I have nothing against the ‘Twilight’ kids, but wouldn’t it be great to see the gorgeous, and phenomenally talented, Emma walk away with the People’s Choice award?
Twilight mania has swept the world — again, and again, and again, and again. And while I have nothing against the lovely Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, do you know what would make tonight’s People Choice Awards amazing? If the awesome, talented, stylish and gorgeous Emma Watson walked away with the award for “Favorite Movie Star Under 25″ over Rob, Kristen, Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron.
Now once again, before Twi-hards try and hunt me down for such slanderous statements, it is nothing against Rob and Kristen. They are great, they are incredibly hardworking, they make the Twilight films work — but they have more than enough awards for one lifetime.
Emma meanwhile has quietly been working away for almost ten years now. In addition to her amazing Harry Potter work she did great voice work in The Tale of Despereaux and is really stepping into the big leagues with her next role in My Week with Marilyn, alongside the phenomenally talented Michelle Williams.
Furthermore, one would be hard pressed to find a better role model for young women than Emma. She has been completely devoid of any scandal and manages to balance her film career with her education, attending the incredibly prestigious Brown University.
On another, slightly more shallow level, Emma is without doubt one of the best dressed women in Hollywood, never looking anything less than perfect.
So, just for this once, I hope Rob and Kristen get a break from the podium and Emma is able to snag just one of the many honors she deserves just as much as her peers.
