The Twihards Boycotted This Year’s MTV Movie Awards

In case you were living under a rock this past Sunday, you know the MTV Movie Awards aired that night. If you are a Twihard, like me, you were watching Breaking Dawn Part Two along with the rest of the Twihard Universe. This boycott came with the MTV diss that Twilight was only nominated for one award this year. Congratulations to Taylor Lautner for winning Best Shirtless Performance and we love you dearly. From my point of view, it was about a fan base who dedicated themselves to a Saga and MTV welcomed that saga into their network for 4 years just threw us out the door like we didn’t even matter. The same thing happened to the Harry Potter Fans, known as Potterheads, when they were in their final chapter. We felt used and abused by MTV and we weren’t going to stand for it. So thanks to the people at Twilight Poison and Spunk-Ransom.com, suggested that we boycott the Awards show and all pop in our BDP2 DVDs and tweet with the hashtag #BreakingDawnPart2Night on Twitter. The hashtag stayed above the MTV Movie Awards hashtag the entire time. There were reports that MTV had lost over half their viewers that night. In an article by MTV before the boycott was initiated, called the Twihard fanbase ‘brainless viewers’. Yeah, that’s what you say to a worldwide fanbase to keep them tuned in, way to go MTV! Well these brainless viewers kept your sorry ratings up for the last years. You took away our right to give Twilight the proper sendoff that we wanted it to have so we gave it our own. Some of you reading may think it’s ridiculous and crazy and the most of us are a bunch of insane teenagers obsessed over what  you guys think are stupid movies and books. You’d be surprised how much of us are much older. I always say that “Imagination is the key to loving The Twilight Saga.” It helps us Twihards escape from reality, to feel what those characters feel, to experience true love, sacrifice and to fight for what and who we love. We don’t ask you to like Twilight and we aren’t going to force you to like it either but don’t criticize us if you haven’t read the books because then your opinions are totally irrelevant. Image

BIG ‘Breaking Dawn’ News: Producer Wyck Godfrey On Where Two Films Will Split, Bella-Edward Sex and More!

Finally! Someone is answering our most burning questions about “The Twilight Saga“‘s two-part finale, “Breaking Dawn.” ProducerWyck Godfrey recently sat down with USA Today to address fan queries, including where the two films will split, how the honeymoon scene will stick to a PG-13 rating (ooh la la!) and the logistics of the grisly birthing scene.

We’ve long suspected “Breaking Dawn: Part 1″‘s closing moments would revolve around Bella’s transformation into a vampire—whether hinting at what was to come or showing an actual bloodsucking glimpse. Well, Wyck has confirmed our suspicions saying, “We basically want to take the audience through the emotional part of Bella’s journey as she becomes a vampire. The first part will cover the wedding, the honeymoon and the birth.” The first film will end right before Bella turns (meaning director Bill Condon might be able use some of our closing scene suggestions!).

But let’s be honest, we can quibble and speculate all we want about the films’ dividing point, but what we really want to hear about is Bella, Edward and all those feathers. Wyck was quick to emphasize that “Breaking Dawn”‘s Isle Esme sex scene will NOT be something worthy of Skinemax. “It does not become soft porn,” he said. “It is a legitimate and important part of the movie, romantic and sensual.” And really, that’s what we’ve always loved about “Twilight”—the romance. Though we’ll admit the “sensual” part is getting us pretty excited, too.

As creative and complex as the honeymoon scene will likely be, it sounds as though even more thought has been put into tastefully portraying the movie’s graphic birthing scene, in which Edward literally bites their baby out of Bella’s womb. Shudder. Thankfully, the film’s masterminds have devised an ingenious solution: It will be seen through Bella’s eyes. “She is looking through the haze, experiencing pain and everything rushing around her,” Wyck explained. “We only see what she sees.” In my mind, I’m envisioning something similar to Bella’s vampire venom-induced hallucinations from “Twilight.” Now, if only Robert Pattinson could be the soundtrack to this painful moment!
