COPIED AND PASTE
The MTV Movie Awards, a show long on entertainment and understandably short on deserved accolades, is now an entirely democratic enterprise. The public has always voted on the show's winners, and now (literally, right now) you can vote for the nominees in each category. MTV offers many choices for each award, and provides a write-in prompt. Best Kiss, for example, has 22 contenders to pick from, including two same-sex snogs and one inter-species kiss. (I expect the creepy Internet dwellers of America to make Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning winners in this category.)
The field for best movie is particularly funny: "The Hurt Locker," "Up," "Inglourious Basterds" and "Precious" are in there, yes, but so are "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," "Hot Tub Time Machine" and "17 Again." None of that matters, of course, because "New Moon" has the award in the bag; at least MTV had the good taste to keep the Hannah Montana movie off the list.
I also like the idea of Jeff Bridges competing against Zefron, Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson and ... Robert Pattinson ("New Moon" and "Remember Me") for best male performance. One lucky actor will suffer the indignity of accepting the award for Best Scared-as-S#!t Performance. My money's on Leo.
Silly as these awards are, they do serve as the perfect antidote to the Oscars, which seem to get more and more dour every year. This year's ceremony was almost bereft of laughs, even with Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin hosting, and the awards themselves were all about paying fealty to the likes of Kathryn Bigelow, Sandra Bullock and James Cameron. The Golden Globes used to serve as the happy medium between Oscar and MTV, but everyone pretty much dismisses them as the publicity race they most certainly are.
Is the perfect film awards show possible? One that salutes art and commerce, without being overtly pious and self-important? One that has a lot of fun -- because movies are fun, you know -- without being juvenile?

The dust has barely settled from the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, held last Saturday, March 27, yet the nominee voting process has already begun for another fan-voted event, the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. The network will be holding the annual awards show on Sunday, June 6 in Los Angeles, but before the winners are announced, MTV is asking fans to pick the films, celebrities, and movie moments that will vie for the coveted golden popcorn.
Among the favorites to win nominations this year is the mega-blockbuster Twilight Saga: New Moon, which has a good chance of winning the title of Best Movie (after its predecessor Twilight swept last year's show). Academy Award contenders Avatar, UP, The Blind Side, and The Hurt Locker (the Best Picture Oscar winner) are also included in the nominee pool. Based on the popularity of New Moon's stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, their respective films Remember Me and The Runaways could also walk away with nominations in the top category.
The MTV Movie Awards added a new category this year called Global Superstar, which includes such A-listers as Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, and Drew Barrymore. Being this is an MTV event, however, it's almost guaranteed that Pattinson will get nominated. The British actor could go up against his toughest competitor yet - himself - in the Best Kiss category. Both Pattinson's kissing scenes with Stewart (in New Moon) and Emilie de Ravin (Remember Me) are both eligible for nominations.
Viewers will have until Friday, April 9 to select their picks for MTV Movie Awards nominees
OK SO THIS PICTURE I HAD TO POST AND COMMENT ON. I THINK ITS CUTE I BELIEVE I KNOW WHAT SCENE THIS IS BUT I WILL NOT SPOIL IT. ROB IS FERICE IN THIS PICTURE OBLIVIOUSLY REJECTING HER. I CANT WAIT FOR THIS MOVIE. THIS SHOULD BREAK HIM THROUGH. ALTHOUGH REMEMBER ME SHOULD HAVE BUT I STOPPED SEEING ROBERT PATTINSON AS EDWARD CULLEN THE DAY I WAS LITTLE ASHES WHERE HE PLAYS A SECERTLY GAY FAMOUSE SPANIS PAINTER SALVADOR DALI. FROM ALL THE MOVIES I HAVE SEEN HIM IN FROM THE BAD MOTHER'S HANDBOOK TO REMEMBER ME I HAVE SEEN HIM GROW AS AN ACTOR. HE WILL BE A LEGEND. HE IS NOW FOR BEING THE MOST LOVED VAMPIRE EDWARD CULLEN IN THE TWILIGHT FILMS. I HOPE THAT HIS FANS WILL ALWAYS BE DEVOTED TO HIM AS AN ACTOR AND NOT AS EDWARD CULLEN. I KNOW I WILL BE. SO GOOD LUCK ROB I LOVE YA WORK AND I HOPE LIFE GIVES YOU WHAT YOUR SEEKING FOR.

March 29, 2010 -- The Robert Pattinson in Budapest video was released yesterday. Only 24 hours later and the video is one of the hottest 'Twilight' updates for the actor. Twitter.com and Facebook have fans talking of this short video that was somehow shot on set for the movie 'Bel Ami.'
The video isn't a production of the movie, but it is a glimpse into the current work of Robert Pattinson. Seen in full hair, makeup and outfit, it appears that he was either shooting of had just come off of a shot for the film. The actor is seen talking to the crew and another person who appears to be dressed in the time period for the film.
Robert Pattinson fans definitely will be seeing more of Robert Pattinson as the new movie, Twilight Eclipse will be coming out on June 30, 2010 and he is scheduled to work in Los Angeles starting in May.
