True Grit's leading lady, Hailee Steinfeld, may be a rising star in Hollywood, but she admits at home she's still just a regular 14-year-old who sometimes gets scolded by her parents.
"I'm a normal girl. I get in trouble for texting too much and using the computer too late – all kinds of stuff like that," Steinfeld told PEOPLE at the 16th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards, where she collected her first high-profile acting trophy as best young actress.
"I'm not getting used to it at all," she says of her new stint as an awards show standout. "This is so new to me. This is the beginning of it all and this is really exciting for me. I'm really honored to be a part of it."

The Fighter star Christian Bale has no problem playing the tough guy in many of his films. But when the cameras aren't rolling, the actor has a soft side.
Bale, 36, held back tears while talking about Sibi Blazic, his wife of more than a decade, backstage at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards, where he won best supporting actor for his role in the boxing film, which also stars Mark Wahlberg.
"I get choked up about that stuff," Bale told reporters Friday. "It's everything because I truly believe you can't celebrate [success] without having your partner with you."

While some actors are focused on winning this awards season, the pressure to take home a statuette doesn't faze Mila Kunis.
"They're just awards. It's not the end of the world. People need to relax," the actress told PEOPLE with a laugh at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards in Hollywood on Friday.
Kunis, who was nominated for her supporting role in Black Swan, takes a similarly relaxed approach to dressing for the red carpet.

One down and one to go!
A weekend of awards shows kicked off with the 16th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards at the Hollywood Palladium Friday night – and Natalie Portman and Colin Firth went home winners.
The stars of Black Swan and The King's Speech, respectively, both picked up best acting awards but their films lost out in the best picture category to the film about Facebook, The Social Network.
Christian Bale was named best supporting actor for his role in The Fighter and his costar in that pugilistic picture, Melissa Leo, was named best supporting actress.
