OMG: 'Twilight,' 'Glee,' Miley Cyrus and Taylor Lautner lead Teen Choice Awards nominations

July 13, 2010 |  2:56 pm

Teen Choice Awards Katy Perry"Twilight: New Moon" and Twilight: Eclipse" lead with a combined 17 nominations at the 12th edition of the Teen Choice Awards. And Taylor Lautner, one of the breakout stars of that saga, contends for a staggering 11 awards -- which come in the form of surfboards -- including choice male hottie against his film foe Robert Pattinson and another "Twilight" hunk Kellen Lutz.

Last year, "Twilight" set a Teen Choice Awards record, winning 11 of its 12 nominations, including best drama movie, actor (Robert Pattinson), actress (Kristen Stewart), villain (Cam Gigandet), lip-lock (Pattinson and Stewart) and rumble (Pattinson and Gigandet). Nikki Reed lost "fresh face female" to co-star Ashley Greene.

On the TV front, "Glee" -- nominated last week for 19 Emmy Awards -- earned a leading 13 TCA nominations while cross-over star Miley Cyrus matched that with her bids divided among movies, music and fashion. Winners will be decided via on-line voting, which is underway at the official website.

Katy Perry has been tapped to host these kudos, which air on Fox on Aug. 9. Perry will also be a nominee contending for summer female music star against Cyrus, Ke$ha, Lady Gaga and Rihanna as well as summer song for her hit "California Gurls." Perry is a four-time also-ran with these kudos, which determine winners via an online vote. She lost the Myspacer race in 2008 and her three music bids -- single, album, female artist -- last year.

Poll: Can 'Twilight: Eclipse' win -- OMG! -- an Oscar?

June 30, 2010 |  3:06 pm

The first two films in "The Twilight Saga" didn't get nominated at the Oscars, but what about the third? "Twilight: Eclipse" has the best reviews of the trilogy, scoring 58 at Metacritic.

Twilight Eclipse Taylor Lautner Kristen Stewart Robert Pattinson news

The Hollywood Reporter proclaims: "It took three films, but 'The Twilight Saga' finally nails just the right tone in 'Eclipse,' a film that neatly balances the teenage operatic passions from Stephenie Meyer's novels with the movies' supernatural trappings."

Last year, the Oscars expanded the best-picture list to 10 nominees so that popular films could make the cut. Two made it from the sci-fi/fantasy genres: "District 9" and "Avatar."

The first two "Twilight" movies swept the MTV Movie Awards, but, alas, didn't fare well with other kudos. Their stars weren't nominated at the Golden Globes, whose voters usually embrace sexy new hipsters. Neither film managed to score nominations for tech awards bestowed by the guilds.

So maybe all hope is drained from the possibility that "Twilight: Eclipse" will be taken seriously by any top Hollywood award. Even film critics who love "Eclipse", like Entertainment Weekly ("the movie is compulsively watchable; it has a passionflower intensity"), admit that it's "humorless teen romantic glop." Or is it?

MTV Movie Awards ratings not rising with 'Twilight: New Moon'

June 8, 2010 |  7:37 am

Rob Pattinson Kristen Stewart Twilight MTV Movie Awards Despite including appearances by much of the cast from the night's big winner -- "Twilight: New Moon" -- and the much-hyped debuts of trailers for the latest installments of both the "Twilight" and "Harry Potter" film franchises, ratings for Sunday's MTV Movie Awards were off from last year.

On the main channel, viewership was off by a lot, dropping from 5.3 million to 4.6 million. However, with the addition of sister station VH1 to the simulcast lineup along with MTV2, total viewership was down only slightly from 5.9 million to 5.8 million. MTV reports that total viewership (i.e., anyone tuning in for a minute or more) totaled 16.4 million.The kudocast faced fierce competition with ABC airing Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Last year's awardscast, hosted by "Saturday Night Live" star Andy Samberg, was notable for the staged meeting between Sacha Baron Cohen's butt and Eminem's face, which prompted a walkout by the latter. Each had a project to promote -- the actor's new movie, "Bruno," and the rapper's latest disc, "Relapse" -- and the resulting controversy spiked interest in them.

