Nancy is a character that has to overcome major adversity before and after encountering the shark. It was astounding to see Blake Lively's performance because she made the audience feel her angst more and more from scene to scene. Her performance was incredible because it is extremely hard to carry a film all by yourself. Seeing her performance in The Shallows made me realize that if she is paired with the right director and has the right character and script that she can be a real Oscar contender.
