Twilight’s Robert Pattinson vs. Taylor Lautner
Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner fight over People’s Choice Awards Favorite Movie Actor category.
The People’s Choice Awards air tonight on CBS and I wanted to take a minute to talk about the Favorite Movie Actor category as the two dudes from Twilight (Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner) are up against each other.
The nominees for Favorite Movie Actor are Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Jr., Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. This is a pretty diverse category with guys from all kinds of different backgrounds and who starred in a lot of different movies. The People’s Choice Awards are a popularity contest and the winner is determined solely on who gets the most votes. That could narrow down the potential winner.
I think it rules out Robert Downey Jr. He is a real talent and he was in a couple of big movies, but I think when you compare him to the other guys in this category I don’t think he has the following to win. Many people might say that the huge, fanatical following for the Twilight Saga movies would help one of the Twilight stars to win, but I actually think those two guys (Pattinson-Lautner) will split the vote. So that brings it down to DiCaprio and Depp and from here you have to give it to Depp. Depp is one of those few actors who cross generational lines. Men and women alike love him and I think he is the guy to beat in this category. I don’t know if he will show up for the show, but I have a feeling he is going to be the guy who wins this one.
There you have it, my predictions and a quick overview of the Favorite Movie Actor category at the People’s Choice Awards. Tune in at 9pm Wednesday night on CBS to find out who will win.
