Let’s Rock The MTV Movie Award Vote!

Two words folks—SPLIT VOTE!

Twilight is competing against itself in two categories: Best Kiss and Best Male Performance. We need to vote and vote daily or another category **coughTheBlackSwancough** could take away the Best Kiss. Seriously, was any other nominated kiss ( no matter how unique ) hotter than either Twilight kiss between Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner/Robert Pattinson?

An underdog **sputterThe SocialNetworksputter** or franchise film **wrackingdeepcoughHarryPotterwrackingdeepcough** could zap away Twilight’s chances! We were locked out on the final memorable line category for likely these reasons, so let’s make sure this doesn’t happen again!

Next words—The Pia Toscano and James Durbin effect!

Ok American Idol fans, you know what I’m talking about. There were two HUGE early exits on AI this year that were very likely caused because people assumed that their favorites were safe and didn’t vote. Let’s not assume that Twilight will take it all. We need to get in there especially for Xavier Samuel in Best Breakout Role, because he has no other shot at this!

VOTE PEOPLE AND VOTE DAILY! That MTV Golden Popcorn trophy is lonely, and needs friends in the trophy case. The Hurt Lock Oscar that it is sitting next to is nice, but it needs some friends that are its own style!

Taylor Lautner Films Movie Awards Clip

Last year both Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner filmed clips for the MTV Movie Awards with Tom Cruise, who was in heavy make-up doing his Les Grossman persona. (see video below). Well according to On Location Vacations, it looks like MTV has something up their sleeves again this year.

“A couple days ago we broke the news that Taylor Lautner was going to be filming in New York City for one day, but at the time we weren’t quite sure what the shoot was for.

Thanks to one of our readers, Ariella, we found out that Taylor was indeed in NYC today filming under the title “Movie Awards”. We can only assume the shoot was a sketch for the upcoming MTV Movie awards which will air on June 5th.

Ariella spotted Taylor filming in a cab outside of City Stage around W 19th and 9th in NYC. They definitely did a good job keeping the shoot under wraps since, according to Ariella, there were no fans around.”

Robert Pattinson Wants His MTV Golden Popcorn For Kissing

According to MTV’s UK division Robert Pattinson commented on being nominated for a third year in a row in the Best Kiss category for The MTV Movie Awards.

“When asked what his secret is when it comes to winning the Best Kiss accolade, R-Pattz sighed: “I don’t know. I mean – I thought I won it three times?! Did I win it three – [laughs]. It’s kind of terrifying if you suddenly stop winning it, you’re like ‘Oh God!’.”

The 24-year old added: “It’s almost worse than if you stop winning like, acting awards or whatever. If you can’t kiss anymore, it’s like ‘What?! I’m still good at kissing!’”

Male TwiHard Highlights MTV Movie Awards Omissions

BryceeclipseThe Male TwiHard blogger on Next Movie is talking about some of the omissions for Twilight actors in the MTV Movie awards. The two that really stuck out to us were Best Villain and Best Line in a Movie. Here’s what the Male TwiHard had to say.

“The most glaring omission is here is that neither Bryce Dallas Howard nor Xavier Samuel were nominated for Best Villian, a category where “Gossip Girl” Leighton Meester made the cut for remaking “Single White Female.” It’s not easy taking over a character from another actress — fans are always going to compare you to the previous version — but Howard owned Victoria like I own the acne on my back. I don’t even remember Rachelle Lefevre’s name (I looked it up, okay?). And Samuel, he is nominated for Breakout Star, but why not here too? Tom Felton’s Draco is the Easter Bunny next to Samuel’s Riley.

Then there’s Best Line From a Movie. Perhaps because the first two “Twilight” films gave us so many great lines, the members of the MTV Movies Awards Academy have just come to expect it. What about Edward’s line: “Bella, would you please stop trying to take your clothes off?” Not only is that hilarious, it more or less sums up the entire “Twilight Saga” in one sentence. Yet here is where the MTV Academy chose to honor “Grown Ups” for the line “I want to get chocolate wasted.” Clearly, they were chocolate wasted.”

