ACTRESS
WILL WIN: Lawrence. Her depressed-widow character is lovable, unpredictable (in a good way) and complex, even if Lawrence, a still- cherubic 22, looks too young for the role. Lawrence also has been delightful during appearances at podiums and in magazines during the run-up to the Oscars. She is fresh and uncensored – qualities that leave a good impression in Oscar voters' minds.
