'Twilight' Beats 'Hunger Games' at MTV Movie Awards: Fair or Foul?

As expected, "The Hunger Games" dominated this year's MTV Movie Awards. The blockbuster based on Suzanne Collins' best-selling novel won four of the event's 10 primary awards: Best Female Performance, Best Male Performance, Best On-Screen Transformation, and Best Fight. However, it did not win the top honor. Movie of the Year went to "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part I."

Aside from the crown jewel, "Twilight" only won a single award: Best Kiss. It must have been one hell of a kiss. The remaining awards were one-offs: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II" (Best Cast), "The Descendants" (Breakthrough Performance), "Horrible Bosses" (Best On-Screen Dirt Bag; way to go Aniston), "21 Jump Street" (Best Music), and "Project X" (Instant Cult Classic). Johnny Depp and Emma Stone also got special tribute awards. Do you think "Twilight" deserved to beat "The Hunger Games"?

    I'm more pissed that Twilight beat Harry Potter than Hunger Games. Twilight winning anything is absurd.

    The Hunger Games movie was amazing :) Don't listen to that other moron that replied. If you read the books you might be a little dissapointed but I read the books and thought the movie was very good :)
  • JasonVo... alanoud39 2012/06/04 20:22:14
    Read Twilight (doesn't matter which one) then read the hunger games novel (because the book is better than the film) and compare the two, then you will see how much better HG is!

    But unsurprising. When it's a fan-voted awards show, you have to expect that the Twihards will make sure their fap-material wins. Really, though, this a stupid awards show. Any award in which Twilight is "better" than Harry Potter and Hunger Games is ridiculous.

    I don't think that Twilight or Hunger Games should have won. Harry Potter deserved that award.

    'Twilight' is okay. I'm not a hater [much] but 'Hunger Games' is more exciting, has action and characters struggle.

    High school popularity contest, The Hunger games was a good drama, no comparison to Twilight which is not that great.

    Aside from the obvious, Jennifer is WAY hotter then Kristen. VAMPIRES DON'T SPARKLE !!!!!!!! No movie based on that premise should earn a dime !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am realy dont care about The Twilight movies, the hanger game or the avengers. All that I care about is TDKR(The Dark Knight Rises) and this summer it will be all about it for me AND I will go to watch it in the theaters even if I have to go by myself on
    20-july-2012 the opening day (to remind U).
    My emotion was moving around, up and down and I couldn't control it or stop it when read
    {Christian Bale gets emotional while remembering Heath Ledger.} on MTV Movie Awards remembering Heath Ledgerremembering Heath Ledger
    and that was the only thing that I was going to cry about...I mean, my tears was on my eye
    and I couldn't do it, rather than crying and doing that I said:(Rest In Peace Heath Ledger).
    the good people are gone!!

    It also beat Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, didn't it?

    Honestly, I'm not surprised. The source is a channel/station/whatever that contains popular shows like "Teen Mom", "Jersey Shore" and "16 and Pregnant." Look at the audience for who usually watches this channel, and look at the type of audience that likes Twilight.

    It's just so hard for me to pick sides because I love both. I loved Twilight longer, and I've read all HG books in 2 days. I doesn't really matter, to me,it's a win-win situation. The truth is, I have found very little number of people here on the internet who don't make a fuss and actually like all of it. I am a part of all the fandoms that you haters are oh so passionately fighting about. And in the end, there will always be sides. I don't get this world at all.

    I like and love Twilight, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Narnia, Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle, Vampirates, House of Night and for the love of me I can't think of a thing that I don't like, let alone hate. And just for the record, I judged all of these things by myself. I read the books without prejudice.

    I love the Hunger Games (books and movies), but it still has some work to do. Twilight on the other hand, has progressed 4 movies and has had almost no discrepancies from movie to book while the Hunger Games had many. Let the Hunger Games grow by a few more movies and it'll, hopefully, be beating out all the competition.

    I know that Twilight is not a literature masterpiece but it is good . The movie , too .
  • tobe FELINE ... 2012/06/04 15:23:56
    they're fun weekend reads (beach books as some people call them) people get too snobby when it comes to books... Its twilight not War and Peace. People get too critical.

    Bleh. Don't understand the appeal of this frankly rather boring and definitely poorly written story.

    it was for best kiss. hunger games didn't have much of a kissing scene in comparison. breaking dawn kiss

    exactly and twilight got it for best kiss. It was more of a romance.
  • Manster tobe 2012/06/05 15:54:59
    If the win is only about the kiss, even Haymitch in his message to Katniss and Peeta wrote,"You call that a kiss?" ;-)
