At this Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, there is a clear battle raging between [movie id=”364450″]”Slumdog Millionaire”[/movie] and [movie id=”369195″]”Twilight”[/movie] for the title of Best Movie. Both films scored big with moviegoers and celebrities, so MTV News rounded up a bunch of famous folks to ask them whether they’re on Team Twilight or Team Slumdog.
Although most people were fans of both, when it came time to make a decision, it was Team Slumdog for the win. For them, the Oscar-winning film really seemed to capture the essence of what they love about movies. But, of course, there will always be those steadfast, card-carrying Twilighters.
Taylor Momsen: “I would pick ’Slumdog Millionaire.’ It was totally not what I was expecting. The little boy in the beginning was so cute. I couldn’t handle it.”
[artist id=”1624630″]Jesse McCartney[/artist]: “I’m going to have to go with the ’Slumdog’ team. I thought it was a very creative film.”
Jordana Brewster: ” ’Twilight’! I really did love ’Twilight,’ but I really did love ’Slumdog Millionaire.’ So those two. [But Kristen Stewart] is a really good actress. I really love Kristen Stewart.”
Spencer Pratt: ” ’Slumdog’! We love that movie. The storytelling [was really good]. I’ve never seen a movie told in that way. Visually stimulating.”
Heidi Montag: “I haven’t seen ’Twilight’ yet. It scares me a little bit. Vampires!”
Anna Faris: “I love ’Slumdog Millionaire’ — it got its accolades. I kind of root for ’Twilight.’ It was such a fun, amazing movie.”
