Hollywood Gossip's Celebrity Of The Year = The Cast Of New Moon!

For the last couple weeks, The Hollywood Gossip has looked back at 2009 by naming the finalists for our prestigious, 3rd Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

In this section, we've been paying tribute to the unique stars that made the past 12 months so memorable for gossip followers across the nation and globe.

For 2009, THG's Celebrity of the Year is... the New Moon cast!

Critics might say we're copping out by choosing more than one star for this honor, but come on. Everyone involved with the Twilight Saga deserves recognition for turning a book series into the most popular, buzzed-about film franchise in years.

This doesn't always happen. Remember The Golden Compass? Probably not. Starring Nicole Kidman, it was meant as the first installment in a trilogy based on Philip Pullman's His Dark Material novels. A second movie was never even made.

So, what enabled New Moon to gross over $660 million worldwide? A cast of young, fresh, gorgeous, talented and seemingly grounded individuals. Below, we note each actor's 2009 accomplishments:

Robert Pattinson: Might as well start at the top. The British actor has grown into a global phenomenon. He can't walk away from a film set without being followed by countless paparazzi members, his every interaction with women is chronicled like it's a Presidential summit and he was named one of People's 50 Most Beautiful People of 2009.

Over the course of a few months, Pattinson covered Entertainment Weekly, Harper's Bazaar, OK! Weekly, Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone. He's also dating...

Kristen Stewart: She broods, therefore she is. While Stewart had already appeared in a critically-acclaimed movie (Into the Wild) prior to landing the role of Bella Swan, she took on a cult following after her performance in New Moon. Millions of women around the world both love her and hate her for bagging Pattinson, but one thing is clear: they can't take their eyes off her.

Taylor Lautner: He dated Taylor Swift. He rarely wore a shirt. He was actually able to recruit girls away from Team Edward for Team Jacob, based on his bulked-up role in New Moon. Lautner has already signed on for two new movies and appears to have a huge career ahead of him.

Ashley Greene: The actress almost broke the Internet when naked photos of her were leaked online.

Nikki Reed: Probably the least known main star of the franchise. But she's dating Paris Latsis, Paris Hilton's ex, and has been involved in numerous THG Fashion Face-Offs.

Kellan Lutz: Has the best young body in Hollywood and wants to be the next Jason Bourne. Has been involved with 90210 star AnnaLynne McCord and... did we mention his body?

There you have it. It's been an incredible year and we're grateful that so many readers joined us for the ride. We can't think of a better way to end 2009 than with a photo montage that honors these Celebrities of the Year. Click around, enjoy and come back in 2010 for so much more...

Vulture Exclusive: Robert Pattinson Chips Tooth In Flossing Accident

Sure, he looks foul-smelling, but would you believe Twilight star Robert Pattinson is really "incredibly hygienic"? So hygienic, in fact, that he's a threat to himself and his teeth? It's true, claims his Eclipse co-star Bryce Dallas Howard! When we ran into her at the recent New York premiere of her new movie, the Tennessee Williams–scripted The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond (out today), she told us about her first brush with Rob: "I actually came out to him that I was totally nervous about [meeting him]," said Howard, who will replace Rachelle Lafevre as evil vampire Victoria in next year's Twilight 3. "He’s such a sweet young man, and there’s such a distinctive difference between him and Edward Cullen. He does such a wonderful job embodying that character, and bringing that character to life. But when you meet him, he’s such a down-to-earth, humble person, you feel bad freaking out around him."

"But what does he smell like?" we inquired. "Actually, he’s incredibly hygienic," Howard insisted. "He told me this story that made me crack up. He was like,
'Oh, I have to go to the dentist.' And I was like, 'Oh no, what happened? Just a check-up?' And he was like, 'No, I chipped a tooth.' And I was like, 'How?' And he was like, ‘Flossing.’ Who does that? I don’t even floss. So he’s hygienic. Trust me."

Ummm what?!?

The Twilight Saga & Plaid Shirts Make GMA News' The 2009 Red Hot Dozen

4. The Twilight Saga. New Moon, the second installment in the film version of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series intensified the hold that shiny pretty vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) has on females all over the world. Alas, his fangs are only for Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), who, in turn, is loved by werewolf Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). Team Edward and Team Jacob members fought over who was the best match for the girl-next-door. Was it the yummy bloodsucker or the fine furry friend with the six-pack? While that all-important question has yet to be answered (at least until the next screen installment is shown), tons of Twilight merchandise—from shirts to action figures—have been sold to its most ardent fans.

6. Plaid Shirts. Fashion-conscious chicks sashayed in plaid boyfriend-inspired shirts in 2009. Plus, it didn’t hurt that Twilight’s Bella Swan seemed to have hooked her vampire sweetheart wearing the getup.

'Twilight' Studio Summit Joins Golden Globes Party Scene! Will Robert Pattinson Attend?

Will "Twilight Saga" stars Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner attend next month's Golden Globes?

The Dish Rag has it on good authority that it's a definite possibility.

And if they do, there's also a very good chance we'll see them afterwards at at least one of the five official parties that night. OMG, this is better news than Rob's unreleased photos!

There are five parties already confirmed to take place on Sunday, Jan. 17, inside the Beverly Hilton where the Globes are traditionally held.

And fledgling film company Summit Entertainment (yes, the "Twilight Saga" studio) has joined the ranks of the big studio parties being thrown at the hotel by Universal, NBC, Warner Bros, HBO, and Harvey and Bob Weinstein.

As usual, there will the infamous Instyle/Warner Bros bash down in the Oasis Courtyard.

