And the Oscar Goes to...
Tonight, David O. Russell's muse, Jennifer Lawrence beat out Lupita Nyong'o (and Oprah Winfrey, Julia Roberts and Sallie Hawkins a well though none were seen as strong contenders) for the 2014 Bafta for Best Supporting Actress thereby making the Oscar race even tighter, as last month Lupita Nyong'o took home the SAG award while Lawrence bagged the Golden Globe. Who will win? My prediction: Lupita. While I love Lawrence, she won the Oscar for Best Actress last year and I somehow doubt the Academy will name her twice. She's not Meryl Streep...yet, who, by the way, should lose this year to Cate Blanchett, star of Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine.
