Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will be at the upcoming MTV Movie Awards in L.A. Not only will they be showing their faces, but...
The trio will once again hit the stage together to introduce a never-before-scene from Eclipse. The three did the same for New Moon at last year's Movie Awards and MTV's Video Music Awards in September.
After the first Twilight flick swept last year's Movie Awards with wins for best movie, best female performance, breakthrough performance male, best kiss and best fight, New Moon is nominated in five award categories this year.
No word yet if any of they'll be walking the red carpet or sitting together in the audience.
Hosted by funny man Aziz Ansari, the golden popcorn trophies will be handed out during a live telecast on June 6 from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, Calif.
Previously announced presenters included Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Jonah Hill, Jessica Biel, Anna Kendrick, Olympian Shaun White and Sean "Diddy" Combs.
And from MTV
You didn't think we were going to have a vampire-less 2010 MTV Movie Awards, did you? That there'd be no werewolf sniffing out the Golden Popcorn? No beautiful high school girl from Forks, Washington, smiling shyly at the crowd?
Like we'd do that to you! "Twilight"-verse, prepare, because Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will be appearing live and in-house at the Movie Awards on Sunday, June 6, to introduce an exclusive clip from "Eclipse."
Just let that soak in for a minute, OK? Because there's more. "Twilight" franchise co-star Chaske Spencer (Sam Uley) will be MTV International's official red-carpet correspondent, reporting live from the scene outside the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, where some of Hollywood's biggest names will be stopping by to chat.
This marks the third year in a row that the Movie Awards are bringing you fresh "Twilight" footage. In 2008, the MTV News preshow brought you the first sneak peek at a scene from the original vampire flick. The next year, we premiered an exclusive expanded trailer for "New Moon." And come June 6, Pattinson, Stewart and Lautner will be bringing you a never-before-seen clip from "Eclipse," which hits theaters on June 30.
It'll be a big evening for the "Twilight" kids. "New Moon" is up for five nominations: Best Movie, Best Female Performance (Stewart), Best Male Performance (Pattinson and Lautner), Best Kiss (Stewart and Pattinson) and Global Superstar (Stewart, Pattinson and Lautner). Fan voting in all of these categories is now under way at MovieAwards.MTV.com and will stay open through Saturday, June 5. But voting for Best Movie will stay open throughout the awards show itself, which means you'll have a chance to affect the night's biggest prize until the very last minute.
Hosted by Aziz Ansari, the Movie Awards air live on Sunday, June 6, at 9 p.m. ET. Christina Aguilera is to perform a song from new album Bionic, while Katy Perry will take the stage for a rendition of her summer anthem, "California Gurls." Confirmed presenters include Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Zac Efron, Jonah Hill, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Steve Carell, Miranda Cosgrove, Shaun White, Vanessa Hudgens, Sean "Diddy" Combs, the cast of "The Grown Ups" (Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider), Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Anna Kendrick, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Aubrey Plaza.
