This is a list of the best Emma Watson movies, ranked best to worst - with movie trailers when available. Emma Watson blasted onto the film scene with her powerful performance as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series and she has went on to become one of Hollywood's fastest rising stars. Beyond starring in the Harry Potter franchise, Emma Watson's growing filmography includes The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring, Noah, and My Week with Marilyn.  The order of these top Emma Watson movies is not about which movie was highest grossing, but rather, it's decided by how many votes they receive, so only highly rated Emma Watson movies will be at the top of the list.

This list answers the questions, "What are the best Emma Watson movies?," "What are the greatest Emma Watson roles of all time?," and "Are Emma Watson's latest movies as good as her early ones?" If you think the best Emma Watson role isn't at the top, then upvote it so it has the chance to become number one. The greatest Emma Watson performances didn't necessarily come from the best movies, but in most cases they go hand in hand.

If you a fan of Watson's wizardly ways, you might also enjoy our list of best Daniel Radcliffe movies and best Alan Rickman movies.

If Emma Watson movies are your thing, then check out the greatest movies by Anna Paquin and Daniel Radcliffe too.
