The 2016 MTV Movie Awards takes place tonight (9 April), with the show being aired on US televisions the following night. Filming at the Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California, the ceremony will see the biggest Hollywood blockbusters of the year such as Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Creed and Jurassic World battle it out for movie of the year while names such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon are up for best male performance.

Will John Boyega, Amy Schumer or Brie Larson scoop up the award for best breakthrough artist? And who will came out on top when it comes to best female, with Alicia Vikander, Daisy Ridley and Jennifer Lawrence all in contention?

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are taking on hosting responsibilities for the evening, while guest presenters dishing out awards will include Jessica Chastain, Chris Hemsworth, Gigi Hadid, Zac Efron, Kendrick Lamar, Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron. Chris Evans will also be presenting an exclusive look at upcoming Marvel movie Captain America: Civil War.

Whilst one winner is already a dead cert – Melissa McCarthy is set to receive the Comedic Genius award on the night – the other nominees are completely up in the air. Before the event, IBTimes UK have offered up our predictions on who will triumph in the five major categories.

Movie of the Year

Michael B. Jordan in Creed
Could Creed, starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, become the ultimate champion of the night?Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures

Avengers: Age of Ultron"

Creed - PREDICTED WINNER

Deadpool

Jurassic World

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Straight Outta Compton

A strong category when it comes to the heavyweight blockbusters, we think Deadpool, Avengers: Age Of Ultron or Straight Outta Compton could potentially walk away with the winners but given how critically acclaimed Rocky spin-off Creed was when it was released in November, we think that will take the crown.

Best Female Performance

Alicia Vikander in Ex Machina

Alicia Vikander, Ex Machina - PREDICTED WINNER

Anna Kendrick, Pitch Perfect 2

Charlize Theron, Mad Max: Fury Road

Daisy Ridley, Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Jennifer Lawrence, Joy

Morena Baccarin, Deadpool

Alicia Vikander was nothing short of the perfect choice for mild-mannered yet creepy artificial intelligence droid Ava in Alex Garland's chilling sci-fi drama Ex Machina. Charlize Theron, Daisy Ridley and Jennifer Lawrence were all great in their respective titles but Vikander was truly fantastic.

Best Male Performance

Oscars 2016
Leonardo DiCaprio might have picked up an Academy Award for his performance in The Revenant but we reckon MTV will praise Matt Damon for his lighter role in The MartianTwentieth Century Fox Film Corporation

Chris Pratt, Jurassic World

Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant

Matt Damon, The Martian - PREDICTED WINNER

Michael B. Jordan, Creed

Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool

Will Smith, Concussion

While Leonardo DiCaprio walked away with the Oscar for his performance in Alejandro González Iñárritu's The Revenant, we think MTV might go for Matt Damon in Ridley Scott's The Martian simply because they like a slightly lighter fare of movies.

Ensemble Cast

Star Wars: The Force Awakens
With original stars Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford appearing alongside fabulous newbies Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, we're sure Star Wars: The Force Awakens will pick up the award for best ensemble castWalt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Furious 7

Pitch Perfect 2

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - PREDICTED WINNER

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2

Trainwreck

Casting Star Wars: The Force Awakens was most definitely an unenviable task, and whoever had to do the job probably felt the pressure of making the new heroes just as likeable as those in the original. They truly lucked out then finding John Boyega and Daisy Ridley, two of the most charismatic people on screen last year – oh, and Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford starred in it too. It's a hands down winner,
