Twilight conquers at MTV Movie Awards

robert_pattinson_mtvTwilight won five out of the six awards it was nominated for last night at the MTV Movie Awards. It beat out The Dark Knight, Iron Man and High School Musical 3: Senior Year for Best Movie, won Best Male Breakthrough Performance for Robert Pattinson; Best Female Performance for Kristen Stewart; Best Kiss for Pattinson and Stewart; and Best Fight Scene for Pattinson and Cam Gigandet. It was also nominated for Best Song, but that award went to Miley Cyrus for “The Climb,” from Hannah Montana: The Movie.

Best Male Performance went to Zac Efron  and Best Female Breakthrough Performance went to his co-star, Ashley Tisdale, for their work in High School Musical 3: Senior Year. Slumdog Millionaire, which also had six nominations, was left empty-handed.

    Wow… I didn’t mind the movie Twilight but I definitely did not think it was THAT good… oh well. Congrats to the cast anyway.

  2. hmm • June 1, 2009 @ 2:39 PM

    do MTV movie awards carry any cred at all?
    it shouldnt be called the Best Movie award. It should be called the most-popular-movie-among-fourteen-year-old-girls award

  3. ke • June 1, 2009 @ 3:47 PM

    hmm: agreed.

    anyway i started watching the award show but left half way through because it was seriously the dullest and lamest show i think i’d ever seen. it was horrendous. i won’t blame any of it on andy samberg though, who i love, coz it seemed even he didn’t want to be there.

    by the way let twilight and high school musical keep their mtv awards – slumdog millionaire has its Oscars.

  4. Jo-Anne • June 1, 2009 @ 4:14 PM

    haha hmmm, very good…
    ke, I was actually disappointed in Slumdog when I did see it…

  5. tributegirl • June 1, 2009 @ 6:07 PM

    I have a really hard time imagining this movie beating out The Dark Knight or Iron Man in any category. The books were pretty good, but I thought the movie was terrible. Jo, you didn’t like Slumdog? I thought it was an excellent movie, although I really feel for the kids in the movie as their lives dont seem to have improved much.

  6. mandee • June 1, 2009 @ 6:12 PM

    i never watched slumdog, what was it about? i personally thought the name seemed kind of lame so i didnt bother to look into it. i am not surprised that they won almost every award they were nominated for. not because i believe it was better than dark knight, but i think a lot of it was the hype leading up to the movie that made everyone want to see it, and then the books that made people think it was the greatest thing ever. i have never watched the mtv awards, so i know nothing about any of it. what is the voting based on? congrats to the everyone that won. it must be really nice for the actors/actresses in this movie to get such recognition.

  7. tributegirl • June 1, 2009 @ 6:41 PM

    mandee, you HAVE to see slumdog, it is a movie unlike any I have ever seen. In the very beginning, I found it a little bit confusing, but it didn’t take long to catch on to what was happening.

  8. ke • June 1, 2009 @ 7:16 PM

    mandee: slumdog millionaire is an AMAZING movie by danny boyle. see it, please. i saw it at TIFF and it was one of the best experiences i ever had in a theatre.

    sorry to hear jo-anne that you didn’t like it. maybe another viewing will change your mind!

    and yes, anything awarded to twilight or HSM is purely because of their hype.

  9. mandee • June 1, 2009 @ 7:51 PM

    well, thanks for the advice guys. i will probably check it out because the only review ive heard that didnt say it was amazing was joannes lol. i never heard anything about it except when that guy was accused of trying to sell his daughter.

  10. Carol • June 1, 2009 @ 7:58 PM

    Slumdog was excellent. Tributegirl is right, it is a bit confusing at first. But just pay attention and it won’t take long to realize what is going on and how hard these kids have it. The Dark Knight was awesome. Loved it. As for the award shows, I think they all s*ck!

