It wasn’t just Jennifer Lawrence’s wins making news during 2013’s awards season.
The Silver Linings Playbook star, 22, was the subject of headlines for everything from her speeches to Sunday’s tumble at the 85th Annual Academy Awards.
Relive Lawrence’s most memorable moments here …
Lawrence kicked off awards season with an eyebrow-raising comment in her acceptance speech. After saying, “What does it say? I beat Meryl,” some people – including Lindsay Lohan, who Tweeted about it – initially thought it was a jab at Meryl Streep. Lawrence later explained the comment to David Letterman, telling him it was a quote from The First Wives Club.
“First of all, it’s Meryl Streep. You can’t offend Meryl Streep,” she said. “And then all of the sudden I hate Meryl Streep. Is that what this turned into? I don’t like Meryl Streep? As if I had my eyes on getting that girl forever and I was like, ‘Finally! I knew it would happen one day!’ ”
Lawrence’s Dior Haute Couture gown stole the show, but not just because of its beautiful style. While getting up to accept an award, the actress’s “pants fell off,” she later joked of what appeared to be a tear in the material. Lawrence, who showed off a lot of leg, made light of the incident on Piers Morgan.
Hollywood’s biggest night was memorable for Lawrence not only for walking away with the Best Actress statuette, but also for the way she received it. While getting up to accept the prestigious honor, she took a little tumble on the stairs in her Christian Dior Couture gown. After fellow nominee Hugh Jackman helped her up, she joked to the audience, “You guys are just standing up ‘cause you feel bad that I fell and that’s really embarrassing, but thank you.”
