Teen Choice Awards - Twilight Whirl Wins
Reports and images were flooding in all day about the winners of the Teen Choice Awards and I was mystified as it was airing this evening. How did they know? I'm so used to awards shows being live, but this one - not so much. Although the official site has not been updated with the winners, the word is that Twilight won 11 awards (which isn't possible if you check out the nominations list). Twilight won 10 awards and Robert Pattinson won an award for 'Choice Male Hottie' and although I'm sure that there is a Twilight effect in effect the award itself is all his own.

Before the Dawn: A Twilight Podcast - Episode 16, Newsy Goodness
Before the Dawn: A Twilight Podcast - Episode 16 is up, you can listen to Marina & I's discuss current Twilight news from casting to comics and comparison of character images between Twilight and New Moon which you can see directly on the site. Heads up for anyone who hasn't read Breaking Dawn, we discuss the plot pretty frankly so if your are spoiler sensitive take note! We also got into some details of the TV show The Tudors. Amazing how that keeps cropping up.
Priests? I thought we were talking vamps! We are! They two combine in the upcoming film Priest starring Paul Bettany and Cam Gigandet. Check out the poster, which doesn't quite give any vampy feeling yet but I'm sure it will. Great colour story and intensity, look forward to seeing more! Priest is set to be released August 13, 2010.