Check out his take on the other categorizes here. What do you think of his analysis?

MTV Movie Awards 2011: The Final List

Twilight was heavily represented in the initial spread back in March. Here’s what made the final cut thanks to fan votes(some are popping up on different entertainment sites before the noon MTV total reveal)! Voting starts at noon today.
We will update this list as more nominations are revealed.

Vote here!

BEST KISS:(revealed at Teen Vogue)
Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt – Inception
Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson – The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner – The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis – Black Swan

Biggest problem here is the Twilight is up against itself splitting the Team Jacob and Team Edward vote. On the other hand it’s hard to describe the Harry Potter lip lock as truly passionate. With the Black Swan, most people didn’t leave that show saying “hot kiss” so much as they did “that movie was messed up”. Inception, may have something there, but really the Twilight smooches in our opinion own the “hottness” AKA “I want to be Kristen Stewart in that scene” factor.

Best Fight(revealed at Just Jared…they also revealed Biggest Badass star but no Twilight nominations in that category)
Amy Adams vs The Sisters—The Fighter
Chloe Moretz vs. Mark Strong—Kickass
Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint vs. the Death Eaters—Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Joseph Gordon-Levitt vs  Hallway Attacker—Inception
Robert Pattinson vs. Bryce Dallas Howard and Xavier Samuel—The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

There are a lot of really cool epic battles happening in this category. If it were just down to creativity, Inception would win hands down. On the other hand, Harry Potter and Eclipse have something going for them that the other films don’t, and that’s  what we are going to call the sticking it to the villain factor. Specifically, a villain that fans have been wanting to see defeated over the course of several films.  This is going to be a tight one of the votes, but we are leaning Twilight simply because no matter how epic the Death Eater Duel was, because the villains lived. There’s a certain finality to lopping Xavier Samuel’s head off that Harry Potter, doesn’t have. However, like we said this is going to be a critical vote and vote often category. It’s going to be a tough race with the Harry Potter crowd!

Best Female Performance (revealed at EW)
Emma Stone (Easy A)
Emma Watson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1)
Jennifer Aniston (Just Go With It)
Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse)
Natalie Portman (Black Swan)

We’re going to call this a three-way race with every vote counting: Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart, Natalie Portman.

Best Male Performance (revealed at EW)
Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1)
Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network)
Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse)
Taylor Lautner (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse)
Zac Efron (Charlie St. Cloud)

Once again we have a Twilight split vote and a Harry Potter nominee. However, we’re pretty sure Robert Pattinson is going to lock this one up once voting concludes. it’s not like any of the other stars have fans camped out in pouring rain storms to see their other movies.

Best Line from a Movie (revealed at EW)
Biggest stunner here was that “Doesn’t he own a shirt?’ didn’t make the final cut!

Best Breakout Performance
Andrew Garfield—The Social Network
Chloë Grace Moretz—Kick-Ass
Hailee Steinfeld—True Grit
Jay Chou—The Green Hornet
Olivia Wilde—TRON: Legacy
Xavier Samuel—The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

This a a three way race in our opinion among Xavier Samuel, Hailee Steinfeld who is Hollywood’s latest It Girl with big-time acting chops, and Andrew Garfield who has “the adorable nerd that everyone wants to cuddle”  thing going for him. Vote and vote often, this is far from a shoe-in!

Best Movie
Black Swan
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
The Social Network
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Again the biggest challenge here is to hold off the rising swarm that is Harry Potter. it’s not impossible, Twilight has beaten Potter before, but it’s going to be tough!

“I am so obsessed with the twilight world that with my friend we chose Stephanie Meyer’s characters to make a spoof for the MTV MOVIE AWARDS 2011 contest. Taylor and Rob are perfect as Jacob and Edward but they can’t compete with these 2babies 🙂 (check out her video and you’ll see what she means) And for sure, ECLIPSE is going to win the best line so we put in the video hehe if you like our video, can you vote for us?”
