None of the ‘Breaking Dawn’ stars received individual nominations this year! Could their reign over the MTV Movie Awards really be over?
I think we can all agree that after four blockbuster installments, The Twilight Saga‘s trinity of stars are practically MTV Movie Award staples. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart‘s awkward kiss back in 2010, as well as Rob’s equally awkward (but also kind of hot) kiss with Taylor Lautner in 2011, are the stuff of legends — so why were the Twilight trinity totally snubbed this year?

Breaking Dawn, Part 1 received a dismal two nominations — none of the actors received individual nods, aside from “Best Kiss” — while its big-screen rival The Hunger Games received eight nominations, including individual awards for Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Elizabeth Banks.
We love The Hunger Games, so we don’t disagree with any of its recognition on this list, but we have to say we’re kind of stunned at some of the actors, actresses and movies that MTV ranked higher than Breaking Dawn this year. Channing Tatum over Rob? Emma Stone over Kristen? Both were fine in their respective movies, but given that MTV’s audience is still obsessed with all things Twilight, we’re really surprised they weren’t shown more love.
The Twilight Saga is huge, like epically huge, and Breaking Dawn was its biggest installment yet. Do you think Rob, Kristen and Taylor deserved to be nominated — or is it time for other stars to get their chance to shine?
