She has received various accolades, including a Young Artist Award, an MTV Movie & TV Award and a ShoWest Award.

Emma Roberts abuse charges and assault allegations
Roberts was arrested and released without charge earlier this month after a domestic violence incident in Montreal, Canada.
The incident involved her boyfriend, Evan Peters, a star of American Horror Story, who had a bloody nose and a bite mark on his body.
Roberts was taken into custody but was released hours later as Evan declined to press charges.
However, rumors circulated that Roberts had bitten Evan, and some sources claimed that she was the only one arrested because he had more obvious physical injuries.
Her spokesperson released a statement saying that both parties were to blame for the violent incident and that they were both hitting each other.
Roberts’ previous domestic abuse charge in 2013 after fighting with Evan has also resurfaced.
Recently, Roberts has also been accused of passing transphobic remarks at Angelica Ross.
Fans linked this issue with the previous behavior of Roberts where she came out unscathed, particularly an alleged incident with her then-boyfriend Evan.
Ross told her fans not to “joke about violence towards Roberts” but instead joke about her being held accountable in a tweet just a few hours ago.
