Wow, you guys, it’s incredible to realize we’ve reached the peak of our Celeb of the Year tournament.
This competition was not for the faint of heart. We started off with 99 of the year’s biggest celebs and put the task of naming a champion in your hands. In the end, the final matchup was the most agonizing and also one of the closest: Who would walk away with the title? Would it be Robert Pattinson or would it be Kristen Stewart? The votes are in.
So who is your 2010 Celeb of the Year?
(Who would have ever imagined.)
The race was close right up to the end, but ultimately Pattinson’s 6,430 votes (51.5 percent) won out over Stewart’s 6,063 votes (48.5 percent). Could this be considered an upset?
While both actors shared in the success of this summer’s third Twilight installment, Eclipse, which brought in more than $300 million at the box office, it seemed Stewart had the more noteworthy year, career-wise. Her two other films, The Runaways and Welcome to the Rileys, both earned the actress solid critical and audience acclaim, further establishing her as more than just Bella Swan. Pattinson’s other film, Remember Me, on the other hand…Well, critics and audiences had other thoughts on that one.
But the people have spoken and here’s to the winner and everyone else who fought for the top spot! (Keep it up, Betty White!) Better luck in 2011.
