Kristen Stewart is no stranger to award shows The 25 year old has received countless nods for her role as Bella Swan in the blockbuster Twilight saga, but her latest win for Best Supporting Actress came from a bit more mature audience, the New York Film Critics Circle, for her performance in Clouds of Sils Maria.

“I’ve received a lot of MTV Popcorns,” Stewart joked about her MTV Movie Awards, “But this is a little different,” she said during her sincere yet concise minute long NYFCC acceptance speech, an award ceremony held at New York’s swanky restaurant, Tao Downtown.

This award was her third for Clouds of Sils Maria.

Last February Stewart became the very first American actress to win a French Oscar taking home the prestigious César award for Best Supporting Actress in the film.

She looked back on that moment and joked about how costar Juliette Binoche wasn’t very confident in her win.

“Juliette Binoche was like ‘There is no way! You will never (win the award)’ she recalls, “I’ll remember the way she said that to me for the rest of my life! It was so funny, and she really convinced me too.”

Binoche, 51, got to her head and Stewart soon thought “OK, cool, then we can just hang out at the Césars.

Lucky for Stewart, Binoche was wrong.

Stewart’s third win for Clouds of Sils Maria came from the National Society of Film Critics, again for Best Supporting Actress.
