Im sorry but I thought lupitas performance was very confusing contradictory and mediocre. People laud her because of the sympathy they feel for the role she played. People need to separate Lupita from Patsey. I honestly look at the praise for her as white guilt. Now its cool and fashionable to over praise any person of color especially when its a black movie. And yes this is said by a black girl. Kenyan to be exact.

This is absolutely ridiculous, most of Jennifer’s fans are just the fans of The Hunger Games. If she wasn’t in The Hunger Games, she wouldn’t get all this attention.

Lupita is very overrated she played in 1 big movie,just because her characters life was the hardest doesnt mean she deserves to win it doesnt take much talent to cry in a movie and get beaten up.plus Lupita will never land a role like this again she isnt that good of an actress she can play depressing characters which isnt that hard meanwhile Jennifer played many characters and had a lot of successful movies like Winters Bone Silver Linings Playbook Hunger Games etc

Thank you so much for saying that. I hate how JLaw fans think that they have the right to say that Lupita (or some other actress) is overrated. When their idol is extremely overrated. She’s a good actress, but not THAT good to get two Oscars in a row. But guess what, they think she is.

Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t diverse that Oscar because Lupita was amazing in 12 years a slave and Jennifer acting in her previous movies should get her an Oscar. Oscars are for people with outstanding performances like Lupita.

The Hunger Games is a young adult political satire in the vein of 1984 and Lord of the Flies. It educates and warns about a dystopian future.

You have a right to your opinion and go ahead and keep expressing it while sitting behind your computer being bitter towards someone you don’t know while Jennifer is enjoying her well deserved success. You are a wonderful example of the saying: haters gone hate. So keep on hating hater and the Hunger Games is an amazing movie franchise and even better books.

Sorry, the THANK YOU AND AGREED was in response to the guest comment about being sick of Jen law and about the Hunger Games. I agree. Half the time you can SEE her acting like it’s a junior high play. She is good but not for so many Oscars when better actresses her age have none. Agreed also about the Hunger Games. Yes it is a best selling franchise but shocked that so many people ignore the fact that it IS about kids killing other kids yet so many parents rush to take their kids to it. Overrated and sick.

Again, The Hunger Games is a political satire in the vein of 1984 and Lord of the Flies. It educates and warns about a dystopian future. It’s marketed toward young adults for the same reason that they teach the aforementioned books in schools.

Jennifer is a really good actress but her performance was not the best of the year by far. Her character is barely in American Hustle. Lupita Nyong and Julia Roberts are both much more deserving of this award.

Here’s why I can’t take a show like the Oscars seriously: You can’t compare comedies and dramas and objectively ask which one is better. You can’t. They’re such different entities that to try and pick a winner in that sort of a category does a disservice to the movies and to everyone involved in making the movies. The best way to resolve an issue like this is to go the way of the Emmys and create separate comedy and drama categories for:

Best Picture
Best Actor in a Leading Role
Best Actor in a Supporting Role
Best Actress in a Leading Role
Best Actress in a Supporting Role
Best Adapted Screenplay
Best Original Screenplay
Best Director

It’s the only way to do justice to each project and each performance.

Also, stop needlessly slamming actors/actresses over the performances. I don’t care if you didn’t like their performance or if you think someone else should win, mudslinging and insult hurling like what is currently happening in this moronic “Lupita vs. Jennifer” war only further diminishes the actors/actresses and the merits of each performance.

Both actresses are amazing talents. Who wins is up to the academy. So if whoever you wanted to win, whether it’s one of these two ladies or one of the others that are nominated, doesn’t win be mad at the academy and don’t blame or bash the actress. It’s out of her control.

Jennifer Lawrence is an amazing talent. She is a hell of an actress. That’s why she is getting known as the next Meryl Streep. Let’s see you try to do a tenth of what she does on screen.

Guys, don’t forget that either Lupita or Jennifer wins, it’s the academy fault. Don’t hate any of the actress after know what actress win the award. It’s the academy who decide who wins so even if jennifer who wins or it’s lupita who wins, please, don’t forget that they only does their work. Let’s just be happy that they have a oscar nomination. we know both are amazing actress and that’s what matters

I love Jennifer Lawrence, she’s funny and a great actress and she deserved the golden globe for American hustle, but Lupita deserves this oscar. JLaw was in AH for a total of maybe 20 mins. Lupita had much more screen time, acting out scenes where she was being beaten and whipped and raped. Those scenes were gut wrenching. During her scenes she manages to make you feel angry and sad and hopeful. Lupita deserves this win.

Lawrence actually had the more complicated and challenging role. More dimension and range. Nyongo plays a very sympathetic character but it’s one note. Her circumstances affect you less so than her acting.

Complicated and challenging doesn’t necessary translate to a better performance. All fair minded individuals know J Law is by far the best young actress in the World, but Nyongo’s performance was stronger.

Considering you havent seen all the young actresses in the world, how can you say that shes the best? personally I think the young french actressadele exarchopoulos is a much better actress than Lawrence is.

@orchid Lawrence basically played Tiffany from SLP in american hustle so her role wasn’t more challenging.

OMG thats such crap! JLaw’s character wasnt more challenging to play. Did she have to play a character who was raped repeatedly? Did she have to play a character that was treated so so horribly? did she have to play a character where the actress had to strip naked and be tied to a pole to film the whipping scene? All JLaw had to do was show her cleavage and give a horrible accent.

Okay, but you’re actively ignoring what I said. What’s the point in putting down another actress’s performance besides starting an Internet flame war? There are respectful ways to express your opinion. As a performer myself, I’ve been nominated and snubbed for awards that I know I rightfully deserved, but putting down others is not the way to get your point across.

Hey Bonnie, Don´t be so silly.

Everyone knows that Jennifer Lawrence is the most talented and successful young female movie star in Hollywood. She is the top money making movie star and the best actress in Hollywood.
She is the youngest actress with 3 Oscars nominations in Hollywood history.

Therefore, Stop being so dumb, Bonnie !!!

I personally think that bonnie speaks the truth because all Jennifer did was play a ditzy blonde and lupita acted her heart out in that film. I don’t really think Jennifer even DESERVED the golden globe award. The only reason she won was because she was more popular

Can’t get nominated or win an award because you’re popular. The media and public can make you popular by liking you or hating you. You have to have actual talent to win or get nominated. Both Jennifer and Lupita are vey, very talented actresses.

Thank you! She didnt deserve that award. And Sarah? Dont kid yourself. Awards are all about politics and who likes who best. If you’ve seen Amour then you know that JLaw only won the Oscar last year cuz shes America’s new sweetheart. And she only won the Globe, a known popularity contest, because of her status as America’s Sweetheart.

For once I agree with HL,Lupita’s performance in 12 years a slave trumps Jennifer in american hustle, 12 years a slave trumps american hustle in general and in my opinion 12 years a slave is the best fillm of 2013.
