Stephenie Meyer said in a press release "I don't think any other author has had a more positive experience with the makers of her movie adaptation than I have had with Summit Entertainment. I'm thrilled to have the chance to work with them again on 'New Moon.'"
Meanwhile Deadline Hollywood Daily has heard an interesting rumor - in an effort to contain costs and keep the films at a modest budget level, Summit Entertainment is apparently considering plans to film "New Moon" and the third book "Eclipse" back-to-back.
"I don't know what to say. I would have given it to Coldplay," said Brown, who won artist of the year, male pop/rock artist and male soul/R&B artist.
Kanye West, still sore at losing male rap/hip-hop artist last year, won the trophy this time – then said Lil Wayne deserved it more.
"I want to give this award to Wayne," he said. "If it was last year it would have been my award."
It was West's second trophy of the night, following his win for rap/hip-hop album, for Graduation.
"It's our responsibility as musicians to push music to the point it was in the '60s and '70s," he said. "I want to be Elvis."
Host Jimmy Kimmel, who had made West's ego a running joke, quipped: "Elvis died on the toilet with half a jelly doughnut in his mouth. You may want to rethink that." (read more)

Bronx Mowgli Wentz weighed 7 lbs., 11 oz., and was 20 1/2 inches long.
"Ashlee, Pete and baby Bronx are all healthy and happy, and thank everyone for their well wishes!" a spokesperson tells PEOPLE.
Simpson-Wentz, 24, and the Fall Out Boy bassist, 29, announced her pregnancy in May, a few weeks after their opulent Alice's Adventures In Wonderland-themed wedding.
"I would love to have a big family one day," Simpson-Wentz told PEOPLE at the time. Added Wentz: "A big soccer team or a band!"
And, as her dad, Joe Simpson, recently put it to PEOPLE: "The day she found out she was pregnant, she became a woman."
Wentz, meanwhile, has been leaning on rocker pal Joel Madden – dad to 9-month-old Harlow with girlfriend Nicole Richie – for tips on fatherhood. "Joel gives me advice," Wentz recently told PEOPLE. "[It's] been really awesome for me to go to another person my age."
Richie and Harlow were guests at Simpson-Wentz's Winnie the Pooh-themed baby shower on Nov. 1.
Wentz also has another kind of baby on the way: Fall Out Boy's third album, Folie A Deux, will be released on Dec. 16.

The opening number will include “Genie in a Bottle,” “Fighter”, “Beautiful,” “Keeps Getting Better” and “Dirrty,” a source close to the show tells Us.
Other performers for the big show include Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Rihanna as well as Mariah Carey, with whom Aguilera she famously feuded in 2006.
In a statement to UsMagazine, Dick Clark Productions President Orly Adelson said: “We are very excited to have Christina Aguilera perform at this year’s show. She raises the bar with each live performance and you can expect something special at the 2008 ‘American Music Awards.’”
This will mark singer’s second performance since giving birth to 11-month-old son Max.
"Vampires definitely are sexy," he tells PEOPLE. "The mystery that surrounds them is kind of what's sexy."
But the transformation for the film's character wasn't as easy – or sexy – says Gigandet, 26, had to wear red-and-black contacts 12 hours a day.
"We were always so dirty and everything," he says. You always had dirt in your eyes. It was kind of miserable."
As for his character's long locks, Gigandet confesses that it's a wig. In real life, the actor's hair is short, and he only had a month before they started shooting the film so he didn’t have time to grow it longer.
"Hopefully, one day I could actually tough it out and get it longer,” he says. "I kind of love long hair. It's kind of fun.”
The movie, which based on the popular book series by Stephenie Meyer, opens nationwide in theaters Friday.
He's a triple threat: a star who can sing, dance and wield a weapon. At 6 ft. 2 in., all scruff and biceps, Hugh Jackman looms large in the epic Australia, which he says kept him "dirty 95 percent of the time" and left people stammering, "Oh ... my ... God," according to costar Nicole Kidman, who adds, "Women's jaws drop when Hugh walks into a room." Jackman's wife of 12 years, Deborra-Lee Furness, calls his perfect form "the Body of Doom – but I like what's inside": a romantic who sings ballads at home and makes pancakes for Oscar, 8, and Ava, 3. A hard body with a soft center – 2008's Sexiest Man Alive sat down with PEOPLE's Elizabeth Leonard and Julie Jordan to reveal most of his secrets.
You turned 40 Oct. 12 and now you're the Sexiest Man Alive. What was your wife's response? God bless her, she said, "I could've told them that years ago!" And then she said, "Obviously, Brad wasn't available this year." And I said, "That was a joke, right?"
Your marriage is a success story. In my early 20s, I didn't have a regular girlfriend. I was single and really happy about it. And then when I was 26, I met Deb on [the Australian TV show] Correlli. She was my leading lady. It was just undeniable. I started planning to propose to her at about three months. We are happy. Deb and my kids have been the best things that have ever happened to me, without a doubt.

"You know, I don't really talk about my sexual orientation. I didn't feel like I had to. I was just living my life, not necessarily in the closet, but I was living my life," Sykes told a crowd at a gay rights rally in Las Vegas on Saturday.
"Everybody that knows me personally they know I'm gay. But that's the way people should be able to live their lives," she said.
Sykes, who is known for her feisty and blunt style, said the passage of California's Proposition 8 made her feel like she was "attacked."
"Now, I gotta get in their face," she said. "I'm proud to be a woman. I'm proud to be a black woman, and I'm proud to be gay."Sykes' appearance at the Las Vegas rally surprised organizers. She was in town performing at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

When asked about her candid interview with Vogue, and its cover line calling Angelina Jolie's past behavior "really uncool," Aniston says she was merely responding to the reporter's question. "I basically just answered it as honestly as I could," Aniston says on The Oprah Winfrey Show, airing Thursday.
The actress has kinder words for ex-husband Brad Pitt, saying, "He's done some amazing things in the last couple of years. So I just think he's doing great."
And she doesn't seem to have any feelings of competition with her ex, whose movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, is opening the same day her upcoming film, Marley and Me.
"We all want our movie to do well ... Can we have a tie?" she quips.
As for her romantic life, she echoes her comments to Vogue. "I've been unbelievably lucky in love," she tells Winfrey. "It just might not look the way it’s supposed to look at this point."
Aniston also opens up about John Mayer – and addresses those pregnancy rumors – on Thursday's show.
