Twilight actors sweep final MTV Movie Award nominations for “New Moon”, fewer for other films

By Kim Palacios

In my article about early MTV Movie Award nominations, it seemed the three principal Twilight stars had a few shots apiece at wins for multiple films. Based on this morning’s announcements of the final nominees, they’ve shown well—but mostly for “New Moon”.

The one category in which Rob, Kristen and Taylor did well for multiple films was that of “Best Kiss”. Receiving the final round nod were Taylor Swift & Taylor Lautner for “Valentine’s Day”, Kristen Stewart & Dakota Fanning for “The Runaways”, and Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart for “New Moon” (notably, Emilie de Ravin & Robert Pattinson for “Remember Me”, didn’t make the final cut).

But, the luck stopped there—in almost all other categories, final nods were earned for “New Moon” but not the stars’ other films.

In the “Best Female Performance”, Kristen Stewart got the voting round nomination for “New Moon” but not for her other early contender, “The Runaways”. Similarly, both Rob and Taylor got final round nominations for “Best Male Performance”, but Rob’s early nom for “Remember Me” didn’t carry to the second round.

Onto “Best Movie”: predictably, “New Moon” was a finalist. But, “The Runaways” lost out in the second round. At least the “New Moon” actors swept the “Global Superstar” category. Not only did Rob, Kristen, and Taylor all see their early round nomination carry through to the finals—Kristen is also the only woman to appear as voting round nominee in the category.

And don’t forget Anna Kendrick! She got the final nod for “Best Breakout Star” for her performance in “Up in the Air”.
