About David Yates directing OotP (2007): "He was perfect for this. I don't know if he could have directed any of the other ones. This was his story to tell. He's quiet, thoughtful, sensitive. Mike (Newell, director of Goblet of Fire) would sit in his chair and yell at us, or stand up and just be very loud and British. Whereas David will think for a bit, he'll come over, speak a few words, keep it to a minimum. The thing that always comes up with David is finding truth in the characters, truth in the performance, make it real."

Monday, January 8th, 2018

Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson presented the award for “Limited Series or TV Movie” at the Golden Globes. I’m going to assume that originally there was supposed to be a bit of the usual banter between them, but with the show running late this was cut. Well.

Emma Receives Woman of the Year at Elle Style Awards

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

Emma Watson was awarded “Woman of the Year” in recognition of her campaigning for gender equality at the ELLE Style Awards on Monday.

Emma spoke of the current political turmoil in the US, and the recent Women’s March on Washington she took part in. “That has been the upside of the downsides of late which is difficult times, but also this emerging, very cohesive group of women that are being very vocal and showing real solidarity. The fact that we managed to organise one of the most peaceful, largest protests in history, says so much about what we can achieve and about us as a group. It feels very exciting.”

Emma is Elle UK Woman of the Year

Thursday, February 9th, 2017

Emma Watson is Elle UK’s 2017 Woman of the Year and will cover the March issue of the magazine. Emma talks about being cast as Belle in Beauty and the Beast, activism and her book club.

Belle, the perfect role. ‘For me, Beauty was the perfect, most joyful thing to do… There was something connected about Hermione and Belle, and it was good to be reminded that I am an actress; this is what I do. The film is pure escapism.’

Why she took a year off from acting to concentrate on activism. ‘It wasn’t about me necessarily proving anything… I was just thinking that I have this year to myself, so let’s see what we can do to ‘move the needle’ and make a difference.’

How does she handle critics? ‘It really toughened me up…There is a level of criticism that comes with being an actress and a public figure, which I expect, but once you take a stance on something like feminism, that’s a completely different ball game.’

She set up her book club, Our Shared Shelf, to focus on feminist issues. Will she write her own book? ‘I need to see and do a bit more first… I’m no expert, and when people push me into a corner of “here’s Emma Watson to lecture you on feminism”, it’s uncomfortable because I am aware I have a long way to go. I am not sure I deserve all the respect I get yet, but I’m working on it.’

Emma will be awarded Woman of the Year at the Elle Style Awards, 13 February, and the March issue of Elle is on sale the 14th.

Emma Nominated for Shorty Award

Thursday, January 21st, 2016

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
