    Kunis had much more to do in Black Swan than Robbie in OUATIH and yet Robbie was predicted for that movie to bitter end and Time had that performance as one of their top 10. There are receipts of critics, pundits and predictors straining to explain that what she did with her eyes and feet was more glorious than performances that had actual work to do.

    point being, every year there’s a performance that coattails the movie hype and then people look back and wonder WTF the hype was about. But I’d say Kunis is the least problematic of them.

    Maybe–just maybe–there’s more to do with acting than merely having a role with a lot to do…

    People always hype up the performances of the young beautiful starlets. This has been happening since forever. I was really talking about Kunis though. The difference between Kunis and Pinto and Robbie is that Kunis actually gave a fine to good performance whereas Pinto and Robbie were passable to alright but nothing noteworthy. Kunis was also nominated for SAG and the Golden Globe and came close to being nominated for an Oscar whereas Pinto and Robbie didn’t seem to at all be close to being nominated for the top awards.

    I just don’t get what was so Oscar worthy of Kunis’s performance. You never really explained why you found her great. I’m not asking about other actresses, I’m asking about Kunis in Black Swan.

    absolutely but Robbie in OUATIH wasn’t it. It was Pitt in OUATIH with his seemingly effortless turn.

    well, Kunis got SAG and Robbie/Pinto got BAFTA noms so that’s pretty much the same. And we know that BAFTA could tip it off. But anyway, I’d say that Kunis impresed me with how natural her performance was and also more complex than given credit for. She was a villain on surface or at least through Nina’s eyes but really wasn’t. So she had to play the character as both what she was and how Nina saw her. Amazing. Also, no freakin actressing. I do understand why people don’t think she was Oscar worthy and in the end she wasn’t nominated so that’s that.
