Capping a night of vampire domination at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, the fan favorite [movie id=”369195″]”Twilight”[/movie] took home the win for Best Movie, bringing the film’s total Golden Popcorn haul to an impressive five.
At the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, it was a night that stars [movieperson id=”365131″]Robert Pattinson[/movieperson] and [movieperson id=”262629″]Kristen Stewart[/movieperson] did not get much time to relax in their seats, taking the stage for individual wins for Best Female Performance and Breakthrough Performance Male, as well as a shared win for Best Kiss. Pattinson also triumphed in the Best Fight category for his battle with co-star Cam Gigandet. And along with co-star Taylor Lautner, Pattinson and Stewart presented an exclusive, never-before-seen trailer from their upcoming “Twilight” sequel, “New Moon.”
When presenters Denzel Washington and his recent high school graduate daughter announced that “Twilight” had won Best Movie, the three actors, plus director Catherine Hardwicke and many others involved in the picture, took to the stage to accept the award. The audience, of course, went wild with applause.
Speaking on everyone’s behalf after the crowd began to quiet, Hardwicke thanked studio Summit Entertainment, “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer and the “amazing, super passionate fans,” She then uttered an enthusiastic, “Woooo!”
Before anyone else could speak, Andy Samberg closed the show. But by that point, Pattinson, Stewart, Lautner and Gigandet had all had a chance to take the mic and address their fans. And judging by the ferocious applause from the audience, their fans were nothing but grateful.
