Drumroll, please! Sixty-four stars, five weeks of intense voting and shocking eliminations and one wild card round later. Once again E!’s Celeb of the Year is Robert Pattinson. Which means that the Twilight heartthrob has officially won the tournament three years in a row (in 2009 he came in second place, losing to…Adam Lambert?!).
For his hat trick, R.Pattz can thank his legions of dedicated fans, who endlessly voted to get him to the top spot with the fervor of, well, a Twi-hard.
Sorry about it, Ian Somerhalder (we still love you). So what justifies Mr. Edward Cullen’s victory this year? Take a look back at the top 10 biggest stories of 2012, Let us count the ways: Well, there were the movies. He got down and dirty in Bel Ami (though better we forget about that one). He wowed in Cosmopolis and dominated Cannes with its debut and then there was a little picture called The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.
And there was the controversy—what would a year in the life of Robsten be without it?! 2012 kicked off with the perennially “are they or aren’t they?” that comes with any franchise coupledom. Then the summer happened, and Kristen Stewart and her Snow White and the Huntman director Rupert Sanders were involved little cheating scandal. But Robsten remains unbroken. Yay!
And the hair? Perfect as ever. Guy gone wild! R.Pattz was offerred $100,000 to do…what? But Twilight is over now so there’s no chance Rob could win again next year, right? He’s got a handful of films in the pipeline: The Rover (an Australian western), Queen of the Desert (where he’ll play Laurence of Arabia) and Maps to the Stars (which will reunite him with director David Cronenberg). Just to name a few.
And we can’t even begin to predict what will happen next with K.Stew.
On second thought, Rob might just keep winning until the end of time….congrats to him
