After months of speculation, argument, debate, prognostication and guesswork, it's hard to believe that the Oscars are just over a week away, and yet the final hurrah for the contenders continues. "60 Minutes" recently put Steven Spielberg and "Lincoln" back in the spotlight, and now "Nightline" turns the camera to "Silver Linings Playbook."

But it's a decent look at the actress who in a few short years has put her mark on indie dramas, mainstream crowdpleasers and blockbuster franchises in equal measure. Watch below. [Awards Daily]