This year, Tom Cruise of the upcoming flick "Knight and Day" hoped for a boost by appearing throughout the awards in a running gag reprising his "Tropic Thunder" character Les Grossman. He opened the show, was featured in promos with "Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, and did a dance-off with Jennifer Lopez.

Did Rob Pattinson's hair rescue Tom Cruise's career at the MTV Movie Awards?

June 6, 2010 |  9:45 pm

Ah, not too long ago, Tom Cruise was a heartthrob coddled and cooed over at the MTV Movie Awards. Between 1993 and 2005, Cruise was nominated a dozen times and won twice: best male performance of 1997 ("Jerry Maguire") and 2001 ("Mission: Impossible II"). But now that his career looks like it's had all the blood sucked out of it, a vampire swooped down to Cruise's rescue at the awardscast tonight: stud du jour Robert Pattinson ("Twilight: New Moon"). Here's a replay of their memorable vignette.

Gold Derby nuggets: MTV Movie Awards preview 'Twilight' & 'Harry Potter' | EW predix Tony Awards

June 4, 2010 |  5:26 pm

• Sunday's MTV Movie Awards will include a preview of the penultimate entry in the most successful film franchise of all time -- "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1." That movie won't be out till Thanksgiving. However, the "Twilight" series will also be represented with a sneak peek of "Eclipse" which opens at the end of the month. 

• A viral infection may be hurting Catherine Zeta-Jones's shot at winning the Tony Award for best musical actress, according to Michael Riedel of the New York Post. She's missed five performances of "A Little Night Music" while many voters are checking out the shows for the first or second time. However, Riedel adds, "While CZJ may not be an aggressive campaigner like, say, that old master Harvey Fierstein, she has been making the rounds of the Tony circuit. She's appeared at benefits and second-tier awards, schmoozing even some of the scarier members of the theater press corps, most of whom have become bloggers." NEW YORK POST

MTV Movie Awards logoMark Malkin dropped by the Gibson Amphitheater, which is hosting Sunday's kudos and reports on who is sitting where: "Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner didn't snag front-row seats at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards. That honor goes to Sandra Bullock. Even so it's not like the 'Twilight' trio was shafted. They're right behind Sandy B. As of this morning, there was an empty seat between Rob and Kristen's placeholders, so it's still not known if they'll eventually end up totally next to each other on show day. Taylor's a seat away from KStew with Scarlett Johansson rounding out the row. Just behind them are Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens and Eva Mendes. Across the aisle is Mark Wahlberg, who's sitting behind Betty White and Katy Perry. A gaggle of funny dudes gathered in a pod to the side includes Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Hangover boxer Mike Tyson." E ONLINE

• On Wednesday, Philip Berk was reelected president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. A correspondent for FilmInk (Australia) and Galaxie (Malaysia), Berk has been an HFPA member for 33 years and is serving his eighth term as president. The group, which hands out the Golden Globes, also re-upped Hans Spurkel, Meher Tatna and Jack Tewksbury as vice president, executive secretary and treasurer, respectively. The new board of directors is Ali Sar (Chairman), Jorge Camara, Yoram Kahana, Theo Kingma, Lorenzo Soria, and Ruben Nepales (alternate).

Tony Awards logo • Entertainment Weekly theater critics Thom Geier and Melissa Rose Bernardo have posted their predictions for the Tony Awards. While they agree that "Red" will win best play, Thom thinks "Fela!" will take the top tuner prize while Melissa chooses "Memphis." Among the acting awards, the two agree on just two of the four lead categories -- Viola Davis in the play "Fences" and Douglas Hodge in the musical "La Cage aux Folles."  They think those productions also will win their respective revival races.

