There must be something magical about Emmas. A year after Emma Stone received the first-ever MTV Trailblazer Award, 22-year-old “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” actress Emma Watson will follow suit at this year’s MTV Movie Awards, airing live on Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. ET.
The Trailblazer Award honors best-in-class young actors who are actively carving out their own unique and diverse path in the film industry.
Watson first cast her spell on audiences at the tender age of 11 years old, playing precocious wizard Hermione Granger in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” Seven sequels later, the actress graduated from Hogwarts and conjured increasingly mature roles in films like “My Week With Marilyn” and “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” The latter, in which Watson played high school senior Sam, earned her three Movie Awards nominations this year: Best Female Performance, Best Kiss (with co-star Logan Lerman) and Best Musical Moment (with Lerman and Ezra Miller).
Watson can next be seen in Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring” and Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah,” co-starring Lerman.
In the meantime, Watson will accept her Trailblazer Award at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, starring “Pitch Perfect” actress Rebel Wilson as host. Also being recognized at this year’s ceremony is Will Ferrell, who will receive the first-ever Comedic Genius Award in celebration of his contributions to the world of comedy.
It all goes down on Sunday, April 14, live from the Sony Pictures Studios Lot in Culver City, California.
