Before They Were Oscar Nominees [Sundays Are For Procrastinating]


The Oscars are only a week away! One of my favorite things to do before the big night is watch other movies and clips featuring the nominees from before they were nominees. It’s cool to see how far the nominees have come from starring in commercials and B-grade (sometimes C-grade) movies. With the exception of Tommy Lee Jones, all the other nominees had never received an Oscar nod before the roles featured below. Enjoy!

Amy Adams in Cruel Intentions 2

Naomi Watts in Children of the Corn IV: The Gathering

Bradley Cooper in Wet Hot American Summer

Anne Hathaway in Havoc

Jennifer Lawrence in My Super Sweet 16 Promo Commercial

Philip Seymour Hoffman in My Boyfriend’s Back

Tommy Lee Jones in Man of the House

Jessica Chastain in Jolene

Graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill. She's one of those people who loves school (or is afraid of the real world) so, she's getting her MFA in Screenwriting from the University of Southern California. If she's not writing, then she's writing. Or if she's really not writing, she's watching Netflix (aren't we all?).
