So glad MTV added the Best Line in a Movie cagegory because, "Doesn't he own a shirt?" (Edward) and "Let's face it, i am hotter than you" (Jacob) were classic movie lines.

have a feeling twilight will lose best kiss bc the votes, instead of all going to the Edward/Bella kiss will be split between Edward/Bella and Jacob/Bella.... Im guessing Harry Potter might win. Boo.

is anyone out of USA can vote ? :)
Comment by KristinMoore on March 22, 2011 at 2:02pm
Sorry Bryce Dallas Howard and Xavier Samuel, but I had to vote Ralph Fiennes as best villain.... I've been waiting for Voldemort to get nominated for Best Villain! But I voted Twilight in everything else! Don't kill me!

I think that the best line should be Edward's "doesn't he own a shirt." I Love that line, and I think its a way better line then Jacob's line. Just because everyone always talks about Jacob/Taylor being shirtless. It's so funny :D!!! Team Edward all the way!!!! :)
