Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart up against former co-stars in MTV Movie Awards
By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: Robert Pattinson is used to seeing “Twilight” franchise films up against his former series, “Harry Potter”, and his former co-star Daniel Radcliffe up for some of the same awards as he. Yet, for the first time this year, Kristen Stewart will see a former colleague’s film, “Adventureland” co-star Jesse Eisenberg’s recent Academy Award-winner “The Social Network”, compete in the same categories as her film–“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”.
The double-dipping doesn’t end with the competition—at times, Pattinson and Stewart have competed against themselves for a single award. In the 2010 awards, Kristen Stewart was nominated twice for Best Kiss—once for “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” and once for “The Runaways” and in 2011, she has been nominated for Best Kiss with both Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Similarly, Robert Pattinson was nominated for his performances in both “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” and “Remember Me” in early 2010 voting. Twilight Saga supporting actress Anna Kendrick also found both her Twilight Saga film as well as her performance in “Up in the Air” nominated that year, though for different awards (and, both won in their respective categories: Kendrick for Best Breakout Star and “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” for Best Movie).
