Los Angeles, CA
No matter how many awards an actor wins, there must be something bewildering about winning an Oscar award -- one's first Oscar award at that.
Jennifer Lawrence looked bewildered, afloat and at a loss for words when she came up on stage to gather her Oscar award for Best Actress that she has forgotten to thank some important people who have undoubtedly done a lot for her career.
She made up for that the following day, as she released a statement to Entertainment Weekly saying, "In the whirlwind of last night, I was remiss to thank two incredibly important people to this film and in my life."
"David O. Russell: 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."
"Harvey Weinstein: 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."
"Thank you to both. 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!"
In her Oscars speech last Sunday, she said, "Thank you, you guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell. And that's really embarrassing." (Lawrence tripped on the stairs en route the stage.) She then proceeded to thank the Academy, her family, the "Silver Linings Playbook" production team and her co-stars but leaving out Russell and Weinstein.
Meanwhile, after the Oscars, 22-year-old Lawrence has dyed her hair dark and flown to Hawaii to shoot unfinished scenes for her upcoming film "Hunger Games: Catching Fire."