MTV Movie Awards smackdown: 'Twilight' moonies versus 'Avatar' geeks! Will universe perish?

May 12, 2010 |  4:36 pm
Twilight New Moon Avatar MTV Movie Awards nominations

The cast of "The Hangover" shouldn't bother guzzling too much Champagne to celebrate leading with the most MTV Movie Award nominations (six). "Twilight: New Moon" may have merely earned five, but that's exactly how many MTV trophies the original "Twilight" claimed last year. Clearly, voters love blood guzzlers.

Last year at the MTV Movie Awards, "Twilight" won best film, best fight (Cam Gigandet, Robert Pattinson), kiss (Kristen Stewart, Pattinson), female performance (Stewart) and breakthrough male performance (Pattinson). It suffered only two defeats. Taylor Lautner lost best breakthrough male (to costar Pattinson — only one could win the category) and best song ("Decode" lost to "The Climb" from "Hannah Montana: The Movie").

Just because "Twilight" won best film last year doesn't mean "New Moon" is ill-starred. All three installments of "Lord of the Rings" won the same crown from 2002 to 2004.

But the romp by "Rings" does suggest that a movie other than "The Hangover" might have a shot at besting "Twilight: New Moon." That's "Avatar, which, just like "Rings," was a fantasy blockbuster that broke box-office records. Or, rather, "Avatar" is sci-fi, that is, a genre voters preferred when picking past best films "Transformers" and "The Matrix."

Because winners are decided by Web-based votes, that sets up a fierce cyber war between "Twilight" and "Avatar" fanatics. Everybody, duck!

Check out all nominations here and cast your ballot. See our forum posters' reactions to the nominations here.

Aziz Ansari devours 'Twilight' to host MTV Movie Awards?

March 22, 2010 | 11:16 am

Aziz Ansari Twilight Sage New Moon news mtv movie awards Aziz Ansari just watched "Twilight" and "Twilight: New Moon" for the first time in order to bone up on the film franchise that will probably sweep the MTV Movie Awards again, just like it did last year. But this year Ansari will be involved, according to the L.A. Times blog Show Tracker.

"Insiders tell Show Tracker exclusively that the comedian and 'Parks and Recreation' star is in final negotiations to host the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, slated to air live June 6 from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City," reports Denise Martin. "Last week, Ansari spent a couple of days live-tweeting his first-ever viewings of 'Twilight' and its sequel 'New Moon.'"

Show Tracker recalls last year's award romp: " 'Twilight' swept the evening at the 2009 ceremony -- five awards including the one for best movie -- and stars Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart turned up to present a special extended trailer for 'New Moon.' (With the third 'Twilight' film, 'Eclipse,' premiering June 30 -- and with MTV long leading the charge in all things 'Twilight'-related -- one presumes viewers this year will get a similar treat.)"

See costumes and props from Oscar nominees at the Hollywood Museum

March 5, 2010 | 12:59 pm

If you're in the neighborhood of the Kodak Theatre and can't get into the Oscars this weekend, try the next best thing. Drop by the Hollywood Museum one block away – it's located in the Max Factor Building at 1660 N. Highland Ave., where you can see costumes and artifacts from leading nominees like "The Hurt Locker," "The Blind Side," "Inglourious Basterds," "Julie & Julia," "The Young Victoria," "Bright Star," "(500) Days of Summer" and "Star Trek" mixed in with treasures from Oscars past, like "Gone With the Wind," "Ben-Hur," "Gladiator" and even the first film to win best picture, "Wings."

Oscars Katharine hepburn

I serve as guest curator every year to organize this exhibition titled "And the Winner Is …," which celebrates all films up for kudos throughout the award season. We even feature items from such popular films as "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," "Twilight: New Moon" (yes, yes, we have a Taylor Lautner costume in addition ones worn by Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart) and Miley Cyrus' concert film. Some of them were up for guild awards or even -- yikes -- Razzies.

