A few years ago, the name Jennifer Lawrence meant nothing to filmgoers. After being introduced to us in the forgettable The Burning Plain, she had a phenomenal breakthrough with the award winning Winter’s Bone which garnered her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. Fast forward two years and she’s the star of two big budget franchises and might just be on her way to winning Best Actress for her brilliant work in Silver Linings Playbook. J.Law has captured the hearts of people all over the world with her sincere, charming, no-filter kind of personality and of course a talent beyond her young age. However even more remarkable is how she’s so effortlessly mastered the art of red carpet looks. Her evolution can be determined in how she went from looking like a girl next door with diamonds, to how now she’s the face of a legendary fashion house. Let’s take a look at J.Law’s wonderful fashion evolution in five looks.

The answer to the title question may seem simple: obviously Jim Carrey is a comedian. Comedians don’t win Oscars.
While anyone familiar with Carrey’s post Ace Ventura career knows the former isn’t true—nor should the latter be— they also know that Jim Carrey has delivered at least five—yes, FIVE—performances truly deserving of Oscar consideration, but how many nominations does he deserve out of that lot? Ben Travers hashes it out:
The 2012 awards season may not be over yet, but if like me, you’re already fed up with all the Argo nonsense, it’s a perfect time to take a look at the movies of 2013. I originally saw Yossi last year but was pleased to realize that it hadn’t been released in the United States, therefore making it eligible for awards consideration this year. The movie was released a few weeks ago in NYC and is currently playing in a couple of arthouses. If you haven’t seen it, run to the theater. Movies released early during the year are usually forgotten by the time all the Oscar juggernauts arrive…
Last year’s roster of foreign language film submissions was so rich, that you can argue that even if the lineup is one of the greatest the category has seen in years (and no embarrassing mention to The Intouchables!) there were still many movies that could’ve fit among the final nominees. Other than Amour the other nominees could’ve easily been replaced by any of these:
Though 2012 may not have been the strongest or most groundbreaking year for movies—very good movies aplenty, sure, but nothing particularly mind-blowing—the 2013 Academy Awards ceremony has the potential to be the most memorable in recent years. And not because Seth McFarlane probably won’t be able to resist doing his Stewie voice on the Oscar stage (#LOLZ, #SMH, #etc.). Rather, for the first time in quite a while, there simply don’t appear to be too many shoo-ins.
Jessica Chastain seemed undefeatable just a month ago, but now Jennifer Lawrence appears to be surpassing her as the favorite as Silver Linings Playbook keeps expanding its audience and Zero Dark Thirty continues to fade in the wake of controversy and Kathryn Bigelow’s directorial snub. Anne Hathaway’s recent wide-eyed theater-kid shtick at every award ceremony may have begin to backfire and all those moments of bowing down to worship at the altar of Sally Field may actually work in Field’s favor. Daniel Day-Lewis’ Lincoln seems the easy pick—but is it too easy? Could Bradley Cooper emerge victorious alongside costar Lawrence? It’s pretty clear that Robert DeNiro’s taking home the gold man for his turn in Playbook, and so maybe there’ll be a strange sweep that extends to Best Picture and Best Director for David O. Russell?
