Jennifer Lawrence is Best Actress – But She Forgot To Thank Her Director and Producer!

It’s kind of an unwritten rule: when you win an Oscar, you thank all the people who helped you ‘make it’, even though they’re secretly thanking you for getting the film so much extra publicity.

So when Jennifer Lawrence trips up, wishes her fellow nominee Emanualle Riva a happy birthday and generally looks shocked to be anywhere near the golden statuette, but forgets to thank David O Russell and Harvey Weinstein, some post-Oscars love was certainly required. She’ll be hoping her statement to Entertainment Weekly can get her back into Hollywood’s good-books. "In the whirlwind of last night, I was remiss to thank two incredibly important people to this film and in my life," she said in the statement. She then thanked Russell for "the most incredible experience of my life" and "for your genius, for your guidance, for teaching me things about myself and nurturing me to be a better actor." She also thanked Weinstein for supporting the film "from early days" and for his "passion and unyielding support [which] gave this film the opportunity to thrive and touch so many people."

This was Lawrence’s first Oscar, and, judging by her ever-growing popularity, it won’t be her last. "Thank you to both. I will never be able to forgive myself for such a brain fart but I hope that you both can," she added. "Obviously it was not on purpose, I couldn't remember what I had already said and my mind went completely blank–your brain does funny things during the most overwhelming moment of your life!"
