Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart teamed up to introduce a homage to horror films which are often excluded from prestigious awards, even the Oscars. This special clip is made to serve Oscars producers Adam Shankman and Bill Mechanic's mission to celebrate the year in movies.

"Although the most popular genre of film is horror, and although it gave a start of career to a lot of people in this room, somehow it doesn't command to the respect it deserves," Lautner said. "It's been 37 years since horror has its place on the show, when 'The Exorcist' picked up two Academy Awards," Stewart chimed in before clearing her throat.

The montage then plays clips of "Jaws", "Sleepy Hollow", "The Ring", "Scream" and also Lautner and Stewart's co-starring film "Twilight".

Just before Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart came on the stage, hosts Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin presented a spoof of horror film "Paranormal Activity".

The 82nd Annual Academy Awards is taking place at Kodak Theater, Hollywood on Sunday, March 7. ABC is airing the gala live.

Yes her dress was beautiful and she was probably nervous but am I the only one who noticed how awkward and fidgity she was. She cleared her throat pretty grossly for live tv and kept messing with the back of her hair.Tayloreven stared at her. He on the other hand was a class act.

Kristen was stunning in her midnight blue dress. It fit her perfectly and her skin is so flawless... what a natural beauty! Kristen will be nominated one day soon; she's on her way that's for sure! And like John said, she's only 19 years old and has let everyone know that she is nervous at being on stage in front of all those actors she admires so much. I can relate to her awkwardness and shyness; people used to think I was stuck up when instead I was extremely shy and uncomfortable in large crowds. People mistake her social anxiety for her "not wanting to be there"... I know because it happens to me all the time. She'll be fine, my social anxiety has gotten better over the years and people don't really know I have it now. Way to go Kristen, everyone is so proud of you and what a talented actress you are!

Kristen was beautiful minus the mucus throat clearing and Taylor Lautner was drop dead handsome with a bag of chips. And am glad Rob wasn't there, didn't want to see him. And the rest of the show was great!

Kristen looked beautiful in her black dress and the way her hair was styled. For thos people who think that she was a little nervious I would remind them that she is only 19 and readily admits that she gets nervious on stage before such a large crowd of her peers. Give her a break. She will get better with age and experience. Whatever her performance at these presentations no one can deny her very talented acting abilities. If you doubt this watch her performance in the movie "The Cake Eaters" A truly amazing performance worthy of an oscar.
