The nominations for the 33rd annual Razzie Awards were announced late last night, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 lead the nods, with 11 in just 10 categories. Ouch. Not that harsh criticism is anything new to the Twilight community, but it still stings, right? Especially when you see the other movies nominated: They’re either big overblown vehicles for giant movie stars that flopped (Battleship, Total Recall), terrible comedies (That’s My Boy, One for the Money) or obscure movies we totally forgot about (Oogieloves, Atlas Shrugged: Part II). Breaking Dawn, on the other hand, was always meant to be a faithful “love letter” for the fans, not critics and not everyone else who’s obviously not in the target demo.
Should Eddie Murphy’s performance in A Thousand Words be in the same category as Robert Pattinson’s last appearance as Edward? Well, we’re eager to let you guys vent about this one.
Here’s the full list of nominations. The “winners” will be announced on February 23, the day before the Oscars. Read more…
Every time a magazine has interviewed Kristen Stewart since the events of July, they interpret every single posture and quote in terms of the scrutiny she was under after her dalliance with Rupert Sanders was revealed. And it’s not like we blame them — it was a pretty big deal. Her cover story for the latest issue of V Magazine, for instance, talks about the “slightly feral air to her presence—she’s jumpy and prone to pacing—but all the anxiety is kind of endearing. She’s young and excitable, and having weathered the highs and lows of 2012, she claims to feel stronger than ever before.” But we would also like to point out something else about this interview other than her perceived vulnerability or “emotional force field.” That’s the fact that her future is wide open, and she’s wide open to it.

Actually, what we meant to say was, watch Bronson Pelletier pee in the airport, because that is fascinating — really, he pees for an impressively long time, while the security guard and cops don’t really want to get caught in the stream — and THEN consider erasing that image from your mind with other videos of the 27-year-old Canadian actor being a little less intoxicated and a little more adorable/sexy wolf like.
For instance, here he is in a low res clip from his first big role, on the Canadian TV show Renegadepress.com (2004-2008). Read more…
2012 has been one helluva year for our favorite celebrity couple, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. They’ve had ups (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 grossed over $778 million worldwide and became the highest-grossing film in the Twilight series) and downs (their relationship hit some pretty major bumps in the road), so we’re sure that they’re ready to toast to 2013 and say adi-f—os to 2012!
To honor a couple, that’s living out a way better story than we could ever see up on the big screen, we’re taking a look at the biggest Robsten moments over the year. Join us as we relive the highlights and toast to a love that prevails!
Calling all Twilight conspiracy theorists! Get your thinking hats on because we’ve got a tough case to crack. As you know, Twi-Werewolf Bronson Pelletier was arrested on Monday for being too intoxicated to fly and drunkenly peeing in public while at LAX airport. Most bit part-ers would gladly lay claim to such a ridiculous tale of Hollywood debauchery, but Bronson is claiming that he’s been FRAMED! You read that right, the actor has vehemently denied that things went down like that, pleading his case to TMZ yesterday afternoon.
The site’s camera crew caught up with Bronson on the streets of LA, where he quickly went on the defensive. Tried to clear up the story by insisting that “some guy” started buying him drinks at an airport bar, and it was this same dude who got him thrown off the plane later. “No peeing … peeing did not happen,” he told the website, directly contradicting their earlier report. He believes that the guy who set him up is a deranged fan. Hmmm, a fan buying their idol a drink or two doesn’t seem that deranged to us, although the thought of anyone being a Bronson Pelletier super-fan does seem a tad off.
Things got weird when the folks from TMZ asked Pelletier about his past conviction for meth and cocaine possession. “That situation was … uh, yeah, no … that did not happen.” This is strange, because that most certainly did happen earlier this month, and Bronson is due back in court in January. “Deny ’til you die” isn’t the best legal defense, bro.
