Emma Watson's Sweet BAFTA Award Dedication to Her Hamster Will Make You Love Her More - VIDEO
It's pretty common for an actor to dedicate their awards to someone: a family member, spouse, even their fans. But taking things an adorable step further, Emma Watson decided to sweetly dedicate her BAFTA award to her late hamster Millie. The actress and feminist advocate took home the title of British Artist of the Year and made a very touching speech about her hamster, and what she represented to the young actress.
Watson opened up about how the honor meant a lot to her because she considers the British film community the place where she grew up and a "surrogate family. She then went on to give an example of how that family helped her heal during a particularly tragic time.
On the first Harry Potter film, my on-set hamster Millie had a heart attack and didn't quite make it. So the set decorators built a small mahogany hamster-sized coffin, and it had a velvet lining and a silver plaque on front which had Millie's named engraved in it.
Seriously, that is adorable.
Watson then thanked the award givers for their vote of confidence and told the industry members that "they're all very special" to her before concluding her speech with a shout out to Millie.
"Rest in peace, Millie. This one's for you," she said, holding her award high in the air.
