American Hustle seems to be a top contender for the Oscars this season. Here're some solid reasons why.
Because Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence from Silver Linings meets Oscar nominee Amy Adams from The Fighter in this scene.
Because the kookiness quotient seems pretty damn high.
Because Christian Bale looks like this and pulls it off.
Because she can do both The Fighter and American Hustle convincingly.
Because Amy Adams isn't just another skimpily clad model.
Because the men are beyond recognition while the ladies are oh so fine.
Con-men caper American Hustle and space thriller Gravity led Oscar nominees on Thursday with 10 nominations each, including Best Picture, in the race for the world's top film prize.
Slavery drama 12 Years a Slave received nine nominations, including in the Best Picture category.
