Next Movie Presents the 1st Annual 'Twilight' Academy Awards

The Academy Awards have to attract young viewers to remain the biggest awards show. That's why they expanded the Best Picture category to 10 nominees, allowing more populist films to be included.

They've also started a huge social networking push, announcing recently that the ceremony will be streaming live online, and named the unlikely young duo of Anne Hathaway and James Franco as co-hosts.

This is all costing the Academy a pretty penny, during a time when movie ticket sales are down.  

However, all they really need to attract younger viewers is "The Twilight Saga."

I am not suggesting that the prestigious awards show should tarnish its reputation by including "Twilight" nominees in undeserved categories. Most reasonable Twi-Hards are willing to admit Robert Pattinson's performance as Edward doesn't quite match up to Colin Firth in "The King's Speech" or James Franco in "127 Hours."


What I am suggesting, simply, is they add some categories where "Twilight" will be a lock.

In a selfless effort to help the film industry, I am listing suggestions for new categories and what movies and actors would have been nominated had the awards been included this year. Members of the Academy should note that these not only allow "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" to be nominated multiple times, but also other popular movies like "Paranormal Activity 2" and "Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1."

Nope. "Eclipse" wasn't nominated for ANYTHING which, IMHO, BITES! Pun TOTALLY intended!! I mean, come on, it HAD to be good enough for SOMETHING!!!
Comment by Aimzers on February 24, 2011 at 2:23pm
I dont agree about adding lame stuff like that but they def need to open their mind to some movies that are more popular with viewers. Half those movies that are nominated had low ticket sales and did crappy at the box office. Whats that say....

...which is precisely why I think it's a fine suggestion, to add some supernatural categories to the Academy Awards! Maybe it's time to revamp (pun intended) the Oscars. Look how many films fall into the categories created by Next Movie! Good idea, Next Movie.

LMAO! The ACADEMY AWARDS? Do you know how classy that is? If Twilight ever got nominated for any Best Picture, Best Actor/Actress, I would die laughing. The Oscars are about film quality, not popularity. Adding these types of categories would turn the awards into this big show like the PCAs. I would never watch the Oscars again if that happened! 

I don't mind our guys present, but for an award... no.

I do think that we might have a chance at the CGI for Renesmee in BD part two, but only because we have Oscar nominated teams and technology on our side.
