Comedian Kevin Hart will host this year's awards ceremony, which will air on Sunday, June 26th, at 8PM, as black Hollywood struts its wears down the red carpet, prepped and primed to give and/or receive. It'll be a night of music, movies, laughter, with likely an unexpected occurrence or two, all while Twitter feeds are flooded with commentary from viewers, ranging from abhorrent to awesome.

Will you be tuning in? Do you even care? I don't have cable TV, so I won't be. But I'm sure I'll get all the details on the various social networking sites I belong to, as the evening proceeds.

Since we're primarily a film site, I've only included the film-related nominees below.

Your challenge? Choose your picks for the winner in each category listed, and, after the awards are handed out next month, a winner will be chosen at random, from all the correct responses. A correct response being one that gets them all correct! And only one entry per person, so no cheating.

You have exactly 1 month to submit your choices - so, on June 19th, 2011, the comments section will be closed!

The winner, as the title of this post says, will win a $50 gift certificate from Amazon.com.
