Just one day before the Academy Awards, 50/50 star Anna Kendrick managed to fit in a little relaxation time after walking the red carpet at the Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, Calif., on Saturday. She and an unidentifiable male "made a beeline" backstage where she sipped on a cocktail made of Jameson Irish Whiskey, a three-year sponsor of the awards. An onlooker tells PEOPLE that the actress "was very friendly to others in the lounge and seemed to be a in a great mood as she enjoyed her beverage." – Dahvi Shira
