Just now, nominations for this year’s MTV Movie Awards opened up to user-based voting (the same procedure as last year, where you vote for the nominees and then vote for the winners), and so far, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, its cast, and their other films (particularly Remember Me and The Runaways) are listed in quite a few categories!
For starters, the Twilight Saga has certainly made a stay on the potential “Best Kiss” nominations list, with four Saga-related kisses in the mix. Potential nominees for the category are as follows:
- Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in The Twilight Saga: New Moon
- Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin for Remember Me
- Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning in The Runaways
- Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift in Valentine’s Day
The Twilight saga did not get a nod for “Best Fight” or “Best Villain” despite the wonderful Volturi cast and scenes. Although, fans who believe this is an error are free to suggest a cast member (cough Michael Sheen cough) or fight scene for those spots.
Anna Kendrick was nominated for “Best Female Breakout Star” for her work in Up In The Air. This’d be about the dozenth nomination Kendrick has received for that movie. Surprisingly enough, though, this time she’s pitted against Emilie de Ravin for her work in Remember Me. Remember Me wasn’t de Ravin’s first film, nor was it the first project she’s worked on that gained her some notoriety (Lost, anyone?), but it’s certainly been one of the . . . yes, to cheese it up . . . more memorable roles thus far.
The “Best Female Performance” category is stacked with Twilight stars, too. It even leaves Kristen Stewart in competition with, well, herself for the nomination.
- Kristen Stewart in The Twilight Saga: New Moon
- Kristen Stewart in The Runaways
- Dakota Fanning in The Runaways
Same goes for “Best Male Performance” with Robert Pattinson versus Robert Pattinson in at least one instance . . . and against his on-screen nemesis (sort of) in another.
- Robert Pattinson in The Twilight Saga: New Moon
- Taylor Lautner in The Twilight Saga: New Moon
- Robert Pattinson in Remember Me
One of the newer categories for this year’s Movie Awards is “Global Superstar,” and you’d probably not be surprised to find out that Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner are among those nominated for that . . . er . . . nomination.
Finally, the “Best Movie” category also pertains to Twilight fans.
- The Twilight Saga: New Moon
- The Runaways
As a refresher, at last year’s MTV Movie Awards, the first trailer for New Moon was shown, and the Twilight series won in the following categories: “Best Movie” (Twilight), Kristen Stewart for “Best Female Performance,” Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart for “Best Kiss” (in Twilight), Robert Pattinson for “Breakthrough Performance Male,” and “Best Fight.”
