Emma Watson Trailblazer Award

The Harry Potter alum will be receiving the Trailblazer Award at tonight's MTV Movie Awards.

Anyone else think she's getting it in part for amply denying she's going to star in the 50 Shades Of Grey films? Because it certainly wasn't for her performance in Perks Of Being a Wallflower, which didn't showcase her awesomeness, in my opinion. That said, the versatile actress has proven she can manage school and acting, and she's just so adorable and sweet, it hurts.

She's pretty humble about the award, so you gotta love that. The British actress said of winning it, "Gosh, well, I just, I was like, I don't deserve this. This is way too nice," she said about her initial reaction to the award. "It is meaningful for me because I really loved making 'Perks.' It was a movie that was very special for me and the award came kind of after that movie. So I guess it feels like it's very related to that and that was really special to me. [I'm] just really honored and it just really makes me want to keep doing great work and not let anyone down." 

Aw shucks! I look forward to her performance in Bling Ring, which looks like a better version of Spring Breakers.
