Jennifer Lawrence (she of Hunger Games fame) won the BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actress. This is no mean accomplishment. It is a big honor and Jennifer deserves a pat on the back for showing the world what she’s got in terms of acting chops. But the odd thing is she was absent from the Baftas on Sunday. Due to a busy schedule she was forced to miss out on attending the function.
Instead, as Leonardio DiCaprio announced her name, director David O. Russell came on stage to collect the gong on her behalf. Lawrence is committed to making the movies X Men: Days of Future Past and the last in the Hunger Games trilogy.
The actress may be physically super-fit yet she flubbed when she fell while coming up the stair at an awards show last year. In the movie American Hustle she beautifully illustrates the life of a mentally disturbed housewife.
Lawrence had already told David the message she wanted broadcast from the Baftas podium. And he had the words memorized which he spoke extemporaneously at the event. She has profusely thanked her costars, scriptwriter and of course David himself. She surpassed several others such as Oprah Winfrey and Julia Roberts to win in the genre of Best Supporting Actress.
Meanwhile, the constant hard work she is currently engaged in has provoked voices of concern. The director David O. Russell has especially spoken of how they were making Jennifer work like a slave for the Hunger Games. However, he later on took back his words and expressed his apologies for the inappropriate remarks.
