Calling “Twilight” a hot property would be like calling Justin Bieber “well-liked” by his fans — technically true, but a total understatement. Sure, for every Twihard, there’s a naysayer putting the books and movies down. Still, the pool of contenders who were vying to direct the final two installments of the film franchise included some real Hollywood heavyweights, indicating more than a modicum of r-e-s-p-e-c-t from the film community. The Oscar-friendly candidates included Bill Condon, Sofia Coppola and Gus Van Sant.

Obviously, Bill won the honor, but Gus opened up about the selection process when we caught up with him at the Cannes Film Festival. So what’s going through the mind of an Oscar-nominated director during an “audition” for a job?

“I got very nervous,” Gus revealed. “There were like 15 people. I had never really auditioned or gone into a job interview in that way since maybe 1988 or ’87. I guess I was unprepared for that. Usually people just hire me.”

When it came to helming “Breaking Dawn,” demonstrated talent behind the camera wasn’t enough — the producers wanted someone with a vision that would honor the book.

“In this case, they wanted me to talk about their project, which really needed to follow very closely the book, and which the outline was following very closely the book,” Gus said. “So there was a certain amount of room for illumination, I think, on their own project, but they were the experts.”

“Twilight” fans far and wide will breathe a collective sigh of relief at hearing what a priority staying true to the source material was in developing “Breaking Dawn.” Those who were rooting for Gus (that includes one Robert Pattinson, by the way, who the director says was actually responsible for his involvement with the audition process!), might be a little less happy. Van Sant said his pitch for the job probably wasn’t as in-depth as the “Twilight” gods wanted.

“I was talking about the book and really all I was saying was ‘OK, this is great, let’s go do it,’” he said. “That was my pitch and I think they’re used to something else. They’re used to, for those of you who might audition for film jobs, they’re used to like a 40-minute dissertation with perhaps visual aids and a pep talk about how fantastic this project is going to be and I just didn’t know how to how do that.”

The 2011 MTV Movie Awards are less than a month away, on Sunday, June 5, and “Twilight” hunk Robert Pattinson is hoping he and Kristen Stewart can once again take home the prize for Best Kiss.

“It’s kind of terrifying if you suddenly stop winning it. You’re like, ‘Oh God!’ “Pattinson told MTV UK about his chances this year after winning at back-to-back shows.

This year, Stewart is not only nominated for kissing Pattinson in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” but also onscreen romantic rival Taylor Lautner. “It’s almost worse than if you stop winning, like, acting awards or whatever,” Pattinson continued, sharing his disappointment at the idea of losing this year. “If you can’t kiss anymore, it’s like, ‘What? I’m still good at kissing!’ ”

The film is nominated seven other times, including for Best Movie, Best Female Performance, Best Male Performance, Best Breakout Star and Best Fight, so there’s a good chance that if Pattinson doesn’t take home the Golden Popcorn for Best Kiss, he won’t go home empty-handed.

The 2011 MTV Movie Awards will be hosted by actor/comedian Jason Sudeikis and will be broadcast live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, on Sunday, June 5, at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
