The 2013 MTV Movie Awards nominees were released today, Mar. 6, and I see one GLARING omission. How the heck did they forget Rob and Kristen for Best Kiss!?
Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart — Totally Snubbed!
I’m writing this because I can barely speak — I’m that surprised. This is like if Daniel Day Lewis didn’t get nominated for an Oscar for his role in Lincoln. This is like if the NBA had told Michael Jordan in 1998 that he wasn’t allowed to play anymore.
Because Rob and Kristen are literally the Michael Jordans of the MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss category. The couple has won the award FOUR years in a row! Every installation of the Twilight saga has returned a Best Kiss victory. They should have been nominated on merit alone!
Even though I didn’t think a legacy vote was necessary for Breaking Dawn Part 2, you know, the movie where Bella becomes a vampire and she and Edward can finally hook up without worrying that his overpowering strength is going to kill her.
So yes, the sex scene that even director Bill Condon has praised for its steaminess has been passed over by MTV. How could they!?
2013 MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss: And The Nominees Are…
I’d get it if 2012 was a huge year for iconic (speaking of iconic, Twilight co-star recently described R-Patz and K-Stew as such) kisses — but it wasn’t! I can barely remember half the kisses that are nominated. Not to be a sore loser (which is totally what I’m being), but Emma Watson and Logan Lerman’s kiss from Perks Of Being A Wallflower was epic at the time, but hardly memorable enough.
The kisses from Django Unchained and Ted were even less grand though. And while the smooch between kid actors Kara Heyward and Jared Gilman was incredibly cute, is anyone really voting for Moonrise Kingdom? The obvious winner here has to be Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook. Do you think in their acceptance speech they’ll thank MTV for not nominating Rob and Kristen? Because they should.
MTV Movie Awards: Nomination Conspiracy Theories
I think some sort of conspiracy is afoot. MTV knew Rob and Kristen would win the award for the fifth straight year if they had been nominated. So either they got tired of handing out the popcorn trophy to the couple and decided to pave the way for another winner, or it’s something even crazier. Is it possible that MTV didn’t want to make things awkward by giving a broken up couple the Best Kiss award?
Actually, this is the only explanation I will accept.
How do you feel about the glaring snub, HollywoodLifers? Leave a comment and vent your anger below and while you’re at, tell us who you think should win the award now that Rob and Kristen are out of the running!
