Though MTV launched in 1981 as a music television channel, the cable station has been a melting pot for popular culture for nearly three decades. The MTV Movie Awards have been a staple for the network since the early 1990s.
The award show aired last night, and The Twilight Saga: New Moon dominated the night. The vampire/werewolf saga took several awards including Best Movie, Best Kiss (between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart), Best Female Performance (Stewart) and Best Male Performance and Global Superstar (Pattinson). Check out the Los Angeles Times for more on last night’s awards ceremony, including a complete list of winner and highlights (and lowlights) of the show.
I’ll be honest — I don’t get the Twilight phenomenon. I’ve read all four books, and I’ve seen the first movie, but I prefer the Harry Potter series. Trailers for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows were shown during last night’s show.
