I would play that “New York, Park Avenue” scene for Blanchett when she’s in Peter Sarsgaard’s balcony. It’s her performance in a nutshell right there. Cringeworthy, hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time.November 28, 2013 at 6:00 am #119633
based on the hype and buzz, for Octavia Spencer in Fruitvale Station, it would be the prison sceneNovember 28, 2013 at 10:18 am #119634

Hanks: The final scene when he is trying to answer the doctor’s questions.
McConaughey: The scene when he is questioned dressed as a priest.
Chiwetel Ejiofor: Singing with the slaves.
Michael B. Jordon: Confrontation with the cops on the subway platform.
Blanchett: “I SAW YOUUUUUU, ERICAAAA”
Bullock: I personally liked the “I am the sole survivor..” Or the scene where she cries.
Meryl Streep: I haven’t seen the movie, just the play. But I’m hoping she kills the “WHERE’S THE BEEF?! WHERE’S THE BEEF?!” moment. Assuming it’s still in the movie.. Someone please tell me it is..
Fassbender: Whipping Patsey
Jared Leto: Scene with the father
Barkhad Abdi: The “Maybe in America” scene was powerful, but I think his best acting moment was when he first talks to Phillips and takes control of the ship, “I’m the captain now..” GREAT performance in that moment.
Jake Gyllenhaal: I loved him when he was trying to remain calm while first interviewing Jackman and Leoni
Oprah: When she is drunk, putting on lipstick, and asking her husband about Jackie Kennedy.
Lupita: Asking Ejiofor for the favor
Julia Roberts: “I’M RUNNING THINGS NOW!”
Sally Hawkens: Asking her husband what to do about her brother in-law cheating on her sister.

Octavia Spencer: “I told him to take the bus.”
Melonie Diaz: When she is screaming that her boyfriend was still on the platform.
I think that’s it from those I’ve seen..November 28, 2013 at 5:01 pm #119636

Blue Jasmine is like having hundreds of Oscar clips for Blanchett.
Babysitting scene, Erica Bishop, You choose losers scene, Ending monologue scene…
I personally love to see the scene where Jasmine picked up the call from Dwight after Chili’s fight as her Oscar clip.
She was back to manners after 5 seconds breathing and then cried after the call. So funny and heartbreaking.
