My favorite would be Tiffany Maxwell.
Jennifer Lawrence, hands-down.
Jennifer Lawrence gave the only performance in the film that
I thought was Oscar worthy…..
Bradley was very good
DeNiro was over rated
Jacki Weaver did NOT deserve her nomination..
So, in the end results…Harvey made sure the right
person won HER oscar….
Next year..he has STREEP and ROBERTS and a couple more
Bradley Cooper surprised the hell out of me with his performance. Robert De Niro was the best he’s been in years. But, for me, its Jennifer Lawrence for sure. Her performance was easily the best part of the film for me. She didn’t win an Oscar for nothing, people.
I probably should go with Lawrence here, but damn if Bradley Cooper didn’t just delight me with how good he was here. He gets my pick just for surpassing my expectations so much.
Bradley Cooper gets my vote.
1. Bradley Cooper
2. Robert De Niro
3. Jennifer Lawrence
4. Jacki Weaver
5. Chris Tucker
6. The others
How is this a question? Jennifer Lawrence all the way. She took a pretty interesting character and expanded the quality making her far more entertaining. Cooper was great as well. I always saw him as some one range movie star, but after seeing SLP, I see he has great talent and range.
Everyone else in the film was overrated. De Niro really only played himself, and the only significant thing Weaver did was talk in an American accent.
Yeah, Weaver shouldn’t have been nominated. Maggie Smith should have been nominated over here.
