Emma Watson Dedicates Award To Dead Hamster
Former Harry Potter star remembers rodent in acceptance speech...
Parents, spouses, children, colleagues, God... the list of people thanked in most acting award acceptance speeches is quite predictable if we're honest.
The awards - a Los Angeles-based spin-off from the Baftas - were held in Tinseltown the other night and saw Em-Wat collect a gong for British Artist Of The Year - with Robert Downey Jr, Dame Judi Dench, Mark Ruffalo and Julia Louis-Dreyfus among the other winners.
And in her acceptance speech she told of the unfortunate rodent, which died from a heart attack while Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone was being shot.
The film crew created a tiny mahogany coffin with velvet lining and an engraved plaque for the furry creature.
Watson said: "What I'm trying to say is that you're all very special to me and that your vote of confidence means a lot.
"I take it as such a great honour that you're giving me this award tonight. Thank you very, very much and rest in peace Millie, this one's for you."
