    Beautiful, talented and down to earth. She has never acted like a snob….cough cough….unlike Anne….who is a snob…..disappointed she won. Totally deserved the win!

  • http://ROMNEY PRESIDENT-ELECT-ROMNEY

    Kristen Stewart was robbed

  • jenfan

    Jessica Chastain should ve won

  • Cate

    She must have felt embarassed about the fall but at least she has an Oscar at 22 to make her feel better! LOL!

  • woodly

    I am so happy for her! She made Oscar history tonight. First down syndrome person to ever be nominated and win an Oscar in its history. Congrats! [Sigh] It was so boring…I watched Mob Wives and it was fantastic. I rather see Big Ang any day than these annoying, starved, high, boring white bread so-called actresses today. Where are the stars? I think Michael Douglas and Dustin Hoffman were looking too…and then were disappointed when they looked out in the audience and saw the likes of Anne Hathaway’s rabbit teeth and Hugh Jackman’s crazy eyes and long nose. What really got me is who announced the Best Movie winner. I will never watch this red carpet and award show ever again! Hollywood has drained itself of talent and stardom and we are left with scraps.

  • Maxime

    Come on, it was not Hugh Jackman, but Jean Dujardin, last year’s winner of best actor ..

  • livvyloo

    She handled falling so well, made a quick joke then onto her speech. I love her!

  • Paulina

    @woodly: i think you’re a retarded person

  • nutcracker

    @woodly: she doesn’t have down syndrome–she has a friend that has and great for her. I looovveeee her dress too! :) she looked simple, sweet and complimentary. I think she’s great. I really liked Emanuelle too. :)

  • woodly

    @Paulina: thinking and knowing are two different things!

  • woodly

    @nutcracker: really? she doesn’t have down syndrome? ugh, omg, this is news to me! okay…how about simple minded? does that work for you? Like Keenan Ivory Wayans said, the demand for talent in comedy [and Hollywood] is greater than the supply available! She wins for what? And that buck tooth white mouse won! For what? Hollywood is so white washed, boring, talentless, and pathetic that I appreciate old Hollywood more and more! At least they had talent and gorgeous looks! I rather look at Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor any day before I look at the scraggly “thangs” on the red carpet.

  • Sarah

    She didn’t deserve it, but it would be even worst if Jessica Famewh_ore Chasfake had won, she is terrible in American Revenge for 9/11 aka ZDT, she only got a nomination because of the controversial around the movie, nothing else.
    Emmanuelle Riva is the only actress who deserved this Oscar, none of the other nominees deserved! but lobby is bigger than talent in Hollywood, right Harvey Weinstein?

  • dont hit i’m belgium

    i guess she has many double stunt if she just can’t walk without to fall

  • andtheawardgoes2

    Don’t worry Jennifer, you are already a major favorite of everyone’s because you don’t give us that Hollywood BS, you act real and don’t take things too seriously. If anything, that fall made us all realize how wonderfully human you are.

  • freya

    LOL Excited much

  • freya

    So the award giving bodies are now Predictable . Why watch the show when you know whose going to win.

  • ann

    I’m so glad she fell. Can’t stand her!

  • well

    i might be a fan of hers but i don’t think she is the best actor TBQH..

  • Paulina

    @woodly: well now i know you are a retarded person

  • o

    i just dont get the excitment on tumblr (about her)..
    she falls on the steps.. so? how is that unique.. i just dont get it =/

    i know she’s trying to relate to the ‘average’ girl but im just not buying it

    i miss the old days.. you know like 5 yrs ago when every actress hated each other.. jlo was going out with some dude and married to another.. angelina was making out with billy bob and her brother with a blood vile around her neck.. at least that sh&t was real.. the oscars now are just smoke and mirrors

  • iloveukatniss

    katniss! u deserve it! I’m looking forward for Catching Fire. :)

  • NoNo

    She didn’t deserve to win an Oscar this year. Anyone who knows anything about acting would say the same thing. She was good in SLP, but not that good. There were far better performances. I feel embarrassed for her, because if she still has one iota of self awareness she will know that award should have gone to the French actress, with over fifty years in the business my god has she earned it. Shame on the Academy. I know how quite a few members vote, they are extremely bias and lazy. Once again shame on the Academy.

  • NoNo

    I am really beginning to loathe Harvey Weinstein. JL only got the award because of him. Riva should have walked it. I like JL, she has great potential, but Riva is the finished article. Weinstein such an ungracious greedy git.

  • Paula

    @NoNo:

    I ddin’t like Amour. for Riva to win when she spent half in bed as a vegetable… no.

  • Anais

    Sorry but it was Jean Dujardin (french actor), not Hugh Jackman!
