Emma Watson is being honored at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. She will be the second person to receive MTV’s annual Trailblazer Award – which honors young actors who are actively carving out their own unique and diverse path in the film industry.
The 22-year-old actress is also nominated for three awards for her role in The Perks of Being A Wallflower: Best Female Performance, Best Kiss and Best Musical Moment.
Stephen Friedman, President of MTV, said in a statement, “Emma Watson endeared herself to fans as one of the most beloved and iconic characters of her generation. 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.”
The 2013 MTV Movie Awards airs on April 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Last week Emma expressed her amazement on her growing popularity on Twitter.
She tweeted: “Nearly 6 million followers!! Crickey, Blimey O’Reilly and Holy Cricket.”
