Another Movie Awards, another super-dominating victory by Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and company for "The Twilight Saga." "Eclipse," the third installment of the blockbuster franchise, took home five Golden Popcorn trophies at Sunday's show.

MTV News caught up with a few members of the wolf pack, as well as Jasper Hale, after their final big win for Best Movie, and they expressed genuine surprise and lots of gratitude about how many awards the third "Twilight" film had racked up.

"I think 'Harry Potter' was definitely a contender tonight," Tinsel Korey said of perhaps their biggest competition in the Best Movie category. "I think some of us were a little bit nervous, but we have great fans and they're dedicated."

"I thought 'Inception' would have taken it," Kiowa Gordon admitted.

"Same here," Booboo Stewart agreed. 'I thought 'Inception' was going to win, [especially] Best Fight and all that."


"It's a crazy popularity contest thing," Alex Meraz added. "But I'm very happy we're on the winning side of it. The fans have been fantastic throughout all of this; it's been a good ride."

Meraz went on to say that if their winning streak continues into next year, MTV might have to build a bigger stage to hold all of the castmembers. "Next year it's going to be crazier because there's a lot more cast, so if 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1' is the best film next year, you're going to be seeing 60 people up on that stage."

"It's always a pleasure and an honor to show up to the MTV Movie Awards, to have the fans vote and say what their favorites are," Jackson Rathbone, who plays vampire Jasper Hale, pointed out. "We were up against some hard-hitters today but hey, we came out on top. It was very exciting, a great show," he said, before giving a few props to the evening's musical acts. "The Foo Fighters killed it; I had a great time," Rathbone said. "Lupe Fiasco rocked."
