More Twilighters to Receive Young Hollywood Award



By Kim Palacios

Via a tip from the Twilightish Blog, I learned this morning that Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed have each been announced as recipients of a 2010 Young Hollywood Award. On May 13th, Greene will be named “Young Hollywood Style Icon” while Reed will enjoy the designation of “Young Hollywood Superstar in the Making”.

Though most secondary cast characters are under-emphasized in the Twilight Saga films, Greene and Reed are not the first to gain wider recognition. Anna Kendrick’s Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in “Up in the Air” is the highest accolade boasted thus far by any “Twilight” star. Other notable performances include those by Elizabeth Reaser in “Gray’s Anatomy”, for which she received both Emmy and SAG Award nominations. Dakota Fanning was also nominated for a SAG award for her performance in “I am Sam”, as was Sarah Clarke for her ensemble performance in “24”.

Other awards received by Twilighters for non-“Twilight” performances fall primarily in the niche, festival, or independent realm. Robert Pattinson’s sole non-“Twilight” win was awarded by the Strasbourg International Film Festival—he was honored with a “Best Actor” designation for his performance in “How to Be”.

Nikki Reed won both acting and screenwriting (with Katherine Hardwicke) awards for her 2003 hit, “Thirteen” (most notably, an Independent Spirit Award). Speaking of Katherine Hardwicke, the “Twilight” director is a former recipient of prior year Young Hollywood Award (“Best Director” in 2009 for “Twilight”), as are Cam Gigandet (“One to Watch” in 2008, presumably for “Twilight”), and Nikki Reed once again, earlier in her career (“One to Watch” in 2003 for “Thirteen”).
