Polls: Will 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse' sweep the MTV Movie Awards?
"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" is probably a shoo-in to win best picture at the MTV Movie Awards, which will be doled out Sunday. After all, the first two installments of "The Twilight Saga" won the top prize in 2009 and 2010.
But what about the other categories? Is it possible that a bit of "Twilight" fatigue has set in? That's hard to imagine considering "New Moon" and its stars swept all five of its MTV Movie Award categories last year: best film, male performance (Robert Pattinson), female performance (Kristen Stewart), kiss (Pattinson and Stewart) and global superstar (Pattinson). It lost only two nominations and those were in categories where one "Twilight" contender beat another. (Pattinson crushed Taylor Lautner for best actor and Stewart for global superstar.)
Stewart has won best actress here for the last two years, but her loss to Pattinson in the superstar race suggests she might be vulnerable. She faces a major challenge in the lead actress contest from recent Oscar champ Natalie Portman in "Black Swan," which is so popular that it's also up for best picture at the MTV Movie Awards.
