Jennifer Lawrence Wins Best Actress

The odds were ever in her favor. Taking a little tumble on the way to the stage, the always-endearing Jennifer Lawrence accepted the Oscar for Best Actress for her volatile role in Silver Linings Playbook. Ending with a quick, “Happy birthday, Emmanuelle!” and departing from the stage with no stumbles. Daniel Day-Lewis took home his third Oscar for Best Actor, this time for his role in Lincoln. “I had actually committed to play Margaret Thatcher and Meryl was Stephen’s first choice for Lincoln,” he joked. “And I’d like to see that version.”
