ETA: He actually won that award in 2008. - Thanks to RobPattOnline

Rob was awarded "Best Actor" for his performance in "How To Be" by the Strasbourg International Film Festival

Other awards received by Twilighters for non-”Twilight” performances fall primarily in the niche, festival, or independent realm. Robert Pattinson’s sole non-”Twilight” win was awarded by the Strasbourg International Film Festival—he was honored with a “Best Actor” designation for his performance in “How to Be”.

A Note to fans from Breaking Dawn Director: Bill Condon

Greetings Twihards, Twifans, Twilight Moms, Team Edward, Team Jacob and Team Switzerland,

I just want to say hello to all of you and let you know that I'm stoked to be getting underway on the adventure of making BREAKING DAWN. As you've probably heard, I've been given a very warm welcome by Stephenie and Team Summit - who are super-focused, as you know, on getting these movies right.

I'm pretty busy bringing myself up to speed on what you already know by heart: I've read BREAKING DAWN twice, rewatched Catherine's and Chris's movies 2-3 times each, have all four CDs playing in my car, and have Catherine's notebook, Mark Cotta Vaz's companion books, and even Volume 1 of the graphic novel here on my desk - a corner of my office is starting to look like Hot Topic. I realize that this barely qualifies me for "newborn" status in the universe you've been living inside for a few years now, but a guy's gotta start somewhere.

Like many of you, I've always been slightly obsessed with vampires, dating back to the prime-time series DARK SHADOWS, which I followed avidly as a kid. But that alone hadn't been enough to get me interested in making a vampire movie, even though my early screenwriting and directing efforts grew out of a great love for horror movies and thrillers. Since making GODS AND MONSTERS thirteen years ago, however, I've been yearning for a return to a story with Gothic overtones.

The wonderful world that Stephenie has created has obviously struck a chord with you, and I don't think it's difficult to see why. For me, her characters are simultaneously timeless, yet very modern. Rooted in a beautiful, real landscape with a great sense of place, Bella, Edward, Jacob, and the rest of the Forks/La Push menagerie, experience emotions that are primal, and universal: desire, despair, jealousy - and it all comes to fruition in BREAKING DAWN. This is a final chapter in the best sense; not just wide in scope and scale, but emotionally charged and intense throughout.

I'm a huge admirer of the already-iconic Kristen, Robert, and Taylor, and wanted to be the one to work with them as they face the challenges of bringing your beloved characters to the end of their journeys. Really, what could be more fun than that?

Please feel free to ask questions in the comments section below, and I'll do my best to answer them. I hope that this will be the first of many occasions I'll get to check in with you as we set to work bringing BREAKING DAWN to the screen. I am excited and grateful to have all of you alongside me for my TWILIGHT journey.

All best,

Bill Condon

P.S. Answer #1: No, there won't be any musical numbers

Eclipse Re-Shoots Day #2 - Set Report

There isn't much to report on today.

It was all in studio.

As I've mentioned n the past studio is great for the cast and crew because there is no public access.

The downside of this for fans is no photos, information, etc.

Here is what I do know:

Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner started at 5am and wrapped at just after 9pm.

Kristen Stewart left first, Taylor shortly after.

It was a long day and it didn't go as scheduled.

It is not a studio they used before for either New Moon or Eclipse.

Though Robert Pattinson was on set today he did not film as scheduled.

Instead he was seen in the late afternoon at a bar on Commercial drive with good friend Sam Bradley having a bite to eat and a few beers.

Everyone found this fishy... me too... he isn't even "groomed" yet.... and he's been in Vancouver a full 24 hours... Hmmmm.....

They are scheduled to be in studio again tomorrow with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner though films don't always stick to schedules as we have learned.

That's all for now... though keep your eyes and ears open for more in upcoming days...

Thanks for reading,

Rob Neck & Neck With Brad Pitt In April's Celebrity Heat Index

It seems Brad edged out Rob in the top actor category in USA Today's Celebrity Heat Index for the month of April:

Top actor: Brad Pitt

Runner-up: Robert Pattinson

Both leading men are working in Europe: Pattinson with movie Bel Ami and Pitt with family.

