There couldn’t have been much doubt that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart would win the Best Kiss award for their smooch in “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.” After all, this is a fan-voted award, and after last year’s almost-kiss the focus seemed to be less on “Will they win?” and more on “Will they kiss?”
Well, they did. But they didn’t give it up easy.
Neither Stewart nor Pattinson looked shocked when their win was announced, but Stewart (rather comically) stumbled a bit when she when she got up from her seat. She turned and gave him an embarrassed half-hug, which should have tipped viewers off to the fact that, yes, they would give fans what they have been so anticipating for years.
Pattinson accepted the award, saying, “Thanks a lot guys, there was very stiff competition this year. It’s really nice to win it two years in a row.”
The crowd started shouting, but Stewart calmed the excitement by saying, “To be perfectly honest with you, it takes a lot of smoke and mirrors to make us look good kissing.” Just when it seemed like they were going to let fans down a second year in a row, she surprised everyone by saying, “We’ll give it a shot.”
That “shot” consisted of several obviously fake, sort of awkward “attempts” at kissing, and Stewart said after two mishaps that “we probably shouldn’t do this right now.” At that point, Pattinson grabbed her, spinning his back to the camera, and kissing her quickly on the lips.
It took only half a second for Stewart to push Pattinson away, and while he looked a bit dazed and giddy after the kiss — almost like it was supposed to go longer? — Stewart quickly thanked the audience and the two walked offstage.
While the kiss still didn’t answer the question of whether Robsten are an actual item, one thing is certain after their performance: They’re a shoo-in for winning Best Kiss again for “Eclipse.” After all, what will happen onstage next year?
