On the heels of Jennifer Lawrence’s Golden Globe nomination this morning, MTV’s Josh Horowitz had the opportunity to talk to her and get her reactions to this amazing news!
“I had no idea [the Golden Globes nominations were Thursday],” Lawrence told MTV News during an exclusive interview from the set of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” the next chapter in the saga of reluctant rebel leader Katniss Everdeen. “My agent called me at 5:30 and I thought the set of my movie had burned down, or Josh [Hutcherson] had died or something. I didn’t realize! I was so tired!”
Now that she’s awake, Lawrence is fully aware of her Best Actress nomination for “Silver Linings Playbook,” director David O. Russell’s romantic-comedy about Pat, a man with bipolar disorder (played by Bradley Cooper) who meets Tiffany (Lawrence), a recent widow who becomes an important part of Pat’s life. The film received three nominations in addition to Lawrence’s nod.
“It’s amazing. It was such an incredible part,” Lawrence said of receiving the nomination. “All the blood, sweat and tears that everybody put in this movie, and how much it meant to everyone, we can all share it together. David and Bradley got the recognition they deserve. It’s wonderful to be able to share it with everyone.”
They also talked briefly about Catching Fire, which is about to wrap up shooting next week:
It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, then, that Lawrence isn’t spending the day celebrating her “Silver Linings” nomination. Instead, she’s hard at work on “Catching Fire.” Lawrence has eight days left of shooting on the “Hunger Games” sequel, and today’s workload involves getting into kill-or-be-killed Katniss mode.
“I’m covered in dirt, I’m drinking coffee, and then I’m going to go get into a swamp later. I’m basically just doing what all the other nominees are doing today,” she joked. “We’re all getting in a swamp together!
