For the last couple weeks, The Hollywood Gossip has looked back at 2009 by naming the finalists for our prestigious, 3rd Annual Celebrity of the Year award.
In this section, we’ve been paying tribute to the unique stars that made the past 12 months so memorable for gossip followers across the nation and globe.
Now, following last edition’s selection of Miley Cyrus in the #2 spot, we’ve finally reached the top. Drumroll please…
For 2009, THG’s Celebrity of the Year is… the New Moon cast!
Critics might say we’re copping out by choosing more than one star for this honor, but come on. Everyone involved with the Twilight Saga deserves recognition for turning a book series into the most popular, buzzed-about film franchise in years.
So, what enabled New Moon to gross over $660 million worldwide? A cast of young, fresh, gorgeous, talented and seemingly grounded individuals. Below, we note each actor’s 2009 accomplishments:
Robert Pattinson: Might as well start at the top. The British actor has grown into a global phenomenon. He can’t walk away from a film set without being followed by countless paparazzi members, his every interaction with women is chronicled like it’s a Presidential summit and he was named one of People’s 50 Most Beautiful People of 2009.
Over the course of a few months, Pattinson covered Entertainment Weekly, Harper’s Bazaar, OK! Weekly, Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone.
