Minneapolis' own Barkhad Abdi was nominated for another award in his role in the movie "Captain Phillips."

Abdi is up for "Best Villain" at this year's MTV Movie Awards.

This comes after Abdi was nominated, but lost out on the award for "Best Supporting Actor" at the Oscars.

Unlike the Oscars, this awards show is voted on by fans.

The MTV Movie Awards will be handed out April 13 in Los Angeles.

KSTP recently spoke with Abdi's sister. Check out the video here.
