Hunky Brit star Robert Pattinson has decided to skip tonight's People's Choice awards.

Pattinson, who has been nominated as Favorite Actor for his role as Edward Cullen in the "Twilight" phenom, was expected to be the big hit of the evening.

However, "Twilight" fans get the runner-up prize as his co-star Taylor Lautner will appear in person.

Taylor was nominated for Favorite Breakout Movie Actor and Favorite Movie and On-Screen Team with Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

Taylor's former love Taylor Swift is also down to perform along with Kellan Lutz, Ryan Reynolds Carrie Underwood, Mary J. Blige and Cobra Starship.
