"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1" beat out "The Hunger Games" in the coveted Best Kiss category at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards.

Kristen Stewart was forced to accept the Golden Popcorn statue solo at the tween skewing awards show. Her co-star and co-kisser Robert Pattinson was not in attendance, robbing RPatz and KStew lovers of another sliver of tonsil hockey. 

The actress tried to convince her "Snow White and the Huntsman" co-stars Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth to join her onstage, as well as Pattinson's onscreen rival for her affections, Taylor Lautner — but found no takers. 

Left without a partner, Stewart had no choice but to mime kissing herself. 

But weep not for Katniss. Jennifer Lawrence picked up the statue for Best Female Performance, beating out a group that included "Bridesmaids" star Kristen Wiig and "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"s' Rooney Mara. 

Stewart was not nominated in the category, sparing the young adult icons another face-off.
