The lead roles in both films are being recognized--Kristen Stewart is up for Female Performance, while Rob Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are both vying for Breakthrough Male Performance. On the Slumdog side, real life couple Freida Pinto and Dev Patel are up for Breakthrough Female and Male Performances.
