Anna Kendrick Nominated For Golden Globe

Anna Kendrick has been nominated for a Golden Globe! She’s in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in Up In the Air.

CONGRATULATIONS ANNA! =)

On Tuesday (December 15), it was announced that Anna Kendrick was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for her work in the George Clooney movie “Up in the Air.” Even before starring in that movie (which received the most Globe nominations this year) or playing chatterbox Jessica in the “Twilight” franchise, the 26-year-old actress has been receiving accolades for her work.

A musical-theater veteran, Kendrick has been nominated for a number of awards including a Tony nod in 1998 for her work in “High Society,” in which she played Dinah. At the time, she was the third-youngest person ever to get nominated for a Tony.

In addition to a number of stage productions, the actress appeared on TV shows like the short-lived “Viva Laughlin,” produced by Hugh Jackman, and smaller flicks like 2007’s “Rocket Science,” which is what caught the eye of “Up in the Air” director Jason Reitman.

“When I saw her in that movie, I just thought, ‘This girl has a different voice from everyone of her generation,’ ” Reitman said. “She oddly talks like someone from the 1940s, and she’s so witty and smart and sharp. And I needed a girl who could go toe-to-toe with George Clooney. She was the one. This was Anna’s role. I wrote this for Anna. As soon as I saw ‘Rocket Science’ and I recognized her voice, I started writing for her.”
