Kristen Stewart named our “Hollywood Hot Female Star of the Year”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: To millions – or perhaps billions – of “Twilight” fans, she’ll always be Bella.

But in 2010, Kristen Stewart made great strides in convincing Hollywood she was capable of playing other roles outside of Stephenie Meyer’s vampires-and-werewolves franchise.

Like punk-rock pioneer Joan Jett in “The Runaways.”

Or a wayward prostitute seeking emotional connections in “Welcome to the Rileys.”

Of course, those who have been paying attention know that Stewart holds tremendous promise for a post-“Twilight” career. She earned raves for her work in “Adventureland” and “Into the Wild.” She’s been doing excellent work since “The Safety of Objects” and “Panic Room.”

But it was “Twilight” that put her on the map … and in the tabloids’ crosshairs. And it is there where she is likely to stay until the second “Breaking Dawn” comes out in 2012. Until then, Stewart will continue to burn up Hollywood’s headlines as gossip hounds seek any morsel of information regarding her personal life or relationship with “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson.

Is there any doubt, then, that Kristen Stewart would be named our “Hollywood Hot Female Movie Star of the Year” for 2010? Keep it coming, Kristen. We’re eagerly awaiting your next move.

    Kristen may be a “star” but I will never consider her an actress. The girl has no talent, and she’s only getting all this publicity because of Twilight. If she had never been cast as Bella, she wouldn’t be getting all this praise. She’s a one-note performer with no range.

    Well put, Sean. Despite all the haters out there, Kristen is a beautiful, extremely talented actress with many many many fans. She will be around for a long time, and I expect more thoughtful and dramatic performances from her in the future. She reminds me of a young Jodie Foster. Go do your thing Kristen! She deserves all the accolades she gets.

    There’s plenty of doubt about her acting and unfortunately, all the good reviews in the world don’t sell tickets. Fans aren’t paying to see her in Twilight, she’s just there. Moviegoers avoided her indy films like the plague. She’s about to be nominated for a Razzie, she’s in the top 3 of ten possible nominations. Too bad that’s the only acting award she’s up for this year. The Razzie Mod said this about her: As for Kristen Stewart, I don ‘t know of anyone who found her pouty, breathless, ludicrously brooding performance in ECLIPSE appealing. I’d have to agree with him, and she does the same things in every single film. That’s not acting. When Twilight is over, so is her fame and fortune.
