The Twilight saga has introduced many new talented stars, one of those shining at this moment is Anna Kendrick for her role in the critically acclaimed movie Up In The Air with her mega co-star hunk George Clooney.
She has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress, and has earned an Academy Award nomination for her role of prim and professional go-getter, Natalie Keener. The 24-year-old was a breath of fresh air in a movie that was otherwise gloomy and depressing.

Some of her other work includes films; Camp and Rocket Science.
In 1998, she was the youngest person nominated for the prestigious Tony Award for her role in a Broadway musical, High Society. She is also a Golden Globe and Oscar nominee.
