Sixty-four celebs, five weeks of voting, four fiercely contested brackets and a surprising wild card round later, Robert Pattinson comes out on top.
Team Jacob and Twilight haters can get to steppin' because the evidence is crystal clear: You guys love R.Pattz. And what's even better? Pattinson's competitor for the final round of 2011's tournament was his "sexy goddess" Kristen Stewart. Again.
Here's how it went down:
More than a month ago, we introduced the 64 big-name contenders—Kate Middleton, Charlie Sheen, Justin Bieber and Britney Spears, to name a few—who all had a lot going on this year. (For the record, the new Duchess of Cambridge came super close to grabbing this title.)
So what made Rob stand out above all the pop stars, royals, Oscar winners and warlocks who dominated 2011?
Was it all about the jaw-dropping Breaking Dawn: Part 1, the sparkly vamp's latest blockbuster, which hit theaters last month and is still making bank?
Or was it his bold steps to more challenging roles like Cosmopolis?
Or maybe it was that mind-of-its-own hair?
Or was it just the smooch?
Whatever the case may be, we clearly can't escape the power of Pattinson. Congrats, Rob!
The question remains: What charity will he choose to have E! donate the $25,000 prize? We'll keep you posted.
