Emma Watson Named Feminist Celebrity of the Year 2014—Find Out Who Else Made the List!

19 December 2014 11:23 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Emma Watson continues to make Hermione—and the rest of us—so, so proud. This time, the 24-year-old actress has been voted the top feminist of 2014 in a Ms. Foundation for Women online poll, conducted in partnership with Cosmopolitan.com. The win came, in part, thanks to the emotional, powerful speech Emma gave back in September at the U.N., when she helped launch the HeForShe gender equality campaign. "For the record, feminism, by definition, is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities," she said in her speech. "It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes." Video: Watch Emma Watson's powerful speech on »

Game of Thrones Star Maisie Williams Criticizes Emma Watson's 'First-World Feminism'

16 December 2014 10:45 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Emma Watson's speech about feminism and gender equality made waves back in September when she announced the launch of the HeForShe campaign in a United Nations address. The campaign aims to "galvanize as many men and boys as possible to be advocates for gender equality," Watson said at the time, and to correct the misconceptions surrounding modern feminism. However, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams was not particularly impressed by Watson's speech. "A lot of what Emma Watson spoke about, I just think, 'That doesn't bother me,' " Williams, 17, told The Guardian. "I know things aren't perfect for women in the U. »

'Game of Thrones' Star Maisie Williams Criticizes Emma Watson's 'First World Feminism'

16 December 2014 9:24 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Not everyone is supporting Emma Watson's HeForShe campaign.

Though the 24-year-old Harry Potter star's speech at the United Nations in September had plenty of stars like Taylor Swift and Harry Styles supporting her cause for gender equality, one actress not impressed is Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams.

"A lot of what Emma Watson spoke about, I just think, 'that doesn't bother me,'" the outspoken 17-year-old tells the Guardian in a new interview. "I know things aren’t perfect for women in the UK and in America, but there are women in the rest of the world who have it far worse."

Calling out what she believes is "first-world feminism," she adds, "There are creepy things that people say online that I shouldn't have to read, but there are bigger things going on in other countries.”

Emma Watson was widely praised for her courageous speech on feminism at the United Nations in September, but “Game of Thrones” actress Maisie Williams had a few problems with it in a new interview.

Game on. Emma Watson got a lot of buzz for her speech on gender equality at the United Nations on Sept. 20, but at least one fellow female star wasn't all that impressed. Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams told The Guardian recently that she thought Watson's remarks took kind of a narrow view on feminism.

7 Times Celebrities Inspired Us In 2014

15 December 2014 12:30 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The influence of star-power can never be underestimated. While celebrities inspire us every day, these seven celebrities moved us in unexpected ways over this past year.

1. Emma Watson

Earlier this year, the Harry Potter star spoke at the United Nations and gave a passionate speech about gender equality. She used to platform to launch the HeForShe campaign, an initiative to get men to join the fight against gender inequality and to combat the negative connotation of the word "feminism."

"The more I have spoken about feminism, the more I have realized that fighting for women's rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating," she said. "If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop. For the record, feminism by definition is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes."

13 December 2014 4:18 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Living well is the best revenge! And that's exactly what Emma Watson appears to be doing after breaking up with longtime boyfriend Matthew Janney. Instead of wallowing in her house, the Harry Potter alumna decided to carry on with business as she continued filming her upcoming movie Colonia Dignidad. Wearing a form-fitting mini dress with ballet flats, Watson looked in the zone while shooting scenes with her co-star Daniel Bruhl. The brave face comes just one day after E! News confirmed her nearly year-long romance to Janney was over. After first being linked to the Oxford University Student in January, the actress kept her relationship on the down-low.

Emma Watson and Matthew Janney Have Split

12 December 2014 10:50 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Emma Watson is single again. The actress and her boyfriend, Oxford University student and rugby player Matthew Janney, reportedly split last month. Emma's rep confirmed the news this week, saying the split was "amicable" and that the two have remained friends. Emma and Matthew were first spotted together back in January, during a Pda-filled beach vacation in the Caribbean. They kept their romance rather private, though we did catch glimpses of them together in Spain and around NYC. Despite the recent breakup, Emma is having a pretty good year. She shot the thriller Regression with Ethan Hawke and is currently filming a political drama, Colonia Dignidad, with Daniel Brühl and Julian Ovenden in Argentina. She graduated from Brown University in May and was named a Un Women Goodwill Ambassador; she delivered a powerful speech in September to launch the #HeForShe gender equality campaign.

Emma Watson and Matthew Janney Break Up

12 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's over! E! News has confirmed that Emma Watson and Matthew Janney have broken up. The Harry Potter star, 24, and the Oxford University student, 22, were first linked in January after they were seen packing on the Pda in the Caribbean. The private pair were seen rarely after that, though Janney did accompany his then-girlfriend on press trips in Spain and the United States. Things seemed to be going well heading into the fall, as photographers snapped Watson and Janney moving boxes out of the actress' apartment. It was not confirmed at the time if they had moved in together, but that didn't put a stop to speculation. Per the U.K.'s Daily Mail, the exes broke up in an "amicable" fashion and »

Lana Del Rey, Lorde Pick Up First-Time Golden Globe Nominations

11 December 2014 7:56 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Best Original Song category at the 2015 Golden Globes is stacked with plenty of familiar faces.

The 72nd annual Golden Globes nominations were announced Thursday, notably marking first-time nominations for singers Lana Del Rey and Lorde.

Del Rey is nominated for her song "Big Eyes" from the Tim Burton film of the same title, which stars Amy Adams as painter Margaret Keane. The movie explores the difficulties Keane had with her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz), who claimed credit for her works in the 1960s.

The moody tune is sweeping and more than a little melancholy, everything one would expect from a Del Rey track.

The nomination for "Big Eyes" was a bit of a surprise given that her "Young and Beautiful," which was featured prominently in Baz Luhrmann's 2013 take on The Great Gatsby, was not nominated last year.

2 December 2014 10:13 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

After a few famous romances, Harry Styles is currently single and ready to mingle.

But if the Internet gets its way, his next girlfriend should be none other than Harry Potter star Emma Watson.

The One Direction singer made an appearance at the British Fashion Awards in London on Monday to present Emma with the British Style Award, and just the image of the two photogenic stars together was pretty much more than the Internet could take.

And it's not hard to see why.

Rocking a backless white Misha Nonoo jumpsuit, Emma was stunning next to a handsome Harry in an unconventional red-and-black pinstripe suit.

Not surprisingly, plenty of people agree that these two British stars would make the perfect couple.

I don't normally ship humans but Emma Watson and Harry Styles together would be what dreams are made of.

Editor's Note: I asked Team Experience to tell us what they're thankful for this year during the holiday weekend. Here's Jose in the cinematic spirit.

Jose here. This year I’m thankful...

For Hardy with puppies. And Godard with Roxy.

For Keira, Kristen and Kirsten.

For snakes made out of clouds.  

For cruising in French lakes (even with killers on the loose)

For movies about toys that didn’t treat me like a kid.

For Marion x 2. For Joaquin Phoenix x 2. For Chastain x 4 (she doesn't make it seem like bragging either!) 

For Dan Stevens’ abs and killer acting chops (pun intended).

For Shia in the buff.

For Carrie Coon and Jenny Slate (can they play sisters some day?).

For Swedish films about skiing that reminded me how much I love Mike Nichols.

For Broadway actors in movies (I'm looking at you Jefferson Mays in Inherent Vice).

For Edward Norton's tan. »
