    Jennifer Lawrence is a good actress in her generation. Not the best, but compared to a lot of young actresses she's good, because the lineup is very weak. But for the love of god can we stop pretending that she's one of the best actresses in the world, because that is a joke ! She's mediocre compared to the top actresses.

    I loved her in American Hustle. JL is a very talented young woman and she'll only get better. Congrats, I want her to snap the Oscar.

    Jennifer won two out of the three major critic's awards this season. She out acted everyone in her category by a wide margin. And let's try to be honest about this Lupita love. It's shallow racial politics. It's so transparent it is actually offensive. Jennifer became an IT girl by carrying film after film. Whereas racial panderers want to anoint Lupita due to the color of her skin. I thought Hawkins was better than Lupita as well but you don't see the efforts to make her into something she isn't.

    Re: astro

    You're so right. And white people never win or get anything because of racial politics. It's so funny that whenever a person of color gets ANYTHING, racist assh*les like you throw a temper tantrum. I believe that Jennifer Lawrence's performance was not very good and Lupita delivered a performance that had way more depth. That has nothing to do with race. Maybe you should examine why you are so cynical and frankly, racist.

    she is one of the best actresses out there today. she should have won for Winters Bone. I hope she doesn't change.

    Actually, Jennifer lawrence IS the best actress of her generation and has been receiving praise from critics since the begining of her career. as far as this years Oscars are concerned…well, all the nominees are deserving. I still think Nyong'o will win the Oscar (and good for her) but if Lawrence wins…then good for her.

    It's also worth noting that Jennifer lawrence has publicly supported Lupita Nyong'o (admittd that she voted for her) and that Nyong'o counts Lawrence as one of the actresses that she respects very much as well. Both actresses respect each other…so, it makes sense to NOT pit them against each other.

    Re: Gina – because she is. Get over it. If you've watched all her films you'd know how real and talented Jen is ! She deserves ever award 100% her acting skill are full on amazing and she's just begining. American hustle has revealed a whole new layer of talent. She deserved this BAFTA and deserves the oscar , and many awards yet to come.

    Re: shaygirl1309 – -Truth hurts. Explain to me about Lupita's "depth." She was raped, beaten and whipped in a few minutes of screen time. What depth? It was pure reaction. No layers. No interpretation. No dimension. No range. Just not a challenging role and not even the best supporting actress in 12YAS.
    I love it when everyone obsesses about race, yet when you point this out it's "racism." Racial politics are all over this category. If Lupita was just another white actress in a supporting role in her very first film would she be getting this sort of push? Would she have even been nominated? She is getting more hype than Jennifer got for a lead role in Winter's Bone, one of the best lead performances in years, and this after Jennifer had already put in her time in other films and roles. I call it like I see it. Sorry. But shallow racial politics it is.

    This is bullshit. I love Jennifer, and she's a great actress, but she didn't deserve this. At least not for this movie. She overacted in "Hustle" and her accent slipped all the way through. And for it being Lupita's first movie, she played the hell out of it. Jennifer is overrated at times, and she gets more acclaim because of how young she is. But she's not Meryl, not even close. I hope she doesn't win the Oscar (Lupita deserves it, but even if she doesn't win it, either) because it will set her standards way too high that she can't live up to. There's a such thing as peaking too soon. She IS so young and her career, as far as what people expect, will halt. She'll still get nominations, but she won't be regarded as high as she is now. I sincerely hope Lupita wins because, honestly, compare the performances side-by-side and Lupita's breaks your heart because you believe it. Jennifer's looks like she's playing dress-up. It doesn't take away her talent in any way, but Lupita is leaps and bounds better if you solely compare "American Hustle" and "12 Years A Slave."

    she was alright in that movie.. her accent kept slipping in and out. Sometimes she spoke with a Boston accent, then suddenly it became more southern… lol. Love her though. Lupita is very talented and beautiful also.

    Re: Alyssa – I don't need to get over anything. If i think she's crap, than that's my opinion. You can kiss her ass all you want, celebrate her averageness, but don't expect me to do the same! She's popular( Whole new layer of talent being incapable of keeping up an accent ? lol)

    Re: astro – If Lupita was white they would be overrating even more than they do now. Would Jennifer be getting the same praise if she were black? No. She wouldn't get parts period.