This week Rob was number 21.. along with Kristen Stewart. Educated pop culture guess tells me with Eclipse promotion starting up, these two won't be in the double digits for that much longer!

The LA Times Tells Us What We Can Expect From Edward Cullen in Eclipse

The family that slays together, stays together.

At least that's the case for the Cullen brood.

In "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," which hits theaters June 30, Seattle is ravaged by a series of killings caused by an army of newborn vampires controlled by revenge-seeking bloodsucker Victoria. To combat the threat against Bella ( Kristen Stewart) in this third installment of the franchise, the Cullens must band together and join forces with their sworn enemies, the wolf pack.

"The whole family is in a vulnerable position because of the love we have for Bella," said Elizabeth Reaser, who plays matriarch Esme Cullen. "If she's not OK, we're not OK."

In the past, we've seen the clan hit baseballs so hard that they can play only in a thunder storm, to block out the sound. And we've watched the buttoned-up human imposters welcome Bella into their home as the human girlfriend of one of their own — the handsome Edward.

"This time around, you get to see their true vampire-ness," said Peter Facinelli, who plays head vampire Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the series based on the bestselling books by Stephenie Meyer.

What can we expect from the pale-faced Cullen family (which includes the Hale siblings) this go around? Here's what the actors say audiences can expect from the story and their characters:

Robert Pattinson (as Edward Cullen): Snagging a phone interview with the brooding dreamboat — who was overseas shooting his latest film, "Bel Ami" — proved difficult. So what can we expect from the lovesick Edward? He promises to love Bella "every moment of forever," as the trailer reveals. He's still hesitant about her becoming a vampire. He's determined to protect her from Victoria. And he's vying with Jacob for her affections. Oh, the life of an antique teenage vampire.

You can read what the other Cullens talked about their characters here at The LA Times

Betty White Says No To A Nude Scene With Robert Pattinson

Rob called Betty White "one of the sexiest women in America," when he was on The View last March. Now White is getting ready to host the season finale of Saturday Night Live, and The New York Post got her to fess up about Rob's comments: “I should write him a thank-you note.” But don't expect anything more than that:

Still, isn’t there something the “mother of comedy” still wants to do with her career? Say, a nude scene with that young, smoldering Pattinson who’s so taken with her?

No, sorry I wouldn’t,” she says. “There really isn’t much spare time these days.”

You can see why in this first commercial about White's debut on SNL May 8.

What kind of 'Breaking Dawn' will Bill Condon make?

Summit confirmed this morning that, as the rumor mill in Hollywood has been churning for weeks, "Dreamgirls" director Bill Condon will come on to direct the fourth installment in the "Twilight" franchise, no doubt prompting an unlikely spike in "Gods & Monsters" DVD sales among teenage girls. (Condon's name was first reported as a "Breaking Dawn" candidate back in March by Entertainment Weekly.)

Condon has generally been thought of as the more logical choice, at least compared to some of the other directors under consideration, like Sofia Coppola and Stephen Daldry.

In making the choice, Summit, which has gone for a different type of director for each film in the franchise, clearly wanted someone with more Oscar chops (Condon's won one and been nominated for a second). That's both because the "Breaking Dawn" material is a little more complicated than the previous books and because with the franchise already an unstoppable juggernaut, they can afford to take a risk, at least a small one.

So what kind of teen-vampire fable will the man responsible for "Dreamgirls," "Gods & Monsters" and "Kinsey" make? None of his previous directing credits are obvious analogues to this movie (though the initial frenzy over him as a candidate was a little baffling; good filmmakers reinvent themselves all the time. And it's nothing compared to Rob Marshall, another man known for musicals, taking on "Pirates of the Caribbean 4").

Each of Condon's directorial films (he also wrote "Chicago," but we'll leave that one out) contains a strand that can be put front and center in "Breaking Dawn" if the director chose (some spoilers ahead if you're not familiar with the novel).

