The recognition had Stewart looking very happy as she posed for photographers in a two-piece, lacy black ensemble.
Stewart’s Still Alice co-star, Julianne Moore, introduced the 25-year-old actress, who accepted the award in typical abbreviated fashion.
Kristen kept her speech short and sweet, poking gentle fun at her past recognition for the Twilight franchise, commenting, “I’ve received a lot of MTV Popcorns and stuff like that. This is a little different.”
The event was held at TAO Downton in New York City.
