Chris O'Dowd not hopeful about BAFTA chances
Kristen Wiig leads the cast of this comedy as a maid of honor who begins to come unglued as she leads her best friend (played by Maya Rudolph) down the road to matrimony. Making the experience especially memorable and somewhat miserable is a group of colorful bridesmaids (played by Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ellie Kemper). Directed by Paul Feig.
Chris O'Dowd doesn't think he has a ''hope in hell'' of winning the BAFTA Orange Rising Star Award.
The 'Bridesmaids' actor is up against Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Adam Deacon and Eddie Redmayne for the in the category that is voted for by the public, but he does not believe he is likely to win the prize at the BAFTAs on Sunday (12.02.12).
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''I'm pretty sure I don't have a hope in hell, but I'm still going to wear a suit because I just like the way it makes my butt look. I think Adam Deacon is going to walk it.
''I think he's going to win. He's like a self-promotional animal. I think it's a good line-up you know.''
The 32-year-old star admits being hailed as a rising star means he now feels more youthful.
He added: ''I feel wonderfully young suddenly. It's an enlightening time.''
Despite the success of 'Bridesmaids', Chris will not be able to celebrate its two Oscar nominations because he will be working when the ceremony happens at the end of February.
He added: ''I'm working man it can't happen. I'm writing and executive producing and acting in the thing I'm in now, I just can't get a day off.''
