2010 MTV Movie Awards Nominees: What Will Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Twilight win?

The 2010 MTV Movie Awards are coming up on June 6th meaning that Twilight fans are going to be glued to the TV in anticipation of seeing RPattz and KStew. This kind of excitement is palpable perhaps in light on last year’s events at the MTV Movie Awards when Rob and Kristen had that epic moment on stage for their “Best Kiss” award win. Remember how that went down? Rob announces he needs to remove his gum, fans start screaming in the audience, Rob goes in for the kill, and Kristen moves away at the last second – epic!

This year, Twilight is back with many nominations for the New Moon cast, as well as a couple of other nominations for Twilight actors such as Taylor Lautner in Valentine’s Day, Anna Kendrick in Up in the Air, and Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning in The Runaways. Twilight has garnered 11 nominations this year in total (including projects from Twilight cast members) and let’s face it – it’s very likely to clean up this year based on how well New Moon was received by the fandom.

Check out the full list of nominees for the 2010 awards show below. I’ve bolded/starred any Twilight-related nominees…

It’s likely we’ll be seeing Twilight cast members repeatedly taking to the stage to receive MTV Movie Awards on the 6th, but which awards are the most likely to be won? Here’s my two cents on what the likely wins will be for our amazing Twilight cast members and their projects…

Amy’s picks for Twilight wins at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards:

  • Best Movie – New Moon: Highly likely to win for obvious reasons.
  • Best Male Performance – Taylor Lautner, New Moon: This was Taylor’s movie and I feel like he truly deserves the award on this one. He stepped up for New Moon and showed the fans he belongs in the The Twilight Saga as Jacob Black.
  • Best Female Performance – Kristen Stewart, New Moon: I’m going to go ahead and say she’s likely to get this one.. I hope she does. I’m a huge KStew fan and like I said above, this is Taylor and Kristen’s movie, it’s all them. I’d love to see them both win for these awards.
  • Best Kiss – Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning OR Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart: It’s got to be one of those two pairings for the win. Last year Rob and Kristen won this exact award, and this year they are likely to win again. Then again, people loved the DakotaStew lip-lock in The Runaways so it could go either way.
  • Best Breakout Star – Anna Kendrick: She got the Oscar nod, and she stands a good chance of getting recognized with MTV. Lots of strong contenders in this category but I think the fans will vote for Anna because not only does she have fans of Up in the Air voting, but she has the entire Twilight fandom voting too so it’s likely she’ll win.
  • Global Superstar – Robert Pattinson: I’m going to go with RPattz on this one. I kind of want Kristen to win it, but Rob is the most likely. He is the superstar of Twilight so the award is kind of fitting for him.

Don’t forget to tune in to watch the MTV Movie Awards on June 6th and see what Twilight will take home. Voting is now open on the MTV website so go and vote for our amazing Twilight stars!

New Moon DVD Release: New Moon Shopping At Walmart

So after debating and stressing about the New Moon dvd release, I decided on the standard New Moon 2 Disc Special Edition from Walmart. I was busy last night downtown and couldn’t make it to a New Moon release party, so a shopping trip to Walmart this morning was in order.

It was hilarious last night though – I kept seeing people peeking into HMV and Chapters around 9:00pm trying to be discreet and failing so badly. Come on, we all know you couldn’t wait to get in there! Anyway, I headed to Walmart this morning and they had a fair amount of Twilight stuff set up. The cool thing about Walmart’s edition of New Moon is that you get a free New Moon movie poster inside the dvd.

Walmart’s New Moon dvd also comes with a 3d hologram cover featuring Edward, Bella, and Jacob. I’m not sure where else you can get this cover but it’s pretty cool!

The other popular destination for purchasing New Moon last night/today seems to be BestBuy where you can get the steel tin casing and the Edward doll. It was tempting, but I decided I have enough merchandise to open my own Twilight store/museum so I stuck with Walmart to avoid excess shopping. It was pretty bad I managed to find a 2/$10 dvd bin despite my efforts to avoid all other shopping and almost bought Zathura because of KStew – you know you have problems when…

If you’re shopping for New Moon in the Vancouver area, and you’re addicted to all of the crazy merch Summit keeps rolling out: Walmart is carrying a bunch of Twilight T-shirts, New Moon bedding, New Moon blankets, New Moon pillow cases. They are also selling the Twilight graphic novel based on Stephenie Meyer’s first Twilight installment.

Happy Shopping this weekend Twilighters! Check back tonight for my review of KStew and DFann in “The Runaways.”

Where To Buy New Moon On DVD In Canada

New Moon is coming out on dvd this Saturday March 20th, and a lot of Twilight fans seem to be wondering where the best place to buy it will be. I live in Vancouver, BC so I’ll be posting the options that should be available here and anywhere else in Canada.

  • HMV – New Moon (2 Disc Special Edition) for $19.99. HMV doesn’t list any kind of product details for the dvd so I’m assuming it is the standard 2 Disc New Moon Special Edition
  • Future Shop – New Moon (2 Disc Special Edition) for $17.99. Same dvd as the one HMV will be selling I am assuming, and it is a bit cheaper! – New Moon (Future Shop Exclusive Steelbook) for $22.99. This one is a bit more expensive, has same features as the Special Edition, but comes with steel casing.
  • Best Buy – New Moon (2 Disc Special Edition) for $19.99. Once again the standard dvd, but they also have a cool offer for a bit more. – New Moon (Best Buy Exclusive) for $26.99. The Best Buy exclusive includes the dvd, special casing, and an Edward Cullen doll! (lame for some, exciting for others)
  • Chapters – New Moon (2 Disc Special Edition) for $27.00. This is what they list as the online price. I have no idea why it is so much and I’m thinking it’s going to be cheaper in store.. it should be!
  • Walmart – The Canadian site doesn’t list any prices, but they do list the New Moon Ultimate Fan Edition dvd. On the US site this is listed for $24.96 so it will be a similar price in Canada. The Ultimate Fan Edition includes footage from Eclipse.

These are my suggestions for the best places to pick up New Moon on Saturday a.m. (either at midnight if you’re crazy like me, or a more reasonable hour of the day if you’re normal).

Also, a couple of cool details to share with you. The Chapters location in downtown Vancouver is reportedly having a midnight release party with games/quizzes/movie screening/and of course shopping options. Future Shop stores across Canada will also be hosting ‘midnight madness’ New Moon release parties.

Also, Walmart in the States will be opening Twilight kiosks in their stores once New Moon is on sale and you’ll be able to buy tons of merch. I don’t know for sure if this is also happening in Canada Walmart locations, but it may be worth driving over and checking it out sometime on Saturday.
