I think people are underestimating her. She was a scene stealer in Pitch Perfect, hilarious, and showed a lot of character development. There wasn’t much of a difference between her and Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids. I’d say she should be in the running for supporting actress. What do you think?
While I agree that Rebel was just as good, and maybe even better than Melissa McCarthy was in Bridesmaids, Pitch Perfect hasn’t been nearly the commercial or critical hit that Bridesmaids was. That definitely knocks her down a long ways, and that category seems to be fairly competitive this year.
She was hilarious, but I don’t think she showed the emotional depths needed. Plus Pitch Perfect is an average quality film at best. Is anyone saying it’s one of the best films of the year, as people were saying about Bridesmaids? NOPE.
Bridesmaids was considered one of the best films of the year last year? Wow 2011 must’ve been a horrid year in films if thats the case.
Yes! Bridesmaid had me and everyone on the floor!
Saw ‘Pitch Perfect’. It’s cute, has it’s moments.. Rebel Wilson won’t be up for ANY awards besides MTV or Teen Choice ones. She doesn’t have anywhere near the kind of role Melissa McCarthy had. Plus ‘Bridesmaids’ was an awards player all season… Golden Globes, SAG, Critic’s Choice, and Oscar. Wilson is NOT McCarthy.
I really loved this film, and I was even more in love with Wilson. If we’re going to compare it to Bridesmaids, I would say PP was a ton more original and had funnier moments. I wouldn’t exactly say there was a huge difference between her and McCarthy, even though Wilson was a lot more funnier and didn’t try as hard. McCarthy was just in a film with better reviews.
I’d say the farthest this film would go is probably the Globes, where its possible she’ll be nominated. Though I think Kendrick has the best shot at a nomination there.
