‘GTA IV’ tops games awards noms

Video Game Awards to air on Dec. 14

“Grand Theft Auto IV” is likely to mow down a few Video Game Awards.

Rockstar Games’ top-selling title will speed to the Spike TV ceremony with eight nominations in categories such as best action-adventure game, soundtrack and performance by a human male. The third-person PlayStation 3 stealth game “Metal Gear Solid 4” earned seven nominations, while “LittleBigPlanet” and “Fallout 3” captured six nominations each.

Those games will compete against recently released “Gears of War 2” for game of the year, the network announced Thursday. In total, awards in 26 categories – such as best graphics, music, shooter and independent game – will be handed out. Game developers Media Molecule, Rockstar North, Bethesda Game Studios and Harmonix are nominated for best studio.

The sixth annual Video Game Awards will be broadcast live Dec. 14 from Sony Picture Studios in Culver City, Calif. The ceremony will feature 50 Cent performing “Get Up” to footage of his upcoming game, “50 Cent: Blood in the Sand,” as well as world-premiere footage from other games.

The awards show won’t be without some celebrity winners. Actors and actresses who lent their voices to games are also nominated. Ricky Gervais, Kiefer Sutherland, Liam Neeson and Daniel Craig will compete for male big name in the game; Jenny McCarthy, Liv Tyler, Eliza Dushku and Judi Dench will face off for female big name in the game.
