Jennifer Lawrence Wins Best Actress Oscar, Falls on Stage

Jennifer Lawrence was the big winner in the Best Actress category at the 2013 Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (February 24) in Hollywood.

    Ahh but what a vegetable. Even comatose Riva ran rings around untrained but very enthusastic Lawrence.

  • Camden

    You know who tried to help her when she fell?, Hugh Jackman…always the gentlemen.

    Love Hugh!
    Love Jennifer!

  • Toni

    Congrats Jennifer! I’m sooo happy she won!

    Shame about the fall, but it means nothing, she got an oscar!

  • Jesse

    @Lou:
    Hey, your in America, king of promotional crap!

  • Rue

    @Lou: Killjoy.

  • kris

    @Lou: Couldn’t agree more! She is an ok actress. Average. But NOT for an Oscar….It seems that they start losing their worth!

  • Morgan

    Jennifer is AMAZING.

    She was absolutely lovely, even after tripping on the stairs. She was not crying buckets like many of her predecessors (Halle Berry and Gwyneth Paltrow) and was still able to be funny and adorable.

    Gorgeous actress and wonderfully human.

    DESERVED IT 100%.

  • NoNo

    No she doesn’t. You shouldn’t give an actress an Oscar, just because she reminds of that really sweet girl who works at Starbucks.

  • Daphne

    @Susan:

    Correct. He is the real winner :))

  • Jojo

    Her fall is so classy tho !!! I love her ;)

  • Juicy Lucy

    Now I know that Harvey Weinstein bribed and bullyed a win for Jennifer. I think she stumbled over her ego. She was clearly upset that she lost the BAFTA because Weinstein has no influence overseas. Her performance was good but not the type of performance that is Oscar worthy. Heck, Reese Witherspoon could have played Tiffany in her sleep. She’s starting to become someone who feels they are entitled to win every award that comes her way. Yes, she’s successful due to the Hunger Games and X Men franchise but the real test of her ability to draw an audience will come with the release of Selena. She, not Bradley will be the draw and if the film is not a success, she will get the blame.

  • JustJoanie

    I adore this girl so much. Falls yet still remains classy and beautiful. I would have waited for Hugh to put his arms around me and help me up though. ~heh~ Congrats to Jen!!!

  • Human

    Why do we need to focus on her fall, It just shows us she too is a human just like you and I.

  • Blume

    @Lou:
    Greetings
    I agree with you.
    Her role was so simple.
    I think she have something of the character, so was no so difficult to act. Jennifer did a simple role, anyone can do something close to that.
    Jennifer have to grow, she is very young. I a near future, she will learn how to act better.
    Emmanuelle Riva deserved to win, because Hiroshima mon amoure( a beautiful classic love story), Amoure and others films she did in her long carrer. She is a veteran and an amazing actress comparing to Jennifer. In 1998 the academy did the same thing to Gwyneth Paltrow, a bad actress that represents always herself. Is like giving pearls to pigs. The problem is the marketing they give to much and not the most important the acting. I am glad i am european, the criteria here is eclectic in films and we have more different films that are selected, and also the actress and actors in my opinion act better and are humble people. The films here are about everything and deep. If you have noticed, Cannes, Berlin, Venece and others films festivals you see good films and good acting and with small budget and eclectic types of films. I am not saying that i don´t like films from United states of america, but you notice a big difference. I like some films from USA, but nowadays i prefer the classics.
    Excuse me if i was to critic, but this is my opinion.
    Regards

    Wow what a fail… congratulations for your oscar!!!

  • http://yahoo seinna

    congrats for the oscar….. Jen!! you rock girl !! and you looked absolutely stunning

  • saruwan

    I believe Jessica Chastain deserves the Oscar more … Anyway, CONGRATS JEN LAW !!!

  • Nina

    She also campaigned very hard for that Oscar, has to be said. I know the hungergames fangirls won’t like anyone who points that out but it’s pretty obvious. Don’t mind her whatsoever, think she’s an ok actress. But had she not been American and backed up by mr Harvey Weinstein, she wouldn’t have won.
    Should have been Emmanuelle Riva but Oscar lived it’s “it-girl” year. Sadly.
    But grats.

  • ana

    She’s not cute or adorable, she’s rude and arrogant. But yeah little girls will find her so normal and down to earth.

  • Laydmay

    I don’t know how old she is, but it looks like she did know? to lift up the front of her dress while walking up the stairs.

  • Laydmay

    * she did not know to lift up the front of her dress….

  • Wow

    [b]wow[/b]

  • ms grey

    so undeserved. all these awards shows where the industry tries to justify itself but awarding nothings with a statue and say it is prestige.

  • Helen

    The fall is staged

  • Penelope

    I like Jen’s personality and I like the Hunger Games series. So I am not a Jen hater by any means. But I am sorry to say her acting in SLP was not that great and the other actresses in her category deserved it more. I was underwhelmed by her performance and blown away by Riva’s performance and Watts’ performance. Oscars have become disappointing to me…its who is POPULAR not who ACTED the best

  • karl

    cant even walk up some stairs… and this is what we call acting?

  • Devon

    @Penelope: Most popular award went to her.
    I put her acting at the same level as Kristen Stewert.
    I don’t get why people love to hate on Kristen but really? She just seems moody that all and made a terrible mistake. I think she is quite pretty actaully.
    Jennifer is as immature as her. Did you hear about her throwing the middle finger in the press room?
    Oscar have become a joke.

  • why?

    i saw SLP also, jennifer wasnt really great there, i dont understand why she won. i guess weinstein is really powerful. its so unfair because naomi was much better in the impossible.

  • anna

    I’m so happy she won ))

  • Gabi

    as much as i LOVE her, she didnt deserve it. silver linings playbook is so overrated!

  • Meg

    I’ve never seen anyone as physically and verbally clumsy as this clown. She says and does such stupid things, her skirt falls down, and she can’t walk up the steps. She’s a joke, and her acting is way overrated.

  • Oh dear….

    She’s seems like a lovely girl but she didn’t deserve to win over Jessica & Naomi. Her dress looked awful, liked scrunched up toilet paper. Of all the dresses she could have picked she chose one that looked so uncomfortable and least flattering on her.

  • Mmmm…

    I think she’s popular because girls don’t feel jealous of her, she’s attractive but not beautiful and has an average figure, the girl next door type.

  • Penelope

    @Mmmmm
    I disagree with you there. I think she is beautiful and lovely (but still didnt deserve this award)

  • http://google Popplewell Halo

    I trusted her, I knew that Jennifer was going to win the Oscar.
    She deserves it because she is a great actress, has won the Oscar but also to the most important piece won (my heart)
    I am a 12 year old girl but I love her as a sister.
    Poor thing when he went to collect the prize he broke the dress and when he went to collect his Oscar tripped over her dress, it could happen to anyone.
    STILL LOVE JENNIFER LAWRENCE.
    I LOVE YOU JENNIFER LAWRENCE

  • FCOL

    She isn’t your sister and you’re 12. Try reading some proper books by writers such as Dickens, instead of mediocre capers like the Hunger Games. Then you might be bright enough – even at your young age – to grasp why JL should never have won an Oscar for SLP. God, kids today are so annoying.

  • Michelle

    She’s only 22 and she doesn’t even look so young…and she didn’t deserved the award at all…but that’s the strategy in the industry : the cute bimbo before great talent! I guess that’s life too…

  • Anca Ilisei

  • Mirabelle

    Sorry, but Jennifer did not deserve this Oscar. She’s maybe a good actress, but not that good. And she’s so young to get it!

  • FCOL

    It was Riva’s 86th birthday on the night of the ceremony, and she’d flown over from Paris, despite ill health, to attend the event. And JL got the gong. God Weinstein is a sh*t. I feel like calling him worse.

  • Lauren

    @Mirabelle: Obviously, the Academy, the Foreign Press Association, and the Screen Actors Guild all thought she deserved awards. Stay mad.

  • Avigna

    falling down while getting an oscar would be the best day for most of us. Congrats J. Law, excellent dress to receive an oscar on. Great and genuine acceptance speech. More of J.Law please : )

  • Jokergurl

    I’m glad she won, she looked lovely, I just loved her dress and I like her attitude she seems to take it all in stride even though she tripped; she’s refreshing and she just seems cool. I can see her as another kind of Meryl Streep, she’s quite versatile. I also loved that Anne Hathaway won, but I wanted Hugh Jackman to win although Daniel Day Lewis is always good in whatever he does. I don’t agree with best director choice, Ang Lee although he’s good he’s not as amazing as Steven Spielberg. I found it tacky that the White House was involved in this, they seem to pop up everywhere and it’s getting lame.

    All that fashion fuss on the #oscars #red carpet. So comfortable with my red jumper from my mum’s haute couture.

  • Gottasay

    As much as I like Jennifer Lawrence, she is not a good actress. She should not have won an Oscar. In fact, she should not have been nominated for an AA. There were far more deserving actresses. From what I have seen of her work she has hardly any range at all. She essentially plays the same character: a likeable, bright, funny, independent, attractive, young woman – herself. She is not witty, she is funny, there is a difference. She is most definitely not old beyond her years – unless, of course, she’s actually 15. Someone like Andrea Riseborough is a good actress. You would not recognise her in many of the TV dramas and films she has been in, because she has the ability to become someone who seems very different from herself. That is the old fashion way of acting. If you notice that’s what DDL does a lot. He would be even better at it if he wasn’t so famous.
