The Nominations Are In: Bella Thorne Gets The Teen Choice Nod She Begged For

The Nominations Are In: Bella Thorne Gets The Teen Choice Nod She Begged For featureThe nominations are out for the 2017 Teen Choice Awards on Fox, and it looks like one star’s Hollywood dreams are coming true. Bella Thorne campaigned hard for a 2017 nod, and she got one.

Bella is the only actress not from the show “Pretty Little Liars” who is nominated for “Choice Drama TV Actress” for her work on “Famous In Love.” Hopefully, it goes better than last year for her.

But Bella can’t hold a candle to Hailee Steinfeld, who’s up in the categories for “Choice Female Artist,” “Choice Song Female Artist” for “Most Girls,” and “Choice Drama Movie Actress” for “Edge of Seventeen.”

Emma Watson Wins MTV’s First Gender Neutral Award And Piers Morgan Is Triggered

Emma Watson Wins First Gender Neutral MTV Movie Award For Best Actor featureEmma Watson’s political leanings merged once again with her film career on Sunday night as the actress found herself at the center of the latest culture war over gender, feminism and the arts. As the winner of “Best Actor in a Movie” award from the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, Emma kicked off debate over the award’s new gender neutral status with her acceptance speech.

“The first acting award in history that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience,” Emma said to open her speech.

“MTV’s move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone,” she continued. “But to me it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and that doesn’t need to be separated into two different categories.”

Emma Watson Answers Burning Questions While Covered In Kittens

Emma Watson Answers Burning Questions While Covered In Kittens“Beauty and the Beast” has officially arrived in theaters. As an early celebration, Emma Watson took part in a short interview conducted through Buzzfeed with kittens. A lot of kittens. Emma answered a few fan-generated questions while covered in a bunch of tiny cats and she revealed some interesting tidbits about herself and her latest movie.

Emma admits to keeping part of Belle’s costume for herself and she explains her thoughts on the character’s life after marrying the Beast.  She also reveals how the cast celebrated the final dance scene with a giant conga line. “It was the most surreal thing I’ve ever seen—everyone in costume in the Beauty and the Beast‘ ballroom doing the conga,” she said.

While many have a hard time viewing Emma and her former “Harry Potter” cast mates as anything more than their characters from that franchise, Belle is not so different from her most famous role. “Hermione and Belle are like perfect head and heart girls—they have both,” Emma explains. “They’re super smart but they also have this incredible empathy and compassion and ability to see, kind of, beyond things and be nonjudgmental.”

No interview with Emma would be complete without a few feminist-based question. The actress recognizes that we, as a society, still have a long way to go. Many of her passions fall in the realm of social justice and, despite her strength, she has been no stranger to wanting to give up.

“When people have told me that I can’t do something, it’s going to be too hard, or whatever else, I try to use that as motivation,” she says. “Sometimes someone telling you that you won’t be able to do something, I’m like, ‘Oh, you don’t know what you just did.'”
