Star Wars Daisy Ridley Jj Abrams Alicia Vikander

Just when you thought film awards season was over, the 2016 Jameson Empire Awards rolled in last night (March 20th 2016) to heap some much deserved praise on the epic of the year 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'; a film which didn't manage to land an Oscar and wasn't even recognised at the Golden Globes in spite of its enormous appeal.

Daisy Ridley Brings Out Her Inner Rey To Blast Body-Shamers


Daisy Ridley

In a world where people are trying to break down beauty stereotypes and body-shaming, seeing a celebrity get criticized because of their slender frame seems rather pathetic. As much as women and girls are being encouraged to love themselves no matter what they weigh, some people like Daisy Ridley are scorned simply because they happen to have model-esque figures.

Daisy RidleyDaisy Ridley gives inspiring speech against body-shamers

Most people are praising the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' star for embodying such a powerful female figure on screen, but one person used that image of Rey to take aim at her body in a scathing Instagram post. The image featured a speech bubble above Rey's head reading: 'I can't believe the unrealistic expectations I'm setting for young girls. Who cast me anyway? Don't they know real women have curves?'

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Leads MTV Movie Awards Nominations


Mtv Movie Awards Star Wars Daisy Ridley John Boyega

Star Wars: The Force Awakens received the most nominations for this year’s Mtv Movie Awards, after being selected in a total of 11 categories ahead of next month’s ceremony in Los Angeles.

Having been snubbed in all five of its categories at the Oscars recently, with no recognition in any of the acting categories or for Best Picture, the slightly more irreverent and pop culture-oriented MTV Movie Awards may see the record-breaking film get better luck.
