Over the next 24 hours, the Oscars will be covered from every angle. The fashion (Helen Hunt paired a cheap dress with nearly a million in jewels! She looked great btw). The host (Did Seth MacFarlane really make that awful joke about Salma Hayek, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz? Leave them alone). The winners (Daniel Day-Lewis makes history. Argo wins Best Picture and Ang Lee takes Best Director). The pool (Did you beat your friends this year?). Shirley Bassey (’nuff said). I will leave that fodder to others.
But, I have two words for my Oscar experience: Jennifer Lawrence. She stole our hearts in Winter’s Bone a couple years ago and was bad ass in The Hunger Games this year. But, the young actress took home Oscar for her brilliant portrayal of a cracked up widow falling in love in Silver Linings Playbook. Before she grabbed the statuette tonight, she’d already made headlines for cursing on the red carpet and for her princess gown (pictured below). Said gown, though, caused a little issue as she walked up the stairs to receive her well deserved award (her nuanced turn was the heart and soul of David O. Russell’s film). Jennifer’s near face plant will go down in the annals of Oscar lore, just like Roberto Benigni climbing on the backs of chairs when he took home the Best Actor Oscar for Life Is Beautiful.
And, how did Jennifer respond to her unfortunate fall? She made light of it in her acceptance speech, and in the press room, where she was asked what went through her mind when she fell. Her response, “A bad word that I can’t say that starts with F.” Ms. Lawrence is an absolute scene-stealer on screen and off. And, I’m not the only charmed by her. Congrats on your win, and here’s to many more.
