I get a feeling that Guy Lodge has been visiting these actress threads: http://www.hitfix.com/in-contention/...ependent-women
"Lawrence takes the criticism in stride. “I’m never going to starve myself for a part,” she tells Elle. “I don’t want little girls to be like, ‘Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner’ … I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong — not thin and underfed.” The Silver Linings Playbook star also sees a silver lining to this weighty situation — “I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumors.”
Lol, you are not the only non-anorexic actress in Hollywood.
Also, take that, Hathaway. And Portman. Lawrence is gonna snatch a lead Oscar without deglamming or damaging her health. So there.
Ang Lee - The only 2x Bafta/DGA/Oscar-Winning Director!
Meryl on Oscars: Y’see these little babies? These are my best f***ing friends
and they never let me down. Try to get ‘em away from me and I’ll eat you alive.

And Wallis is definitely not winning INOCA best actress; I'm not even sure she'll be nominated. Plenty of ADers dislike her performance/film.
There's nothing to say all of them don't get in. Remember last year we had 7 nominees for best actress.
I think we need some sort of method of breaking ties. Seven nominees = mess
So continue with your discussion irrespective of things to come. Which is counter to our usual goal here but...yeah...um...
So I'm at a usually crowded art house theater on a Friday night for Smashed. It's also its first week of release in Austin.
There are 4 other people besides myself.
Summit/Lionsgate finally sent The Impossible screener to AMPAS (received today), seems like a good strategy to send it earlier than the other actress contenders (only Wallis film was sent first) films; perhaps this could help Watts? I've also heard from people that the film has been very well received at screenings with crying throughout the film and applause at the end, it'll likely play well with AMPAS.
and in case anyone is interested the other screeners summit/lionsgate sent were: Hunger Games and Perks of Being a Wallflower though I doubt they'll get anything major.
Jen is going the Winslet campaign strategy Not like she needs it.
