Quvenzhane Wallis of Beasts of the Southern Wild andÂ Jessica Chastain of Zero Dark 30 are taking this Oscar 2013 business really seriously, probably more seriously than us. I like that Quvenzhane WallisÂ is looking at the competition with a tough steely gaze, here, like a beast. See what I did there? Well, at least I’m as witty as Seth MacFarlane so far.
Jessica Chastain looks happy in spite of that. I think she always seems like someone who is just genuinely happy to be anyplace. She is there, and she is wearing a dress, and she is being compared to Jessica Rabbit, and maybe that is enough. AndÂ Â Quvenzhane Wallis is still young enough that she will be allowed to look openly upset if she loses.
