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.
