Highlights: 2012's Best Line Delivery...


...is "Calm down, crazy!" by Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook.

At various stages, I'd opted for either of the runners-up you see below, but in the end J.Law wins out, not just because her delivery is ace, but also because believe that line will become the most quotable one uttered in any film this year. Attempt to capture Lawrence's pitch-perfect cadence at your own peril though!

Runners-up
"The law says you can not touch, but I think I see a lotta lawbreakers up in this house tonight." by Matthew McConaughey in Magic Mike
"You're dangling my vagina out there like it's bait." by Aubrey Plaza in Safety Not Guaranteed

  1. I love this award. Skillful line readings can be such beautiful things. And I love that line reading too. Although I think my favorite Lawrence line reading in said film was "That sounds like bullshit."