"Dreamgirls," for all its pomp, centers on the larger world persecuting an anointed one, a neat parallel to the ordeal faced by Bella's child. It also tells a sprawling story from several perspectives, as the "Breaking Dawn" novel does.

"Monsters," which tells of the personal and creative trouble of "Bride of Frankenstein" director James Whale, could come in handy if Condon wanted to explore the demons that come from within, a plight particularly faced by Bella throughout the series.

And a "Kinsey" influence would mean the foregrounding of a misunderstood but right-minded outsider, which kind of describes all three main protagonists in the series but especially, in this book, describes Jacob, who breaks away from his family over their murderous intentions for Bella's child.

As a rule, Condon has been preoccupied with the underdog in his movies, though one who ultimately triumphs and finds vindication, which fits nicely with the themes of "Twilight."

Still, plenty of other questions will arise as production moves forward -- namely, whether the film will shoot in 3-D, how the likely second film that will come from the "Breaking Dawn" novel will be developed, and how the timing of this one will unfold, with Summit eager to keep the momentum going but Condon, like most Oscar winners, accustomed to working at a slower pace.

In "Gods & Monsters," Condon depicted a filmmaker beset by troubles as he tried to make an expectation-laden tale of the supernatural. Here's hoping life doesn't imitate art.

Eclipse Re-Shoots Day #1 - Set Report

FYI - I post these because I am a fan of Twilight and when they filmed in Italy for New Moon, I lived vicariously through people's tweets, photos, stories... it was the same in NYC for Remember Me & Budapest for Bel Ami.

Fans, sharing with fans, experiences, stories, thoughts and sights. And so, I do the same... for fans who can't be here!

I am not a "wanna-be" anything... I am a person, who writes what she experiences... it's Mandy's Mind - and if you don't like it - go away!

After rumours of a "meadow" reshoot I decided to pop by the meadow set last night to see if there were any signs of filming coming up. You know, signs, trailors, security, equipment...

There was nothing.

At the gate which blocks the public from the private property previously used for filming, there was a man in a car.

There is not usually a man in a car at this gate day-to-day, except during filming so this was a subtle hint that indeed this was about to become an active set.

As I drove away guess I what passed?

Trailors... power stations, mobile dressing rooms, etc. all heading towards the gate.

I came home knowing they would indeed be filming at "the meadow" soon.

Today, while many scrambled to find out where in the world Robert Pattinson was, I slept in. I was off work so I decided to swing by the set.

If it was a live set they would have been filming for several hours when I went and given the lack of rain and overcast but bright sky it seemed likely they were indeed filming at "the meadow."

This is the worst exterior set for fans wanting to catch a glimpse of happenings because it is on private property aprox 10 miles PAST a security gate.

During Eclipse, there was a circus (hair/make-up trailors) that had fairly public access... today however, there was not. They moved the circus.

The new circus was further towards the private property "meadow" set (which is actually a GVRD Park) and up a steep drive way on actual private property, as in someone's own personal property. [They were likely paid a pretty penny for its use too]

Not wanting to break any laws I did not venture up towards the circus, ignoring "No Trespassing" signs, nor did I try to get past the GVRD Gate towards the set.

It was enough to know they were indeed filming and I was excited to have found the set.

The only photos I have are of the signs used to direct crew to the hidden location.

Tonight I returned after they wrapped and saw a number of trailors leaving including mobile dressing rooms, power stations and large trucks. I believe they have wrapped that location which is theonly reason I am blogging about it.

If for some reason they haven't wrapped that location then - my bad!

But it clearly looked as though they were done based on the amount of equipment leaving this evening.

So they indeed used the "meadow" set today with both Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart. It wasn't Robert Pattinson on set, so it wasn't the "meadow proposal scene" or anything.

I think there was confusion about just what was filmed at the meadow.... MANY things!!

That particular area has vast surroundings suitable for various shots involving a field, meadow, forest, water, mountains etc.

It is a beautiful British Columbian PARK!!!

Anyways, that is my two cents... I hear studio is next, which mean more vague set reports since fans can not go into studios. But I shall report what I can.

