Twilight Eclipse snags 11 MTV Movie Award nominations, including 2 for Best Kiss
Team Edward beware – Team Jacob has a shot at the Best Kiss award this year too and the competition will be fierce! This is the first time in MTV Movie Award history that one person (Kristen Stewart) has garnered two nominations for a single category from the same film. Happily, that means double the smooch time during the award clips for Twilight fans.
Below is the nominee list for the Best Kiss. I wanted to list ALL the categories Eclipse is nominated for but there are just WAY too many nominees! MTV is apparently more lenient with their nominee list than the Oscars…
Who do you think should win? GO VOTE at MTV.com!
Amanda Crew & Zac Efron – ‘Charlie St. Cloud’
Amanda Seyfried & Shiloh Fernandez - ’Red Riding Hood
Amy Adams & Mark Wahlberg - ’The Fighter’
Angelina Jolie & Johnny Depp - ’The Tourist’
Anne Hathaway & Jake Gyllenhaal - ’Love and Other Drugs’
Drew Barrymore & Justin Long - ’Going the Distance’
Ellen Page & Joseph Gordon-Levitt - ’Inception’
Emily Blunt & Matt Damon - ’The Adjustment Bureau’
Emma Stone & Penn Badgley - ’Easy A’
Emma Watson & Daniel Radcliffe - ’Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1′
Jennifer Aniston & Adam Sandler - ’Just Go with It
Jim Carrey & Ewan McGregor - ’I Love You Phillip Morris’
Jonah Hill & Russell Brand - ’Get Him to the Greek’
Katherine Heigl & Josh Duhamel - ’Life as We Know It’
Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson - ’The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’
Kristen Stewart & Taylor Lautner - ’The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’
Lyndsy Fonseca & Aaron Johnson - ’Kick-Ass’
Minka Kelly & Cam Gigandet - ’The Roommate’
Natalie Portman & Ashton Kutcher - ’No Strings Attached’
Natalie Portman & Mila Kunis - ’Black Swan’
Notice Emma Watson & Dan Radcliffe are in there – that was a surprise for me until I remembered the scene with the horcrux amulet, and then I remembered how steamy it was! I don’t think it can contend with Eclipse, but I’m glad to see it nominated. We also have a few guy-on-guy and girl-on-girl smooches in the list, like Natalie+Mila from ‘Black Swan’ and Jim Carrey & Ewan McGregor from ‘I Love You Phillip Morris’. I also really enjoyed the chemistry between Natalie Portman & Ashton Kutcher in ’No Strings Attached’, but again I don’t think it can pull off the award. Personally I think the biggest risk of an Eclipse upset is Black Swan, but with Team Edward and Team Jacob coming out in droves to vote, I’ll be surprised if one of the Eclipse kisses doesn’t win.
Looks like we might get our favorite Twi-hard question answered after all (no, not the “are they”/”aren’t they” rumors, although that’s a close second!): Team Edward or Team Jacob? Well, the fans are about to speak! Will Edward take the MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss honor for the third year in a row or will Jacob finally get his chance to take the spotlight & get the girl? (pssst: my money’s on Edward! That proposal scene was AWESOMESAUCE!!) But no worries Taylor, if you lose to Rob again you still have a chance to take him in the ‘Best Male Performance’ category. May the best *cough*vampire*cough* win!
The MTV Movie Awards will be shown live on Sunday, June 5th and 9/8c in case you want to go ahead and put that on your calendar now… *grin*
