Emma Watson‘s come a long way since Harry Potter, and now she’s being honored for her achievements in acting.

The British actress will receive MTV’s second annual Trailblazer Award – which honors the best young actors who are creating their own unique careers in the film industry – during the 2013 MTV Movie Awards on April 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Watson, 22, is also nominated for three other MTV Movie Awards for her role in The Perks of Being a Wallflower: best female performance, best kiss and best musical moment.

“Emma Watson endeared herself to fans as one of the most beloved and iconic characters of her generation,” Stephen Friedman, President of MTV, said in a statement. “She’s been a constant presence in the lives of our audience for more than a decade and is continuing to challenge her craft with upcoming roles as radically diverse as her enormous talent.

Watson doesn’t show any signs of slowing down, either – next on her plate is Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring, followed by Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, in which she’ll costar with Russell Crowe.

Whether a coincidence or not, actresses named Emma seem to have a lock on the MTV award – last year, Emma Stone took home the first-ever Trailblazer Award.
