Jennifer Lawrence continued her trend of awesome acceptance speeches at the 85th Academy Awards when she accepted her must-deserved Best Actress award for “Silver Linings Playbook.”
“Thank you. You guys are standing up because you feel bad that I fell but thank you,” she said, making a reference to the fact that she tripped and fell walking up the stairs to the stage. Yes, she made even that classy.
Lawrence had many people to thank for her win, but her best speech moment came when she honored the other women in film in 2012. “Thank you to the women this year. You were so magnificent and so inspiring, and not just the women in my category,” she said.
Also nominated for Best Actress were youngest-ever nominee Quvenzhane Wallis, oldest-ever nominee Emmanuelle Riva, Jessica Chastain and Naomi Watts. This is Lawrence’s second Oscar nomination for Best Actress and first win.
