And the award for Weirdest Dress with Fakest Smile goes to ...



Actress Emma Watson, who just agreed to pose nude for James Houston's environmental awareness book Natural Beauty, can add to her accolades, courtesy of MTV. She will get the network's second annual Trailblazer Award for her unique career at the MTV Movie Awards on April 14. Isn't she just 22?

That's enough for MTV, who is handing out the award to exceptional young actors; Emma Stone won the first one last year. Wait, there seems to be a lot of Emmas winning this ...

"Emma Watson endeared herself to fans as one of the most beloved and iconic characters of her generation," Stephen Friedman, President of MTV, told People in a statement. "She's been a constant presence in the lives of our audience for more than a decade and is continuing to challenge her craft with upcoming roles as radically diverse as her enormous talent."

It's been a swift and steady rise for the Harry Potter star: She has three nominations at the Movie Awards for The Perks of Being a Wallflower, then has Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring coming up, followed by Noah with Russell Crowe. They aren't even out yet and she's already won the award. Take that, James Franco.
