Fans have started a petition to get Jennifer Lawrence added to the 'best hero' category at the MTV Movie Awards for her role as Katniss in The Hunger Games.

Hunger Games fanatics areclaiming sexism as the MTV Movie Awards, which will take place in April, have only included boys in their 'best hero' nominations.

So far nearly 13,000 JLaw fans have signed the petition to MTV to rethink their decision.

It reads, "Young women already have too few female heroes represented in film and television...Teen girls and young women everywhere need to see that courageous, principled women can be rewarded just like men."

Twitter agrees:

Currently, the nominated list reads:

  • Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, Man of Steel

  • Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Iron Man 3

  • Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

  • Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Thor: The Dark World

  • Channing Tatum as John Cale, White House Down

JLaw could take on Bilbo Baggins any day. #TeamKatniss
