Twilight Eclipse snags 11 MTV Movie Award nominations, including 2 for Best Kiss

Team Edward beware – Team Jacob has a shot at the Best Kiss award this year too and the competition will be fierce!  This is the first time in MTV Movie Award history that one person (Kristen Stewart) has garnered two nominations for a single category from the same film.  Happily, that means double the smooch time during the award clips for Twilight fans.  😉

Below is the nominee list for the Best Kiss.  I wanted to list ALL the categories Eclipse is nominated for but there are just WAY too many nominees!  MTV is apparently more lenient with their nominee list than the Oscars…

Who do you think should win?  GO VOTE at MTV.com!

Best Kiss

Amanda Crew & Zac Efron – ‘Charlie St. Cloud’

Amanda Seyfried & Shiloh Fernandez – ‘Red Riding Hood

Amy Adams & Mark Wahlberg – ‘The Fighter’

Angelina Jolie & Johnny Depp – ‘The Tourist’

Anne Hathaway & Jake Gyllenhaal – ‘Love and Other Drugs’

Drew Barrymore & Justin Long – ‘Going the Distance’

Ellen Page & Joseph Gordon-Levitt – ‘Inception’

Emily Blunt & Matt Damon – ‘The Adjustment Bureau’

Emma Stone & Penn Badgley – ‘Easy A’

Emma Watson & Daniel Radcliffe – ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1’

Jennifer Aniston & Adam Sandler – ‘Just Go with It

Jim Carrey & Ewan McGregor – ‘I Love You Phillip Morris’

Jonah Hill & Russell Brand – ‘Get Him to the Greek’

Katherine Heigl & Josh Duhamel – ‘Life as We Know It’

Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson – ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’

Kristen Stewart & Taylor Lautner – ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’

Lyndsy Fonseca & Aaron Johnson – ‘Kick-Ass’

Minka Kelly & Cam Gigandet – ‘The Roommate’

Natalie Portman & Ashton Kutcher – ‘No Strings Attached’

Natalie Portman & Mila Kunis – ‘Black Swan’

 

Notice Emma Watson & Dan Radcliffe are in there – that was a surprise for me until I remembered the scene with the horcrux amulet, and then I remembered how steamy it was!  I don’t think it can contend with Eclipse, but I’m glad to see it nominated.  We also have a few guy-on-guy and girl-on-girl smooches in the list, like Natalie+Mila from ‘Black Swan’ and Jim Carrey & Ewan McGregor from ‘I Love You Phillip Morris’.  I also really enjoyed the chemistry between Natalie Portman & Ashton Kutcher in ‘No Strings Attached’, but again I don’t think it can pull off the award.  Personally I think the biggest risk of an Eclipse upset is Black Swan, but with Team Edward and Team Jacob coming out in droves to vote, I’ll be surprised if one of the Eclipse kisses doesn’t win.

Looks like we might get our favorite Twi-hard question answered after all (no, not the “are they”/”aren’t they” rumors, although that’s a close second!): Team Edward or Team Jacob?  Well, the fans are about to speak!  Will Edward take the MTV Movie Awards Best Kiss honor for the third year in a row or will Jacob finally get his chance to take the spotlight & get the girl?  (pssst: my money’s on Edward!  That proposal scene was AWESOMESAUCE!!)  But no worries Taylor, if you lose to Rob again you still have a chance to take him in the ‘Best Male Performance’ category.  May the best *cough*vampire*cough* win!

The MTV Movie Awards will be shown live on Sunday, June 5th and 9/8c in case you want to go ahead and put that on your calendar now…  *grin*

SyFy’s Being Human renewed for a second season

BH fans, rejoice!  SyFy has renewed its American version of the hit BBC series Being Human for a second season.  Fans who can’t get enough of Aidan (the vampire), Josh (the werewolf), and Sally (the ghost) will be relieved to know they’ll get to see a lot more of the humanity-challenged trio next year. 

According to Reuters.com, SyFy’s BH “has averaged 1.8 million viewers so far in its first season, making it the cable network’s most successful winter scripted series launch in six years.  Syfy is also touting “Being Human” as its most female-skewing series to date, with women making up 53 percent of its viewers.”  I’m sure that has nothing to do with Sam Witwer’s tortured & angsty portrayal of the smokin’ hot Aidan, or Sam Huntington’s witty super-sensitive & conflicted Josh (does anyone else want to just grab him and pinch his cheeks?  He is SO ADORABLE!!). 

