EXCLUSIVE: Coming off the Zach Braff-directed Sundance premiere Wish I Was Here, The Twilight Saga alum Ashley Greene has been set to play Priscilla Presley in Shangra-La Suite, the Eddie OKeefe-directed drama which stars Boardwalk Empire‘s Ron Livingston …
The last night at the 2012 Young Hollywood Awards Presented by Bing (and produced by Deadline’s parent company PMC). Held at the very decked-out Hollywood Athletic Club, the 14th annual show celebrated significant rising talent from movies, television, music, and beyond — and all very much on the up-escalator of their careers.
Twilight star Ashley Greene, 25, and Alex Pettyfer, 22, of the
upcoming Magic Mike took home the biggest prizes of the night –
Superstars of Tomorrow — and Nickelodeon mainstay Miranda Cosgrove,
19, won Crossover of the Year for her recent foray into music. (Greene
also hosted the event.)
That trio felt altogether veteran next to 12-year-old Kiernan Shipka,
who plays the scarily mature Sally Draper on Mad Men, and Modern
Family’s charmingly daffy Rico Rodriguez and Nolan Gould, both 13, who
won the Scene Stealers awards.
The Male Breakthrough of the Year went to Asa Butterfield, the
15-year-old star of Hugo, who, as tradition holds, got his award from
last year’s winner (and Oscar nominee for True Grit), Hailee
Steinfeld. Perhaps the line of the night came from Aubrey Plaza of
NBC’s Parks and Recreation, who, accepting her award for Female
Breakthrough of the Year, declared that she was “never going to die.”
We think she was serious.
