About being like Hermione (2007): "Obviously I'm a bit geeky, a bit nerdy like she is, underneath it all - we both love school. I love to learn."

Emma Nominated for Shorty Award

Emma Watson has been nominated in this year’s Shorty Awards which “honor the best of social media by recognizing the influencers, brands and organizations on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, Snapchat, Vine and more.” Emma is nominated in the Activism category. Fans may vote for her once per day through 18 February at the Shorty Awards website.

It only took twelve hours after actress Emma Watson’s speech launching the equal rights solidarity campaign #HeForShe at the UN Headquarters for the online death threats roll in, but, in Emma’s characteristically classy style, she used the publicity to her advantage—partnering with JP Morgan Chase, Emma got #HeForShe banners on Chase ATM screens nationwide. In 2015, her live International Women’s Day talk on Facebook garnered millions of views, and her interview with Malala Yousafzai—where Malala thanked Watson for helping her come to terms with calling herself a feminist—inspired Emma to announce on Facebook it was her “most moving day.” – from Emma’s nomination profile

    Nice,it’s cool to see someone do something they believe in,it is sad hear about the threats,they should know everyone in the world is different,all kinds of things are surfacing now that it is 2016.! I don’t know what heforshe is,but if Emma is for it and it’s not hurting anyone- cool.! Remember parents are the teachers of kids-the world has been showing hate- lets all make the history books shine for once as a world (all of our home).! Just a world wish & just my opinion.!
