    Her performance was decent, but I don’t think she deserved to win the Oscar. Again, I feel the Oscar committee got carried away with Lupita and probably felt that if Lupita and 12 Years a Slave were not awarded Oscars there would be some controversy with racial overtones aimed at the Oscar committee. I have seen all of the nominated movies and I feel that 12 Years a Slave could have been written in a more powerful way to demonstrate the plight of Soloman Northup. I do not feel it deserved Best Picture. Lastly, Lupita had one powerful scene, which was an obvious one. I don’t anticipate her breaking out in other future roles. She had her moment. Time will tell.

  • honestly

    @leilagirl: That”s okay. That’s just your opinion. Halle Berry won an Oscar also, and it was mostly because of her wild sex scenes with Billy Bob Thornton. Many people hated that she did those scenes, but it got her an Oscar. I loved Tom Hanks’ movie, but most of his great acting was toward the end of the film. Those last emotional minutes iis what really made his performance spectacular. Seriously, people should just be very happy for Lupita. J. Lawrence is young and she still has plenty of great opportunities ahead of her. So does Adams, I think.

  • and also…

    @leilagirl: Just because Lupita didn’t dominate the entire movie with a lot of scenes is not her fault. That’s the role they gave her and she took it. The fact is, Lupita is an actress. She CAN act. She studied acting. I believe the Academy really appreciates that. I sure would. I’m sure she is versatile, but will Hollyweird give her the opportunity to prove it? Unfortunately, I doubt it.

  • Really?

    @Christopher Teoh: so you dislike her because she tripped over a dress twice ? Seriously grow up man. Why do people always think they have to bash one person just to praise another. This always happens everytime a new actress comes out people have to say the old one is overrated and talentless. Instead of just realizing that both women can be talented at the same time and if we support one another. Women can be more powerful in the industry. But nope we must spread hate
