Jennifer Lawrence Will Own 2014 Following Golden Globes Win - Preview

The internet has been going a bit crazy over Jennifer Lawrence lately (as in the past two years) and with good reason. Besides literally winning all of the awards, including a Golden Globe for American Hustle this past Sunday, JLaw’s starring roles in two blockbuster franchises and her occasional resemblance to a lost puppy on the red carpet make for a perfect storm of media appearances.

Did someone say "Oscar?" Oh right, it was everyone.

In short, everybody loved Jennifer in 2013. It’s likely to stay that way this year, with Lawrence starring in three whole movies to be released by the end of 2014. Chances are we’ll be reading about JLaw quite a lot until the end of February and awards season. Oscar nominations will be announced on January 16 and most online commenters are predicting at least a nod for Best Supporting Actress, since the Golden Globes are generally a good indication of Oscar trends.

Awards season will be followed by a few months of Jennifer Lawrence radio silence, since her next movie – X-Men: Days of Future Past – won’t come out until the end of May. That is, of course, unless you count the thousands of gifs, pictures, interviews and news about more adorable Lawrence incidents, which are bound to flood the airwaves in between actual news.

Lawrence just casually won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress. NBD.

This year will see Lawrence follow the established pattern of blockbuster, award bait, blockbuster and star in the Susanne Bier drama Serena. Lawrence plays the title role of Serena Pemberton, the childless wife of a Southern timber magnate. You should probably start betting on the its Oscar nod soon.

Time for some Oscar predictions.

Then, in November, it’ll be time for the big one. You know the one we’re talking about. Teenage girl, really good archer, likes to take down corrupt dictatorship and look sulky on camera? Lawrence will reprise her role as Katniss Everdeen in Mockingjay Part 1, due to be out on November 21.

With Catching Fire having been a surprising hit with the critics, as well as a commercial success (it grossed a domestic total of $409 million and as of January, the film topped the record set by Iron Man 3) there is practically no way for Mockingjay to bomb at the box office. Although there is still everything to lose in terms of critical reception, it's a pretty safe bet that the success train will just keep on going.

Jennifer Lawrence, American Hustle Press Conference
With three films in the pipeline this year, Lawrence has never been more sought after.

If 2013 was the year of Jennifer Lawrence, then 2014 might just see her become President of the Internet – democratically elected, of course.
