Rob is E! Celeb of the Year


Sixty-four celebs, five weeks of voting, four fiercely contested brackets and a surprising wild card round later, Robert Pattinson comes out on top.

The great-haired hunk has won the E! Celeb of the Year honor—for the second year in a row!


Team Jacob and Twilight haters can get to steppin' because the evidence is crystal clear: You guys love R.Pattz. And what's even better? Pattinson's competitor for the final round of 2011's tournament was his "sexy goddess" Kristen Stewart. Again.

Here's how it went down:
More than a month ago, we introduced the 64 big-name contenders—Kate Middleton, Charlie Sheen, Justin Bieber and Britney Spears, to name a few—who all had a lot going on this year. (For the record, the new Duchess of Cambridge came super close to grabbing this title.)

So what made Rob stand out above all the pop stars, royals, Oscar winners and warlocks who dominated 2011?

Was it all about the jaw-dropping Breaking Dawn: Part 1, the sparkly vamp's latest blockbuster, which hit theaters last month and is still making bank?

Or was it his bold steps to more challenging roles like Cosmopolis?

Or maybe it was that mind-of-its-own hair or his?

Or was it just the smooch?

Whatever the case may be, we clearly can't escape the power of Pattinson. Congrats, Rob!

The question remains: What charity will he choose to have E! donate the $25,000 prize? We'll keep you posted.

I am so happy for him. I did vote in a couple of brackets and always selected him. What was surprising is how much he beat Johnny Depp by, generally it is close or Johnny wins. I hope next year will show Rob's talent with Bel Ami and Cosmopolis and show those haters that he is a very capable actor not just a one-trick pony. Thanks Mandy for posting.

No, that was WFE what made it, not his hair and not that not-jaw-droppng BD ( though it was better, than I waited...).

I guess congratulations are in order to Robert Pattinson. It just shows you that the women fandom is powerful. BUT, but... realistically? Johnny Depp or Kristen Stewart should have won. She was excellent in The Runaways. Rob doesn't have the depth and calibre of Johnny as yet, but he will be seasoned soon enough. I wish him a great future ahead. Cheers.

If we are going to be real, Kristen still isn't a great actress and I found Water for Elephants a lot more entertaining than BD and The Runaways (which came out last year). Also, I haven't found any of Johnny Depp's latest films all that great, so I'll stand by my vote for Robert. Congratulations, Rob.

this was a popularity contest and Rob deserves this!! i'm happy that it comes along with the charity contribution. I love kristen, but she got this far because of the twilight fans, not because of the runaways. and johnny...pirates. ummm, and....yeah, that's about all he's got. We rob fans are in a bubble...we don't know just how popular he is. paps would stampede over johnny to get a pic of rob. he beat beiber for god's sake! now that's impressive!!
