Remember when people would call the MTV Movie Awards the Twilight Awards because of the 15 wins? That certainly won’t be the case this year despite the fact that Breaking Dawn – Part 2 hit theaters this past November.
Twilight fans were up in arms when nominations were announced and the final film in The Twilight Saga was only nominated for one award: Best Shirtless Performance (Taylor Lautner). Arguably, it was one of the best films in the franchise and deserved a farewell from the award show that has put it in the spotlight in recent years.
TwiHards have decided to organize a boycott of the event to protest MTV’s decision, reports International Business Times. Instead of the Movie Awards, they’ll be watching Breaking Dawn – Part 2 that night and tweeting about it using the hashtag #BreakingDawnPart2Night.
MTV decided to install a more serious voting academy last year which likely led to the Twilight snubs. Nonetheless, the series of five films has been an important part of the Movie Awards voting audience and shouldn’t have been looked over.
We’re interested in seeing the changes at this year’s Movie Awards. One particular highlight will be the debut of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer.
Will you be tuning into the Movie Awards or will you be a part of the boycott? We’ll be covering this Sunday’s event to track winners!
