SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD

Actress ANNA KENDRICK (Stacey Pilgrim) notably starred in Picturehouse Entertainment's Rocket Science, directed by Jeffrey Blitz. Her performance as an ultracompetitive high-school debate team member garnered critical acclaim and the film received a nomination for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. For her work in the film, Kendrick was nominated for a Film Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actress.

In 2008, Kendrick was seen in the blockbuster feature film Twilight. She also starred in its sequel, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which was released in theaters nationwide on November 20, 2009. The second installment of the popular franchise pulled in record-breaking numbers at the box office. Recently, Kendrick wrapped production on the highly anticipated third film of the Twilight Saga, titled Eclipse.

Kendrick starred in the lauded Paramount Pictures film Up in the Air, opposite George Clooney and Jason Bateman. In the film she played Natalie Keener, a fresh-out-of- college rising star at the company where both she and Clooney's character are employed. This unique company specializes in "career transition counseling” (a euphemism for firing people). The film, which was directed by Jason Reitman, received rave reviews at its premiere at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival and was released nationwide on December 25, 2009.

For her work in the film Up in the Air, the National Board of Review named Kendrick Best Supporting Actress. Additionally, the highly respected Critics' Choice Movie Awards, the Golden Globes as well as the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominated Kendrick in the Best Supporting Actress category. Kendrick also received a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the 82nd Academy Awards®.

Currently, the budding starlet is filming an as yet untitled dark comedy, opposite Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Kendrick made her feature film debut in Todd Graff's Camp, a darling of the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. Her performance in the cult hit earned her a Film Independent Spirit Award nomination as well as a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the annual Chlotrudis Awards.

An accomplished theater veteran, Kendrick began her career as Dinah Lord in the 1997 Broadway musical production of High Society, for which she received a Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical. At 12 years old, the honor made her the second youngest Tony Award nominee in award history. Kendrick also garnered The Drama League and Theatre World awards as well as Drama Desk and FANY award nominations.

Kendrick's additional theater work includes a featured role with the New York City Opera's production of A Little Night Music, starring Jeremy Irons, My Favorite Broadway—The Leading Ladies: Live at Carnegie Hall and Broadway workshops of Jane Eyre and The Little Princess.

She currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
