Harry Potter and Twilight Fans Will Have To Wait

| Filed under: Harry PotterAwardzTwilight


What a bummer!

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling and Twilight author Stephenie Meyer were tapped to present an Oscar together, but no dice!

Rowling is unable to present due to "scheduling conflicts", and Meyer, being the strict Mormon she is, is prohibited from working on Sundays.

Sorry, Hollywood!

Apparently religion trumps the Academy Awards!

    She considers this work? No wonder she's a Mormon. Fucking idiot.

  2. 2

    What an honor for that simple-minded mormon woman to stand next to J.K. Rowling. Perhaps she can pick up a few new vocabulary words.

  3. 3

    Stephanie Meyer isn't worthy to wash Jo Rawlings feet.

  4. 4

    Is it a sin to write about vampires and stuff? Love Twilight, and her, just wondering???

  5. 5

    This is so dumb. Presenting at the Oscars is not work..

  6. 6

    steph meyers doesnt like to be in public much anyways bc she's so fat- she only did one interview after the last movie was out….and it was w oprah and only bc oprah is fatter than her…

  7. 7

    how is presenting an award considered work????? shes missing a great opportunity, cause once the twilight hype is over, shes done!

  8. 8

    JK Rowling was probably offended - and rightly so - to be presenting with Stephanie. I'm a huge Potter fan and I read the Twilight series - there is no comparison of their work. Rowling is a real writer - fabulous skills that are comparable to Tolkien (i have also read the entire trilogy of rings and the hobbit - and actually - while his mind is equal to Rowling - her writing skills are superior. Anyway - I'm sick of hearing Meyer's compared to Rowling. it's offensive to not only the author - but to literature in general.

    Meyer will be a forgotten blip soon. or blimp.

  10. 10

    Awww that would have been epic.

  11. 11

    If she was a strict Mormon she wouldn't be writing about vampires.

  12. 12

    Mormons are not prohibited from working on Sundays, they choose to because it's their sabbath day. I'm sure you wouldn't criticize a Jewish actor for not working on Saturdays, Perez…

  13. 13

    Holy shit. Stephenie Meyer is like 200 pounds now. I guess writing is a sedentary way of life. She needs to go to a gym ASAP. The pictures she puts on her book jackets are more than 10 years old.
    JRow is a much better writer than her. They're definitely not in the same league. Meyer rips off her plotlines and character names from a soap opera– Days of Our Lives. I'm surprised she hasn't been sued by them. She's been sued by another author though.

  14. 14

    Re: Myzaree – Yeah she's such the "idiot"…when you're the one judging someone based on there religion. And she's probably way more successful than you sweetheart.

  15. 15

    Meyer's writing is garbage, compared to Rowling's writing. Just sayin'

  16. 16


  17. 17

    JK Rowling is a total genius when it comes to writing and in a completely different league compared to Meyer. I'm glad she wasn't exposed to Meyer's delusional thinking that makes teenagers believe having a needy, obsessive relationship with a weirdo is somehow romantic.

    Sigh. I'm not going to rant…

  18. 18

    just because shes religious doesnt make her a moron. im not very religious but if thats what she believes, you have to be respectful of that

  19. 19

    meyers would be oblivious to the irony of the pairing..did you see that egotistical wankfest of a cameo she did in twilight…christ on his throne i hate her & let us never forget the wise words of KillerBunnies "she is the monkey that had aids and gave it to literature"

  20. 20

    People in the industry consider appearances work, because they are paid in exchange for them. Kim Kardashian made a big deal out of working on her birthday, which actually just entailed her showing up and partying at a club…..Must be nice, eh? :)

  21. 21

    Is it also strictly mormon to write about vampires and shit?

  22. 22

    You Guys Give Them A Break.
    But At The Same Time I'm Wondering The Same Things. !!

  23. 23

    I would have died. Love them both. Obviously Rowling more than Meyer, but still…wow.

    The Oscars is work?! That's crazy.

  25. 25

    Meyer is a morman cun*t!

