Jennifer Lawrence’s Absent-Minded Oscar Acceptance Speech
She took a big fall on her way up to accept her Best Actress trophy at the 85th Academy Awards on Sunday (February 24) and it seems Jennifer Lawrence forgot to thank a couple key people during her speech.
The “Hunger Games” gal left out “Silver Linings Playbook” director David O Russell and producer Harvey Weinstein, and she feels awful about it.
Jennifer told press, "In the whirlwind of last night, I was remiss to thank two incredibly important people to this film and in my life.”
Regarding Russell, Lawrence gushed,"Thank you for the most incredible experience of my life. Thank you for your genius, for your guidance, for teaching me things about myself and nurturing me to be a better actor. You have so much passion and such a bleeding heart, you believe not only in your films but what your films can do for people and that is the most important thing that I have learned from you."
As for Weinstein, Jen shared, "You championed this movie and its story from early days. Your passion and unyielding support gave this film the opportunity to thrive and touch so many people."
"I will never be able to forgive myself for such a brain fart but I hope that you both can. 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!"
