Twilight has in past years dominated the MTV Movie Awards, with the Best Kiss Award effectively becoming the Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Award, but this year Twi-hards boycotted the ceremony in their droves due the pair not even receiving a nomination.
The snub could have various explanations - last summer's controversy over Stewart's affair with Rupert Sanders and the fact that until recently it was unknown if the pair were reconciled, bosses being worried that due to Twi-hards enthusiasm the show was effectively becoming the Twilight Movie Awards, or just that after five films of Robsten snogging it was thought that someone else deserved a turn.
Yet the move enraged Twilight fans, despite Taylor Lautner winning Best Shirtless Performance. Never ones to take things less seriously than strictly necessary, Twi-hards then boycotted the awards by watching Breaking Dawn - Part 2 and tweeting #BreakingDawnPart2Night.

At one stage during the ceremony the hashtag was even trending above #mtvmovieawards and host Rebel Wilson. Also trending was "Robsten is the best kiss", showing that annoying Twi-hards may well be the 21st Century social media equivalent of provoking a Mongol horde.
Incidentally the winners of the award were Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper for Silver Linings Playbook, but the fact that Jen won an Oscar for her performance as Tiffany in the movie, and that they spent an hour and half building up to the smooch doesn't seem to have swayed those upset that for the first time in five years Pattinson and Stewart were overlooked.
One Twi-hard, @LovelyStewy, wrote: "I'm so proud of our fandom rn you guys are amazing for trending #breakingdawnpart2night and Robsten is the best kiss <3."
With no more Twilight now on the cards however, it may be that fans of the vampire saga have to get used to a Robsten less Best Kiss category, unless of course rumours of a reunion on screen between the pair prove to be true.
