‘Twilight’ To Be Honored At Vision Awards
Team “Twilight” assemble! The new hotness in vampire romances — sorry “Interview with the Vampire” — can’t seem to stop reaping in the accolades. There’s the five Golden Popcorns — out of seven nominations — picked up by the flick at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. And the record-setting number of Internet streams for the “New Moon” trailer, which premiered the same night.
Well you can add another one to the list, because “Twilight” will be recognized as a “film of vision” at the 36th annual Vision Awards on June 27. The Vision Awards are presented by RP International, a non-profit organization that fights the good fight against blinding eye diseases.
Bella, Edward, and the rest of the Cullen clan are in some elite company: Other film honorees this year include “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Seven Pounds,” “Valkyrie” and the upcoming “Inglourious Basterds.” There’s no word yet on how many of the cast members will actually attend the event, but here’s hoping we get a repeat performance of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s almost-kiss at the Movie Awards. Wait, that is if they induct a Best Kiss Of Vision category. Hey, it could happen!