Thanks for reading.

Edward and Bella’s TWILIGHT Kiss: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart Smooch Among 50 Greatest Ever:

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson: Bella and Edward’s (near) kiss in Catherine Hardwicke’s Twilight

Robert Pattinson’s Edward Cullen and Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan kiss in Twilight was included in the Los Angeles Times magazine’s top 50 movie kisses ever. Okay, so a) they were placed at No. 49 (well, the list is chronological) b) it’s old news (Feb ‘10) to everyone but me and perhaps a handful of secluded aborigines in Papua New Guinea.

But I love the photo and decided to mention the (old) news here. Above is that crucial moment before Edward’s and Bella’s lips actually meet. Those precious pre-smooching seconds can be even more arousing — emotionally, I mean — than the actual kissing. At least that’s my opinion.

Chris Weitz writes ab Rob's inclusion in 2010 TIME 100

Can you love 'New Moon' director Chris Weitz any more? yes, yes you can. He was the chosen one to write about Rob and his official inclusion in the 2010 TIME 100 list. And Weitz didn't disappoint. Congratulations Rob! Call Chris!

I have to be careful about what I write here because it will be tweeted the moment TIME hits the stands. And if I say something bad about Rob Pattinson, I'm dead meat. That's the devotion the Twilight films inspire. It's certainly not how he planned it. And though I am continually impressed by the aplomb with which he handles the hysteria, I occasionally think he would take it all back if given the chance. Because essentially, Rob, 23, is a reserved, bookish sort of specimen, a guy who'd rather spend the night at the corner table in the pub with friends — a bit of a weirdo, frankly, in the best sense.

So how to write about someone who seems to answer Freud's rhetorical question, What do women want? Perhaps it's just worth pointing out that it'd be fun to have a beer with him even if he weren't Edward Cullen. That we haven't seen a tenth of what he can do onscreen. And that important things, beyond the veil of Hollywood, occupy his time too — music, conversation, ideas, a sense of the absurd. Which, maybe, explains why he never gets to my e-mails. I love you, Rob! Call me!

Weitz directed The Twilight Saga: New Moon

Robert Pattinson Protects Kristen Stewart In New Twilight ‘Eclipse’ Photo

Robert Pattinson protects Kristen Stewart in new Twilight ‘Eclipse’ photo. “Twilight Saga” super star Robert Pattinson is spotted protecting his leading lady Kristen Stewart from the evil vampire Victoria in this new photo from the upcoming “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” movie. Robert Pattinson plays character Edward Cullen in the flick,and Kristen Stewart plays Bella Swan.

Things get intense for the two lovers as the evil vampire Victoria still seeks revenge for the death of James from the first “Twilight Saga” flick. “Eclipse” will also feature more fighting and action scenes,along with a much more darker tone. There will also be a stronger crop of newborn vampires that arrive on the scene. Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) and the wolf pack will agree to join the Cullens to help get rid of them.

It will also feature some interesting back story information on characters Jasper and Rosalie Hale,played by Jackson Rathbone and Nikki Reed. “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” is set to hit theaters on June 30.

1st Picture of Robert Pattinson Arriving To Vancouver

Robert was reported smiling as he arrived for Eclipse reshoots in Vancouver. He will be meeting up with Taylor & Kristen for some "pick up scenes". I have been told it's to make up where there might have been bad angles or light, etc. I hope we get some pics from the set.

Rumors of cars chases & wild paparazzi action has been reported but as far as we know it's just rumors. I guess we aren't the only ones excited to see RPattz again!

It’s Official! R-Patz & K-Stew, You’re Th0e World’s Most Beautiful Couple!

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart score well-deserved spots on People magazine’s “Most Beautiful People” list!

We knew Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were bloody gorgeous. Duh. But now People magazine is confirming what we’ve known all along — that R-Patz and his Twilight leading lady are THE hottest couple around: both made the magazine’s “World’s Most Beautiful” issue!

