'Twilight' and Rob Pattinson may be doomed by vampire's curse at the Oscars

November 22, 2008 |  2:33 pm

OK, "Twilight" fans -- please hurry up and get over the fact that studio chiefs aren't entering Robert Pattinson or Kristen Stewart for Oscar consideration. Or that they're entering in only two categories: song and music score.


It's not as if other vampire flicks have done well at Oscars past. There were eight nominees for best picture of 1931, but none of them was Bela Lugosi's "Dracula," which was snubbed in all other categories too.

"Bram Stoker's Dracula" (1992) received four nominations and won three: costumes, sound effects editing, makeup. "Shadow of the Vampire" (2000) was nominated in two races that it lost: best supporting actor (Willem Defoe) and makeup. "Interview With the Vampire" (2004) was nominated for art direction and music score.

None of these vampire favorites had any noms at all: "Blade" (1989), "Blacula" (1972), "Van Helsing" (2004), "Fright Night" (1985), "Lifeforce" (1985), "Love at First Bite" (1979), "Vampire's Kiss" (1989), "The Vampire Lovers" (1970).

Frank Langella may be considered a strong contender for best actor this year, but his "Dracula," directed by John Badham in 1979, was totally snubbed.

""Bram Stoker's Dracula" (1992) received four nominations and won three: costumes, sound effects editing, makeup."

Which is pretty impressive - winning 3 Oscars for a vampire movie is a record. Mentioning the Coppola 'Dracula' kind of weakens the author's argument.

He is right abou the lack of acting nominations for 'Dracula' films though -Gary Oldman should have been nominated, and Willem Dafoe should probably have won for "Shadow of the Vampire".

Have you ever thought that maybe all of these movies haven't had luck at the Oscars not because they're vampire movies and they're cursed...but because they're just really crappy movies?

i couldn' believe you.this site real oscar site? twilight movie' effetcs,cinematography and acts very bad.and you say rob doesnt nom because of academy dont love vampire movies.are you kidding.i dont remember you write about johnny depp' or kate' nom seriously not sure now im follow your sites every day.

The Oscars have been getting horrible ratings since a long time being. Plus, we know as fans that twilight isnt oscar worthy film and by any means dont use the actors name when its not about them

As I said in the last post on "Twilight," "Decode" will probably be deemed ineligible because it is the last song in the credits instead of the first. Huge mistake on their part. It's really a shame.


eh, I don't think they should be entered as a diehard fan. I love this movie, but I think the cateogories entered were the right one. Make no mistake--our RP and KStew will be getting nods later on in their career! But not on this project. This project is about ptuting them on the short list for great projects to come!

Stop using their names to get hits on your page. Fans dont expect the film to get any nominations. You are just playing the old trick of using Rob's name to get people hitting the site. Pathetic.
