“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” Was The Best Movie Of 2010

“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” Was The Best Movie Of 2010 (photo)

Look, I’m not going to get on my soapbox and rant about the MTV Movie Awards. The mere fact that I use the phrase “get on my soapbox” is a good indication that I’m way too old to get indignant about “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” being declared the best movie of the last year or Robert Pattinson winning Best Male Performance over Jesse Eisenberg, or Justin Bieber winning Best Jaw-Dropping Moment for his concert film “Never Say Never.” Wait, Justin Bieber won Best Jaw-Dropping Moment for a concert film? Aren’t concerts, like, his job? What’s so jaw-dropping about that? He beat Steve-O’s Port-O-Potty bungee stunt in “Jackass 3D?” The man risked death by poop ingestion for our entertainment, people! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE THAT I — ah crap, there I go getting on my old man soapbox. Sorry.

Actually, I find the MTV Movie Awards pretty fascinating (if you missed them, and you’re willing to watch a lot of commercials in the process, the whole show is online — I recommend you at least make time to watch Jim Carrey’s introduction of Foo Fighters). Since they’re voted on by fans obsessive enough to care about who wins the MTV Movie Awards, they’re a pretty good litmus test of young moviegoers’ passions. And, yes, obviously they’re pretty passionate about the “Twilight” films right now, as the movie won five out of the six categories in which it was nominated: Best Movie, Best Male and Female Performance, Best Fight, and Best Kiss (SQUEEEEEE!).

So, yeah, that was predictable. But take a look at some of the other winners below. Would you have predicted Emma Stone taking Best Comedic Performance over the likes of comedy heavyweights like Adam Sandler and Zach Galifianakis? Or how about “Kick-Ass”‘ Chloe Moretz winning two awards for Best Breakout Star and Biggest Badass Star? Neither “Easy A” or “Kick-Ass” were major hits at the box office; combined, they barely cleared $100 million bucks domestically. Either these guys have absolutely amazing street teams getting out the online vote, or those movies are gaining major traction with that MTV audience on DVD.

Wait, is that MTV audience even old enough to watch “Kick-Ass?” That film was rated R. Parents of America, you have failed again.

WTF Films

Artfully Off

Celebrity All-Star by Sisters Weekend is available now on IFC's Comedy Crib.

Posted by on

Sisters Weekend isn’t like other comedy groups. It’s filmmaking collaboration between besties Angelo Balassone, Michael Fails and Kat Tadesco, self-described lace-front addicts with great legs who write, direct, design and produce video sketches and cinematic shorts that are so surreally hilarious that they defy categorization. One such short film, Celebrity All-Star, is the newest addition to IFC’s Comedy Crib. Here’s what they had to say about it in a very personal email interview…

IFC_Comedy-Crib_Sisters-Weekend-Series-Image

IFC: How would you describe Celebrity All-Star to a fancy network executive you just met in an elevator?

Celebrity All-Star is a short film about an overworked reality TV coordinator struggling to save her one night off after the cast of C-List celebrities she wrangles gets locked out of their hotel rooms.

IFC: How would you describe Celebrity All-Star to a drunk friend of a friend you met in a bar?

Sisters Weekend: It’s this short we made for IFC where a talent coordinator named Karen babysits a bunch of weird c-list celebs who are stuck in a hotel bar. It’s everyone you hate from reality TV under one roof – and that roof leaks because it’s a 2-star hotel. There’s a magician, sexy cowboys, and a guy wearing a belt that sucks up his farts.

IFC: What was the genesis of Celebrity All-Star?

Celebrity All-Star was born from our love of embarrassing celebrities. We love a good c-lister in need of a paycheck! We were really interested in the canned politeness people give off when forced to mingle with strangers. The backstory we created is that the cast of this reality show called “Celebrity All-Star” is in the middle of a mandatory round of “get to know each other” drinks in the hotel bar when the room keys stop working. Shows like Celebrity Ghost Hunters and of course The Surreal Life were of inspo, but we thought it
was funny to keep it really vague what kind of show they’re on, and just focus on everyone’s diva antics after the cameras stop rolling.

IFC: Every celebrity in Celebrity All-Star seems familiar. What real-life pop personalities did you look to for inspiration?

Sisters Weekend: Anyone who is trying to plug their branded merch that no one asked for. We love low-rent celebrity. We did, however, directly reference Kylie Jenner’s turd-raison lip color for our fictional teen celebutante Gibby Kyle (played by Mary Houlihan).

IFC: Celebrity seems disgusting yet desirable. What’s your POV? Do you crave it, hate it, or both?

Sisters Weekend: A lot of people chase fame. If you’re practical, you’ll likely switch to chasing success and if you’re smart, you’ll hopefully switch to chasing happiness. But also, “We need money. We need hits. Hits bring money, money bring power, power bring fame, fame change the game,” Young Thug.

IFC: Who are your comedy idols?

Sisters Weekend: Mike grew up renting “Monty Python” tapes from the library and staying up late to watch 2000’s SNL, Kat was super into Andy Kaufman and “Kids In The Hall” in high school, and Angelo was heavily influenced by “Strangers With Candy” and Anna Faris in the Scary Movie franchise, so, our comedy heroes mesh from all over. But, also we idolize a lot of the people we work with in NY-  Lorelei Ramirez, Erin Markey, Mary Houlihan, who are all in the film, Amy Zimmer, Ana Fabrega, Patti Harrison, Sam Taggart. Geniuses! All of Em!

IFC: What’s your favorite moment from the film?

Sisters Weekend: I mean…seeing Mary Houlihan scream at an insane Pomeranian on an iPad is pretty great.
