Kendrick Praises Awards Rival Mo'nique

ANNA KENDRICK refused to be disheartened after failing to win any major acting accolades at this year's (10) glitzy awards ceremonies - because she was delighted to see rival MO'NIQUE win a huge haul for her "humbling" turn in PRECIOUS.
The two stars went head to head for the Best Supporting Actress trophy several times earlier this year (10), at film events including the Golden Globes, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards and the Oscars.
Kendrick's role in Up In The Air failed to land her any of the coveted awards, while Mo'Nique swept the board at most of the major ceremonies for her turn in Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire.
But the Twilight actress refuses to hold a grudge.
She says, "There's no way of saying this that doesn't make it sound like I'm just trying to be polite but Mo'Nique gave such a humbling performance, that to see her win again and again didn't make me feel bad at all.
"In a way, it took a lot of the pressure off because I didn't feel that I was losing to a performance I didn't admire. And I know it sounds cheesy, but it really was a dream come true to be at the Oscars - I never thought I'd get to be there."
