Jennifer Lawrence has been voted the AP's Entertainer of the Year.

The annual survey of its broadcast and newspaper members in addition to subscribers voted on who they would consider was Entertainer of the Year. 70 editors and media contributors voted for who they considered to be the greatest influence on entertainment and culture in 2013.

Lawrence was up against Miley Cyrus and won by just one solitary vote, according to reports in USA Today. Cyrus received 14 votes, just one more than Netflix which was also nominated. Critically acclaimed drama series Breaking Bad also received 10 votes.

The award appears to have rounded off a perfect year for Lawrence who won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in The Silver Linings Playbook. The actress has continued to garner praise for starring in The Hunger Games, the second part of which was released in November. 

Reviews of the hit franchise were dominated by comments about Lawrence's performance, which was described as being filled with "strength and beauty." Whilst others felt she possessed "a calm sincerity and steely determinism." 

In a similar vein, her demeanour off screen has also earned her high praise. As USA Today reports, a member of the voting panel, Kristi Runyan of the News Herald Newspapers, felt "It's refreshing to see a young woman not squandering her talent and success by succumbing to the temptations many do in Hollywood and who actively speaks about the ridiculous behaviour of some of her peers."

Other entertainers who have won the award in the past include Betty White, Taylor Swift, Tina Fey and Lady Gaga. 

Congratulations to Jennifer Lawrence on her award!
