The year 2017 for Emma Watson have been great so far. It’s May of the year 2017, and she has already been on the cover page of Vanity Fair magazine’s March edition.
She did a great job by hiding the hardcover copies of Maya Angelou’s book Mom & Me & Mom throughout the station of New York City. There was a video of her released online doing so. Emma has a strong connection with books. “Books gave me a way to connect with my father,” she says. “Some of my most precious and treasured moments.”
Emma Watson also did something extraordinary in 2017 that I don’t think any of the other celebrities have done so far. A guy from Vanity Fair was selling the live advice of Emma Watson just for $2 at Grand Central Station in New York City. He was carrying a small booth with a camera, iPad and other equipment on it. And roaming around the station, calling out Advice from Emma just for two bucks. She did give pretty sweet advice to everyone. I loved the one when a teenager boy asked her that how can he be a better boyfriend. Me and as well as Emma Watson thinks that was pretty sweet of asking him that question. Check out the video below.
Another great thing happened in 2017 for Emma Watson is Beauty and The Beast movie. The film hit theatres on March 17, 2017. And the audience went crazy with love while watching the film. The film is so well made, and Emma looked gorgeous as Belle. She played the character so well, she sang the songs perfectly, she dressed in the most attractive ways possible. Everything about Beauty and The Beast was just incredible.
If we look at a few days back, the night of MTV Movie Awards May 07, 2017, was a great one for Emma Watson. She has won the award in best actor category. The unique thing about this award was that it was not split between genders. Yup, male and female actors were nominated under one category which was ‘best actor’ category. Emma Watson won the award for her incredible performance in Beauty and The Beast. Her speech at the awards ceremony was too good that goes like this.
Wow. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you. Firstly, I feel I have to say something about the award itself. The first acting award in history that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience. MTV’s move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone. But to me, it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. And that doesn’t need to be separated into two different categories. This is very meaningful to me. Both to be winning the award and to be receiving it from you, Asia [Kate Dillon]. Thank you for educating me in such—in such an inclusive, patient, and loving way. Thank you so much. I think I’m being given this award for a performance as an actor, but it doesn’t feel like that what it’s really for, although I am very grateful if you did think that I did a good job because the whole singing part of the situation was pretty terrifying—yeah, not kidding about that part! But more seriously, I think I am being given this award because of who Belle is and what she represents. The villagers in our fairy tale wanted to make Belle believe that the world is smaller than the way she saw it, with fewer opportunities for her—that her curiosity and passion for knowledge and her desire for more in life were grounds for alienation. I loved playing someone who didn’t listen to any of that. I’m so proud to be a part of a film that celebrates diversity, literacy, inclusion, joy, and love the way that this one does. I want to thank Linda Woolverton for writing the original Belle, Jeanne-Marie LePrince de Beaumont for writing what the animated movie was based on, and Paige O’Hara for playing Belle in the original. And I want to thank every single person who voted for me. Thank you so much. Taraji [P. Henson], I can’t see you, but Daniel [Kaluuya], James [McAvoy], Hailee [Steinfeld], all of you, it’s a privilege to have been nominated alongside you. Lastly I want to thank any one and everyone who had anything to do with giving me this opportunity and for supporting me on that journey. You know who you are, and I can’t thank you enough. Thank you so, so much.
These were some of the coolest things happened in 2017 for Emma Watson. And it’s just one part of the year. I hope that her rest of the years goes even better.
