Kristen Stewart Wins BAFTA Rising Star Award

Kristen Stewart beat out Jesse Eisenberg, Nicholas Hoult, Carey Mulligan and Tahar Rahim for the Orange Rising Star BAFTA Award tonight.

“I guess first I have to thank all the fans of Twilight for proving
again and again to be THE most devoted and attentive fans ever,” Kristen said. “Considering this is voted, credit is due to them so thank you.”

Honestly, let’s just assume anytime there’s a public vote on anything in entertainment, the Twilighters are going to come out in droves. They’d probably vote Edward for President! (Or there’d be some sort of fierce runoff between him and Jacob…but anyway). Check the speech out after the jump.

Kristen has even more to look forward to in the coming year, with her upcoming film The Runaways in which she plays Joan Jett, another film Welcome to the Rileys and of course more Twilight crazyness. Now if only she’d actually smile
