    We at TOH! prefer to see the movie before we decide who's going to break out. Ryan saw six minutes of American Hustle, which is as much as anyone has seen thus far. Anyone who reads this site regularly knows that we burnish Jennifer Lawrence's considerable luster with regularity. See Video section on Catching Fire etc.

    Why have you guys eliminated Jennifer Lawrence out of the top photo...is it because it's Jennifer Lawrence who has received the most buzz so far from the early acreenings not to mention the trailers? I guess somebody's agent/PR person, etc., paid you twerps off, right. Well, it doesn't matter how many of you "critics"/toadies are paid off, the fact of the matter is, Kris Tapley over at InContention has already written about how everyone is telling him that it's Jennifer Lawrence who steals the show...this last minute BS is silly for those involved. CORPORATE SELLOUTS.

    It's because the original photo didn't fit our dimensions. Lawrence happened to get cut.