On a related note, fans of the SyFy ultra-makeup reality competition series “Face Off” will be glad to know it is also being renewed for a second season.


SyFy’s Being Human is a supernatural hit!

SyFy’s new supernatural hit series Being Human is a tale of love lost and lives changed forever, as a trio of unlikely roommates tries to conquer their troublesome natures and just learn how to be human.

Aidan, the vampire, is a 200+ year old immortal who has parted with his maker and coven and is trying to stay on the straight-and-narrow and keep from “feeding live”. (If this series had come out last year, Aidan would have been on my Top 10 Sexiest Vamps & Weres of 2010!  Shame.)

Josh, the werewolf, has run away from everything he knew and is trying to reconcile his new situation with the happy life he left behind, complete with a loving family and fiancée.

Sally, the ghost, has been trapped for the last 6 months in the lonely apartment she died in and just wants her fiancé to know she still exists.  

Being Human is a darker, slightly more edgy mashup of Angel & Twilight, without the love triangles or a new cheesy Big Bad every week.  It’s sophisticated and mellow, with good acting, relatable storylines, striking cinematography, & progressively appropriate music.  Aidan, played by Sam Witwer, is the most compelling character for me.  Granted, I do have a thing for vampires, but this dude can smolder and brood with the best of ’em, and yes I am definitely thinking of our favorite vampire-with-a-soul played by David Boreanaz!  Josh, played by Sam Huntington, initially just appears cute and clueless, but has a knack for making the audience feel awkward and uncomfortable, and still manages to project humor and a deep-seated personal struggle.  Sally, played by Meaghan Rath, is quirky and likeable and does a great job at making you feel thankful for the relationships you have.

This series is better than I expected.  This is a paranormal romance/urban fantasy blog and I’m posting about a tv show that has no foreseeable romance, especially not as its premise, so it’s definitely struck a chord!  I’m not sure why I thought it would have less oomph, considering this is the same channel that hosted the mega-successful, hard-hitting Battlestar Galactica (which I LOVED), but I hope Being Human sticks around for another season.  The series is currently only 4 episodes in, so it’s not too late to get caught up if you haven’t seen it yet.  You can watch full episodes on SyFy’s Being Human website.   Check it out!


Top 10 Sexiest Vamps & Weres of 2010

I know people normally do this at the end of the year, but *I* say it’s never too late to have a “sexiest” list!  Here are my top picks, in no particular order…

 

Alexander Skarsgård as Erik Northman & Stephen Moyer as Bill ComptonTrueBlood

 

Joe Manganiello as Alcide HerveauxTrueBlood

 

Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore & Paul Wesley as Stephan SalvatoreThe Vampire Diaries

 

Taylor Lautner as Jacob BlackEclipse

 

Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen, Eclipse

 

Ryan Robbins as Henry FossSanctuary

 

Sam Trammell as Sam Merlotte, TrueBlood

 

Jonathon Young as Nikola Tesla, Sanctuary

 

 

So apparently I have a thing for the TrueBlood crew.  HBO really knows how to cast ’em, eh?  *wink*  Isn’t that Rolling Stones cover TO DIE FOR?!!  <Yep, that pun was totally intended!> Seriously, it’s perfect for TrueBlood: sexy, bloody, & no-holds-barred (uh, literally)… love it!

To stay off the beaten path, I tried to steer from shirtless muscle shots in favor of professional-yet-smoldering headshots, but that Alcide one was just begging to be posted.  Muscles like that should not be hidden beneath a garment (unless it’s a tight t-shirt, then it’s ok *grin*).  Jacob Black, on the other hand, spends so much time with his shirt off in the movies that I thought I’d switch it up a bit and make him stay decent for once.  Not that we don’t all love the view…

And yes yes, I realize Nikola isn’t a vampire any longer.  This really makes me sad!  He’ll always be a vampire to me, even if he had to settle for the magnetic thing in 2010.

Yeah I know there aren’t any ladies on the list.  I tried to find at least one, but alas, the men were all just more appealing this year.  But hey, it’s *my* list!  Feel free to make your own list and comment it here!  *grin*  Enjoy the eye candy!
