Anna Kendrick is one to watch.
She's only in her early twenties, but already, she's quite the resume. Nominated for a Tony Award, with two blockbuster vampire movies - 'Twilight' and the sequel 'New Moon.' And now, some serious Oscar buzz for her new film 'Up In The Air.'
Anna grew up in Portland, Maine, and by the age of twelve, she was on Broadway, in the hit musical 'High Society.' That got her the Tony nomination, one of the youngest nominees ever. Eventually, she got into movies - first, in a musical called 'Camp', and then, a coming of age comedy called 'Rocket Science.'
Then, came the 'Twilight' films, and now, 'Up In The Air.' It's directed by Jason Reitman - who also made 'Juno' - and the star is George Clooney. So, no pressure.
But Anna more than holds her own. In fact, there's a lot of talk she could win the Oscar for best supporting actress.
