Twilight makes a cameo at the Oscars

Twilight Eclipse

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: It certainly wasn’t nominated. So, what were scenes from “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” doing on the Academy Awards? They were part of a montage using popular film scenes to parody music videos, a montage humorously introduced by hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco.

The joke was simple: what if one of the main characters in several popular films recorded a single that sung their characters’ woes? The “Eclipse” piece mocked Edward’s jealousy of archrival Jacob during the scene in which he asks Bella whether a partially clad Jacob owns a shirt.

The Oscars parody overlays a brief piece from this scene with a fake song by Edward Cullen: “He Doesn’t Own a Shirt”. Given their track record (indeed, The Twilight films are nominated for Razzies each and every year in which a film is released) this may be the Twilight films’ last appearance on the Academy Awards.

    You would be wrong. Twilight is mega huge and draws viewers AND because of that alone, the Academy Awards (who are hurting for viewers) will utitlize the Twilight Saga popularity… and the only reason you didn’t have Rob Pattinson or Kristen Stewart presenting – was because they couldn’t swing it given their hectic schedule… and if you really want to get right down to it – that little ten second parady on Twilight was the funniest moment of the entire telecast. Come now, Kim – have yourself a clue. 🙂
