[ETA] Rain to attend MTV Movie Awards! Everyone please keep voting! Thanks!

[ETA]  Everyone please visit our 2010 MTV Movie Awards Project Page for a brief UPDATE.  Thanks!

[ETA]  Good morning, lovely Clouds!  I have a quick MTV bio update for you.

When I first saw Rain’s bio on MTV, it looked like it was still in MTV’s regular actor’s bio format, colors and all.  Well, I’m pleased to report that MTV has finally updated Rain’s bio page.  So, now his bio is displayed on a “golden popcorn” award background, with the “Movie Awards Nominee” blurb above his photo, just like all of the other nominees’ bios.

Now all we have to do now is VOTE for him like crazy until June 5th.

Thanks for your support!

Hello lovely Clouds,

I’m so excited!  Every single day I’ve been checking to see whether or not someone would get their act together and send MTV a bio for Rain’s 2010 MTV Movie Award nomination.  Every day, I’d tromp on over to MTV, log in, vote and then check Rain’s name for that magic underline and index finger that would tell me Rain had a bio linked to his name.  And every single day, I was sorely disappointed…

…until TODAY!

After work, I did my thing.  I tromped, voted and all of a sudden:  VOILA!  There it was!  The amazing hand that practically shouted, “CLICK ME.”

So I did.  And this is what I saw:

All I can say is THANK YOU “Rain’s people”—whoever you are.

Not only did we get a bio, but we also got a filmography, some photos and, yes, even some clips of Ninja Assassin and a couple of interviews.  How absofreakin’ cool is that?

Yes, it’s a very small biography—succinct and to the point.  But that appears to be the standard fare over there, so that doesn’t bother me in the slightest.   At least now U.S. fans will be able to read a little SOMETHING about Rain over at MTV.com.  And if they wanna know more, they can always just pop on over to Cloud USA and read everything else about him, right?  :-}

Thanks, Clouds, and big HUGS for making some noise for Rain over at MTV.com.  I truly think you had a LOT to do with his getting a bio up sooner than later.  And for that, I applaud you ALL.

As for MTV.com?  Thank you for finally listening!

To visit his bio for yourself, CLICK HERE, then click on Rain’s name.

  1. I hear you, Michelle. All of this was so unnecessary. Why didn’t they just respond (if not with the bio then with a quick explanation) from the get-go? Man.

  2. don’t mean to be a bitter pill about any of this b/c mtv finally linking a bio page to rain’s name under the badass category is certainly awesome and long overdue – BUT just wanted to point out that the bio page they linked to rain’s name under the badass category is not a newly created page – this is the SAME EXACT bio page they ALREADY had up on their website for him as an actor – like when you search “ninja assassin” and click on rain’s name next to “starring” – same exact page. yes, the page many of us told them repeatedly to link to rain’s name under the badass category if they had nothing else they could post – guess they finally listened. so obviously this was something they should have and could have done from the beginning – not sure what AMG has to do w/ MTV finally creating a link between his name under the badass category and an already existing bio page on their site. so in this case i have to say thanks to all the clouds who spoke up and made some noise for rain on the mtv thread – but i, personally, can’t say thank you to mtv for doing something they should’ve done in the first place – but kudos to them for finally correcting their oversight.

    • Michelle,

      Please correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t all of the other stars’ bios link to their “regular” MTV “actor” bios too? As far as I can tell, they do. For example, if I do a search for “Wanted” and click on starring “Angelina Jolie,” then her regular MTV bio pops up too.

      The only difference I could see, at first, between Rain’s bio and Angelina’s bio was that Rain’s bio didn’t have the words “Movie Award Nominee” above his picture and the page was not “Movie Awards Blue,” like all of the other nominees’ pages.

      Sometime today that issue was corrected. So, as far as I know, his bio looks just like everybody elses’ bio on the Movie Awards page.

      And, frankly, I’m happy with that.

      I do not know the inner workings of MTV. However, I do believe their explanation that some kind of “legality” was keeping them from linking Rain’s name to his bio at first, and that as soon as they had the proper permissions in place to do so, they linked it.

      What AMG (All Movie Guide) had to do with the linkage is still a mystery to me, but I’m assuming that it had to do with Rain’s people approving the content of the bio before MTV could use it for the Movie Awards Contest. But again, that’s only an assumption.

  4. Let me add that the only thing missing from his bio is a sampling of his singing, but since this award is about his acting, I understand the omission. Still, I do wish people could hear some of his singing too. It is MTV after all, right?

  5. I’m sitting here just giddy from watching all of the Rain clips that MTV attached to his bio on autoplay. I’m just delighted. Nicely done, MTV.

    His voice. Oh, his voice.

  6. Yes. Thanks to AMG (All Movie Guide) and MTV for getting Rain’s bio up. We truly appreciate it! The page looks great. (Incidentally, Rain’s first album was n001 (Vol. 1) and the title track was “Bad Guy.” But that’s okay — we’ll take it!)

    And a huge thanks to you, Terri, for getting that Bio ball rolling. You are a true Cloud.
