'Twilight' triumphs at Empire Cinema Alternative Movie Awards

Feb 27 2013, 10:10am CST | by

'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2' swept Empire Cinemas' first Alternative Movie Awards.

The final installment of the vampire franchise took five awards - including Best On-Screen Couple, Best Kiss and Best Villain - in the British cinema chain's first annual awards in which winners were voted solely by eager movie fans.

The film's stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart took home the prizes for Best Couple and Best Kiss for their roles as Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, while Taylor Lautner beat the likes of Channing Tatum and Chris Hemsworth to win Best Male Body.

Michael Sheen's antagonist Aro was voted Best Villain, while the movie also scored the Best Fight Scenes award over 'Skyfall' and 'The Dark Knight Rises'.

Jon Nutton, marketing director of Empire Cinemas said: ''The awards season is such a talking point in the film and cinema industry.

''We've created The Empire Cinemas Alternative Movie Awards to help celebrate film even more, but to also give film fans a voice and pick the winners of awards not generally seen at the big ceremonies. 'Twilight' was a huge success for Empire Cinemas and it's clear to see our cinemagoers agree, voting it the winner of five awards.''

Other big winners were singer Rihanna, whose on-screen debut in 'Battleship' earned her the Best Pop Star Performance nod, and recently crowned Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway took the nod for Best Female Body after donning a figure-hugging catsuit in last year's Batman film.

The Empire Cinemas Alternative Movie Award winners:

Best On-Screen Couple: Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2'

Best On-Screen Kiss: Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2'
