The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has been nominated in the 2011 Saturn Awards for “Best Fantasy Film,” per Variety. Those films which Eclipse is nominated against in this category are surprisingly mostly those with Twilight stars in them as well: Alice In Wonderland (which has Michael Sheen – “Aro”); Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (Jamie Campbell Bower – “Caius”); Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (Anna Kendrick – “Jessica Stanley”), and two others.
Eclipse, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, and a few castmembers have all be recognized in the 2011 Virgin Movie Awards, for better and for much worse. While some of the awards were positive and complimentary, others are not quite as friendly. In the interest of being objective, here is a complete list (don’t kill the messenger!): Guy of the Year” – Robert Pattinson; “Most Wanted” – Breaking Dawn; “Most Overrated” – Eclipse; “Lamest Couple” – Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart; “Worst Actress” – Kristen Stewart. Muse was also a two-time winner in the Virgin Media Music Awards (for live act and best group).
Next up on the recognitions list is the Soundtracks DVD which was released in December. Per Home Media Magazine, “the Recording Industry Association of America, or RIAA, announced this month that the combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc releases of Music Videos and Performances from The Twilight Saga Soundtracks Vol. 1 had reached RIAA-certified gold status.” Apparently, it takes the sale of 500,000+ units to reach this level.
