“New Moon” and its actors sweep the 2010 MTV Movie Awards with wins in all nominated categories
By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: The results are in for the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, and The Twilight Saga did it again: “New Moon” and its actors pulled off wins in all five categories for which the film or its actors were nominated. Best Female Performance, Best Male Performance, Global Superstar, and Best Kiss were all won by “New Moon” actors. And, the film itself won the biggest award of the evening, Best Movie.>
As reported previously, the Twilight actors were competing against one another or themselves in most categories awarded to individual actors. Such was the case for Global Superstar (for which Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner all competed), Best Male Performance (for which Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner both competed), and Best Kiss (for which Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson competed for “New Moon” simultaneously to Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning competing for “The Runaways”). Though there were winners and losers, the Twilight franchise always came out on top.
So, who were the individual winners? Kristen Stewart won for Best Female Performance, Robert Pattinson for both Best Male Performance and Global Superstar, and Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson for Best Kiss. Beyond the “New Moon” win for Best Movie, a sixth award was won for Twilight Saga actor, Anna Kendrick, for her performance not in “New Moon” but for “Up in the Air”.
Other memorable moments for Twilight fans included another world premiere “Eclipse” clip, quirky acceptance speeches, and more spots featuring Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, and Les Grossman. There was also a fair amount of Twilight banter among other of the show’s presenters. Stay tuned for more on that tomorrow…
