Character: Annie in Bridesmaids

Film: The film centres on Annie (Wiig), a simple and single 30-something Midwestern girl (with poor dating track record) who is asked to be her best friend Lillian's (Maya Rudolph) maid of honour.

However, having never done the job, she struggles to please the snobby, rich bridesmaids at every pre-wedding event.

And one of Lillian's best friends is essentially the bridesmaid from hell (Rose Byrne) - who attempts to take over the maid of honour duties from the inexperienced Annie.

Previous Golden Globe Wins: Wiig has no previous Golden Globe wins.

Previous Golden Globe Nominations: This is her first nomination,

Critics: “Kristen Wiig (who you’ll recognise from Saturday Night Live) is the star at the centre of the film, both co-writing and as the lead and in her first lead role, she easily carries the film which centres on her character Annie.” - FemaleFirst

“Sharply written and winningly performed, it delivers more laughs than any movie released this year, but also, the longer it goes on, develops into a surprisingly poignant evocation of self-scuppering loneliness.” - Daily Telegraph

“Wiig's brand of comedy is loud, proud and just gosh darned funny.” - Digital Spy
