Later that year, Anna auditioned for the part of Jessica Stanley in the movie Twilight, a 2008 film based on the initial book of the novel series by Stephenie Meyer.

Fortunately for her, she was able to come back for a later session where she was given the role of Jessica. Kendrick reprised this role in the first three Twilight sequels.

She also starred in the movie Up in the Air, based on Walter Kirn's 2001 novel of the same name. For her performance in Up in the Air, the National Board of Review named her Best Supporting Actress, and she also garnered nominations from numerous other awards including The Golden Globes, The Screen Actors Guild, and the Academy Awards.

In October 2010, she attended the 2010 Top Glamour Awards based in Mexico where she won the award for "Best International Actress".

In 2011, she starred in the dramatic comedy 50/50, and reprised her her portrayal of Jessica Stanley in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. In 2012, she played Rosie in the screen adaptation of the baby guide What to Expect When You're Expecting.