  11. sheldon • June 1, 2009 @ 8:59 PM

    wow can’t believe that won all that stuff, beat out Slumdog and Dark knight, those two are the best two movies I’ve seen.
    Twilight wasn’t even good only won because a hardcore fanbase

  12. Annie • June 1, 2009 @ 9:29 PM

    I loved the preview! but i noticed jacob turns into a werewolf infront of her,while laurent tries to kill her? doesnt she not know he’s a werewolf till later?? I guess they changed it… Can’t wait to see it though

  13. sk8tergirl • June 1, 2009 @ 9:35 PM

    Yeah, Twilight didn’t deserve ALL of those awards. But hey, it’s MTV.

    Annie: I think they just edited it to make it seem like Jacob turns into a werewolf while Larent tries to kill Bella.

  14. mandee • June 1, 2009 @ 10:21 PM

    actually i read something else about the trailer on facebook and it said that when jacob changed it wasnt to kill laurent it was “When you see Jake phase in front of Bella, he is fighting with Paul – not taking Laurent on by himself!”

  15. Jo-Anne • June 2, 2009 @ 7:57 AM

    yes, there were many really good parts in Slumdog, t.g., for me personally, I wouldn’t rate it up there with my favourites by a long shot and certainly never purchase it or watch it a second time…there were a number of movies on that Oscar list that I whought were excellent this year…

  16. Jo-Anne • June 2, 2009 @ 7:58 AM


  17. tributegirl • June 2, 2009 @ 12:51 PM

    I think the reason I liked it so much is because it showed how a lot of people in our world are forced to live, right from the day they are born, every day is a fight to survive so many obstacles. Kind of reminded me that no matter how much I hear people complaining about the problems in our society, we actually do have it good.

  18. lily • June 2, 2009 @ 9:47 PM

    So so true tributegirl. We can sit around having a laugh on a site like this while moms on the other side of the planet lie awake wondering how there going to feed there kids tomorrow…or agonize about how they couldn’t feed them today. Totally agree with you on the value of Slumdog. Like it or not, it made the lucky ones like us aware of all the misery out there.

  19. demigod • June 4, 2009 @ 3:42 AM

    hmm on June 1, 2009 2:39 PM


  20. demigod • June 4, 2009 @ 3:53 AM

    lily on June 2, 2009 9:47 PM

    Makes ME wonder how these women in such dire straits would have them!

  21. lily • June 4, 2009 @ 6:21 AM

    demigod: lack of money to buy protection, lack of access to health care proffessionals providing birth control, idiots like the pope telling third world countries they must NOT use birth control…still wondering??
    Could this be one case where you do not blame the women for horrible circumstances out of there control? Oh yah, I forgot another reason: countries where the law says a husband can rape a wife.

  22. tributegirl • June 4, 2009 @ 2:45 PM

    lily, excellent comment!

  23. Nancy • June 4, 2009 @ 5:56 PM

    Demigod….man, your shovel is getting used alot lately. 😛

  24. demigod • June 5, 2009 @ 4:31 AM

    lily on June 2, 2009 9:47 PM

    Sure, they’re disadvantaged, but you’re implying these women don’t want kids, and have no ‘choice'(word of the week)in having unprotected sex. There are lots of ways to get off without the risk!lol
    The bottom line..even in such poverty, where they (women AND men) don’t have the means to feed/clothe themselves will still opt to have kids. In India? Hell sacred is the family unit there!
    The pope also preaches abstinence.
    Rape cases are extreme, and don’t have a significant impact on overall population.

  25. demigod • June 5, 2009 @ 4:38 AM

    Nancy on June 4, 2009 5:56 PM

    Is that another one of your ‘strong opinions’? At least Lily is making a case, unlike you..chirping by the sidelines.

  26. Nancy • June 5, 2009 @ 9:14 AM

    Hahaha…”chirping by the sidelines”.

    Here’s a “strong opinion” for you, you’re still a SEXIST PIG!! With your “Makes ME wonder how these women in such dire straits would have them!” comment. MEN are just as much to blame as women for the “over-population” as you say. Jeeze, did your mother beat you or something!? Because you sure have a hate on for and like to blame women for all the worlds “problems”….but let me guess…anything good that happens in the world, you probably think that it was all because of men, right? LMFAO! What a crock!

