Jennifer Lawrence - Jennifer Lawrence Speechless After Oscar Nomination

JENNIFER LAWRENCE, the American actress who was yesterday (25th January 2011) nominated for an OSCAR for her role in the movie 'Winter's Bone' was left speechless by her inclusion in the Academy's list, reports Entertainment Weekly. The 20-year-old was given the surprise nod in the category of 'Best Actress' and she will do battle with the likes of NATALIE PORTMAN and NICOLE KIDMAN come the ceremony next month.
On hearing news of her nomination, Lawrence said, "I still can't really get the words out, I just. I can't... As you can see", before adding, "I'm so grateful and happy and thrilled and tired". Lawrence's co-star JOHN HAWKES was also recognised in the category of 'Best Supporting Actor' and the movie itself was named in the list of ten nominees for the prize of 'Best Picture'. Despite the film's success at last year's Sundance Film Festival, the actress says she wasn't expecting it to be recognised by the Academy, adding, "When you make a tiny movie like that on a shoestring budget in the freezing cold, this has surpassed any expectation I could've had. And that's why it just feels so good. We all made it without this in mind"
The movie, directed by DEBRA GRANIK, explores the underworld of illegal meth laboratories in the Ozark region of the United States.

I was delighted to rad that Ms Lawrence has been rendered speechless. What a pity more of her colleagues are not similarly afflicted, then the world would be spared their bloated self-regard and their vacuous and inane comments.
