It’s been a pretty big year for Robert Pattinson, which is why it’s not surprising that he won our 2011 Sugar Award for best movie actor! He joins his Breaking Dawn Part 1 leading lady Kristen Stewart, who yesterday took out the best movie actress category. Aside from reprising his role as the dreamy Edward Cullen in the fourth instalment of the Twilight series, he had another turn as a leading man in Water For Elephants, the big screen adaptation of Sara Gruen’s historical novel about a travelling circus in the Depression era. Australian fans even got a glimpse of the star when he came to Sydney to promote the film with his onscreen love interest Reese Witherspoon. Up next for Robert? Different roles in Bel Ami and Cosmopolis, and one last Twilight outing in Breaking Dawn Part 2. In this category Robert beat out Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, James Franco and Michael Fassbender.
Kristen Stewart only had one movie released this year, but that was enough for our readers to crown her the best movie actress in our 2011 Sugar Awards! Considering Breaking Dawn Part 1 was one of the most anticipated films of the year (it also won our biggest movie release award, as well as BellaSugar’s beauty influencer category), we’re not surprised with the outcome. But romantic honeymoon scenes and scary birth adventures with Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) aside, 2012 is shaping up to be an even bigger year for the actress: we’ll get to see her as a tough Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman; we’ll watch her with an all-star cast in a film about the Beat Generation in On the Road; and, of course, Breaking Dawn Part 2 is out next November. Does this mean we’ll be awarding this category to Kristen again in 12 months’ time? Kristen beat Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Kristin Wiig and Jennifer Aniston.
