Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart: Fierce New Battle!

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart: Fierce New Battle

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have been fighting to keep their relationship alive ever since her infamous affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders this summer. After the public slap across the face, Rob went off the radar, surfacing only in his grimy baseball caps. E! Online hosts an annual celebrity award, naming the best actors of the year.

The voter set up is kind of like fantasy basketball (can you tell I don’t play this?) where two people are paired and the winners continue until only one remains. At time of publishing, Kristen Stewart was 3% ahead of Lady Gaga, and Robert Pattinson was 9% ahead of Lana Del Ray—who must have bribed someone to put her in the running!

The winners of those matches will go on to the last round, and will compete against the winner of Selena Gomez and Britney Spears (Selena has a 7% lead) or the winner between Kate Middleton and Ian Somerhalder (Ian is 4% ahead, probably those eyes . . . ). It doesn’t look like Lady Gaga or Lana Del Ray have a chance of winning, as Hope Carson at Gather makes clear, which means there will be some super awkward tension in the Robsten bedroom later this week!

You can vote your favorite by going to the E! website, but I have to say, if Kristen wins celebrity of the year, I may break a few fingers after punching a wall! Who do you think is the worthy celeb? Do either Rob or Kristen deserve the honor? Can Rob’s end of the relationship survive another public shaming? Will Rob get the female vote and leave Kristen in the dust? Let us know who you’re supporting!
