There are at least 11 reasons to love Jennifer Lawrence.

And one big reason right now for her fans to hate MTV.

The network announced its 2014 MTV Movie Awards nominees last week and not only was Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen excluded from the Best Hero category... all females were left out!

The list includes Henry Cavill as Clark Kent; Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man; Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins; Chris Hemsworth as Thor; and Channing Tatum as John Cale.

At the time of his death, Philip Seymour Hoffman had completed filming on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.

But the actor - who came on board Catching Fire in the role of head gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee - still had a few scenes remaining when he died of a heroin overdose last week.

According to Page Six, however, Lionsgate will not recast the actor or even cut key scenes from the final installment of The Hunger Games franchise.

They will actually add him in via CGI.

“You can do digital things, you can have conversations where you’re not focusing on him but the people he’s talking to,” an insider tells The Hollywood Reporter of how this will be accomplished.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman's death on Sunday has left Hollywood shocked and saddened. 

Tons of celebrities have already taken to Twitter to react to the beloved actor's passing, and now his Hunger Games family is making a statement, as well.

On Sunday, director Francis Lawrence and The Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins spoke on behalf of the film's cast and crew, saying:

"Words cannot convey the devastating loss we are all feeling right now. Philip was a wonderful person and an exceptional talent, and our hearts are breaking."

"Our deepest condolences go out to his family."

What do Jennifer Lawrence and Miley Cyrus have in common? Liam Hemsworth

And this fantastic parody-mashup of the JLaw-Hemsworth flick Catching Fire and Miley's song about her split from Gayle himself.

Man, this is weirder than we thought. And awesome. Weird but awesome. Yeah, let's go with that.

Cheekily titled "Reaping Ball," the video rewrites the Miley song and video. If you ask me, this one's even better than the original (if only because of Peeta and Katniss).

Enjoy!

Sesame Street has done is again.

Having already parodied Homeland (via Homelamb) and Sons of Anarchy (via Sons of Poetry), the children's program has now set its sights on The Hunger Games.

It tells the tale of Cookieness Evereat and her friends Finnicky, Tick Tock Lady, and Pita  as they plot their escape from poking monkeys and tickling winds.

Forget the positive Catching Fire reviews from critics, folks, and check out this first look at The Hungry Games: Catching Fur. And may the cookies be ever in your flavor...

We are fewer than two weeks away from the release of Catching Fire.

How are you preparing for this opening? By re-watching the original? By viewing the Catching Fire trailer 27 times per day? By entering into a competition with your friends in which only one person comes out alive?

We really don't recommend the latter.

But we do recommend the following: it's a video of cats recreating The Hunger Games by using cardboard. What else do you need to know?!?

Forget Katniss for a moment, people, and focus below on CAT-niss:

The final trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire debuted last night during Game 4 of the World Series.

And the new spot throws some seriously high heat at Katniss and company.

The preview gives fans a new look at the arena for 75th edition of The Hunger Games, which will feature howler monkeys, Japperjays and many other obstacles for our heroes to overcome.

We also see plenty of Katniss, of course, along with her flying arrows, Peeta, Prim and we hear a warning/question from President Snow: Would you like to be in a real war?

This Hunger Games sequel comes out on November 22.

We know at least one person who won't be in line this November for Catching Fire.

In an interview with The Guardian to promote his new novel "Doctor Sleep," acclaimed author Stephen King made his feelings on a few other best-selling books very well known.

  • Catching Fire Character Poster Katniss

Referring to The Twilight Saga as "tweenager porn," King explains of the books in this beloved series:

"They’re really not about vampires and werewolves. They’re about how the love of a girl can turn a bad boy good.”
