Last month, ‘Twilight’ heartthrob Robert Pattinson was up for the Richard Attenborough Film Awards’ British Performer of the Year. Whether it was for his stunningly good looks or his work, fans voted and got him the win!
The votes are in. Robert Pattinson fans pulled through and got Rob to the top. Twi-hards or just plain old Rob fans came together to make sure Rob was chosen as the 2013 recipient of the Richard Attenborough Film Awards British Performer of the Year for his role as Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.
Rob was up against some of Britain’s best actors, including Christian Bale (The Dark Knight Rises), Emily Blunt (The Five Year Engagement), Daniel Craig (Skyfall), Judi Dench (Skyfall), Colin Firth (Gambit), Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man), Keira Knightley (Anna Karenina), Emma Watson: The Perks Of Being A Wallflower and Rachel Weisz (The Bourne Legacy.)
Unlike these other candidates, Rob is no stranger to the RAFA. This definitely wasn’t his first rodeo (nor will it be his last!) as Rob won last year’s award for his performance in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.
Rob has had quite the year with his performances in Twilight, Cosmopolis and Bel Ami. He was bound to win the award one way or another.
Very well deserved, Rob!
Do you think Robert Pattinson should have won the British Performer of the Year award, Hollywoodlifers?