    Re: nothanks

    Eat shit, asshole.

  27. 27

    ya she is a real mormon…if she was a real mormon she would not be writing about bloodsuckng vampires

  28. 28

    Stephanie Meyer being Mormon at least means that her life is fully committed to far fetched works of fiction.

  29. 29

    Stephanie Meyer doesn't deserve to share the same stage with J.K. Rowling. Period.

  30. 30

    Presenting at the Oscars is not work.
    Stephanie Meyer can't write for SHIT.

  31. 31

    LOLOLOLOLOL! I don't think you could consider presenting an Oscar "working". She must have never held a REAL job!

  32. 32

    Stephenie Meyer is full of shit. She doesn't wear garments, yet calls herself a strict Mormon?

  33. 33

    JKR is too good to stoop to that LEVEL!
    Why would they even invite the twilight mormon?? At least Harry Potter is actually NOMINATED for an award!!

  34. 34

    Re: Lisa W a Lil L

    Your comment is so FUNNY!!! LMFAO!

  35. 35

    Re: jessicaone0

    I don't want to sound anti-feminist, but she hasn't had a "real" job. She was a stay at home mom before she had her little wet dream about sparkly, wannabe vampires.

  36. 36

    Thank god they can't. Stephanie Meyer isn't worthy to even be in the same ROOM as Jo, let alone present an award with her!

  37. 37

    she should be writing midnight sun instead

  38. 38

    I don't think Stephenie should be criticized for being one of VERY few people in hollywood to stick to her beliefs. I respect her for not bending over backwards like every other celebrity. J.K. Rowling couldn't do it anyway so back off of just blaming Stephenie for this.

  39. Cass says – reply to this


    Stephenie Meyer isn't a particularly good writer, but sad to say, neither is JK Rowling. JKR is an incredible world builder with an amazing capacity to imagine things and translate them onto paper, but her writing itself is clichéd and formulaic. The lack of character development in the HP series really detracted from the story. I think by the end she wasn't even being truly edited, or needed an editor with a much firmer hand to guide her. The writing in HP is much better that Twlight, but since Twilight is painfully, amateurishly bad, that's not saying much.

  40. 40

    I love Twilight but are you fucking kidding me? Your not going to the Academy Awards because of your stupid fucking religion…ARE YOU A FUCKING IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!

  41. 41

    Re: nothanks – Actually most Jews are not very religous ,so most work on the sabbath but on the other hand the majority of Mormons seem to be not only bigots as evidenced in the whole prop h8 fiasco but also very culty. I'm glad Meyer won't be there. Rawlings will be missed.

  42. 42

    Ahhh, just another reason to hate Stephenie Meyer. Like we needed any.

    I can't believe they even CONSIDERED allowing that twit to be presented on the same stage as J.K. Rowling.

  43. 43

    what's the need for the slamming? seriously, we're all adults here.

  45. 45

    Why are YOU discriminating against another religion? I don't see it any different from you being gay, than she being mormon. Here's a nice comparison- Instead of being having sex with a woman, you'd rather have sex with a man. Instead of working on a Sunday, Stephenie would rather RESPECT her religion and do what feels right to her. I'm sorry "Perez" but your the MOST hypocritical person to walk the Earth.

  46. @v@ says – reply to this


    They're authors. They don't leap at the chance to show off their mug.

  47. 47

    I can respect Meyer's reason, but Rowling should just be up front and say "no, I won't be there because I hate Americans."

  48. 48

    fuck staphenie meyer bet she'll suck a dick on sunday!!! (her husbands cause she a morman!! whatever) lame

  49. 49

    Presenting at the Oscars is work??? I'm not buying this is the legit reason why Stephenie won't do it.

  50. 50

    It's funny that you're all sitting on your arses probably pulling social services or working petty jobs, having a go at them and being nasty.. while they're sitting at home living it up and rich. ones belief and religion gives no one any right to be judgemental. Let's see all of you make it big. I'm ashamed of your generation. No wonder this world is going to waste.

