Lucky duck! The rest of us will have to wait until 9 pm EST. Shelly blogs:
HOLY MOLY, people! I just had another amazing surprise this morning. I got to watch the “New Moon” trailer that will be airing on Sunday during the big show (airing live at 9 p.m. ET). Amazing! I loved it! It looks like director Chris Weitz has tried to incorporate as many elements from the book as possible, and — no worries — the vamps all look great. I was completely speechless at first. Maybe it was just that good. Maybe it was the “top secret” feel of the whole thing. Maybe I’m just a closet Twilighter like so many others. Who knows? What ever the case may be, you will have to tune in Sunday to see it for yourself.Read more at MTV.

Billy Burke Blows-off Romance Rumors and Mistakenly Thinks We'd Find RPattz's Goofinesss Less Appealing
I love Charlie...wonder why there were never any Charlie sightings in Vancity!
"As far as I know, I'm gonna say bulls--t," Billy Burke said at Melanie Segal's MTV Movie Awards gift suite. "I'm not buying it. Please!"
Interesting. Then again, when do dads (even movie ones) ever know what the kids are really up to?
Burke just returned from filming New Moon in Vancouver, where he and Rob sometimes grabbed drinks at local dive bars.
So what's R.Pattz like when the cameras aren't rolling?
"He's a goofball," Billy said about Rob's real personality. "If people knew how much of a goofball he was, they wouldn't be falling all over the place. He doesn't take it all too seriously."
I'm gonna be live-blogging my silly thoughts on Sunday night along with my hilarious friends over at Letters to Twilight, New Moon Movie and Lauren's Bite, who invited me to join them in this nonsensical discussion.
We will ponder important, thought-provoking topics such as:
Catherine Hardwicke shows MTV her Venice home where everything started, which you can read about here. Of the audition kiss, she shared lots of cool details!
"This is the bed. That's where we had the first kiss between Rob and Kristen," Hardwicke beamed on Thursday when we visited her home just blocks from the beach, to celebrate such MTV Movie Awards moments as the Best Kiss nominee born on her own personal bed. "We did the audition — the chemistry read — here to see if these two would have chemistry. To see if their kiss would be exciting and cool.
"They came to my house — they had just met," Hardwicke remembered, inviting MTV News' Tim Kash to sit on the same edge of the bed where RPattz had made his move all those months before. "I said, 'I know you just met, but I need you to do this scene. We're gonna do it in my bedroom, on the bed — and you're really gonna kiss.'
"Kristen already had to kiss three other guys that day," Hardwicke smiled, addressing the Twilighters. "I know that's torturous, ladies."
Then it came time for the young actor they were referring to as "Bachelor Number Three." "She was kind of sleepy and just hanging out — and then Robert appeared in the room," Hardwicke remembered. "His hair was a little different — it was his Dalí hair, with the black bangs."
Although the finished product would be sexy enough for a Movie Awards nomination, Rob and Kristen's first smooch was anything but. "He was a bit nervous, because suddenly you've just met a girl and you're going to start making out with the person — and someone is filming," remembered Hardwicke, who was capturing test footage on film to show the studio. "[Pattinson] was really wild on the first take — use your imagination.
"I had to tell him, 'This is going to be a PG-13 movie!' and have him settle down a little bit," she laughed. "Afterwards, Kristen and I were looking at each other like, 'Whoa!'
"They had to do it three times," she remembered. "The first time, they went a little too far, and I was like, 'I can't show this to anybody at the studio!' After we finished the whole thing and we had met bachelors one, two, three and four, Kristen said, 'It has to be Rob.' She basically threatened me."
MTV has put up a ton of Twilight articles up over the past 24 hours in anticipation of this Sunday's Movie Awards, including one touching upon how much life has changed in one year for the Twilight Cast and reveals that Ashley, Kellan & Cam will be present too:
One year ago, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and a handful of other "Twilight" stars arrived at the MTV Movie Awards and walked down the red carpet, with most of the world's press uninterested in speaking with them. In fact, they had to go back to the beginning of the carpet and start again, just so they could be properly introduced to those who didn't realize they were movie stars. Luckily, MTV had caught the "Twilight" bug early, eagerly did some exclusive interviews with the actors on the carpet and were proud to use the occasion as their coming-out party.Read the rest at MTV.
This Sunday night, Rob, Kristen, Kellan, Ashley, Cam, Taylor and others will return to Universal's Gibson Amphitheatre triumphantly, leading the evening's attendees with seven nominations. And when director Catherine Hardwicke recently showed us around her Venice home where it all began, she marveled at the difference 12 months can make.
"Pretty much, everyone was more or less an unknown when we cast them," she explained. "Now they've all blown up big, like, crazy."

