Awards Spotlight: How Good Was Brie Larson’s Year? She Beat Cate Blanchett at Her Own Game

This awards season Brie Larson did the unthinkable – she beat Cate
Blanchett. Blanchett, considered by nearly every pundit as the
frontrunner for every Best Actress award under the sun for her
performance in “Blue Jasmine,” lost to “Short Term 12″‘s Larson at this
year’s Gothams Award. If there was anyone more shocked than everyone in
attendance, it was Larson herself who appeared most surprised. “I was
not expecting this,” she said in breathlessly accepting the award.

The win cemented a fact that anyone familiar with the actress has known
full well for months know: that this has been a banner year for the
actress.
