MTV’s Best Female Performance Award Goes to Jennifer Lawrence

In a hotly contested race to win the Best Female Performance, Jennifer Lawrence surprised the audience on Sunday 13th after emerging the best of all. This happened during MTV Awards where Jennifer won for taking a role in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Nobody could have expected Lawrence to come first since there were several actresses in the category. If you thought that is enough, it will be to your surprise to note that The Hunger Games shined on Sunday. Jennifer Lawrence’s co-star Josh Hutcherson emerged to be the top male performer alongside the film winning movie of the year category.

Looking at the list of contestants in the category that Jennifer Lawrence emerged the winner; the slot attracted four other female actresses. This include; Gravity’s Sandra Bullock, Lupita Nyong’o for 12 Years of Slave, American Hustle’s Amy Adams and Jennifer Aniston for We’re the Millers. It will be remembered that Nyong’o had trounced Jennifer Lawrence in other previous awards and now is Jennifer’s time to shine. From this list, it is clear that nobody could have predicted the winner. Now, the Kentucky native sees more bright opportunities in months to come since there is one project in the pipeline.

According to the project director, it is going to be a remake of what was acted in 1955. The movie classic is titled East of Eden and it was adapted from 1952’s John Steinbeck novel bearing the same name. The 23-year-old Kentucky native is said to take up a role in James Dean and Julie Harris’ original starred film. Tracking Jennifer’s career in The Hunger Games, it was boosted and launched by Gary Ross. Ross is one of the best known writer-directors where he is said to team up with Lawrence for yet another time in the East of Eden project.

As per the current trend in Hollywood, films are usually split into two parts and East of Eden seeks to take a similar dimension. Discussions concerning shooting of the film are ongoing although breaking it into two halves seems to take center-stage. The two parts are targeting different generations and that what the stakeholders are talking about as of now. Various people are assigned different roles to play in making film development a success. For instance, pictures are taken good care of by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard of Imagine Entertainment. Starting date of the film will be determined by how busy the star is.

During the first installment of Hunger Games, Gary Ross did take the director’s seat but later on surrendered to another director to continue with the second installment. There wasn’t much time allotted to Ross between the two films hence the main reason of not taking up the second installment of Hunger Games. Aspect of time is very crucial whenever writing and preparing a script for any film. Ross is determined to make East of Eden one of the best movies in the industry.

Is Nicholas Hoult Cheating on Jennifer Lawrence?


I thought that perhaps since Nicholas Hoult was less attractive and famous than his girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence that he would have the good sense to, you know, value her and never get a wandering eye. Le sigh, darlings. That is unfortunately not true. One of my little spies spotted Nick flirting up a storm with Riley Keough, who is Elvis’ granddaughter and a former fling of Robert Pattinson (who just happens to be crushing on J.Law, interesting). She is also a person with a ...
