Jennifer Lawrence Wins Best Actress at Empire Awards (For The Hunger Games)
Jennifer Lawrence has swept the past award season with such force for her performance as Tiffany in Silver Linings Playbook that our favourite performance (you know, that one we all fell in love with this time last year) as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games went ever so slightly overlooked. But thankfully those folks and readers at Empire awarded her last night at the Jameson Empire Awards 2013. Jennifer had this to say:
Hi, Empire Awards. I’m really sorry I can’t be there with you this evening but I am honoured to have won the Jameson Empire Best Actress Award for The Hunger Games and I would like to thank the Empire readers for voting for me. I’ve loved bringing Katniss Everdeen to life and this award in particular means a lot to me as it comes from the fans that have made The Hunger Games such a success. Thanks once again to everyone at Empire and all their readers.
This is what Empire had to say:
Lawrence is perfect as Katniss. There’s very little softness about her, more a melancholy determination that good must be done even if that requires bad things.
In case you missed it, Sam Claflin was in attendance last night and spoke to Chris Hewitt before the ceremony about Finnick, Annie and the Catching Fire trailer. You can listen here. Congratulations Jennifer!
