Robert Pattinson Wonders Why He's At The Oscars In His #3 MTV Moment

If you ask us, Robert Pattinson officially arrived in Hollywood when "Twilight" won five Golden Popcorn statues at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards — including RPattz's nods for Best Kiss, Best Fight and Breakthrough Male Performance. But others might argue his Tinseltown coming-out party occurred a few months earlier.

In late February '09, after a weeklong series of rumors had whipped the Twi-nation into a frenzy, Pattinson walked onto an Academy Awards red carpet for the first time. He was not there because he was nominated, but simply because the Academy could not ignore the vampire phenomenon that had ignited the box office — and too many tween hearts to count — the previous fall. It was the biggest night in Hollywood, after all, and its biggest new star just had to be there. Not that he could quite wrap his head around the idea.

"It's insane," Pattinson exclaimed when we caught up with him on the carpet. "When they first told me about this, I was like, 'No, no, no, no, no, you're joking' — or 'I'm going to have to do something really stupid like get gunged!' "
