Insiders say Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart own their craft.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have floated almost completely under-radar in the last few months, minus a few low-profile outings in L.A. just recently. But insiders on the sets of their latest films are revealing that we might see the biggest Robsten explosion yet, when Oscar season rolls around...
While the feature film series "The Twilight Saga" hasn't seen a whole lot of awards action among the Hollywood elitist crowd, word has it that the projects Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have coming up individually could see them both in their best form.
We've told you that Kristen Stewart's performance in "Meet the Rileys" is already hocking critical acclaim, and Pattinson's performance in "Water for Elephants" is expected to move audiences like we've never seen before. But get this: insiders close to both films are adding that Pattinson and Stewart are going to get some Oscar-worthy nods in the coming months -- a source on the set of "Water for Elephants" said this to Hollywood Life: "It wouldn't surprise me at all if he were to receive an Oscar nod for this role."
Supporting Actor Oscar winner for "Inglourious Basterds" Christopher Waltz is Pattinson's "Water for Elephants" co-star...and he too is buzzing over Pattinson's chops! Waltz said that his Oscar statue is "in my house, but the way things are looking, I might have to hand it off to Rob next year!"
Wow! As for Kristen Stewart's talents alongside James Gandolfini and Oscar nominee Melissa Leo in "Meet the Rileys," her relative one-dimensionality is said to be expanding. Both Kristen and the movie have received major praise from critics at some of entertainment's biggest publications, and Kristen recently revealed to Jay Leno how she relates to her characters. "It's always different," Stewart said. "If you're playing a fictional character they should be real in your head."
