NextMovie – The 1st Annual ‘Twilight’ Academy Awards

The Academy Awards have to attract young viewers to remain the biggest awards show. That’s why they expanded the Best Picture category to 10 nominees, allowing more populist films to be included.

They’ve also started a huge social networking push, announcing recently that the ceremony will be streaming live online, and named the unlikely young duo of Anne Hathaway and James Franco as co-hosts.

This is all costing the Academy a pretty penny, during a time when movie ticket sales are down. However, all they really need to attract younger viewers is “The Twilight Saga.”

I am not suggesting that the prestigious awards show should tarnish its reputation by including “Twilight” nominees in undeserved categories. Most reasonable Twi-Hards are willing to admit Robert Pattinson’s performance as Edward doesn’t quite match up to Colin Firth in “The King’s Speech” or James Franco in “127 Hours.”

What I am suggesting, simply, is they add some categories where “Twilight” will be a lock.

Young folks love vampires and wizards and supernatural storylines. However, with the current Academy’s taste and categories, those films are rarely nominated outside of snoozefest categories like Best Makeup or Best Visual Effects (no offense, makeup people and visual effect dudes). The Academy has added categories in the past like Best Animated Feature Film. Why not a few more?

In a selfless effort to help the film industry, I am listing suggestions for new categories and what movies and actors would have been nominated had the awards been included this year. Members of the Academy should note that these not only allow “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” to be nominated multiple times, but also other popular movies like “Paranormal Activity 2″ and “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1.”

Most of my suggestions are fairly self-explanatory. Obviously, to be considered for Best Supernatural Feature Film, there would have to be supernatural elements in the movie. Others may not seem as clear-cut.

Best Performance In A Supernatural Redemption Role is where a supernatural character does something wrong, but makes up for it by doing something right. Jasper Hale almost ate Bella, and then protected her by training the Cullens and the wolf pack to fight newborn vampires.
