MTV Movie Awards: Twilight Fans Take Control!

The nominations for the MTV movie awards are just starting. This year, there’s something different, and no we don’t mean that they had the very good sense to not to have Russel Brand host again. Mercifully, Andy Samberg of SNL fame will be doing that.

According to MTV the awards, for the first time in history, are now in your hands:

It’s time for some serious pop-culture studying because MTV is putting you โ€” and your love of the year’s best movies โ€” to work. For the first time in the 18-year history of the MTV Movie Awards, we’re opening up the nomination process to fans.

Here’s how it’ll happen: Starting Monday (April 13), head over to the official Movie Awards site to select the nominees in categories like Best Movie, Best Fight and Best Kiss. You’ll be able to pick from a list of more than 200 movies. MTV Mobile users can also make choices in the Best Movie category by texting VOTE to 66333. Voting for this round will close on April 20.

Twilight is among the nominees in these categories:

Best Movie: Twilight
Best Female Performance: Kristen Stewart
Best Male Performance: Robert Pattinson
Breakthrough Female Performance: Kristen Stewart (Dakota Fanning is also nominated for Push)
Breakthrough Male Performance: Both Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are nominated
Best Villain: Cam Gigandent
Best Kiss: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
Best Fight: Robert Pattinson and Cam Gigandet



  1. Voted!! and will keep voting till the due dated!!!! Yes Best Female Actress: Kristen Stewart!!! I love the whole cast!!!!

    Twilight must win in some category….hope it’s the KISS!!!!!!

    Fan ALL the way!!!!

  2. It’s kinda sad that people have admitted they’re voting for Twilight in all categories just because they’re a fan, and not because of any cinematic quality. What a ridiculous popularity contest.

  3. oh, that’s crap. I’m sorry, I am a huge Twilight series book fan, and I love all the movie news stuff, but when it comes right down to it…Kristen Stewart was not that good and neither was the movie for that matter. I don’t think they deserve awards because we all love the idea of them from the book. It didn’t translate well on screen.

  4. I’m not voting for Twilight for every category. But if somebody else chooses to,who am I or anybody else to say they are wrong? They enjoyed it best! I’m only voting for Kristen and Rob break through performance, and kiss. But I won’t tell someone else they are wrong, wrong based on what? It’s a vote. It’s going to be based on personal preference.

  5. Ooooohhh!!!!!

    I found a song that i think fits New Moon pretty well….”Already Gone” by Kelly Clarkson

    Im my opinion I think its perfect….but I want to know what ya’ll think…

  6. I think Twilight should absolutely win Best Kiss!!! xxxx

  7. twilight definetly had best villan, best kiss, best actors, best fight and all the others…
    but for me slumdog millionare was the best movie of the year….even though i LOVELOVELOVELOVELOVEd twilight and bought the DVD and watched it over and over again…
    slumdog millionare was astounding
    but in all the other categories twilight rocked!

  8. I only voted Twilight for Best Male Breakout Star – Robert Pattinson. The Twilight Movie really brought him into the spotlight more rapidly than any other celebrity this year, and I think that’s what “breaking out” is all about.

    I appreciate film entirely too much to vote for Twilight for anything other than what I mentioned above.

    IMO Kristen Stewart in Adventureland would have been a better “Breakout Role” because that really proved her growth as an actress.

    I voted Heath Ledger for Villain, for obvious reasons. Slumdog Millionaire for Movie of the Year. Slumdog Millionaire for Best Kiss.

    I think I picked Stepbrothers for Best Fight scene just because I wanted a great comedy in there. And I voted for Paul Rudd and Jason Segal for various categories for their awesome, awesome comedies.

    Honestly, I feel like the world sees the Twilight Fan Base as being at the same level of the Hannah Montana Fan Base. Every one is like blinded by the book/movie franchise that they get offended by any little remark or parody of them. And also the fact that they want to “rule the world”. No offense, but I missed coming on the Twilight Boards when everyone was nicer and more mature. Where did all of the Original Twilighters go? ๐Ÿ™

  9. I voted for all the Twilight ones BECAUSE I’M A DIE HARD FAN AND WELL BECAUSE I CAN it’s a free country !

    But honestly I think it deserves to win 4 of them AND I REALLY THINK IT WILL ! But I’m excited because I really think Twilight will win more than 2 YAY !!!

