Kristen Stewart Wins Alliance Of Women Film Journalists’ Best Supporting Actress At EDA Awards
Kristen Stewart’s award-winning streak continued on Tuesday when she was named Best Actress In A Supporting Role by the Alliance Of Women Film Journalists’ EDA Awards for Clouds Of Sils Maria.
Stewart’s acclaim for the movie, in which she plays a celebrity assistant, actually began nearly a year ago. As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Stewart won the César Award for Best Supporting Actress in February 2015. She became the first American actress to receive a César, which is France’s equivalent of the Oscar.
But because the film wasn’t released in the United States until April 2015, it has qualified for many 2015-2016 honors in America, instead of 2014-2015. And some of those honors have been pouring in for Stewart. In early December, for instance, the Twilight star earned the Best Supporting Actress award from the New York Film Critics Circle.
In early January, she was given the same title by the National Society of Film Critics. And Stewart has been awarded similar accolades by the Boston Online Film Critics Association, Boston Society of Film Critics, and the Florida Film Critics Circle. Stewart was also named runner-up by several other organizations, such as the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards, and there’s still a few more pending.
It also remains to be seen whether she’ll score a coveted Academy Awards nomination when the Oscar nominees are announced this Thursday. These individual honors may work in Stewart’s favor, but it’s also worth noting that she was not given a Golden Globes, SAG, or Critics’ Choice nomination last month. Gossip Cop will have a full list of the Oscar nominations on Thursday morning.
