The April 14 MTV Movie Awards was missing just one thing: Robsten. After they were shockingly not nominated for ‘Best Kiss,’ the couple failed to show and HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal why.
The 2013 MTV Movie Awards came under fire for nominating Breaking Dawn – Part 2 for only one award, so no one was shocked when Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart failed to show up. Instead they hit up Coachella for a “fun weekend,” and they didn’t attend the awards because they want “to move on with their careers.” Read on for all the EXCLUSIVE details.
Why Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Skipped The Show
“They had nothing to promote, the show is just a big commercial and they had nothing to sell so they decided to have a fun weekend rather then show up to something for an hour and then leave,” a source close to the couple EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com.
“As much as they love Twilight and all that it has done for them, they want to move on with their career and not look back. They want to respect what got them there but they don’t want it to be a crutch.”
Those reasons seem totally fair! Rob and Kristen were not nominated so they had no real reason to go in the first place, and besides, Taylor Lautner — and his abs — was there to represent the franchise.
Rob and Kristen were better off going to Coachella, but was the awards better off without them?
HollywoodLife.com‘s Weekend Editor Andrew Gruttadaro thinks that the awards show suffered without Rob and Kristen.
I’d hate to discredit Rebel Wilson, who did an admirable job in her first time hosting the show, and appearances by Will Ferrell and Selena Gomez kept me interested, but overall it just felt like a different award show than in years past. There was none of that tension perfected by Rob and Kristen that made the shows so exciting to watch.
MTV, Twilight — Rob and Kristen in particular — carried your show for four years and every Twi-hard tuned in gleefully. You dissed the saga and its finale by not giving it the proper send-off it deserved, considering all the viewers it brought to your award show, and I think the show suffered from it.
On Apr. 14, while the MTV Movie Awards raged on, Twi-hards showed their disapproval by starting a viral campaign to boycott the show and re-watch Breaking Dawn – Part 2. I’ll be doing my part and watching BD2 all day to continue this admirable protest, which I fully support.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Were Rob and Kristen right to skip the awards?