On display are lots of actual historic statuettes, such as Oscars, Golden Globes ("Ben-Hur," best drama picture; "Dynasty," best TV show), and a Razzie (Sly Stallone, worst actor of the century, award still unclaimed). Also, you can view most of my personal collection, which includes Katharine Hepburn's Oscar nomination plaques for "Suddenly, Last Summer" and "The Rainmaker," plus her membership cards in the academy, Tony Award (best play, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"), Writers Guild Award ("High Noon"), Emmy (best comedy series, "Phil Silvers Show") and more.

Many thanks go to some real winners who pulled this exhibit together: museum president and founder Donelle Dadigan and her team Steve Nycklemoe, Kenny Horn, Robert Freeman and Jennifer Smith. Also the folks at Apparition, Columbia, Fox Searchlight, Paramount, Summit, Warner Bros. and Weinstein Co. who contributed costumes and props, and my colleagues at the Los Angeles Times who contributed sponsorship.

The Hollywood Museum is located on Highland Ave. just a few steps south of Hollywood Blvd. It's open Wednesdays to Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission: $15 per adult, $12 for students and seniors, $5 for kids age 5 and younger. The museum accepts Citipass and Go L.A. cards.

Gold Derby nuggets: Oscars nixed 'Bruno' for host | Dave Karger BAFTAs predix | WGA Awards preview

February 19, 2010 |  3:26 pm

Bruno Oscars Sacha Baron Cohen • The Oscars took pity on the poor ABC censor when they said no to rookie show producers Bill Mechanic's and Adam Shankman's idea to have Sacha Baron Cohen ("Bruno") host the Oscars. As Shankman told "Fresh Air" host Terry Gross, "it would just be spectacular. But I think the Academy felt like not only is it unpredictable but it could overshadow the nominees. Then we immediately went to this idea of co-host." Among the other tidbits he shared was this one about the presentation of the acting Oscars: "We're doing something a little bit different with it, but in point of fact, something like that is going to be done and the way we're doing it has to do with a bit more of interconnectivity because what was really, really stunning about last year the way they did that was the video clip buildup to the reveal of the stars, I mean the editing of that stuff was so breathtaking and so big that when those screens went up and you saw the five walk out, you're just like going, whoa, my God, it was so dramatic and beautiful." NPR

• As well as all those previous Academy Award winners, last year's Oscars also had "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson presenting. This year, the other two sides of the love triangle at the heart of the film -- Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner -- will be onstage at the Kodak Theatre on March 7. Stewart admitted to Mark Malkin that she is very nervous. "I'm trying to pick shoes that I know I won't fall down in." E ONLINE

• "Up in the Air" novelist Walter Kirn will be in the audience after all to see whether Stewart falls. Following his earlier airing of his frustration that he had not been invited to the Oscars, today he tweeted: "thanks to Paramount Pictures for coming through with Oscar tickets and proving true to its word, which i shouldn't have doubted." TWITTER

Bafta StatueDave Karger says, "I've always been a firm believer in the power of the BAFTA Awards to give us an idea of how the overall awards-season winds may be shifting. After all, 'The Hurt Locker' tied 'Avatar' with the most nominations at the BAFTAs before it managed the same feat on Oscar nomination day. But then there’s the BAFTA wild card, 'An Education,' which also scored eight nods." Says Dave, "Avatar" will win best picture while for best director "clearly this is a race between Cameron and Bigelow. I’m wondering if 'The Hurt Locker' might be too American-indie feeling to sway the British voters, but I still think Bigelow will take it." ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

Pete Hammond reports, "Voters seem more confused than ever on the new preferential voting even though the academy tried to diligently spell out specific instructions for members who may be ballot-challenged when it comes to selecting their best picture choices in order of preference. One academy member, a savvy publicist I know who has worked on many campaigns, is puzzled himself by the new process that requires voters to rank the 10 nominees. 'I have read the instructions four times now, and I still don't know what they want from me,' he said in total frustration. 'I have no dog in this hunt this year, but if I can't figure this out, how do they expect others to, especially the older ones used to just picking one winner?'" NOTES ON A SEASON

