Anna Kendrick deadpanned an hilarious acceptance speech at the AMAs on Sunday, as she and the Pitch Perfect 2 cast won the award for top soundtrack. The actress even managed to talk about dead hookers and threesomes as she and her cast mates accepted their award.

"Holy crap--this is great," she said. "Thank you so much. We were sent here to represent the film and the soundtrack but obviously we hardly did anything at all we just showed up."

Anna Kendrick's trademark humor quickly came to life as she thanked the "unsung heroes of the soundtrack."

"You're a ruthless little group of sociopaths," she added, "and I admire that about you."

Referencing a three-way, towing out compliments and insults, Anna Kendrick closed by mentioning a hooker she buried and a $37 debt.

Pitch Perfect 2 was up against the Empire soundtrack, as well as the soundtrack for Fifty Shades of Gray.

In addition to Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, and Chrissie Fit accepted the award on behalf of the entire Pitch Perfect 2 cast.
