    I want jennifer law to win not ugly Chastain!!

    • Personally I want Jessica Chastain to win out of the two because I thought she was fantastic in Zero Dark Thirty, and I think that with winning an acting award, it’s about experience, not just the one role within the one film in that year, and Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t have that much compared to Jessica Chastain. Personally I would really like for Marion Cotillard to win, I just find it less likely that she will. So this is a post of my predictions, not necessarily my preferences.
