Twilight star early nominations dominate the 2010 MTV Movie Awards

By Kim Palacios

HollywoodNews.com: The early nominee list for the 2010 MTV Movie Awards is proof of how far-reaching the fame of Twilight stars has become. Whereas the 2009 awards saw plenty of nods for “Twilight” itself, the 2010 early award nominations read more like the 2009 project list for the Twilight Saga stars.

The “Best Kiss” category has so much redundancy, it’s almost comical. The three principal Twilighters are nominated for a total of four films: Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson for ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’, Taylor Swift & Taylor Lautner for ‘Valentine’s Day’, Emilie de Ravin & Robert Pattinson for ‘Remember Me’, and Kristen Stewart & Dakota Fanning for ‘The Runaways’.

The only non-principal Twilight actor to receive a first round nomination in the awards is Anna Kendrick for ‘Up in the Air’ in the “Best Female Breakout Star” category.

Kristen Stewart (and both of her 2009 films) see a large presence in the “Best Female Performance” category. She is nominated for both the ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ and ‘The Runaways’, and will go up against Dakota Fanning, who is also a candidate for the latter.

“Best Male Performance” sees both Taylor and Rob for ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’; Rob is nominated again for ‘Remember Me’ (meanwhile, his co-star Emilie de Ravin was nominated for “Best Female Breakout Star” for the film).

Kristen, Rob, and Taylor are all noms in the “Global Superstar” category, which leaves only one more category in which “Twilight” stars received nods. That category is “Best Movie”, and only two of the five mentioned Twilight star films will contend. Unsurprisingly, ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ will compete. The final “Best Movie” nominee? ‘The Runaway’

In order to vote, head back to MTV.com on May 12th to weigh in on your picks for final nominees!

    Do you even bother checking facts anymore? The nominations don’t come out until next week. I know you need the clicks earned my mentioning the Twilighters, but try to back it up with facts. I wonder when real journalism flew out the window. Oh yeah, when Perez Hilton got a blog.

    Though really the kiss was nothing… it made the film. Winner for best kiss has to go to Kristen & Dakota.

    These are the nominations FOR the nominations. They havent cut them down yet and will be announced next week. Reading comprehension, hello??

    those arent the final nomination, on the top of each category it says “Voting for nominees is closed. But don’t let that stop you from browsing through some of this year’s eligible moments. Come back Wednesday, May 12, to vote for this year’s winners!”

    Humans make mistakes–that includes journalists. I was aware that these were early nods as I wrote the article but somehow neglected to include this in my first iteration. In any case, thanks for bringing the omission to my attention–it is my intention to report accurate news. I have changed the wording of the article to reflect that what currently appears on MTV.com are early/first round nominations.

    How did The Runaways even get nominated? The film only made 3 million at box office and no one even saw the film. The kiss had no tongue or sexiness. The kiss between Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried was a lot hotter. Also this is ridiculous. Why doesn’t MTV just invite the Twilight kids and that will be the MTV awards… What a disappointment.

    The Runaways is by far the best film up these awards. Everyone knows it. That’s why it’s in contention to be nominated.
    Um, duh
