Justin Bieber, ‘Twilight’ Stars Dominate Young Hollywood Awards

There weren’t many surprises when it comes to gossip blog Hollywood Life’s announcement of who made the cut for their 12th annual Young Hollywood Awards. Few things are hotter right now than “Twilight,” Justin Bieber, Disney stars or any combination of the three.

So it certainly wasn’t a shocker to learn that Bieber — who’s enjoyed an extraordinarily fast ride to fame over the past year — is the recipient of the Young Hollywood Newcomer of the Year award.

But the Canadian phenom couldn’t best the competition when it came to the Artist of the Year award. That honor went to another wildly popular teen: 17-year-old JoBro Nick Jonas, who nabbed the win, thanks to his solo debut with Nick Jonas and the Administration.

Also making the list were two young “Twilight” stars — but, surprisingly, not the pair fans might have expected. KStew and RPattz took home no prizes, but Nikki Reed was named Superstar in the Making, while Ashley Greene is the Young Hollywood Style Icon. Another vampire ensemble did make the cut, though, with the cast of the popular CW series “The Vampire Diaries” being named Cast to Watch.

Miley Cyrus’ boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth, got a nod on the list for Breakthrough of the Year, after co-starring with Cyrus in “The Last Song.” Hemsworth has a couple of films in the pipeline, including “The Throwback” and 2011’s “Arabian Nights.” The rising actor also boasts the prestigious honor of being one of Hollywood Crush’s Hump Day Hotties.

The show will be held on May 13 in Los Angeles. Other notable winners included Whitney Cummings (Comedian of the Year), Chad Ochocinco (Athlete of the Year), Nina Dobrev (Young Hollywood Making Their Mark) and “90210’s” Jessica Stroup (Young Hollywood Sparkling Performance). SOURCE

‘Eclipse’ Stars Eager To Show Cullens’ ‘True Vampire-ness’

Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone and Nikki Reed love the movie’s amped-up action.

The latest “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” trailer proved that the third film in the popular franchise is going to be the most action-packed “Twilight” film yet. And in an interview with The Los Angeles Times the actors who make up the Cullen family are clearly excited to show that their characters aren’t just about playing baseball and sitting around the piano.

“This time around, you get to see their true vampire-ness,” said Peter Facinelli, who plays Carlisle Cullen.

One of the bigger surprises for fans is going to be a chance to see a “dark, dangerous side” of Alice Cullen, played by Ashley Greene. The fan-favorite character is typically portrayed as a bubbly fashionista and party planner who is overly protective of her vampire family and Bella (Kristen Stewart). But Greene promises that “Eclipse” will showcase the toughest Alice yet.

“Alice gets a little edgier with each installment,” she told the Times. “It’s a reminder to the audience that even though we restrain ourselves at times, we’re still vampires and we’re dangerous.”

Elizabeth Reaser, whose Esme had very little to do in “Twilight” and “New Moon,” enjoyed her part in “Eclipse.” “It was interesting to get in touch with the vampire side of her in ways that haven’t really been explored,” Reaser said. “Her family is in danger and that brings out the mama bear in her.”

Jackson Rathbone and Nikki Reed also spoke about Jasper’s and Rosalie’s flashbacks in the third installment. “You’ll get to see a little bit of the root of what makes Jasper so withdrawn and quiet in the Cullen family,” Rathbone said. “There’s a bit of the softer and darker side of Jasper in this film.”

Reed added, “Fans got to see a bit of [Rosalie’s] sensitive side. Her sane side. Her logical side. And her desire to help her family. This time around, she is much more of a participant. She’s a survivor.” SOURCE