• And Jack Mathews bemoans the late date of this year's Oscars. "The Academy Awards season, even with a mid-to-late February finale, is far too long. And as it has turned out this year, as it turns out in most years now, many of the winners are known long before the show. Current example: Golden Globe and SAG winners Jeff Bridges ('Crazy Heart'), Sandra Bullock ('The Blind Side'), Christoph Waltz ('Inglourious Basterds') and Mo'Nique ('Precious') have nothing to fear but forgetting people to thank on March 7." MOVIEFONE

Wga-awardSasha Stone delivers an insightful analysis of this Saturday's WGA Awards. Says Sasha, "Since 'Inglourious Basterds,' 'In the Loop,' 'District 9,' 'The Messenger,' Up,' and 'An Education' were all ineligible for the WGA, things are bumped off the rails even more. It could mean that, for the first time in five years, there will be a mis-match in Original Screenplay." She concludes with, "for now, I’m going with 'The Hurt Locker' and 'Up in the Air' for the WGAs and 'Inglourious Basterds' and 'Up in the Air' for the Oscar." AWARDS DAILY

Razzies for Rob Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Megan Fox?

January 3, 2010 |  7:34 am

Naughty Derbyites are already serving up Razzie speculation here in our forums even though noms aren't unveiled until Feb. 1 (one day before Oscar bids, of course). BC insists that "Twilight: New Moon" "needs to be nominated because it is overrated and I can finally say Golden Raspberry Award nominee Robert Pattinson." Adds our poster named kelemenmarc, "And I hope I can finally say Taylor Lautner too, a Golden Raspberry Award nominee."

Beware, "Twilight" haters: The first installment wasn't nominated for a single Razzie in 2008. Oh, cruel Hollywood!

Twilight Saga New Moon Taylor Lautner Kristen Stewart news

Our posters believe the contest for worst actress is a diva smack-down between Megan Fox ("Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" and "Jennifer's Body"), Beyoncé Knowles ("Obsessed"), likely Oscar nominee Sandra Bullock ("All About Steve"), Miley Cyrus ("Hannah Montana: The Movie"), recent Emmy winner Katherine Heigl ("The Ugly Truth"), Kristen Stewart ("Twilight Saga: New Moon") and Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson ("Bride Wars").

In addition to Rob Pattinson, the slugfest to snag the trophy as worst actor involves these chaps: Will Ferrell ("Land of the Lost"), Michael Cera and Jack Black ("Year One"), Oscar co-host Steve Martin ("The Pink Panther 2"),  Gerard Butler ("Gamer," "Law Abiding Citizen," "The Ugly Truth"), Shia LaBeouf ("Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen").

LonePirate asks a curious question: "I wonder if 'Nine' is going to sneak in the (worst) picture category given its withering reviews and lackluster performance. Failed Oscar bait with a big name cast that bombs at the box office is usually prime Razzie fodder."

Did 'Twilight' set a record at Teen Choice Awards?

August 10, 2009 |  6:29 pm

Pattinson-award1

Yes. The 11 victories by "Twilight" at the Teen Choice Awards were a huge leap over the two films that held the previous record: "The Notebook" (eight wins in 2004) and "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" (seven in 2006, one more in 2007).

Among the wins by "Twilight" at the Teen Choice Awards: best drama movie, actor (Robert Pattinson), actress (Kristen Stewart), villain (Cam Gigandet), liplock (Pattinson and Stewart), rumble (Pattinson and Gigandet). See a full list here.

"All the wins were incredible," Ashley Greene (winner, choice female fresh face) told MTV immediately after the sweep. "It's such a bizarre thing to be invited — and then to clean up the way we did? Our fans are indescribable — it's amazing, who does that? Who gets to be a part of that? It's a blast, and it was a really cool show."
