Daniel Radcliffe Dane de Haan Gay Kiss: Kill Your Darlings. Guess who’s campaigning to win the MTV Best Kiss Award? It’s Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe! We’re not sure if he and his kissing partner, Dane de Haan, deserve the award because we still have to see their movie, Kill Your Darlings to find out whether it is really award worthy.
Even if their smooch is award worthy, it is still premature to declare them the winner because other movie kissing couples might deserve it more. Hehe.
Here’s what Radcliffe says about his gay kiss with Dane (via Vulture):
And the two of you have already made out, so you’ve gotten that out of the way.
Exactly. [Laughs.] It would have been awkward to have that happen later.
Many of your fans are already obsessed with that kiss, sight unseen. I hope you’re prepared to see it immortalized in animated GIFs until the end of time.
You know, I think that will be wonderful! Dane and I are banging the drum already because we want the MTV Best Kiss award. We want that golden popcorn! To my knowledge, a sincere, passionate, romantic gay kiss has never won, so I think that would be a very cool thing for this movie to receive.
Contrary to what Daniel believes, several onscreen gay couples have already won the best kiss award. We have highlighted them in the list of winners below:
MTV Best Kiss Award from 1992 to 2012 (via wikipedia):

1994 – Demi Moore & Woody Harrelson for Indecent Proposal
1995 – Jim Carrey & Lauren Holly for Dumb and Dumber
1996 – Natasha Henstridge and Anthony Guidera for Species
1997 – Will Smith & Vivica A. Fox for Independence Day

2011 – Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
2012 – Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1
Looks like Daniel and Dane have a pretty good chance of having their wish fulfilled as MTV is obviously very gay friendly. But can they beat the juggernaut that is Twilight’s Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson who have been winning the past four years?
Now, is there a Best Hug Award? If there isn’t none, the MTV gods should include one. There can’t be a best kiss award when there ain’t no best hug award, right?
We think Daniel has a better chance of winning a best hug award based on this photo of him hugging Kill Your Darlings co-star Jack Huston.
