The 2010 People's Choice Awards last night on CBS allowed you, the viewer, to pick your favorites from the past year, and it was no surprise that The Twilight Saga was the big winner, taking home four awards.
The series, based on the books by Stephenie Meyer, won for Favorite Movie, Favorite Franchise, Favorite On-Screen Team for Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, and Lautner also took home the award for Favorite Breakout Movie Actor. It beat out such films as Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Transformers 2, The Hangover, and Star Trek.
The Twilight Saga wasn't the only vampire series that won last night, though. Televisions The Vampire Diaries took home the award for Favorite New TV Drama, and the HBO series True Blood won for Favorite TV Obsession. The only three categories the vampires didn't conquer was Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show, Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Breakout Movie Actress, which surprisingly enough, went to Supernatural, Sandra Bullock and Miley Cyrus. Who said that people are predictable?
Oddly enough, the vampires, or at least the actors that play them, seemed to be almost non-existent last night. None of the cast for The Vampire Diaries was present, and The Twilight Saga was represented by Taylor Lautner, who plays a werewolf, and Kellan Lutz, who plays vampire Emmett Cullen. That had to be a bit of a disappointment for the droves of teenage girls lining the balcony at the Nokia Center in Los Angeles.
All-in-all though, it was a pretty good night for The Twilight Saga, and while it may come as no surprise that they were the big winners, it will be interesting to see what happens to the vampires next year, since 2010 is already filling up with werewolves and angels on the big screen.
