If there was any doubt about the popularity of Twilight going into Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards, there certainly wasn’t any left by the time the ceremony finished. The blockbuster vampire flick and its two main stars walked away with armfuls of trophies, sweeping all but one of the awards it was nominated for.
The movie, based on the international best selling novel by Stephenie Meyer, took home not only the top honors of Best Movie and Best Female Performance for star Kristen Stewart and Breakthrough Performance — Male for Robert Pattinson, it also cleaned up in the more colorful categories of Best Kiss and Best Fight for R.Patts’ on-screen sparring with Cam Gigandet.
The film’s only loss of the evening came to Miley Cyrus in the Best Song from a Movie category. The teen star’s song "The Climb" was the surprise winner in a category that included Oscar winner "Jai Ho" from Slumdog Millionaire.
Twilight also figured into the night’s most awaited moment. No, it wasn’t the Best Movie award — it was the trailer for New Moon, the second film in the saga. After much ballyhoo — including a fake trailer made by the night’s host, Andy Samberg, the actual trailer was aired. Here it is for your enjoyment:
