Go to MTV and give Rain your vote!

It is finally time, Clouds, to do what we’ve been itching to do—get over to MTV.com and give Rain a HUGE thumbs-up for his superb portrayal of “Raizo” in Ninja Assassin.  Online voting started at noon EST today and will go until June 5th.  Let’s help our Ji-Hoon get what he so richly deserves: the » 2010 MTV Movie Awards title of Biggest Badass Star.  Anyone who has the sheer strength of will to transform himself from stage performer into a zero-percent body fat killing machine, and can hold his own against Sho-sama (a shinto jinen martial arts master and head of his own institute, who has been in practice for 57 years) in any capacity should wear that crown for life.  Seriously.

» MTV’s voting page for Biggest Badass Star is now up, and right HERE.  The Rain clip they chose is of that unique and ultra-cool Ninja chase through Berlin traffic, something we haven’t seen in a ninja movie until now.  We like.

» The “About The Show” page has also been updated, and states: Final nominees are now in! Vote for your favorites nominees to help determine who should go home with the coveted Golden Popcorn. Which is exactly what we’ve been waiting to see… FINAL nominees.  Not what has been posted there before today, which was:  And now it’s our turn to tally up your choices. Once your nominee frontrunners are established, the winner voting pool will open on May 12… Which meant:  MTV was still counting votes.  And: Voting for nominees is closed. But don’t let that stop you from browsing through some of this year’s eligible actors. Which meant we could look through the people who were “eligible” for the final list.  That page full of actors was not the final list.  (We saw how some fans tried to explain that to other fans here and there, but were ignored.)

Up until today, there was nowhere on the site that said final.  There was nowhere on the Internet where MTV themselves had said final, nor anywhere that MTV had been directly quoted or sourced, just other sites, other media, other people.  Which is why we didn’t put the “Rain and Lee Byung Hyun officially nominated for MTV Movie Awards” story here—that wasn’t what the site said at all.  But good grief, that story was everywhere you looked, and poor Byung Hyun is the one who suffers for it in the end because as everyone can see now, like Rain, he was “eligible” but not officially nominated yet (though he darn well should have gotten in for Best Fight… are they kidding us, him not being in his final five for Storm Shadow? WTH?)

Someone “in the know,” when the official five Badass nominees were chosen, probably let the cat out of the bag this week, and J.Tune may have gotten a call for a statement.  Thus, their recent announcement that Rain was indeed a finalist.  We are speculating here, but that is certainly a possibility.

In any case, things have worked out wonderfully for Rain.  He is indeed the first Korean national to be nominated for an MTV Movie Award, and we are so stoked!  This is where our support becomes critical, Clouds, so let’s do our best.  Let’s help Rain to victory and bring him to Los Angeles.  Aja fighting!

  1. updated in forum too but figured i’d post this info here just keep everyone current 😀 if you are interested in supporting the “invite rain to perform at movie awards” thread on mtv discussion board – here is the new link:

    http://community.mtv.com/Discuss … 002D51D001900E4CB22

    !!! THREAD LINK UPDATE !!!
    so the thread that was up for 4+ days was deleted. the mtv board admin actually emailed me notification but it was more of a form letter saying the thread was deleted for possibly length, policy violation, etc. – but didn’t specify which – really helpful – not so much. and then a day later they re-instated it but Locked it so you can view but not comment – saying the topic was more appropriate for their movie awards discussion board. well DUH! if their dang site was easier to navigate and find stuff, i would’ve certainly posted the thread there to begin with! yeesh.

  2. I can’t find any rules posted by MTV about voting so I guess it is OK to vote as many times as we are able to. I searched other star’s forums and their fans didn’t find any rules either.

    I did find a suggestion on one forum saying that you could download different browsers and vote using each one and, if you have multiple email addresses, you can vote with each email in each browser. I tested out three different browsers and it seems as if Safari lets you vote over and over so you can just use that one browser.
    Here are the results of my tests:

    Safari wouldn’t let me login directly at all
    I clicked the Facebook icon in the upper right hand corner and logged in using my Facebook ID
    Safari seems to not save the previous vote once I change categories and I seem to be able to vote over again and again just by voting for a different category in between re-voting for Rain. I don’t have to clear the history, close the window or re-login – very fast

    Google Chrome retains my previous votes whether I login directly or through Facebook, but if I change categories and clear the history then I can go back to the “badass” category and re-login and re-vote (don’t have to close and re-open the browser window – saves time)

    Internet Explorer retains my previous votes and I have to logoff, close the window, re-open the window, clear the history and re-logon plus I have a lot of glitches (not recognizing my login and giving me erroneous login messages). Avoid IE, if possible.

    I haven’t tested Firefox – anyone have any ideas about that one?

  4. I’m not certain that it has been clarified here that it is possible to vote for Rain more than once per email address. You log in; vote; log out CLEAR COOKIES/CACHE/HISTORY Then log back in & do it all over again. It’s tedious, yes. But it’s for Rain 🙂

  5. As if the MTV situation going on isn’t enough…

    I find myself continually disgusted by the fact that I haven’t seen even one news source or site apologize to Lee Byung Hyun for all of their erroneous reporting about him being a final nominee and leaving him with egg on his face. (no one saying anything = it never happened, right?)

    *shaking my head*

    • I would have to agree with you, Stephe. It has to be discouraging to Lee Byung Hyun who, because of the wrong reporting, may have thought he was on the final nominees list when he wasn’t.

      And the silence from those same news sources? That’s just plain WRONG.

  7. hi again, clouds !!! i have an updated thread link as mtv has DELETED all three of our threads – unbelievable how rain-related threads keep disappearing. i am only going to start a new thread on their main general feedback discussion board just in case they consider posting the same post on three of their boards as spam (which is BS but oh well). if you have the chance, please see our thread and post a comment supporting our request for mtv to extend an invite to rain to perform at the movie awards show! i’m so peeved right now but not going to stop trying to spread the rain on as many forums/boards etc. as possible !!!

    direct link to thread:

    in case it gets deleted (wouldn’t be surprised) – go directly to the discussion board and look for another “MTV – please invite Rain to perform at the movie awards show !!!” thread i will have created!

      • well at least we’ve come to find that the mtv site admin or what have you isn’t necessarily being anti-rain lolz ;P upon review of mtv’s site policies, we’ve come to the conclusion that the previous threads were deleted due to the YT video links and photo insertions (copyright infringement). we’ve removed that content from our current thread and it is still alive and well 😀

        in addition, i’ve come across some opposition to this thread by fellow clouds – and that’s ok, you can support the thread or not! but just wanted to say this:
        yes, part of the point of the thread is to show our support for rain and say yah, we’re willing to make a public plea to mtv to extend an invite to rain b/c we want him to be offered these opportunities here in the US – up to him of course whether or not he is prepared to accept or chooses to decline – but you know it would be a clear and encouraging indication to him that ppl in the US (and around the world) want MORE RAIN !!! and the
        other point of the thread is make some positive noise
        for rain – have ppl check out the thread, say hey i didn’t know all this about rain, i’m intrigued etc. if just a few ppl learn something positive about rain by reading our thread, that’s a good thing 😀

  9. besides voting – there is another way to support rain on mtv’s site… COMMENT !!! please show your support for rain on the mtv discussion boards by commenting on our threads requesting that mtv extend an invitation to rain to perform during the movie awards show !!!

    we now have the “MTV – please invite Rain to perform at Movie Awards !!!” thread alive and well in three separate discussion boards on mtv.com (b/c their site REALLY IS that disorganized and confusing yeesh). our recommendation at this point is to comment on all three threads/boards to keep our topic at the top of the threads lists – make our presence/support known! and even if mtv doesn’t read the threads (but hopefully they do – esp ones making so much noise!), ppl who aren’t familiar w/ rain will read the threads and get interested !!!
