Can you believe it’s already movie awards season again? We’re talking about the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, of course — one of our favorite times of the year.
The official nominees list is out and full of fun new additions in category, performance and movie form. As in the past three years, “Twilight” is nominated in two areas that the fan-favorite franchise has dominated: Best Kiss and Best Movie.
This week’s Twilight Tuesday is all about analyzing what will go down live on the awards show Sunday, June 3, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, particularly with the history of “Twilight” and the Best Kiss category, which three-time winners Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will likely continue to rule with their “Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ smooch.
Their competitors this year are actually pretty fierce: Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone (“Crazy, Stupid, Love.”), Rupert Grint and Emma Watson (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2″), Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson (“The Hunger Games”), and Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum (“The Vow”).
Stiff competition or not, because Stewart and Pattinson have such a seriously dedicated fanbase and a great track record with both their Movie Awards appearances and award acceptances, we’re betting the odds are in their favor. It all started back in 2009, when Stewart and Pattinson took home the golden popcorn for their first onscreen kiss as beloved characters Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. It was all about the art of the tease back then, as the two stars didn’t actually kiss during their acceptance.
In 2010, they came back ready to play and treated fans to a wisp of a kiss after their win. Then, last year, Pattinson brought the house down when he stormed into the audience to plant a wet one on co-star Taylor Lautner.
We’re not ones to count chickens before they hatch, but what might Stewart and Pattinson do this year if they win? Kiss other co-stars? Kiss each other and all of the Cullen family in attendance?
