Twilight won best picture at the MTV Movie Awards w00t!!!! Saw the new trailer for New Moon wickedness NEW MOON MOVIE SPOILER!!!!

The scene was so not by the book at all. its when Laurent finds Bella in the meadow and starts to go after her. Instead it is by Jacobs house on the res and ou hear Bella go jacob look out and than see him shift into his wolf self. kind of lame that they filmed it in that context but seeing Jacob(down with wolfs) shift was kind of cool. The birthday scene at the beginning was tight but i didnt seem like her arm injury was as bad as in the book but it was a short scene so its hard to tell. cant wait till november but i guess ill have to. oh also Kristen stewart was like oh a papercut she seemed to have no emotion kind of sucked. and KS her dress was okay but who the hell wears converse with a dress kind of lame. okay i watched it again and it wasnt as bad as i thoughi think kristen stewart needs to work on her emotional range though.

heres some pictures:
