As predicted by moi last year, the third movie in the Twilight saga, Eclipse, cleaned it UP at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. As the winners are decided on by the “general public” (read: those who care enough to go and vote), we can expect the next 2 years to be dominated by Twilight wins here as well. So what’s the incentive to watch? Good question. Before actually tuning in, I would’ve said 1) maybe it will be funny. After all, I love me some Jason Sudeikis and think he’s quite hilarious. 2) How messed up/awkward will that dyanmic Twilight duo of Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart be this year? Despite the hair rocked by the former and the ‘tube by the latter, they always manage for some incredibly uncomfortable moments. 3) A new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 clip (check it out here!). Duh.
Favorite part: JTimbs and my new girlfriend Mila Kunis emphasizing that their completely platonic relationship allows them to do this:
I just wish they would date and be done with it!
Worst moment: I have that thing, that when someone embarrasses themselves in real life or in a movie/book/other fictional situation, I get anxious and fidgety. So enter the terrible, terrible “tribute” that RPatz gave while presenting the Generation award to the always lovely Reese Witherspoon. Gah, this is horrendous and makes me think he might have sniffed paint thinner before taking the stage. Dropping the f bomb for the east coasters watching live was the least of the bad things of this worst moment. Not a fan!
Best moment after the worst moment: Reese rocking her acceptance speech, being adorable and charming per usual. LOVES her!
So basically, I’d go ahead and call this a dud of a show. Eclipse won best kiss, fight, male & female performances and best movie. Seriously? There’s no excitement, no surprise and no question the Twilight kids are either wasted or just total asses when it comes to accepting awards bestowed upon by them by the hoards of fans.
Disclaimer: just because the Twilight movies are basically terrible and shouldn’t win anything, let alone an acting award, doesn’t mean I’m not going to see the 2 part finale (because I totally am).
And here’s the new trailer:
