    Another “Into the Woods” thread. But only because everybody is talking about Streep and Blunt, but not about my love, Miss Perfection, Anna Kendrick herself.

    She was the front-runner in early predictions. I remember she was first everywhere – people assumed that after the huge hit of “Pitch Perfect” and “The Cup Song”, also with an Oscar nomination under her belt, she’s a sure bet for a second nomination.

    What ever happened to her? Okay, Meryl went supporting. Who cares? It makes it impossible to Kendrick, then? I don’t think so. 

    Kendrick’s young career is one of the most interesting one I’ve seen lately, she’s doing complitely different movies like “Pitch Perfect” “End of Watch” “Twilight Franchise” “Happy Christmas” “Up in the Air” “Into the Woods” or “50/50”. I’m just hoping for her in the Supporting Actress category. She’s totally worthy for a second Oscar nomination at this point.

    every few years a new young actress shows up who is supposed to be the next A-lister…for a few years they are everywhere, in every other movie, mostly playing second fiddle to a hot white male (Clooney, JGL)…some of them even manage to grab an Oscar nom… but once HW realizes that nobody finds them talented or likeable and they won’t put butts in seats they drop them and move on to the next one…and then they are stuck doing crap like this

    for other examples see Ellen Page, Blake Lively, Mira Sorvino, GOOP etc.

    That is just stupid. People like and admire Kendrick. And the actresses you mentioned are also very good. Especially Page. And Sorvino is an Oscar-winner. I expected much worthy answers.

    Her role in Into the Woods isn’t very showy like others. She is like Amanda Seyfried in Les Mis just sings very high songs

    She has films coming out in the near future like “Into the Woods”, “Pitch Perfect 2” and “The Last 5 Years”. She’s young and pretty, she has lots of time to gain a bigger profile in Hollywood.

    First off – no one has seen Into the Woods yet, so we don’t know what to expect! It’s one of the biggest contenders that we haven’t seen, which is why its hard to predict her with the women we have seen, and knowing that Meryl (the queen who will not be snubbed for Kendrick) and Blunt (debatably overdue for a nomination in a good role) are her biggest challenges. For Kendrick to get nominated Into the Woods has to be amazing and supported enough for two ladies to get in supporting for a category that gets more and more packed each week. I believe she has a shot because she is well liked by so many people, but first we need to see it, and frankly no one from Into the Woods is in some people’s predictions just because it’s unseen, which is like how on some people’s predictions we’ve seen Amy Adams drop, because no one has seen her. Once this movie finally premieres then things will really get interesting!

    Bey, what you talking about?  Kendrick is one of the most sought after and respected Hollywood actresses in the 25-30 age bracket right now…

    Well, Kendrick is already an Oscar-nominee. So she’s more liked than Blunt at this point. And she’s also overdue for another nomination.  Blunt to get nominated has to be much more amazing and supported in lead, than Kendrick in supporting for the Oscar nomination. If people like Jacki Weaver could be a nominee for “Silver Linings Playbook”, anyone can be a Supporting Actress nominee. But to get a nomination in lead, you need to be buzzed by the audience (Emmanuelle Riva)  or famous enough (Laura Linney), so-so performances are not happening. In supporting – only those happening lately.

    Have you seen the film? I’ve only read one or two reviews, and they only said that Streep is showy, Blunt is so-so, and Pine is standout. I’m not sure that it’s enough to say that she’s like Amanda Seyfried in Les Misérables (complitely Oscar-worthy for both “Les Misérables” and “Lovelace” if you ask me).

    Excuse me but you said in another comment that you have read reviews of this film? Where? This film has not premiered anywhere yet how can anyone reputable actually write a review? And also – Anna Kendrick is 29, and has not had any role as critically acclaimed since Up in the Air, so as much as I love her there is no way she is overdue for a second Oscar nomination. Blunt has never been nominated so and has had so many great performances and so she is overdue. She may have a challenge getting in as a Lead actress, but right now without anyone actually seeing the film, on paper it is less challenging then for Kendrick because Blunt has a great and meaty role.

    There were some guys on Awards Watch who saw the movie already. It’s not premiered yet, but there were some test screenings.

    I see, you prefer Blunt, it’s okay, but to say that she’s like more overdue is not fair. I think both Kendrick and Blunt has a wonderful career and had raved performances before. Blunt had The Devil Wears Prada and The Young Victoria, or even Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, Kendrick had Up in the Air, Pitch Perfect and End of Watch – I think they are pretty much equal right now.

    I love Anna Kendrick. I’m in love with her, I want to marry her, she’s a national treasure, it’s fine. So now with that out of the way, I also hope she comes back. I was predicting her for a while, but with no word coming I just kept moving her down for people that have been seen. That’s how it works, when a movie comes out it gets a surge of buzz and everyone changes around their predictions, so it’s very possible the same thing will happen when Into the Woods comes out. I’m just a littl weary of the movie as a whole and how well it’s going to do more than Kendrick, I’m sure she’ll be incredible just like she is in literally everything.

    But also, with the debate of if it’s easier to get in lead or supporting, the academy LOVES supporting actresses in musicals. Since Chicago, everytime a musical has hit big with the academy (multiple noms, wide support) a supporting actress has WON (Zeta-Jones, Hudson, Hathaway). Even the musicals they don’t really like that much usually get a supporting actress in (Cruz). With that said, will Kendrick be the supporting actress to be represented or will it be Streep (if she even stays in this category)? Will they pull a Chicago and double dip? Will Into the Woods even do well with the academy or will they completely ignore it? Who knows. But as much as I would love for her to be nominated I don’t think I’ll add her to my predictions until the movie is seen.

    I’ve seen the musical. The vocal range of the part is like Amanda Seyfried, that’s what I’m saying.

    Everyone has acting slumps. Tom Hanks was in serious contention last year, after he wasn’t nominated since 2000. That’s an extreme case, but I seriously believe that Anna Kendrick has a lot of promise and is still very young. Remember Christopher Plummer was 83 when he got his first Oscar.

    I love her. I love her. I love her. I love her humour, I love her smile, I love how humble and grounded she appears to be. Also she’s cute as hell and totally makes me type. With that said, she’s in a good position to get a second nomination. I believe she would win the Oscar with no Mo’Nique in the way, she was stellar in Up In The Air and had strong support. I love how talented she is. She’s just great. I love her.
