Robert Pattinson wins Performance of the Year at UK’s National Movie Awards

By Kim Palacios

HollywoodNews.com: For the Best Performance of the Year 2010 category of the National Movie Awards, the UK honored one of its own. Beating out 18 other nominees (including “New Moon” co-stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner), Robert Pattinson walked away with the prize.

Though Rob wasn’t there to accept the award himself, the show aired his acceptance speech as part of a video statement: “As you can see, I’m on location shooting my next film, ‘Water for Elephants’. Thank you for honoring me with the award for ‘Best Performance’. It means a lot to me because you, the fans, decide the winner. Thank you again for voting for me and voting for everything Twilight.”

The UK-based 2010 National Movie Awards aired tonight in London at 8PM local time. Though not all Twilight actors managed to score wins, the franchise did as well as it possibly could. Kristen and Taylor lost to Rob in the ‘Best Performance of the Year’ category, but “New Moon” and “Eclipse” both won in the categories in which they were nominated: ‘Best Movie: Fantasy’ and ‘Most Anticipated Movie of the Summer’, respectively.

Though Rob has been written off by some as a dispensable beyond the world of Twilight, current projects with Oscar-winning co-stars and, certainly, this award, are coming just in time. Fans who believe in the actor are thrilled by accelerating signals of Rob’s artistic credibility.

    I am a huge fan and have never had a doubt about his acting ability or his graciousness. His performance in Little Ashes was mesmerizing and his ability to make a century old vampire a heartthrob not only for teens but for their mothers and grandmothers as well says something about his acting ability. His performance in Remember Me as an angry young New Yorker sealed his stardom for me. I will see all things Rob Pattinson including Bel Ami and Water for Elephants when they are released and I already have my ticket for the midnight showing of Eclipse when I can immerse myself once again in the world of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. His scenes in New Moon are the only ones that I watch over and over. He deserves every accolade he receives.
