The girl is on a roll. First, her movie, "The Hunger Games," does exceptionally well at the box office. Then she gets awarded the Most Desirable Woman of 2013 title right out of the gate for the start of the new year. The latest in Jennifer Lawrence's triumphs now includes a win for Best Lead Actress at the Golden Globe Awards in Hollywood Sunday evening (Jan. 13).
"Thank you, Harvey [Weinstein]," she said at the gathering of Hollywood's elite at the Beverly Hilton for the 70th Golden Globe Awards, "for killing whoever you had to kill to get me up here." (The movie was distributed by The Weinstein Company.)
It's lines like that -- mock seriousness that had the room laughing -- that make Jennifer Lawrence someone much sought after for interviews and roles. She's just so likable it isn't fair.
She even thanked actress and fellow nominee Sally Field during her acceptance speech (she won the Best Lead Actress -- Motion Picture Comedy or Musical award for "Silver Linings Playbook") for inspiring her and showing her that you could go on from being a flying nun to "Norma Rae" and then to Momma Gump (the Oscar-winning "Forrest Gump").
But she was set up for her win by perhaps the funniest routine of the night when comedians Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig, both "Saturday Night Live" alums, walked onto the stage like two starstruck yokels and pretended that they watched all the movies nominated for Golden Globe awards. They seemed to inadvertently pick up on the fact that the each of the scripts of the movies in which the Lead Actress starred had a line in it where the nominee said a version of "get out of here."
Will Ferrell off-handedly referred to Lawrence as "J. Law," which got a good laugh as well. He said he thought "Silver Linings Playbook" was animated.
But Jennifer Lawrence's win was just her latest. She personally took home three awards at the 2013 People's Choice Awards on Jan. 9, including two for her role as Katniss in "The Hunger Games," and one for Favorite Movie Actress. The movie that launched her to fame won two more.
We'll see if the "Law" still holds sway at the end of January as well. "J. Law" is up for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role at the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Jan. 27. She's also up for a Best Actress award at the 85th Academy Awards on Feb. 24. Both nominations are for her role as Tiffany Maxwell in "Silver Linings Playbook."
