With the Indie Spirit Award nominations just announced, prognosticators are now looking into their crystal ball anew, rethinking their Oscar predictions. But it pays to remember to that a) the Spirit Awards have a budget cutoff that renders lots of movies ineligible and b) obviously "American Hustle" and "The Wolf Of Wall Street" are two major movies that could alter the awards landscape in a big way. And one actress already being talked about in hushed tones for another Oscar statue is Jennifer Lawrence.

American Hustle

With the Indie Spirit Award nominations just announced, prognosticators are now looking into their crystal ball anew, rethinking their Oscar predictions. But it pays to remember to that a) the Spirit Awards have a budget cutoff that renders lots of movies ineligible and b) obviously "American Hustle" and "The Wolf Of Wall Street" are two major movies that could alter the awards landscape in a big way. And one actress already being talked about in hushed tones for another Oscar statue is Jennifer Lawrence.

Over the weekend, a SAG Nominating Committee screening brought forth praise for the actress. As The Wrap noted in their coverage, Lawrence reportedly "steals the show" as the wife of Christian Bale's conman, while Amy Adams told Variety her co-star was "fearless." And Deadline added fuel to the fire declaring Lawrence's turn as "simply dazzling... a total knockout scene-stealer throughout." Damn. And this newest TV spot provides a few more moments of Lawrence's electric-looking turn, playing what the ad describes as a "loose cannon." And all this begs the question: is she an Oscar frontrunner?

Watch below and let us know what you think. "American Hustle" opens on December 18th.