  51. 51

    Who the FUCK is Stephenie Meyer to even share a stage with JK Rowling???
    Stephenie cant write for SHIIIT!! Her Twilight-crap should be burned and her sexual fantasies about vampires are NOT literature.

    It's just an insult to JKR to ask her to present with Smeyer.

  52. 52


  53. 53

    ROFL OMFG. this is stupid.
    oscars > church. not that i want to see her at the oscars but why can't she go to church the day before/after? stupidness. this is one of the many reasons i am not religious.

  54. 54

    Re: smokeanddiamonds13

    Amen to that.

  55. 55

    are you seriously going to argue about who is a better writer? or who's book is better? they both are talented, they both have made a great living off of their imagination. Pangaia are you really going to say that Meyers books are for "weirdo's" and stupid relationships??? How many people do you see dressed up for all the book openings and movie openings for BOTH?! They attract different crowds. And I am sorry, but if she believes or feels that she shouldn't present at the Oscars. SO BE IT!!! that is her belief!!! that is what she feels is right!!! HOW DARE ANYONE say she is an "IDIOT" for doing what she feels is right. She doesn't owe anyone ANYTHING!!!! I'm sorry if you feel that her books are crap but she is making a lot more than you could ever dream on her crap!!!!!!!

  56. 56

    AND!!!!!!! if you do not know what Mormons believe…. don't try. Obviously you have absolutely no respect for religion or for other people. It is not a "sin" to have an imagination. and to make a living!

  57. 57

    If I were JK Rowling, I would NOT present with Stephanie Meyer. Rowling is a serious writer, someone who knows how to pull a story out of nowhere and create a whole world around it. Meyer is a retard who had a wet dream about a vampire and decided to write about it.

  58. 58

    There is nothing wrong with a Mormon writing a fiction book. Her books are PG!!! Orson Scott Card a hugely sucessful scienct fiction writer is also Mormon. There is nothing about writing books that goes against the mormon doctrine.
    Presenting an Oscar would be work for her because it is taking her away from her family and church on a Sunday in order to premote herself and her books.
    Good for her for staying true to what she believes.
    So much for tolerance of others who are different than you!!!!!

  59. 59

    oh gawd

  60. 60

    wow.. does she go out into the sun at all? jesus fucking christ shes a vampire wannabe. and her "vampires" arent even close to the ones in dracula, who are the only type.
    she isnt worthy to stant next to JK. Rowling, JK Rowling is too amazing. and writes too good haha

  61. 61

    giving someone an award isnt work. and besides shes not worthy to share a stage with jk

  62. 62

    Ok. So that explains why Twilight is such a stupid story. She's mormon. Her life is shit so even in her 40's she's dreaming of things a 12 year old is.
    Aaaaah, light has been shed unto the patheticness of it all.
    Honestly, I would ditch to mormons for the Academy Awards. Especially when it the only chance she'll ever have to be on that stage.

    JK Rowling is like a goddess nest to this piece of crap. Maybe Meyers would have learned a thing or two about the basis of writing though.

    Put Rowling with Anne Rice, the true writer of vampire chronicles instead of this pig.

  64. Ash88 says – reply to this


    I think that people need to stop being ignorant. If you are going to comment about her being mormon then get your facts straight! For one it is no "forbidden" to write about vampires! Who would think or say that!!! Two it is not "forbidden" to work on Sundays! It is like any other religion where there are outlines and it is up to each individual to chose what they want to do! We are not "forbidden" to smoke, or drink, or have sex before marriage! Mormons are like any other Christian religion and can chose for themselves what they want to follow!

    Does it occur to anybody that maybe she just doesn't want to be there! She isn't the type of person to be in the center of attention and it is her choice! I think that you are all hypocrites because I would bet everything I own that you have all seen the twilight movies or read HER books! Shame on you!

  65. 65

    Re: Sheer – amen!

  66. 66

    Whoever had the idea of having these two present something together has something seriously wrong with them. It's an insult to even compare JK Rowling to Stephenie Meyer. JK is a genius while Stephenie can barely string together an intelligent sentence.
