Amanda Seyfried in line for an Oscar? “Les Miserables”

I was first introduced to the comedic likes of Seyfried in Mark Waters’ Mean Girls (2004) as the lovable Karen, the simple-minded teenager with an “innate” sense that it’s raining. In a film that featured the talents of Tina Fey, Rachel McAdams, and what was left of Lindsay Lohan, Seyfried is a memorable cause.

Seyfried followed her role with a small part in Rodrigo Garcia’s Nine Lives and a few other notable TV appearances and small films. Her first starring role would come in the critically pulverized Mamma Mia! (2008) opposite Academy Award Winner Meryl Streep. She would follow-up with roles in Chloe (2009), Dear John (2010), Letters to Juliet (2010), and Red Riding Hood (2011). All her films received either mixed-to-negative reviews or were ultimately forgettable.

In the role of Cosette in Hooper’s film, Seyfried exemplifies a beautiful singing voice once again in a role that some feel may have been either underdeveloped or misguided. In the film’s near finale during Valjean’s final number, a glimpse of what I like to call the “Oscar Cry”. There are a few sure-fire ways to get yourself on Oscar’s radar, and during this year-long series, I’ll be examining many of them along the way.

Awardscircucit.com: “In Line” is a series, an examination of 365 talented actors, directors, craftsman in Hollywood that may or may not be in line for an Oscar, I thought nothing better but to begin with one of the stars of Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables Amanda Seyfried.
