In terms of the actresses who lit up the silver screen, Jennifer Lawrence was on fire reprising Katniss Everdeen for the 'Hunger Games' sequel, 'Catching Fire,' while some critics hailed Sandra Bullock's turn in Alfonso Cuaron's 'Gravity' and Cate Blachett's role in Woody Allen's 'Blue Jasmine' as career-high performances. Elsewhere, Amy Adams had another stellar year with her leading role in David O. Russell's 'American Hustle,' Scarlett Johansson proved her voiceover skills as Joaquin Phoenix's A.I. girlfriend in 'Her,' and up-in-coming Brie Larson had a breakthrough performance in the indie film 'Short Term 12.'
