Best Actress Academy Award Nominees: Jennifer Lawrence

By SMW Staff

This Sunday, five women will get a shot of Oscar gold. They are all more than ready for their close-ups, as you’ll see from their profiles, here:

If Jennifer Lawrence wins the Oscar for Best Actress because of her starring role in Winter’s Bone, she’ll have to wait until August to order a drink. That’s when this brilliant young actress will turn 21.

in the gut-wrenching, but totally compelling Oscar nominated film, Winter’s Bone, Lawrence is pitch perfect as a terrified girl and courageous woman all rolled into one.

Her character, Ree Dolly, a poor child of the Ozarks, has to do battle with some of the most loathsome individuals ever assembled in one film.

In a totally different world, Winter’s Bone is the Precious of 2010.
