. She'll be joined by Will Ferrell, who will receive MTV's inaugural Comic Genius Award.
