Jennifer Lawrence Oscar red carpetJennifer Lawrence Best Actress Oscar acceptance speech

Jennifer Lawrence's Best Actress Oscar 2013 acceptance speech: "Thank you. You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that's really embarrassing but thank you. [Twenty-two-year-old Jennifer Lawrence, whose movie career spans four years, received a standing ovation like Barbra Streisand and Shirley Bassey and Daniel Day-Lewis.] This is nuts. Thank you to the Academy and thank you to the women this year. You were so magnificent and so inspiring and not just those of you in my category. And it's been so amazing getting to know you and you've been so nice and you've made this experience unforgettable.

"And thank you to the best producing team: Bruce, Donna, Jon and to my team at CAA and IDPR. And Bradley, and our entire cast: Chris, Jacki, Bob and our crew. My family. Happy birthday, Emmanuelle. Thank you so much. Thanks."

Curiously left un-thanked was Harvey Weinstein. Directed and written by David O. Russell, besides Jennifer Lawrence Silver Linings Playbook features Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, and Jacki Weaver. The Weinstein Company-distributed comedy-drama is the first movie since Warren Beatty's Reds to have received Academy Award nominations in all four acting categories. (For the record, the Reds nominees were Warren Beatty, Diane Keaton, Jack Nicholson, and eventual winner Maureen Stapleton.)

Jennifer Lawrence's Best Actress competitors

Jennifer Lawrence's competition this year consisted of Jessica Chastain for Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty, Naomi Watts for Juan Antonio Bayona's The Impossible, Quvenzhané Wallis for Benh Zeitlin's Beasts of the Southern Wild, and Emmanuelle Riva for Michael Haneke's Amour. Riva, who won the 2013 Best Actress César Award on Friday, turned 86 years old on Sunday; hence Lawrence's "happy birthday" wishes.