As for the guys? Rob has obviously been a hot commodity, but apparently the Italians are loving newcomer Charlie Bewley, too. Charlie is playing Demetri, and fans have been "clamoring for pictures and autographs" from him.
Filming is supposed to wrap Friday, with Rob done today. Can't wait to hear what happens when Robsten is supposedly back in L.A. this weekend!
And if you're wondering if filming might delay an MTV appearance at this point, Twilight sources say everything's "on schedule."

OMG, this clip for Nurse Jackie, which premieres June 8th, is hilarious!
We've been neglecting other cast members after all that kissing excitement yesterday. :-) Robsten Lovers shares that Peter Facinelli will be on Chelsea Lately on June 3rd. Thanks, ladies!
MTV shows us that KStew & Rob will be seat-neighbors, and you can spy Taylor a couple row back to the left-side. Yeah, that is Stephanie Pratt...
For the record, all these pics have only gotten me MORE excited about New Moon and Chris Weitz! Chris's doing an amazing job bringing our beloved book to life. :-)
Thanks for sharing, SicVic29.
MTV has exciting news:
Last week, we dropped a bombshell of OME proportions when we announced that the cast of "New Moon" will be presenting exclusive footage from their upcoming "Twilight" sequel during the MTV Movie Awards. Now we can reveal that the never-before-seen video that Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will be introducing on Sunday's live show is the movie's first trailer.Thanks Kathy and Team 6 Pack!
The stars will present the premiere of the "New Moon" trailer on the Movie Awards, airing at 9:00 pm ET on Sunday. Then at 10:45 p.m., the high-definition video will debut online. To make sure you don't miss the big premiere, you can snag our Movie Awards countdown clock right here!
Some people have been tweeting from the Montepulciano set and share very cool details. Check out tweets from bellafira, vampirefreak101, and lara82, who posted this twitpic of Dakota signing autographs below:

If you don't want to be spoiled, then you've come to the wrong place, because I'm a TwiCrack Addict, and this is my happy TwiCrack den :-)
Coral sent me a link to this YouTube video, which puts photos together from today's 'Reunion' shoot in chronological order...and it basically shows what the whole scene potentially could look like - kind of like a flip-book!
P.S. I can't get over Edward's He-Man arms. :-)
P.P.S. TwiFans has some awesome additional shots that you can check out! After all these He-Man shots, Edward's corpse-like make-up in the last shot kind of freaks me out (in a good way...I guess).

“I love this story of the gawky, awkward girl who falls in love with the brooding vampire. And I love that she can't get sexual with said vampire because when her blood gets pumping, it'll send him into a frenzy and he'll kill her. (How's that for a prophylactic?)”Read the entire article here.
I love hearing the dark secret histories of how the other vampires were turned into vampires. And I love when Edward gets all huffy with Jacob the werewolf — oh my God, I'm on the verge of writing fan-fic here — but again, in case you missed it, I love this story.
But for the most part, I've told almost no one.
Because as a man, this book is not supposed to be for me.
Thanks, Mrs. Meltzer; you are married to a Real Man. I can't get my husband to even touch Twilight. :-)
Last chance to turn back....
Now prepare to *Swoon* :-)
See more pics at Lainey Gossip. Thanks, Phia!
EDIT: Pop Sugar has the *worst*/best spoilers, because you can actually see the storyline unfold in your imagination.
