With so many chances to take home some Golden Popcorn come Sunday, June 5, things look pretty good for “Eclipse,” especially considering the franchise’s Movie Awards history . Let’s take a look at their 2011 prospects:
The competition: “Eclipse” is up against “Black Swan,” “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1,” “Inception” and “The Social Network.”
Has “Twilight” won before?: Yes. In 2009, “Twilight” took home the prize, and in 2010, “New Moon” won. Will the streak stay alive for a third year? That’s up to fans.
Best Female Performance
The competition: Kristen Stewart is up against Emma Stone (“Easy A”), Emma Watson (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1″), Jennifer Aniston (“Just Go With It”) and Natalie Portman (“Black Swan”).
Has “Twilight” won before?: KStew won in 2009 and 2010 and has her eye on the threepeat.
Best Male Performance
The competition: Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson are up against Daniel Radcliffe (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1″), Jesse Eisenberg (“The Social Network”) and Zac Efron (“Charlie St. Cloud”).
Has “Twilight” won before?: In 2009, no one from “Twilight” was nominated, and Zac Efron took it home for “High School Musical 3.” In 2010, both guys were nominated and RPattz won (he also took home the Global Superstar award). Could this be Taylor’s year?
Best Breakout Star
The competition: Xavier Samuel is up against Andrew Garfield (“The Social Network”), Chloë Grace Moretz (“Kick-Ass”), Hailee Steinfeld (“True Grit”), Jay Chou (“The Green Hornet”) and Olivia Wilde (“Tron Legacy”).
Has “Twilight” won before?: In 2009, RPattz won the then-gender-specific Breakthrough Male Performance award. In 2010, “Twilight” castmate Anna Kendrick won for her work in “Up in the Air.” Perhaps some of that luck will rub off on Xavier?
The competition: Robert Pattinson’s fight vs. Bryce Dallas Howard and Xavier Samuel is up against Amy Adams vs. the Sisters (“The Fighter”), Chloë Grace Moretz vs. Mark Strong (“Kick-Ass”), Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint vs. Death Eaters (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1″) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt vs. Hallway Attacker (“Inception”).
Has “Twilight” won before?: Cam Gigandet and Pattinson’s big fight won in 2009, but “The Twilight Saga” wasn’t nominated last year, when Beyoncé and Ali Larter took it home for “Obsessed.” Perhaps voters will declare vamp fights the new catfights in 2011.
The competition: Kristen Stewart’s kiss with Robert Pattinson and her smooch with Taylor Lautner are up against Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis (“Black Swan”), Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“Inception”) and Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1″).
Has “Twilight” won before?: KStew and RPattz have ruled this category for two years running. Maybe fans will give the Bella and Jacob love a little shine at the 2011 Movie Awards.
