Filed under “Things We Totally Saw Coming,” Twilight fans are refusing to watch the 2013 MTV Movie Awards this weekend due to the lack of nominations the saga garnered. In case you didn’t notice, the mega-watt conclusion Breaking Dawn — Part 2 only received one nod at the upcoming ceremony for Best Shirtless Performance by Taylor Lautner.
Since 2009, the franchise has grossed a whopping 24 nominations, 15 of those being wins, so to have one small mention of it at this year’s Movie Awards, which is fan-voted, is a major slap in the face for Twihards.
In a rant on Twilight fansite, BreakingDawnMovie.org, it says, “Guess what I won’t be watching April 14th? Guess what channel I won’t be watching any longer? You know, if Breaking Dawn — Part 2 didn’t win, I’d be fine with that. I get it, not everyone likes it. The fact that MTV didn’t even nominate Breaking Dawn — Part 2 for anything was them blatantly saying ‘we don’t want BD2 to win and screw you Twilight fans’.”
Now, dedicated followers of the Kristen Stewart– and Robert Pattinson-led series are planning a worldwide viewing party, “inviting fans of the saga to re-watch the final Twilight film at the same time together Sunday night while incorporating the hashtag #BreakingDawnPart2Night in hopes of it trending.” Currently, though not trending just yet, the hashtag is a popular topic on the social media site.
