Jennifer Lawrence has a monster hit starring in the current Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire. But she might soon be getting even more attention for another movie that’s about to be released.
The 23-year-old has a supporting role in David O. Russell’s American Hustle and even though the film isn’t out yet, she’s already won one of the awards season’s earliest honors.
The New York Film Critics Circle on Tuesday named Jennifer Best Supporting Actress for her role as Christian Bale’s wife in the crime drama. Early screenings for critics have garnered big buzz for Lawrence’s performance with numerous critics predicting the current Best Actress Oscar winner will be a shoe-in for another Oscar nomination for her performance. And if she does get nominated and wins, she’ll only be the third actress in history to repeat back to back Academy Award wins. And this girl is only 23!
Just like Katniss, Jennifer is definitely a girl on fire right now!
