The outcome was inevitable and predicted but we gave it a good fight even with the nefariousness in the voting included (coming up in a later article). Kristen Stewart's fans, in particular her Twilight fans, were having none of it when it came to her winning a Golden Popcorn at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.

Twilight fansites led by Twilight Poison initiated a social media protest  due to the lack of nominations, in particular Best Kiss, which Stewart and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 received. 

The protest was extended to include not voting for Stewart's Snow White in order to not provide Stewart a reason to have any part of the show.  

Unfortunately for SWATH but lucky for Bilbo, Stewart's Twilight fans won.  HitFix gives kudos to the Twilight fans as one of their "Best" in their 'Best and Worst of the 2013 MTV Movie Awards'.

"They [Twilight fans] protested the social networking vote for Best Hero, too, which probably would have gone to Kristen Stewart's Snow White from "Snow White and the Huntsman" in a landslide but instead went to Bilbo Baggins from "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Rock on, Twihards. You are freakin' SERIOUS." 

The fans were told not to watch MTV but to participate in a worldwide viewing party of Breaking Dawn 2 exactly at 9pm EST or when it aired in their own time zone. Fans were also asked to tweet about the film and their memories of the 'Nokia Tent City' premiere experience using the hashtag #BreakingDawnPart2Night in order to trend on Twitter over MTV.  The cast was also asked to join with the fans.

Twilight fans won, again, as the hashtag topped both MTV and host Rebel Wilson on Twitter all night trending their hashtag #BreakingDawnPart2Night.

Stewart also won the night (in a sense) when the winners for the Best Kiss award were announced, an instant worldwide trend under the fan nickname 'Robsten' (which is short for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart)  hit big stating, "Robsten Is The Best Kiss."

In other MTV Movie Awards news:

Chris Hemsworth's The Avengers took home the big prize including Movie of the Year, Best Fight and Best Villain. 

Sam Claflin's upcoming Hunger Games film, Catching Fire, premiered its first trailer. However, he was not in it.  We are pretty sure he will be seen soon.
