better performance?January 25, 2016 at 4:25 am #212763
What a very random pairing. Why not another performance in the same year? (Nominated or not)January 25, 2016 at 4:37 am #212764
Also, what’s the point of having another Jennifer Lawrence-bashing thread around? I’m already bored by the rest of them. So stupid and pointless.
My choice: Jennifer Lawrence, Silver Linings Playbook. Pike didn’t have much screentime in the first hour, but she’s magnetic as well. It’s probably only 51% for Lawrence. So it’s a close call.January 25, 2016 at 4:46 am #212765
Pike in Gone Girl. Maybe it’s because I read Gone Girl, and Pike just blew my mind with what she did with Amy – I didn’t think she would have been capable of it at first, but boy was I wrong. Also, Amy has so many layers compared to Tiffany in Silver Linings, that she is just a more fascinating, cinematic character that stays with you more. I did really like Silver Linings and Lawrence, but she wasn’t my choice for Actress in her year (Chastain was for Zero Dark Thirty), but Pike was outstanding, and even my choice for Actress last year.January 25, 2016 at 5:37 am #212767
Both gave phenomenal performances in my opinion but Pike just edges it.January 25, 2016 at 5:37 am #212766
I don’t know what one thing has to do with the other, but of course Rosamund Pike.
And I agree, what’s the purpose of another Lawrence thread?January 25, 2016 at 6:12 am #212768
Jennifer Lawrence, for me. While I did like Rosamund Pike, I’ve never been as taken with her performance as others.January 25, 2016 at 6:20 am #212769
Amazing Amy, of course.January 25, 2016 at 6:21 am #212770
Rosamund Pike. Jennifer Lawrence is overacting in Silver Linings PlaybookJanuary 25, 2016 at 6:30 am #212771
Pike , by far.January 25, 2016 at 6:33 am #212772
None of the above.January 25, 2016 at 7:05 am #212773
is the question which is more overrated, or more specifically which should never have been anywhere near the awards conversation?
to those questions, I can’t decide so I’d say both.January 25, 2016 at 8:43 am #212774
Not sure what you’d like us to compare.
It’s The Owl and The Pussycat for me….January 25, 2016 at 8:57 am #212775
It’s like comparing apples and kumquats, but I’ll go with Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl. She had more layers to showcase imo.
