Anna Kendrick roasts Ryan Reynolds during Teen Choice Awards speech after winning 'Choice Twit'
Sorry, Oscars, Emmys and Grammys - you're not lit. But you know what awards show is totally lit? The Teen Choice Awards! The prestigious ceremony honors outstanding achievements in music, film, television, sports, fashion, comedy, and the internet. (I don't know about you, but I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see who won Best Tide Pod Eater.)
American viewers 13 and over voted for their favorites on social media websites their parents have never heard of. At the star-studded event, the winners were announced via a teen "super fan" on a livestream, which was pretty adorable. Then the winners took the stage to give a speech and accept the coveted surfboard. Teens were thrilled to honor Chris Pratt, Millie Bobby Brown, and everyone from the TV show Riverdale. But perhaps the "trillest" moment was when Anna Kendrick won for Choice Comedy Movie Actress.
We know Anna as a delightful actress, singer, author and lady who can fit in a suitcase. But she's also a Tweeter. When she picked the award for her acting in Pitch Perfect 3, she also won a "surprise bonus award" for Choice Twit, aka favorite Twitter personality. Her competition in the category was fierce, including Chrissy Teigen, Mark Hamill, Kumail Nanjiani, Mindy Kaling and Mr. Blake Lively, aka Ryan Reynolds. And Anna couldn't help but gloat at Deadpool's crushing loss.
You might recall, a couple months ago, Anna had a hilarious exchange with Ryan and Blake on social media. See, Anna and Blake star in the upcoming mystery thriller, A Simple Favor. Blake shared an image of the movie poster on Instagram, with the caption "[Anna] is the hotter, female(r) version of my husband... so, would it reaaaally count as cheating??" Anna commented, "“So glad we’re finally taking this public. I let Ryan have Deadpool, he can give me this." Ryan responded, "The most ambitious crossover event in history. I’ll miss you both. Tell my story."
So, Anna totally roasted Ryan during her acceptance speech:
"You guys, you guys, you guys! Did I just hear that I was named Choice Twitter? Oh my God...This means so much to me, thank you so much. It means the world to me and I feel so lucky that I get to make Pitch Perfect...
The Twitter thing - I have so much fun on Twitter, and I know that Mindy and Kumail and stuff were nominated, and also I know that Ryan Reynolds was nominated, so in your face, Ryan! Yeah! I beat you! Stay in your lane! Thank you so much. I’m going to go now."
So far, Ryan hasn't responded on Twitter. We'll have to wait and see if he is - to use some hip teen slang - "salty" and decides to "throw shade." But all the teens agree, Anna's entertaining speech made the award show "straight fire," "the GOAT" and "all that and a bag of chips."
