Her characters perfume embodies everything we love about American Hustle - the sweet smell of success with just a hint of trash. Will Win Lupita Nyongo While Lawrence was the early favorite with her Golden Globe win, Nyongo has come on strong down the stretch, winning the SAG and BFCA awards for best supporting actress.
