The Playlist’s Woman Of The Year 2012: Jennifer Lawrence

The Capitol : December 21, 2012 7:26 AM : FEATURED, News

Jennifer Lawrence has yet another accolade to add to her resume, as she has been named by The Playlist as their Woman of the Year for 2012.


Last year, picking the woman of the year was a no-brainer. We chose Jessica Chastain, who started 2011 as a virtual unknown, and ended it as the star of critical favorites like “The Tree Of Life” and “Take Shelter,” box office hits like “The Help” (for which she earned an Oscar nod), all while impressing with diverse roles across a slate of films including “The Debt,” “Coriolanus,” and “Texas Killing Fields.” And this year, we went with another young actress who also showed tremendous range, with acumen both at the multiplex and arthouse.

Yes, it’s Jennifer Lawrence. The actress, who turned 22 in August, has had one of the most meteoric rises we can remember. Her feature film debut, in Guillermo Arriaga‘s “The Burning Plain,” came only four years ago. Two years later, she exploded as a result of her starring role in Sundance flick “Winter’s Bone” — playing the steely, determined Ree deservedly won her, at only 20 years old, a Best Actress Oscar nomination. That led to other indie roles in “Like Crazy” and “The Beaver,” as well as a studio tentpole debut as Mystique in “X-Men: First Class,” in which she made a character who’d been a cypher in previous films one of the most interesting parts of the movie.

But that was nothing compared to playing the highly sought-after role of Katniss Everdeen in the adaptation of young adult phenomenon “The Hunger Games.” The film hit theaters earlier in the year, and proved to be a massive success (unadjusted, the thirteenth biggest of all time), and in another fierce turn, Lawrence proved she can carry a giant tentpole movie pretty much entirely on her shoulders; she dominates it, creating one of the strongest, most badass female heroines of recent years, and almost singlehandedly rebuffing idiot studio executives who claim that audiences won’t turn up to see event movies led by women…………

RUMOR: Wilbur Fitzgerald Plays Cray in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’

The Capitol : December 18, 2012 8:21 AM : FEATURED, News

There were a lot of minor characters from the Catching Fire book that Lionsgate never announced castings for, and the role of Cray – the old District 12 Peacekeeper who is replaced by Romulus Thread – was one of them.

According to some sleuthing by HG Fireside Chat, it looks like Wilbur Fitzgerald was cast in the role: His profile page on his talent agency’s website lists the role of Cray in his credits.

His scenes may end up being omitted from the final cut (like the Avox girl’s scenes in The Hunger Games)…

Jennifer Lawrence Makes THR’s Women in Entertainment 2012: Power 100 List

The Capitol : December 6, 2012 4:40 AM : FEATURED, News

TheHungetrGames star Jennifer Lawrence was one of the few actresses to make The Hollywood Reporter’s power 100 list for Women in Entertainment in 2012.

Stewart ranked fiftieth on the list – a spot shared with the twilight saga star Kristen stewart and the unconquerable Meryl Streep.…

50# Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart and Meryl Streep
The Box-Office Queens

The 22-year-old Lawrence — bursting on the scene two years ago with an Oscar nom for tiny indie drama Winter’s Bone – can do more than open a movie or get one greenlighted: She can command an enviable $10 million salary for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which hits theaters in November 2013. In March, the first Hunger Games sealed her fate when it opened to $152.2 million, the fifth-best debut of all time, and ultimately grossed $686.5 million worldwide (she got paid a mere $500,000 for that film). And if her good fortune continues, she could soon end up collecting an Oscar nom for Silver Linings Playbook, a critical darling.

Catching Fire’ Expected to Film in Hawaii Until December 22

The Capitol : December 1, 2012 12:51 AM : FEATURED, News

Catching Fire began filming in Hawaii this week, and according to Hawaii News Now, it’s set to wrap on December 22.

NORTH SHORE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

An almost guaranteed blockbuster has begun filming in Hawaii. Catching Fire, the much anticipated sequel in The Hunger Games trilogy, is shooting at several locations in the state between November 26 and December 22.

The star of the movie, Jennifer Lawrence, was spotted in character and armed with a bow and arrow splashing into the ocean on Oahu’s North Shore Monday. Filming is also planned in Manoa.

It’s a testament to the fact that Hawaii was able to provide the location that they needed,” said Donne Dawson, State Film Commissioner.  “They looked all over the state and other jurisdictions and settled on several spots here on Oahu.”

The movie, by Lionsgate Films, is set to be released in late 2013.

Jennifer Lawrence to receive the Outstanding Performer of the Year Award from the Santa Barbara Film Festival

The Capitol : December 1, 2012 12:37 AM : News

Exclusive from Yahoo!Movies :-

2012 is looking like it will be remembered as the Year of the Lawrence.

Jennifer Lawrence is still only 22 years old, but she had more success this year than most actors do in their entire careers. She starred in one of the top-grossing films of 2012, the record-breaking The Hunger Games.” Then she followed that smash hit with a critically acclaimed and Independent Spirit Award-nominated turn as a troubled young widow in director David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook.”

It was on the strength of these two powerful and very different performances that the Santa Barbara International Film Festival announced today that Jennifer Lawrence will be the recipient of their Outstanding Performer of the Year Award.  Lawrence will be honored at the 28th installment of the festival on February 2 at the historic Arlington Theater.

SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling stated, “Ms. Lawrence impressed us earlier this year in ‘The Hunger Games,’ but has now left us moonstruck with her career-defining performance in ‘Silver Lining Playbook.’” He went on to add, “Naming her our Outstanding Performer of the Year is an understatement.”

Lawrence joins a rather sterling group of former recipients of the award, including Viola Davis in 2012, James Franco in 2011, Angelina Jolie in 2008, Helen Mirren in 2007, and Heath Ledger in 2006.  The award also solidifies Lawrence as a sure-fire contender for an Oscar this year, as past honoree Colin Firth (2010) and Penelope Cruz (2009) went on to take top honors in their categories.

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival will also be honoring Robert De Niro next month as he receives the Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film. And “Argo” director and star Ben Affleck will be given the Modern Master Award at the festival, which runs from January 24 through February 3.
