Easily the most talked about moment of the night at the 2013 Oscars; Jennifer Lawrence took home the award for Best Actress for her role opposite Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook. That’s amazing as it is but all anyone seems to be talking about is her fall as she walked up the stairs to accept the trophy. She played it off like a champ, face palmed and got herself up again as three gorgeous men (Bradley Cooper, Hugh Jackman, and Jean Dujardin) rushed to her aid. Maybe she should have fainted.
Definitely my pick out of the category, I’m glad she took home the award last night. While I think Bradley Cooper was the best in the movie, the competition in his category was too fierce this year. All in all, I’m glad the movie is getting the recognition it deserves.
Did we mention how hilarious she is in her press conference afterwards? “Sorry. I took a shot before this.”
