Yes, this is going to be another one of those stories where Jennifer Lawrence does something that makes her wonderful, because really, there are no other Jennifer Lawrence stories. She's that great. This time, she was great during an interview about this here awards season, about her plans for the upcoming Oscars and whatnot. Are you psyched? Because you probably should be.
On hearing about winning the BAFTA award during filming for "X-Men":
“Oh, it was a big surprise. I didn’t remember that the BAFTAs were happening that day. I certainly did not think I was going to win one so I put it out of my mind,” she said. “So there I was, in the middle of being painted blue, and someone said, ‘You just won the BAFTA!’ And I said, ‘Oh, go f--- yourself!’ And then it turned out they were serious.”
On not campaigning for awards so hard this season:
“It has been a bit of a blessing to be away, and not really aware of what has been going on. It actually has been really nice.”
On her experience at the Oscars last year:
“Ha! Have you not seen my last Oscar moment? I handled myself so well. I think it’s really unfair to make a person speak in front of the entire world at a moment like that because it is just so overwhelming. It was terrifying and what I regret now is not doing what you’re supposed to, which is even having a few words, something, that you can say, or even some idea if they do call your name. Every time my mind when there, I would feel so much anxiety that I couldn’t think about it. Then when they called me, I got up on stage and said happy birthday to Emmanuelle Riva from Amour, and then I walked off without even thanking David, or Harvey Weinstein ... It looked like I was drunk. I did learn, though, not to let the dress gather in the front when you walk up the stairs.”
That's it, she's the greatest. Can you even wait to see her at the Oscars on Sunday? She's going to win, isn't she? Definitely.