  10. So what if I voted for all Twilight ? WHAT’S IT TO YOU ? Yea the other ones deserve to win on cinematical and great direction and all that crap but YOU KNOW I HONESTLY LOVED THE TWILIGHT MOVIE more !
    I thought Iron, Dark Knight, Wall-E and Slumdog were all better and better made but THAT STILL DOESN’T MAKE IT MY FAVORITE MOVIE !


  11. I think Twilight should win Break Through artists and best kiss.

  12. I don’t understand how anyone can think Kristen deserves to win Best Female Peformer over Jennifer Anniston or Sarah Jessica Parker or whoever else is in that catagory who has been acting for years? I have a feeling some of you are voting just because you saw Twilight in the catagory, which is your right to do. But if you saw some of the other movies/actors/actresses Nominated there were others who are def more deserving to win. I Love You, Man was a great movie. He’s Just Not That Into You was an OK movie, but the actresses who were in it were dead on in their characters. I forget some of the other movies that are on the list. I love Twilight just as much as the next person, but I’m not going to vote for every single person just because I want them to win and I def do not think they deserve to win every catagory, but that’s MTV’s fault for putting them in every catagory too. Again just my opinion. =)

    Didn’t vote for Twilight in EVERY category… BUT I do think it was the Best kiss scene of 2008!!!! And I LOVELOVE KS!!!!!!!! Hope she wins best female performer!!!!

  14. FilDeCuivre says:

    Did anyone else find it somehow amusing that in the nomination for Breakthrough Performance Male there’s Rob and just next to him is Russell Brand ๐Ÿ˜€

    I didn’t vote Twilight in every category. IMO Dark Knight is better than Twilight so I voted it as the Best Movie, because I think it is the best movie I’ve seen, although I am a Twilight fan. And one of the hardest things was to decide who should win the best Breakthrough Performance Male Award. There were Rob and Taylor and also Dev Patel. Rob I already voted in the Best Male Performance and I think Taylor wins(yes, wins) the award next year after New Moon so I voted for Dev. Obviously Best Villain was ,and will be for a long time, Heath Ledger’s Joker. There’s no comparison between Cam and Heath. And the same goes with the Best Fight.

    But I did vote Twilight in 4 categories:
    Best Female Performance, Best Male Performance, Breakthrough Performance Female and Best Kiss.

  15. I voted for Twilight in every category because I just had to.And I voted once for Taylor and for Rob to be fair.

  16. HELP nominate Taylor!!!
    I want to see Taylor & Rob head to head for the finals

    I know this is cheating a bit, but you can vote as many times as you want, if you keep re-clicking the same catogory, and voting again .. (:

  21. Russell Brand did’nt even host the MTV Movie Awards last year it was Mike Meyers, it was the VMAs he hosted. Russell Brand is one of the best comedians around at the moment. The VMAs werent his best but most of the haters are american and are just anoyed he spoke the truth about your countries politics and gave the Jonas Brothers a bit of a roasting. He actually cut half his material he had planned out for the night because of sensitive people. If you need convincing of his talent go and watch his impromptu auditions for Forgetting Sarah Marshall on Youtube. Which by the way they rewrote the script to fit him because hes so awesome. He would also have to be one of the smartest comedians out there (except for mabye Demetri Martin who would take the cake easily) and has one of the largest vocabularies ive ever heard.As for cutting off Rob, seriously Brand’s rantings would be way more entertaing then the scripted stuff rob was about to say. And if your really wanna hear Rob talk so bad go watch Twilight again or Youtube some interviews.

  22. No disrespect Mark, but it’s your opinion that Russell is a great comedian not a fact. I find him quite annoying. Also about him putting America down, we have the best political system in the world. There is nothing I’d rather be than American, so when he says things like that I don’t feel offended. I just feel like he’s an idiot.
