Kristen Stewart has been acting for most of her life and is best known for “The Twilight Saga.” Since that blockbuster franchise concluded in 2012 she’s been taking on challenging characters in films with acclaimed directors and co-stars. While she has yet to receive an Oscar nomination, that career milestone could be right around the corner. Before you head to the theater on March 10 to see her latest film, “Personal Shopper,” please click above to view Stewart’s top 10 films to date.
Stewart’s first big break came in David Fincher’s 2002 hit “Panic Room” opposite two-time Oscar champ Jodie Foster as her mother. She was only 11 when that film was released, but she held her own, not only with Foster but also with two future Academy Award winners, Forest Whitaker and Jared Leto.
The “Twilight” saga didn’t earn the same critical praise as much of her other work — every installment except the original was nominated for several Razzie Awards — but it’s important to remember that it laid the groundwork for the “Hunger Games” series and other female-driven YA franchises that have followed. In 2010, during the run of those films, Stewart won the BAFTA Award for Rising Star, an award voted on by the British public that rarely goes to Americans.
Then there was her role as a personal assistant in “Clouds of Sils Maria” (2014) opposite Juliette Binoche, which was Stewart’s most acclaimed performance to date. Stewart made history by winning Best Supporting Actress at the César Awards (the French equivalent to the Oscars) as the first American ever to be so honored. Stewart also won Best Supporting Actress from the National Society of Film Critics, New York Film Critics Circle, Boston Society of Film Critics and she was the runner-up for the L.A. Critics Award.