Sam’s gonna have your hide for this one, Jared: Twilight wolfpack member Bronson Pelletier was arrested at LAX yesterday and charged with misdemeanor public transportation, TMZ reports. According to the site, the 25-year-old actor was removed from a plane by police yesterday morning after it was determined he was too intoxicated to fly. He was then asked to wait in the terminal for a later flight, and the police left. Until, that is, he was found urinating by the gate. He was arrested at 2 p.m. and then released. Read more…
Honestly, this is not a question we’d normally ask about anyone in their 20s, but after it was posed to Kristen Stewart in her recent interview with Salon, we think it’s not totally random. Sure, the 22-year-old hasn’t been in wars or living in a commune or kidnapped or anything like that, but neither have some of our favorite nonfiction writers. And as she’s been out and about promoting On the Road, the things she’s been telling reporters make us think she’d have something to say in a book, too.
“It’s hard to say in black-and-white terms, but on some level I suppose I have a unique perspective,” she told Salon in response to how she feels about life in the media spotlight. “I look through a really strange lens at the world because of all this. But it’s no less interesting. I’m not deprived of any bit of life, you know? It would be really stupid to deny how interesting it is to look at the world in this way.”
And here’s what she told The Sun (of all outlets!), when asked how she dealt with the scrutiny following her affair with director Rupert Sanders: “You have to be OK with your own fears. If you’re an honest person you’ll make mistakes, but that’s when the most interesting things happen. I used to just stay in my hotel room rather than deal with everything, but if you get too caught up in what others think you become a really disjointed person.” Read more…
Do you remember that scene in Billy Madison where the kid wets his pants, so Adam Sandler sprays his crotch with water so it looks like he did too? You know, just so the little guy doesn’t have to suffer the embarrassment on his own? We think something similar is going on in the entertainment world sorority at the moment. That’s the only explanation we have for why Elizabeth Reaser and LeAnn Rimesboth suffered wardrobe malfunctions last night: They wanted to make Anne Hathaway feel better about her “devastating” flesh flash at the Les Miserables premiere in New York on Monday! That’s really sweet, ladies.
Elizabeth fell victim to her super short lace mini-dress yesterday during a Breaking Dawn Part 2 news junket in Hong Kong. She revealed a little more than she bargained for as she sat down, but luckily she was able to readjust and laugh the incident off. Meanwhile, LeAnn had a problem “upstairs” when she wore a blazer and nothing else to the NOH8 Campaign 4th Anniversary Celebration in Los Angeles. Was it hot? Yes, but double-stick tape might have come in handy. Head to the gallery below and see what you think!
Around this time last year, we made this list a roundup of our favorite vampires of 2011 — though we named Bella Cullen as our fave, it was Damon Salvatore who ruled your hearts. This year, we took a look around at our favorite movies, TV shows and books and discovered that, while the bloodsuckers of True Blood, Twilight and The Vampire Diaries were still among our faves, they had some competition from other supes, too. There were the characters wielding magic for good or evil — Snow White and the Huntsman’s Queen Ravenna, Beautiful Creatures‘ Lena, The Mortal Instruments‘ Magnus, TVD’s Bonnie. We had a nice crop of werewolves — Teen Wolf’s Scott and Derek, Nightshade’s Calla, True Blood’s Alcide. And then, of course, there were gods, genetic mutations, time travelers and Shadowhunters. Whether they were on the page, the screen or both, these beautiful, dangerous, ever-seductive heroes and villains made us feel a little bit inadequate for being mere humans. But there’s one power we have that they don’t: the ability to vote on which of these 25 characters was our favorite of the year. Take a look at the gallery and then vote!
Lately we’ve been used to Kristen Stewart going all punk rocker chic at public events, but at this weekend’s Governor’s Awards in Los Angeles she reminded us just how glam she can get! K-Stew stunned as she donned a Talbot Runhoff high-waisted dress with a scooped black and white lace neckline. She completed the haute-couture look with some killer Christian Louboutin pumps, but her messily tousled hair gave a small nod to her more casual side. We’d expect nothing less from Kristen! Sadly Robert Pattinson wasn’t by her side at the Hollywood & Highland Center for the 4th annual awards show, but we’re pretty sure she wasn’t lonely. Tons of other big names also attended, including Amy Adams, Helen Hunt, Judd Apatow, Bradley Cooper, Will Smith, and this year’s Oscar host Seth MacFarlane. See who was there (and what they wore) in the gallery below!
