The All-Around Actor: Jennifer Lawrence
Predecessor: Angelina Jolie
In a short amount of time, Lawrence has done something only a handful of actors can do: swing from action-packed blockbuster franchises (The Hunger Game, X-Men) to smaller dramatic projects (Winter’s Bone), all with critical acclaim. Her latest jaw-dropping performance in Silver Linings Playbook makes her a favourite to pick up some serious hardware during this year’s awards season, including a practically guaranteed spot on the Oscars’ best actress short list (if not top prize). Fans will be able to see her hilarious sense of humour (as seen in interviews) first-hand when she hosts Saturday Night Live on January 19th.
