Watch: Santa Barbara Film Festival Video Tribute to Jennifer Lawrence
The Oscars will be presented live this weekend, and we'll see who walks away with the top prizes. One of the frontrunners is Jennifer Lawrence in the Best Actress category for her phenomenal performance in Silver Linings Playbook, and while she's already been honored at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and Golden Globes, the actress was given a tribute at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. It might seem a little early since her career just seems to be taking off, but the 12-minute sizzle reel they've crafted shows why Lawrence deserves so much praise for the work she's done thus far. She should be around for quite a while.
Here's the Santa Barbara Film Festival's sizzle reel for Jennifer Lawrence (via Hollywood Elsewhere):
Personally, I love how they lead into Lawrence's generation of actresses by using great, iconic clips of Claduette Colbert in It Happened One Night, Diane Keaton in Annie Hall and even Cher in Moonstruck. Those are all great performances, and Lawrence has shown a similar talent and even emulating their screen presence from time to time. From this year's Silver Linings Playbook to her breakout role in Winter's Bone, another Oscar nominated role, she's truly one of the top actresses working today, and we look forward to seeing what else she brings to the table in what promises to be a long and fruitful career. Cool?
