Interviews Galore at Metro News
Metro News last week had a great series of interviews with cast and crew of Twilight. I am particularly fond of the Kristen Stewart interview where she discusses the acting process, there are also interviews with actors Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson and all three actor interviews give us some insight into their take on the characters for the upcoming film. If you are curious to Chris Weisz take into the world, his interview is great covering questions like what his first reaction was, working on a successful franchise as well as covering visuals and music. Nice work Metro! Thank you for bringing us insightful interviews!
Catherine Hardwicke talks Twilight and new director for New Moon
Interesting video from Reelz Channel with Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke as she discusses her book Twilight: Directors Notebook, her favourite line of the film and also comments on director Chris Weisz as the diretor for New Moon. I'm not sure now new this vid is as book has been out for a bit and if you are interesting its actually great from an artisitic and visioning point of view. It's not typed out and all 'this is how we did that' but more along the lines of inspiration, vision and actualization.

Twilight leads nominations at Teen Choice Awards
After sweeping the MTV Movie Awards can we be surprized that Twilight "and it's cast" lead the nominations of the Teen Choice Awards? Well, maybe considering they cover not only movies but also TV, music, althetes and stars. Let's see what the 12 nominations "they" have gotten:
Choice Movie: Drama
Choice Movie: Romance
Choice Movie Actor: Drama - Robert Pattinson for Twilight
Choice Movie Actress: Drama - Kristen Stewart for Twilight
Choice Movie Villain: Cam Gigandet for Twlight
Choice Movie: Fresh Face Female: Ashley Greene for Twilight
Choice Movie: Fresh Face Female: Nikki Reed for Twilight
Choice Movie: Fresh Face Male: Taylor Lautner for Twilight
Choice Movie: Liplock: Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson for Twilight
Choice Movie: Rumble: Robert Pattinson vs Cam Gigandet for Twilight
Choice Music: Soundtrack
Non-Twilight Nom: Choice Male Hottie: Robert Pattinson
Twilight itself can max win 10 awards as Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed and nominated in the same category of Fresh Face Female. I'm surprized they use actor/actress, why not say actor and male/female performance?
The Teen Choice Awards will be held August 10, 2009 and broadcasted on FOX from 8-10pm EST. Neither Canadians nor adults can vote, but check the voting rules to see if you qualify.