And then there's the Universal/NBC/Focus fete, held high on the hotel roof overlooking Beverly Hills, followed by the always hot HBO bash at Circa 55, spreading out around the pool. Then there's Weinstein Company's celebration, traditionally held in the former Trader Vic's space.

But the big news is that distributor Summit Entertainment -- the folks who brought us the infectiously successful "Twilight Saga: New Moon as well as the critically lauded "The Hurt Locker" -- will hold its very first onsite Golden Globe party this year.

We hear it will be in the Stardust Room.

We're thinking at least a couple supernatural attendees will be mandatory.

TDG Note: What about KStew? Is it assumed that she'll already be at Sundance?

No More Taylor Squared? Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner Break Up

Taylor Swift and “New Moon” hunk Taylor Lautner have split up.

The couple, who met on the set of the movie “Valentine’s Day,” began dating a little more than three months ago, but “it just wasn’t happening,” a Swift source tells Gossip Cop.

The insider added, “They met, they liked each other, went out a few times, but the media made a bigger deal of it then it was because they’re young and attractive.”

And while the two Taylors each jokingly acknowledged their budding relationship when hosting “Saturday Night Live,” it was never a whirlwind romance. The source described it as two young people going on a few (well-documented) dates, but it never materializing into anything more serious.

The break-up, says the insider, was “not big or dramatic,” nor was the romance “contrived,” as an Us Weekly source termed it.

“It just wasn’t happening,” reiterated the source, who said the two stars are still “going to be friends.”


The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Is A Top 10 Sequel To Look Forward To In 2010

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
(June 30): No matter how you feel about the Twilight franchise, it's here, it sparkles, so get used to it! Twi-hards and skeptics alike should take interest in the third installment in the series, for a few reasons. First, Eclipse is much darker in tone than its predecessors, a serial killer movie about vampires on the loose in Seattle (and, as always, teenage bloodsuckers in love). Second, it's directed by genre specialist David Slade, whose previous films are the very scary Hard Candy and the very bloody 30 Days of Night. Third, given the ginormous success of Stephenie Meyer's books and the first two films, isn't it about time you found out what all this Twilight business is about?


Robsten & Taylor Squared Make MTV's Favorite Couples Of 2009

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
This alleged couple really had everyone talking this year. They were seen canoodling several times (at a Kings of Leon concert and in Paris) and when asked about it, always played the "just good friends" card. (Or got angry everyone was still asking about the alleged relationship.) So who knows what's really going on? Here's hoping that we find out in 2010.

Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner

Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner They play a couple in the upcoming rom-com "Valentine's Day," but rumor has it the two were method acting. After filming scenes for the flick over the summer, the pair started hanging out. Neither has confirmed the romance, but they've always spoken highly of one another while dancing around questions about their relationship. And we did see that suggestive wink girl Taylor gave boy Taylor on "Saturday Night Live."


Robert Pattinson to Own 2010: Remember Me, Eclipse & Unbound Captives

It's s a wrap on 2009! For Robert Pattinson lovers it has been an amazing year filled with candid interviews that has given fans a chance to get an inside look at the actor's private life. Thanks to the Robsessed DVD we got to take a trip back in time before Pattinson was larger than life and just playing open mic night for Phil Taylor at The Albany alongside friend Bobby Long. We also learned a lot about Rob while he was promoting the release of The Twilight Saga: New Moon back in November. As 2009 winds down, we look to the horizon of 2010 and wonder what is in store for the uber famous Robert Pattinson.

It is an undeniable fact that Rob will make his fans swoon with his casual hair flips, his brilliant knack for being fabulous, and his interesting roles in upcoming films. In 2009, Rob appeared in a few indie films, Little Ashes (2010) and How to Be (2009) along with the international blockbuster The Twilight Saga: New Moon. But come 2010, Pattinson is taking a different approach as leading man.

2010 is all about becoming mainstream for Pattinson, and this coming March the English actor will take center stage in Summit's Remember Me. In the past, Pattinson has been a supporting actor, however in this film the actor will finally be able to carry a film on his own. Co-starring alongside Lost beauty Emilie De Ravin and former James Bond hotness Pierce Brosnan, Remember Me will be a momentous film for the young actor. Check out the upcoming 2010 films where you can catch your favorite actor.

Remember Me (2010)

Opening Date: March 12, 2010
CoStars: Emilie De Ravin, Pierce Brosnan, Chris Cooper & Martha Plimpton.
Plot: Pattinson plays Tyler a man floundering in New York City while trying to figure out his life without the help of his powerful father (Pierce Brosnan). Tyler finds himself in one fight after the next but when he meets a fellow student, his life is forever changed.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)

Opening Date: June 30, 2010
CoStars: Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Peter Facinelli, Nikki Reed, Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone & Elizabeth Reaser.
Plot: The Saga continues in the third installment where Bella makes her decision between vampire Edward and her best friend werewolf Jacob. There is no shortness of drama in this installment, as the Cullen's and the Wolf Pack team up together to help fight off the evil vampires who are out for blood.

Unbound Captives (2010)
Opening Date: 2010
CoStars: Rachel Weisz Hugh Jackman & Garret Dillahunt.
Plot: This period piece follows May (Rachel Weisz) who plays a women whose children have been kidnapped after the terrible death of her husband. Tom (Hugh Jackman) assists May in finding her lost son Phineas (Robert Pattinson) in the sweeping epic tale.

TDG Note: What about Bel Ami with Uma Thurman? IMO that's more likely going to happen before Unbound Captives (which is still waiting for financing). I think BA is supposed to be filmed starting February in Europe.