“I’m so sick of my own pallid, grey complexion” the 23-year-old British hunk says, but then adds that playing vampire Edward Cullen does have it perks. He says, “Having that makeup put on every single day, as soon as you get it taken off, it’s like, ‘Oh you do look normal. You look healthy now.’”

Kristen, 20, has a similarly self-deprecating way of looking at being called a beauty. “My fashion icon is John Belushi,” she says. “Seriously.”

What happened to Joan Jett, K-Stew? We thought SHE was your fashion icon!

New Runaways Review-Kristen "is terrific as Joan Jett"

Yes, Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning star in this one, but for anyone expecting a natural progression from a certain vampire series, a word of warning (or endorsement, depending on your point of view): The Runaways is dripping with sex. It’s about music fuelled by the furious desire to have an orgasm, a celebration of the X chromosome, chicks with guitars and other feminist thesis fodder. The Runaways is just the latest band biopic to vamp on that familiar riff of sex, drugs and you-know-what, but with the girls finally taking centrestage. Played by Kristen Stewart, Joan Jett exudes badass. Shag-haired and clad in a guy’s studded leather jacket – there are precious few female role models for her to look up to – she’s hell-bent on breaking some strings and blowing some amps. When a music teacher informs her that “Girls don’t play electric guitar,” she chooses to take it as a personal challenge. Providing counterpoint is Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie, a platinum blonde nymphet who is just as much a rebel and misfit as Joan; she is quietly, perversely pleased by the violent reception she gets for her David Bowie lip-sync performance at a school talent show. Joan and Cherie (and a couple of not-as-important band members) come together under the tattered wing of rock impresario Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon from Revolutionary Road). The Runaways are born in a derelict trailer park, with Joan on the axe and Cherie rocking the mic, as they promptly bust out their feisty classic ‘Cherry Bomb’ with next to no effort.

As you might expect from Sigismondi’s credentials, The Runaways looks and sounds great. It has a grainy, gritty visual style that perfectly complements the rough-edged energy of the music. What lets it down is the script, which seems to have been assembled out of hazy memories during a bad hangover. It was based on Neon Angel: A Memoir of a Runaway, Cherie Currie’s 1989 memoir, which partially explains why the movie turns into the story of Cherie – the one who ended up running away from The Runaways. There is, subsequently a big blind spot where Joan’s personal journey should be. One gets the impression she ceases to exist when she unstraps her guitar. It’s a missed opportunity.

That said, Kristen Stewart looks good in a leather jacket, and is terrific as Joan Jett. Heck, when she knocks together her own Sex Pistols T-shirt and casually flips herself the V in the mirror as she’s trying it on, you believe she is Joan Jett. Unlike Robert Pattinson, whose dreadful Remember Me opened a week earlier Stateside, Stewart proves herself a very capable performer, and leaves the Twihards coughing dust in her wake. It was a calculated decision to leave Bella Swan far behind, but the right one to make. Dakota Fanning is also remarkable as the girl thrust unprepared into fame, no doubt a story she knows well. Thing is, it’s hard to get behind her the way you want to, since Sigismondi has a knack for moving on quickly just as things are getting interesting – the film, for instance, hints at a relationship between Joan and Cherie but then doesn’t know what to do with it. Perhaps another byproduct of Sigismondi’s music video experience: she doesn’t want to linger for fear of being boring.

Just as the original band owed their success to part-manager, part-pimp Kim Fowley, this movie gets it mojo from Michael Shannon, who is in a class of his own as the cocksure Fowley training his chicks. It’s Fowley that brands the girls as fetish objects, works them like a drill sergeant at band boot camp, exploits them, abuses them. (Verbally that is. It’s been suggested that Fowley abused them in ways not purely verbal, but that isn’t addressed here.) It’s a fierce performance of the sort of character you only get in real life – since in fiction he’d probably need some redemptive qualities. America didn’t really warm to all-girl ’70s rock group The Runaways the first time round. They barely made a dent in the charts and disbanded after five years. If this film achieves anything, it’s bringing Joan Jett and The Runaways to a whole new audience, which is nice. It’s just a shame that it doesn’t quite manage to rock as hard as The Runaways did.
