    American Hustle seems to be a top contender for the Oscars this season. Here're some solid reasons why.

  • Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams in American Hustle

    Because Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence from Silver Linings meets Oscar nominee Amy Adams from The Fighter in this scene.

  • American Hustle still

    Because the kookiness quotient seems pretty damn high.

  • Christian Bale in American Hustle

    Because Christian Bale looks like this and pulls it off.

  • Amy Adams in American Hustle

    Because she can do both The Fighter and American Hustle convincingly.

  • Amy Adams, American Hustle

    Because Amy Adams isn't just another skimpily clad model.

  • American Hustle

    Because the men are beyond recognition while the ladies are oh so fine.
