The People’s Choice Awards were last night and apparently the people like vampires. Despite their blood-sucking ways, the creatures of the night won big, and they’d better relish it, because this is the only awards show where “Twilight“ will walk away with Best Movie. This is slightly confusing, because technically, “Twilight“ came out in 2008, but who cares about technically? This is the People’s Choice Awards! The “Twilight“ franchise and
Last night, or rather, this morning, I attended the midnight premiere of “New Moon“ with several Twi-hard friends. I was expecting screaming, crying and gnashing of teeth, but I was let down.
