There may not be a Twilight movie in the nominations for People's Choice Awards but there are plenty of nominees with ties to the Saga.
The most obvious of course if Robert Pattinson's nomination for Favorite Movie Actor. He's got some stiff competition, facing Hugh Jackman, Johnny Depp, Ryan Reynolds and Daniel Radcliffe.
Next, you have Taylor Lautner's nomination for Favorite Action Movie Star. This is a very stiff category and I hate to say it, but Taylor is definitely looking like a long shot here. While there is definitely a lot of action in the saga, the only true action movie that he's done so far is Abduction. Maybe a little premature to consider him an action movie star.
There are some Twi-related nominees in the music category this year. Of course, Bruno Mars was responsible for the first single of the Breaking Dawn part 1 soundtrack. He's nominated for both Favorite Male Artist and Favorite R&B Artist. Linkin Park was a part of the very first Twilight soundtrack. They are nominated for Favorite Band.
Peter Facinelli doesn't just play a doctor in the saga movies, he also plays one on television in Nurse Jackie. That show is nominated in Favorite Cable TV Comedy.
Water for Elephants is not only what got Rob nominated this year, it's also a contender in several other categories. Rob's WFE co-star Reese Witherspoon is nominated for Favorite Movie Actress. The movie itself is nominated for both Favorite Drama Movie and Favorite Book Adaptation. I'm a little worried about it winning on either category simply because it's up against The Help in both of them. That's another incredible movie.
Also worth noting, although only Twi-related when you consider that Rob was in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire...four of the five nominees for Favorite Movie Star Under 25 are from the HP movies. Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton. Chloe Moretz is the only exception. Really strange to think this is the last year HP will be nominated!
If you haven't voted, or even if you have, go vote now! Polls close at midnight!
