2013 Best Actress Oscar Contenders
From Amy Adams to Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Anna Kendrick - 'Pitch Perfect'
Pro: Kendrick is a former nominee in the supporting actress category for "Up in the Air." Everyone and their mother loves "Perfect" and she's a potential player in the best actress in a musical or comedy category at the Globes. She also received strong marks this year in David Ayer's "End of Watch."
Con: Unfortunately, Kendrick isn't the most memorable performance in "Perfect." that goes to co-star Rebel Wilson. Complicating matters is that "Perfect" isn't the super word of mouth smash everyone thought it would be. If it was going to gross over $100 million she'd be a Golden Globe and possibly SAG Awards lock. An eventual gross of $50 million? Not so much.
