‘Up In The Air’ Continues Awards Show Sweep

The cast of Up in The Air have already been having a stellar year–and it’s not even February yet. Leading the charge are the film’s stars, George Clooney and young up-and-comer Anna Kendrick.

At the National Board of Review gala, the Jason Reitman-directed film picked up the prize for best picture, and George was awarded for his action in the film. He tells USA Today, “I’m really good. It’s a nice thing.” Hmm, that’s a pretty nice thing he’s got on his arm in Elisabetta Canalis. We know what’s under that little black dress.

As for his co-star, Kendrick, she was playful in a frothy pale grey, pink and white dress. I just wish her black tights didn’t make her disappear on the “red” carpet of the same color.

Jokingly, Anna tells press of her charming co-star, “I tell him how sick I am of talking about him. I give him a hard time.” Well, it sounds like these guys are Oscar-bound, so it will be a little while longer before we’re done with them.

The full list of winners is after the jump.
