Thanks to The Hunger Games she's in one of the most bankable film franchises in Hollywood, she's only 22 years old and she's already been nominated for two Oscars, and yes, she gets to make out with Bradley Cooper and walk away with the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her role in Silver Linings Playbook. Whew!
And that's not all! Not only did Jennifer Lawrence wow on the red carpet in this persimmon-colored Dior Haute Couture gown, but her acceptance speech was hands down the best one this evening.
When she took the stage, Jen quipped, “Oh, what does it say, 'I beat Meryl [Streep, a fellow nominee]?' Jokes aside I am so honored to be a part of this. David, thank you for believing in me and giving me a chance. There’s a reason why so many actors have thanked you from this stage. You are simply the best. Bradley, you’re incredible, and you made me better every single day. Harvey, thank you for killing whoever you had to kill to get me up here today. And the entire cast of this movie, you guys are the heartbeat of this film and it wouldn’t be the same without you guys. Because then there wouldn’t be a cast. And I want to thank my family. Mom, people said you were crazy to believe in me, and you did it anyway. Dad, you taught me to laugh and that has been my salvation through all of this. I want to thank my brothers, Ben and Blaine, I wouldn’t be who I am today without you being mean to me and then really supportive and loving constantly. CAA, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, IDPR, thank you.”
However, one person in Hollywood who wasn't a fan of Jen's speech was none other than Lindsay Lohan, who tweeted, "Words cannot express how much I LOVE Kristen Wiig. And no1 should ever mess with a legend, such as Meryl Streep." Um ... I guess the same could be said of Elizabeth Taylor, so has anyone mentioned that to Lilo? Or are we all going to pretend that Liz & Dick never happened?
