It’s “Twilight” versus “Slumdog Millionaire” at this year’s MTV Movie Awards.
MTV says the Oscar-winning Indian romance and the vampire blockbuster have six nominations each, including best movie. “Slumdog” star Dev Patel and “Twilight” vamp Robert Pattinson are both nominated for the breakthrough performance award.
Other nominated films include “Iron Man,” “The Dark Knight” and “High School Musical 3: Senior Year.”
