Two new TV spots have dropped for Joy, giving us quick and energetic looks at the film that could be circling some big nominations come awards season.
Jennifer Lawrence and director David O. Russell appear to be a match made in cinematic heaven. Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle were both very well received, and the buzz for their latest picture is growing after rave reactions from early screenings. Check some of them out underneath the two new promos.
While the embargo for official reviews is yet to be lifted, Twitter has seen some pretty positive responses:

Could we see Jennifer Lawrence take home her second Oscar? We’ll be able to judge that possibility when Joy, also starring Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen, hits the U.S. on December 25 and Australia on December 26.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.
