‘The Twilight Saga’ Triumphs At Critics Choice Awards For Favorite Film Franchise

Last night’s 18th Annual Critics Choice Awards saw The Twilight Saga win the fan voted Favorite Film Franchise prize.

As previously reported by TheInquisitr, the category is the first time in the event’s history that ordinary voters were included.

Other prizes at the Critics Choice Awards were selected by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, which consists of around 250 voter members working in local and national television, radio and online outlets.

As one might expect, Twilight fans mobilized and delivered a resounding win for the The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 — which was the specific film in contention.

It’s been something of a record week for The Twilight Saga.

The Critics’ Choice accolade follows a win for Favorite Movie Fan Following at the People’s Choice Awards earlier this week, Nerdles reports.

Among the contenders for the Favorite Film Franchise award were a veritable who’s who of blockbuster titles:

Batman (The Dark Knight Rises)
Harry Potter (Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2)
Indiana Jones (Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull)
James Bond (Skyfall)
Lord Of The Rings (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey)
Spider-Man (The Amazing Spider-Man)
Star Trek (Star Trek Into Darkness)
Star Wars (Star Wars VII)
Toy Story (Toy Story 3)

In such mega-film company, Twilight’s triumph is all the more impressive. A point noted by Amanda Bell at Twilight Examiner who wrote that the series’ fans earned last night’s win.
