^ My favorite part was that he would be very surprised if it doesn't get nominated. It doesn't deserve it. Marvel hasn't made a movie thus far that even belongs in the same sentence as Best Picture.

I think she seriously outshone everyone else in that movie because her performance seemed so grounded in reality. Talent-wise, the actors who played Gale and Peeta aren't even in the same stratosphere as Jennifer Lawrence. Wes Bentley and the overrated Elizabeth Banks seemed a bit too gimicky (the latter more so). Donald Sutherland was kinda sleep-walking his way through that role. But Lenny Kravitz was surprisingly likeable enough.

So, action star? Check. Dramatic roles with indie cred? Check. I wonder if she has any comedic chops.
Right I forgot about that moment. Other than that then people have called her bland in that 30 or so minutes but that's how she was supposed to be.

EDIT: Well not bland...but just stunned and in shock but not trying to show just how scared she is and displaying weakness.
