On her Oscar nod: “You find out with the rest of the world. I was too nervous to watch the nominations on TV, so I went for a jog, but my phone started going off. I sprinted back home, cracked a bottle of champagne and started drinking it before I realized it was 5 a.m.”
On looking forward to bumps in the road: “Meryl Streep was in Stuck on You, so no one’s career is perfect.”
On learning that the role of Natalie was written for her specifically: “When he told me, I just tried to act really cool. I wasn’t all that successful at it.”

Anna’s been a very busy little bee concerning appearances and award shows, this is no different! Anna will be presenting at the Screen Actor’s Guild awards. She’s also a nominee for Best Supporting Actress. Here’s some various articles touching on the topic.
Anna Kendrick was on the Red Carpet at the Critic CHoice Awards and was asked about Breaking Dawn being made into two separate movies. What did she have to say about it?
“If it is [split], great. If it’s not, great,” Kendrick insisted, saying it’s not that she doesn’t care, but that she has no control over the situation. “I understand why they would want to do that, but it’s not my call.
“I find out when the fans find out. That’s true,” she laughed when asked when she expects to be briefed on how “Breaking Dawn” will be shot. “You will find out before I find out, actually. Text me.”
