Anna was the guest of honor at the TCM Film Festival’s Screening of “The Women” on April 12th at the El Capitan theater in L.A. Anna has always proclaimed “The Women” as her all-time fave filming and humorously explains how she got into it when she was a kid.

Anna Begins Filming ‘Cake’

Anna is one busy girl – after a week at SNL in NYC, Anna is back in L.A. straight to her brand new film Cake, which stars and is produced by Jennifer Aniston. Anna plays Nina, a woman who (spoiler alert!) commits suicide. Anna looked totes adorbs on her first day of shooting, stopping by the craft services table for a healthy brunch.

Anna Hosts Saturday Night Live

Anna rocked Saturday Night Live last night (April 5th), hosting for her first time ever at the famed Rockefeller center in NYC. From her epic Beauty and the Beast sing-a-long monologue, Southern Obamacare sufferette, Ariel the Little Mermaid singing Kesha, Nasty Girl singing about dongs, and Eurotrash French waitress singing, dancing, and “cupping,” Anna totally proved how talented and–bare with me–Versatile she is.

If you are an international fan and can’t view the video, here is a list of download links.

When I started this site back in ’07, I always knew Anna was super talented and funny; I knew she’d make a great SNL host some day but still can’t believe that day is here and am so glad someone gave her this chance!

Watch Anna Kendrick Steal Every Single ‘Saturday Night Live’ Scene

The actress was pitch perfect from start to finish in her first turn as host in Studio 8H.

Pharrell Williams may have been the musical guest in this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” episode, but host Anna Kendrick stole the spotlight, carrying a ditty during her opening monologue and then keeping the tunes coming through sketches that included ’90s raps and childhood favorite Disney songs.

She Really Is A Funny Girl
Kendrick opened the evening so excited to host she could only truly express her feelings through song. Expanding on her musical-theatre background, the “Pitch Perfect” star launched into her own version of the classic “Little Town” from “Beauty and the Beast.” Other “SNL” castmates chimed in as she ran through a tour of the set, stopping for hair and makeup touch-ups and disturbing a distracted Lorne Michaels before the entire cast gathered onstage to belt out the final introductory notes of a what she called a “magical exciting show.”

The Dong Song
Veering from kid-approved tunes, Kendrick appeared as a hot pink fishnet-wearing ’90s vixen in a crew of other “SNL” women on an international mission. “Dongs All Over the World” put Ludacris’ hoes in different “Area Codes” to shame, as the ladies sang about their plan to do every dong in the world, from the pyramids of Giza to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Kendrick showed off her rapping skills while Icona Pop made a cameo onboard the airplane, dressed as the pilots steering the sexual conquest.

Part Of The ‘SNL’ World
Kendrick went under the sea for this sketch, wearing a long red wig and mermaid fins as Ariel in “The Little Mermaid.” Aidy Bryant was a convincing Ursula, who wanted to steal Ariel’s voice, but she didn’t exactly get what she was hoping to hear. Kendrick sang a slew of Top 40 hits from pop princesses, starting with Kesha’s “We R Who We R” and reeling off Britney Spears’ “Womanizer” and Selena Gomez’s “Come And Get It” before ending with a little Iggy Azalea and “Fancy.” We’d be lying if we said we didn’t also enjoy Jay Pharoah’s appearance as Jamaican-accented crab Sebastian, who shined in his solo interpretation of Sean Paul’s “Temperature.” Aca-awesome job, Anna! {mtv.com}

Barnz said in a statement: “Of the zillions of Jennifer Aniston fans, I might be the biggest one of all.
