Variety recently put out its 2012 Women’s Impact List, its annual opportunity to highlight the women who continue to influence Hollywood and the world. Variety describes the ladies on the list as “a snapshot of some of the amazing women working in the entertainment industry today.” Kristen is included in “The Kickin-A list” for her role as ‘Snow White’ in Universal’s ‘Snow White and the Huntsman.’
Variety describes the honorees:
Our list is merely a snapshot of some of the amazing women working in the entertainment industry today, we aimed to include femmes from different disciplines and while there were dozens more more we could have included, we chose to focus this year on those who influenced the industry by thinking outside of the box. The question we asked for every honoree was, “was this person just doing their job?” or “did she do something extraordinary outside of her normal responsibilities?”
Kristen is honored in The Kickin-A List. Variety explains,
Amid all the testosterone-heavy tentpoles and hit pay TV action series this year, it was the female characters that really delivered the knockout punches. From the heroines of summer blockbusters to the folks that made the smallscreen sizzle, women held their own in fare that might have originally been targeted for men, but were enjoyed by all.
Variety highlights Kristen’s performance in SWATH, explaining “Stewart made the character her own with a steely version of the apple-loving beauty” and that her standout scene is her post-resurrection surge of Queen Ravenna’s castle.
Kristen’s co-star, Charlize Theron also made the Kickin-A list for her portrayal of The Evil Queen.
