As always Jennifer Lawrence is a winner. Literally and metaphorically. Literally she just won Favorite Movie Actress at the People’s Choice Awards. Metaphorically because she’s the best. After a long night of awkward jokes and stereotypical acceptance speeches, she broke the mold when she stepped up to the stage.
First of all, she truly looked shocked to have won. As someone who works on the interweb, I’m not shocked at all. People love her. A lot of people. If one billionth of the people who love Jennifer Lawrence ever loved me, I’d be thrilled. But I’m getting off topic here.
The star of Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook kicked off her speech by talking about being sweaty, and it only got better from there. While I won’t spoil it for you, I will say that you’re going to finish watching it and immediately rush to finish your application to her very best friend.
Really the only thing that would have made it better would be for her to have thrown in a few hilarious and intimate Catching Fire set stories. I know, I know, that’s asking a lot from a 30 second acceptance speech. The good news is that this is just the start of award season and I have a feeling this won’t be the last time we’ll see her stepping up to the stage. Fingers crossed!