  27. demigod • June 5, 2009 @ 12:31 PM

    You’re the man-hater blaming men for society’s problems, and you’re always playing the woman victim card.
    Whatever happened to ‘state your opinion and leave it at that’? Or does that not apply when your woman sensitivities are involved. lol

  28. Nancy • June 5, 2009 @ 1:28 PM

    I am not a “man-hater” and I also DO NOT “blame men for society’s problems”. In fact, my comments always say that men and women are equally to blame. Re-read my June 5 9:14 AM comment for instance, it specifically says: “MEN are ‘just as much’ to blame as women. So don’t even go there, demigod! You are the one with the gender problem here, not me. Oh, and I also don’t “always play the woman victim card” as you call it. I don’t agree with any man, woman or child who claims to love and care for someone, to beat the crap out of them…example: what Chris Brown did to Rihanna or what my ex did to my kids and myself. That statement as I said, also goes for women too, demigod…so, why don’t you enlighten me and let me know what “woman victim card” you believe I’m playing…

  29. Nancy • June 5, 2009 @ 1:30 PM

    Better yet, don’t even bother because you’re just all mouth and trying to divert your problem onto me…you’re sick. Get some help. Seriously!

  30. Jo-Anne • June 5, 2009 @ 5:56 PM

    you always DO play the woman victim card Nance, from Day One on here…your excuses are transparent…

    instead of constantly bringing your “victim experiences” into every argument here, maybe you should seriously get some professional help…instead of being in denial that you are okay…you’re not…

  31. Nancy • June 6, 2009 @ 12:02 AM

    I do not play the “woman victim card” Jo Jo. So go “bark” (pun intended haha) up another tree! And I am just fine, already had counselling for my “victim experiences”, as you call them and I definately don’t bring my experiences into “every argument on here”…some of the articles which pertain to similar experiences I’ve had, yes I do mention it but I make no more references to my personal life than anyone else on here…yourself included. So, maybe YOU should be the one who gets some help…

  32. lily • June 6, 2009 @ 6:59 AM

    so now we’re mocking victims?

    demigod, that makes me see its the same thing I did when I made fun of you for having a problem with women. I’m sorry. I still think your off the mark with some comments but I shouldn’t have ridiculed you for being lonely (and I’m glad your really not).

  33. Nancy • June 6, 2009 @ 2:45 PM

    Lily, Jo-Anne and demigod will “mock” anything if my name is involved….eveyone knows that. No smiley face here….just truth.

  34. demigod • June 6, 2009 @ 6:56 PM

    lily on June 6, 2009 6:59 AM

    Fair enough.
    Mocking victims? I know nothing of Nancy’s past, and it’s never my intent.
    Now let’s just put all this behind us and rip each other on a newer article -I don’t want to have to check back here 🙂

  35. Nancy • June 6, 2009 @ 7:59 PM

    Well, if you know nothing of my past…which I have spoken of on here on certain articles of a similar nature, ie: Chris Brown abusing Rihanna…which you DID read and state your opinion on my comments of my past…then WHY did you write a comment above saying “You’re the man-hater blaming men for society’s problems, and you’re always playing the woman victim card”? Then, when you’re backed into that little corner of yours again, you want to “put all this behind us and rip each other on a newer article”. So, you say this BS about me, calling me a “man-hater” and the “woman victim card” thing and then I’m supposed to all of a sudden just drop it and move to another battle on a newer article? And you have the nerve to say that I am a reptile with a fork tongue!

  36. tributegirl • June 7, 2009 @ 8:32 PM

    She’s got you there, demigod! 🙂

  37. demigod • June 7, 2009 @ 11:24 PM

    Nancy on June 6, 2009 7:59 PM

    Once again, I don’t know or care about your ‘victim’ status. I’m inclined to believe your ex is the real victim! Go ahead and post more dribble..I won’t get sucked into your endless vortex.
    tg, I’m embarassed for you.

  38. Nancy • June 7, 2009 @ 11:58 PM

    “I’m inclined to believe your ex is the real victim!”

    Wow! You sure do get angry when you’re in that corner. As for you being “embarRassed” for Tributegirl…I think it’s more likely that you are just bare @$$ed! LMAO.

  39. tributegirl • June 8, 2009 @ 2:07 PM

    Embarrassed for me. Interesting. Weird.
