Teen Choice Award Nominees for "Choice Movie Horror/Thriller":
- The Uninvited
- Drag Me To Hell
- Friday The 13th
- The Haunting of Molly Hartley
Drag Me to Hell is clearly the best of this bunch, but I'm wagering The Uninvited walks away with it. Just as I'm sure Twilight will beat out Slumdog Millionaire in the top category. The MTV Awards committed much the same crime not long ago, and this will be no different. Personally, I lost all faith in the MTV Awards back in 1994, when Menace II Society won out against Schindler's List, Jurassic Park, The Fugitive and Philadelphia...
As for the sparkly vampire saga, it's landed a grand total of 12 nominations, ranging from "Choice Movie Drama" to... "Choice Male Hottie"... Hard to even type that...
To give you an idea of the demographic, Twilight's 12 noms is approached only by Gossip Girl and High School Musical 3, with 10 each. I know, I know, I'm expecting far too much from these young'uns, and I need to stop being such a bitter old man. But these are the people who will one day be running the country when I'm starting to cash in my social security (if it even still exists then). Do I want my beloved nation under the control of people whose idea of a great horror movie is The Uninvited? That could be even worse than the baby boomers being in charge.
OK, nothing could be that bad...
