It seems only fair that “The Twilight Saga,” which has been sweeping fan-voted award shows continuously since they first hit the scene in 2008, should win the “Most Obsessive Fans” award at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards. Who, Twilighters? Never in a million years!
Ashley Greene accepted the surfboard award, saying, “You guys are so fantastic and amazing and I can’t thank you guys enough for being there for us. I know we all really, really appreciate you guys.” But she knew the real person fans wanted to hear something from — and the real reason they are so obsessive — was Robert Pattinson, and she tried to get him to come up to the mic.
Rob isn’t always the most camera-happy person when it comes to award shows, so he tried to get Taylor Lautner to join him in saying thanks, and when that didn’t work, tried to get the entire cast. Neither were very effective, so Rob ended by saying, “Thank you guys so much for everything. It’s amazing. Thank you very much.”
The Obsessive Fans award was just one of many awards given to the “Twilight Saga” stars thanks to those very fans. Rob and Kristen Stewart won “Choice Movie: Liplock” and “Choice Movie: Chemistry” for “New Moon,” Kristen won “Choice Movie Actress: Fantasy” and “Choice Summer Movie Star: Female,” and Rob won “Choice Movie Actor: Drama” for “Remember Me” and “Choice Summer Movie Star: Male.”
Unlike at the MTV Movie Awards, the other actors in the film weren’t ignored for their work, and pretty much everyone received an award for something. Taylor received “Choice Movie Actor: Fantasy” (sorry RPattz!), “Choice Male Hottie” (press play above to see that acceptance speech!) and “Choice Smile,” Ashley won “Choice Scene Stealers: Female” and Kellan Lutz won “Choice Scene Stealer: Male,” while Rachelle Lefevre finally won some recognition as “Choice Movie Villain.”
Last but not least, both “Twilight Saga” films were recognized at the Teen Choice Awards. “New Moon” won “Choice Movie: Fantasy” and “Eclipse” won “Choice Summer Movie.” Fanatic fans, indeed. This was definitely “The Twilight Saga’s” year to rule.
Are you surprised “The Twilight Saga” swept the Teen Choice Awards? Do you think they deserved their obsessive fans award?
