Last night some of the UK's bravest yet lesser-known heroes were honored at the Pride of Britain awards. The winners are chosen by judges that include Simon Cowell, and the inspiring citizens range from children to firefighters to racecar drivers. Emma Watson was looking adorable as always to show the love for JK Rowling, who received a special recognition award for her philanthropic efforts in addition to bringing us Harry Potter. We love seeing our favorite celebrities get recognition, but it's even nicer to see the appreciation for acts of bravery coming from every day heroes.
