If Hollywood were high school, Robert Pattinson would be …

robert-pattinsonHollywood is all about popularity, just like that other institution — high school. So, in the spirit of all things popular, movie ticket website Fandango.com has released its “Celebrity Yearbook Awards,” based on votes from fans about which stars they think are the most likely to succeed, and which ones already made their mark one way or another.

“Twilight” star Robert Pattinson and “Grey Gardens” actress Drew Barrymore were named “most popular” in the survey of about 1,000 movie fans.

Another actor from “Twilight,” rising star Taylor Lautner, was named “most likely to succeed,” along with Ellen Page from the 2007 film “Juno.”

But Page’s “Juno” co-star Michael Cera fared much worse, being named “most awkward.” As it happens, not all the “Twilight” stars came out on top, because the movie’s female lead, Kristen Stewart, was also named “most awkward.”

After being largely absent from film screens for the last couple renee-zellwegeryears, Sandra Bullock made good this summer in romantic comedy “The Proposal,” which has made $235 million at worldwide box offices. Poll respondents  named her “best personality,” along with perennial Hollywood leading man George Clooney.

And of course, that key high school concern, namely how you look, was highlighted in the “worst hair” category of the poll, with Nicolas Cage and Renee Zellweger winning the honors.

If nothing else, the poll proves it’s good to be out of high school.
