David Slade laughs hysterically at paps when asked why 'Eclipse' got snubbed by the Oscars.

I think he is just being a good sport and at first thought it was funny and then thought they went to decide.

Although I can't stand her, I think Catherine Hardwick should have continued directing. Out of all three Twilight was the best in my eyes. I am really disappointed in David Slade. Did he really have to laugh at it? No, he could of taken it seriously. But I am hearing great things from the cast about BD. And since SM is a producer of BD, I am pretty sure it will turn out great. The soundtrack was great though. Loved My Love and Heavy In Your Arms.

I think David laughs because he knows the Academy are such snobs and they don't take the Twilight Saga as being a real film (in their eyes).  I think that to these people Twilight is considered a "teen flick" and they don't take it seriously.  Of course, the fans know it is not just that and they can all go jump in the lake! Ergo, David laughs because he knows it was never going to be taken seriously....none of the films ever will be...I doubt very much that BD1 and BD2 will be nominated at next year's awards either. Although, the funny thing is, that they know how powerful Twihards are because they are trying to appease us by integrating something to do with Twilight in this year's show with the "There will be something for the Twihards" surprise thing.

PS: The soundtrack was absolutely awesome and should have been nominated!

@Lin - I agree with you wholeheartedly...however, I loved the Eclipse score...and the New Moon score and the Twilight score..all the music thus far has been fantastic.  But, yeah, they are after the numbers because of the ratings...we should all boycott the Oscars just to show them people power (a la Middle East)...but alas we won't!

i never got the feeling that david slade really understood the "twilight saga".  if you can't defend your own movie maybe you were not the right person for the job.  i still think the only good thing he did in "eclipse" was the fight scene.

I agree with your first comment Eclipse. The 'Accademy' dont see fantasy films as Oscor worthy i read, didn't Lord of the Rings get an Oscar? Not sure. But we all love them right girls? I love David Slade such a fab Director and he is British! Just like was superb&have all of the music from all the films its great!!!

get over it .. truth is its the oscars they dont look at action, fantasy flicks much .. lord of the rings won a bund of technical awards .. not best picture or anything .. the oscars go for more indie or sad drama filled movies except toy story ... Stop the complaining that he's laughing and doesnt care cause to be honest if someone came up to me saying the same thing being a huge twilight fan myself id laugh too cause i know that would be an impossible feet. Just be grateful that they got people interested enough in twilight to even make it into films and get directors. There are alot of other good books that dont even get that.


Im happy with the twilight saga and all its directors , thank you for caring enough to turn my beloved books into movies

I just think Oscars are for those movies that they think are life changing in such a twisted way it sucks :) 

I am glad Twilight films are not like that.
