Jennifer Lawrence, ‘Playbook’ Accumulate Honors in Race To Award Season
Jennifer Lawrence’s performance in Silver Linings Playbook is making ripples through Hollywood and the buzz she’s getting is growing stronger each day as we head toward awards season. The film recently received five nominations to the Independent Spirit Awards, sweeping through all the major categories, including a nom for Jennifer in the Best Female Lead category for her role as Tiffany.
The Santa Barbara International Film Festival also announced this Monday that they will be honoring Jennifer with their Outstanding Performer of the Year award, for her work in both Silver Linings Playbook and The Hunger Games:
“Ms. Lawrence impressed us earlier this year in The Hunger Games, but has now left us moonstruck with her career-defining performance in Silver Linings Playbook – recalling classic turns by Lombard, Stanwyck and Colbert,” SBIFF executive director Roger Durling said in a statement. “Naming her our Outstanding Performer of the Year is an understatement.”
We’re very happy to see our talented leading lady getting the recognition she deserves. Keeping our fingers crossed for that Oscar nom!
