Stunning Emma Watson wows film fans

martes, 9 de septiembre de 2008 |

Harry Potter starlet Emma Watson wowed fans at the second National Movie Awards last night as she stopped to chat and sign autographs.

The 18-year-old thrilled the crowd in a stunning white, Victorian-style, Alexander McQueen gown with a jewel encrusted bust.

And the rising star, who won an award for Best Female Performance at last year's awards, appeared pleased to talk to fans and have her photograph taken before heading inside at the Royal Festival Hall in London.

Award nominee Meryl Streep and Kylie Minogue however snubbed the red carpet at last night's Awards.

A crowd of teenagers wearing t-shirts with slogans such as ‘Meryl is my Momma’ and clutching flowers for their heroine were left disappointed as the Mamma Mia! star failed to appear.

Instead she and pop princess Kylie were sneaked in another door at the Royal Festival Hall.

All four male nominees – Pierce Brosnan, Will Smith, Johnny Depp and Christian Bale – failed to appear at the ceremony.

And the leads from Sex and the City nominated in the best comedy category were also absent, sending Chris Noth – aka Mr Big – in their place.

“I have no idea why they’re not here,” said Noth. “They’re probably all busy, I had a window and I love London so I wanted to come.”

Stars who did make the carpet included Jason Statham, Eddie Izzard and the child stars of Prince Caspian, the latest Narnia film.

Nicole Kidman stepped out for the first time since becoming a mum - and met ABBA's Bjorn Ulvaeus, 63. The Aussie beauty, 41, gave birth to Sunday Rose in July.

Olympic gold medallist Chris Hoy raced down the red carpet in a kilt and Samuel L Jackson was sporting his trademark cap as he arrived.

Emma Watson said she was looking forward to presenting an award.

“It was such fun to be here last year,” she said. “And I won an award which made it extra special.”

Eddie Izzard, at the event to present the best comedy award, said he has enjoyed working with Tom Cruise on their new film Valkyrie.

“It was scary because on my first day I had a six page scene to shoot with him. But he was very polite and very Tom Cruiseish.”
