Oscar History: One nomination
Nominated: Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Up in the Air (2009)

Oscar Present?
Role: Cathy Hyatt, a struggling actress who deconstructs the last five years (we have a title!) of her love affair with novelist Jamie Wellerstein (Jeremy Jordan)

Awards: N/A
Nominations: N/A

Festivals:

  • Toronto International Film Festival (2014) – World Premiere

Why? Kendrick’s turn in Pitch Perfect (2012) made her an accidental pop star; her work in Into the Woods and The Last Five Years makes her even more synonymous with the film musical. This role is apparently a great one. Wouldn’t it be appropriate for Kendrick to pick up her first leading nod for a tuner?

Why not? RADiUS-The Weinstein Company picked up the film and slated it for a 2015 release.

Ranking: Out of the running as of Sept. 12, 2014
