“Up in the Air” nominee Anna Kendrick observed, “It’s really strange when you’re rolling up to something that’s a special night, you feel like you should be able to kind of give your skin and your hair a break. And it’s been kind of nonstop. I’m wearing makeup like all day everyday. I’m sort of waiting for the most disastrous breakout any moment.”

As for her dress? “I think it’s really special and I’m really happy with it,” the diminutive Kendrick replied. “And my roommate basically said the magic words when I put it on. He said it made me look tall.”
