Anna Kendrick: Oscar Reaction!

Anna Kendrick: Oscar Reaction!

Anna Kendrick was almost rendered speechless on Tuesday morning (February 2) when she found out she had been nominated for an Oscar.

The 24-year-old actress, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress, issued in a statement, “I am thrilled beyond words to be nominated with these talented and inspiring women. Being involved in a film as special as Up in the Air was a dream come true. I am overwhelmed and honored by this nomination and am so grateful to be able to share this experience with George [Clooney], Vera [Farmiga] and [director] Jason [Reitman].”

JJJ loves the fact that when previously polled at MTV, Anna only scored 1% in a poll which asked readers who of the Twilight cast was most likely to be nominated for an Oscar first. Robert Pattinson was chosen as the winner.

Anna even shared a celebratory drink and dinner with a few pals at the RH restaurant at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood.

Congrats, Anna — we’re rooting for you!

    Anna’s brilliant, man..
    She’s really going places.
    I’m excited about her upcoming projects as well, like the movie she’s going to star in with James McAvoy.
    Ugh, I’m so jealous of her.. But I still love her, she’s the best.
    Talented and charismatic, what a movie star should be.

    I haven’t seen Up in the Air, but I’ve heard good things about it. She must be really talented if she was nominated for an Oscar. I only wish she used some of that talent in the Twilight movies. Her acting is terrible in those.

    Congrats to Anna! i love twilight to death, but honestly the minor characters (all of bellas friends) act 1000 times better than r. patz, k. stew, or taylor ever could. glad shes getting some recognition, she deserves it

  • me.

    hah! that shows how the main characters aren’t that talented after all. i mean, i love rob. but he’s still got a long shot in winning an oscar.

    congrats anna! out of all the twilight cast, i’m glad it’s you. (and not kstew/dakota fanning – hate that girl).

    @Anonymous: agreed haha

    I watched Up in the Air a few days ago and her nomination is so deserved. In my opinion she is probably the most talented actresses out of all those Twilight chicks. She has actual versatility in her acting unlike some.

  • leeloo
