The Best Actress/Actor Oscar Nominees and Their Types (Gifs)

Posted by Georgie on February 20, 2013

Nominated for Best Actor:

Bradley Cooper, Silver Linings Playbook.

Type: He plays perfectly likeable assholes, and he plays them masterfully. 

Joaquin Phoenix, The Master

Type: He plays crazy people who could instantly murder you for no reason and then instantly laugh maniacally about it.

Denzel Washington, Flight

Type: He plays bad-asses no one should ever attempt to f*ck with. Ever.

Type: He plays the tough yet sensitive heroes you immediately fall in love with, who also sometimes sing.

Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln

Type: Everything.  He can play anyone, anything that ever existed in the history of space and time. Including your mom if he wanted.

Nominated for Best Actress

Quvenzhané Wallis, Beasts of the Southern Wild

Type: Too soon to tell as she is a wee child, but if this gif is any indication she’s not afraid to get beastly.

Naomi Watts, The Impossible

Type: She plays beautiful yet damaged women/beautiful yet terrible-things-keep-happening-to-her women.

Emmanuelle Riva, Amour

Type: I can’t tell, I don’t speak French.  But I’m pretty sure she’s been acting since it was called “The Talkies.”

Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty

Type: She plays motherf*ckers who find places. And rock stars in horror films. And perky, lovable Southern ladies.  Ah, who am I kidding.  Jessica Chastain is probably Daniel Day-Lewis in a wig.

Jennifer Lawrence, Silver Linings Playbook


Type: She plays strong, clever bitches that stick to their guns. I want her to play my best friend in real-life.
