“New Moon” Sweeps Nominations for the U.K.’s National Movie Awards

By Kim Palacios

“The Twilight Saga:  New Moon” and its principal actors swept nominations for the U.K.-based National Movie Awards.  The awards give accolades in only six categories:  Breakthrough Movie, Performance of the Year (which is split into best male and best female performance), Most Anticipated Movie of the Summer, and Best Movies in the Action/Thriller, Family and Fantasy genres.

Though “New Moon” was not shortlisted for the Action/Thriller or Breakthrough categories, it received solid nominations in three others:  the feature was nominated for Best Fantasy; Robert, Taylor, and Kristen each got nods for Performance of the Year; and “The Twilight Saga:  Eclipse” will contend for Most Anticipated Movie of the Summer.

The formal (if not patriotic) name of the awards notwithstanding, winners are decided by public vote—and contributions aren’t limited to moviephiles living in the U.K..  Between today and April 30th, any fan may mail in a ballot or vote online, though certain special prizes (such as the red carpet VIP sweepstakes) are open to U.K. nationals only.

As film industry honors go, the National Movie Awards are relatively new, with the 2008 season having been its first.  Despite its fan-driven nature and its recent arrival on the scene, it has cultivated impressive attendance by nominees and presenters, which have included stateside stars such as Dustin Hoffman, Meryl Streep, and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as British glitterati such as Dames Helen Mirren and Judi Dench, Roger Moore, and Rupert Everett.

Though this year’s presenters have not yet been announced, it is guaranteed to be a star-studded event.  How many awards will go to New Moon?  That’s for you to decide.

The ceremony will be hosted live on May 26th, 2010 at 20:00GMT on ITV1.  U.S. viewers should stay tuned for news on possibilities for viewing the awards online.
