UNIVERSAL CITY, California — It was a pair of four-peats for “The Twilight Saga” at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, as the vampire romance not only took home Best Kiss, but the night’s big award — Best Movie — as well.
The flick beat out fellow contenders “The Hunger Games,” “Bridesmaids,” “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2” and “The Help” for its fourth consecutive Golden Popcorn in the category.
Stars Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone and producer Wyck Godfrey took the stage to accept the award from presenter and Stewart’s “Panic Room” co-star, Jodie Foster.
“Thank you so much, you guys, I know I always say the same thing,” Stewart said. “I’ve been promoting ’Snow White,’ and I get asked a lot of questions, especially about ’Twilight,’ which I love. The most common is, like, ’God, you must be so happy to get away from it. You must be so happy to distance yourself from it as far away as you possibly can.’ And I’m like, ’Shut up! What are you talking about?’ I know we’ve been here for a while, so really, thank you very much.”
“We really have so many people to thank, not only for this award but for the past few years,” Lautner chimed in. “But first and foremost, we have to thank you guys. I want to thank the whole entire cast and crew for their hard work and passion on this. Our producers, Wyck Godfrey and Karen Rosenfelt. Our incredible director Bill Condon, all of Summit Entertainment. And I forgot a big one, the creator of this thing, producer and author Stephenie Meyer. I’m so excited for you guys to see the last and final part of ’The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ in theaters November 16.”
