EOnLine' Celeb of the Year: Robert Pattinson
The race was close right up to the end, but ultimately Pattinson's 6,430 votes (51.5 percent) won out over Stewart's 6,063 votes (48.5 percent). Could this be considered an upset?
While both actors shared in the success of this summer's third Twilight installment, Eclipse, which brought in more than $300 million at the box office, it seemed Stewart had the more noteworthy year, career-wise. Her two other films, The Runaways and Welcome to the Rileys, both earned the actress solid critical and audience acclaim, further establishing her as more than just Bella Swan. Pattinson's other film, Remember Me, on the other hand...Well, critics and audiences had other thoughts on that one.
But the people have spoken and here's to the winner and everyone else who fought for the top spot! (Keep it up, Betty White!) Better luck in 2011.
1. Kristen Stewart
Not only did she share in the huge success of Eclipse, the third Twilight installment, which brought in more than $300 million at the box office, she effectively broke out of her role as Bella Swan with two other well-received flicks. Stewart's appearances in Welcome to the Rileys and The Runaways were both praised by critics and audiences and earned her the runner-up spot in our Celeb of the Year tournament.
At least that's over. lol Congratulations to both Rob and Kristen! They both deserve to be at #1!
