'Harry Potter' also earns Leven Rambin's wrath: 'That's so seven years ago.'

Surely the cast of the splashy big-screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins' novel fully understands warfare, which is why when MTV News recently spoke to Leven Rambin — who plays the ill-fated Glimmer in "Hunger Games" — she had some feisty fighting words for those other casts. Well, for all the films except one notable exception.
"I think it's a close tie between 'The Hunger Games' and 'Bridesmaids,' and I would not be offended if 'Bridesmaids' won, 'cause, frankly, they're my favorite cast of any movie I've ever seen ever," she dished. "I think it's neck-and-neck."
Of course, she had less-than-kind things to say about some of those other nominated films. " 'Harry Potter'? That's so seven years ago," she said. "So I think 'The Hunger Games' is the hot new kids on the block."
And she wasn't shy to brush off "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1," another major movie franchise vying for the Golden Popcorn when the show goes live this Sunday (June 3). "What? What's that? 'Breaking' who?" she sassed.
In the Movie of the Year category, Rambin and the other Tributes face off against "Bridesmaids," "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2," "The Help" and "Breaking Dawn - Part 1". Meanwhile, in the Best Cast competition, "The Hunger Games" will take on "Bridesmaids," "Deathly Hallows, Part 2," "21 Jump Street" and "The Help."
Want to know who will win? Well, the 2012 MTV Movie Awards will be hosted by Russell Brand and feature performances from Fun., The Black Keys, Martin Solveig and Wiz Khalifa. It all goes down at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday, June 3.
