On Sunday, the stars took to the rain for Britain’s answer to the Oscars, the BAFTAs, with The Hunger Games’ Jennifer Lawrence hoping to clinch the Best Actress nod for her stunning performance as Tiffany in Silver Linings Playbook.
Lawrence, who looked beautiful in a Dior Haute Couture gown, certainly made an impression on host Stephen Fry, a British comedian and actor, who asked her to blow a kiss at one of the cameras.
Lawrence, seen right with director Quentin Tarantino, looked a shoe-in for Best Actress after meeting with success at the SAG awards and the Golden Globes, but it wasn’t to be.
For Emmanuelle Riva, who will turn 86 on the night of the Oscars, received the honour for her performance in French film Amour.
Still, it wasn’t all bad for Silver Linings, as it received the Adapted Screenplay gong.
The Best Actress Oscars tussle was thought to be between Lawrence and Jessica Chastain, for her role in Zero Dark Thirty, but Riva’s BAFTAs success may have changed that.
Do you think Lawrence will clinch the coveted award? Or will she fall at the final hurdle as in 2011, when she lost out to Natalie Portman?
Our most anticipated movie of 2012 stole the show at the People’s Choice Awards Wednesday night, walking away with five prizes. “The Hunger Games” won favorite movie, action movie and movie franchise, and cast members Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson won the favorite on-screen chemistry category. Lawrence also nabbed the favorite movie actress award and “face of heroism.”
Way to represent the franchise with your votes, Mockingjays!

Victory Tour 2013 is sure to be the best book fan event of 2013. Its main focus is The Hunger Games, with a focus on other dystopian books as well. However, in order for this convention to take place, The Gamemakers need your help. The convention will not go on if it does not get 100 more registrations before the end of the year. Watch the below video of Head Gamemaker Ellie covering topics that may be of concern to some.
If you want to register for the Victory Tour, you can go here.
We met the lovely Jacqueline Emerson (Foxface) at the Breaking Dawn Part 2 Premiere on November 12th on the red carpet for BreakingDawnMovie.org along with Team Twilight and Twifans.
Amandla Steinberg was just as lovely! She was signing autographs for fans on the red carpet.
We did get to chat with them at the after party. They loved Breaking Dawn Part 2 and we started talking about the twist and our reaction.
These young ladies are absolutely wonderful, so sweet and just beautiful.
After a few changes which added in a few more fan favorites Victory Tour 2013 opened up their registration. Here’s what the Victory Tour Gamemakers had to say about the location, dates and types of registrants the convention will include. There are also some details about the bonuses early registrants will receive, so check it out below:
After a few minor set backs and much anticipation, Victory Tour 2013 would like to announce the dates and location of the convention: June 19-22, 2013 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Two registration levels are currently available for purchase: Citizen Registration and Rebel Registration. Lit Day is available for Citizens to purchase separately and is included with the Rebel registration fee. Attendance for the event has been maxed out at 500 to ensure the quality of the experience for all attendees and the availability to attend and participate in main stage and interactive events. Only 200 Rebel registrations will be available. As we secure special guests, additional options, such as autographs, will become available.
We encourage attendees to stay at the hotel at which the convention will take place, which will help in supporting the convention as well as make your experience more cohesive. A special group rate will be available for convention attendees. The link for the hotel will be provided in the coming weeks.

The first people to register (specific details below) will receive an exclusive meet and greet with the cast and crew of Tributes: a Hunger Games Fan Musical!

At first, fans were not all that excited about the blonde, shapely Jennifer Lawrence playing our beloved Katniss Everdeen. But after the “Hunger Games” movie release in March, there were no complaints to be heard. Unfortunately, our favorite heroine is still getting guff about her womanly figure.
“In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress,” states Lawrence in the December issue of “Elle” magazine.
Jennifer has never been one to conform to Hollywood standards, but now that she has a huge fan base, comprised mostly of younger teens thanks to her role in the “Hunger Games,” she wants to continue being a good role model for healthy self-image.
“I’m never going to starve myself for a part… I don’t want little girls to be like, ‘Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner,” says the Oscar-nominated actress. “That’s something I was really conscious of during training, when you’re trying to get your body to look exactly right. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong — not thin and underfed.”
Despite the fact that Jennifer is one of the most sought-after talents, she does not plan to show off her riches in the form of a monstrous nine-bedroom castle. “Ten million dollars and I’m still living in my parents’ condo…I’ve always lived in a tiny rat-infested apartment in New York, or a little condo in L.A., or a normal house in Kentucky. I think it would be very bizarre to live in a big mansion by myself.”
As for the candid remarks we all seem to love, Jennifer admits she feels uneasy about how her statements will be received. “I never know what’s going to come out of my mouth, and it’s horrible. I don’t find it positive in any way. When I get older, I’ll be more mature and poised. And I’ll have control over my mouth. One day, I’m going to grow up…”
Regarding her love life with Nicholas Hoult, who she starred alongside in “X-Men: First Class, Lawrence says, “[My boyfriend] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too. He’s my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody.”
As a fellow curvy girl, I really admire Jennifer for being confident in her body and not caving in to the ridiculous standards of beauty we see in the media. A woman’s shape doesn’t matter, as long as she is healthy. And I hope Jennifer never loses that frankness – it’s part of what makes her so hilarious.

Francis Lawrence, the director that replaced Gary Ross to direct Catching Fire, has been confirmed as the director of both Mockingjay parts one and two.
Lawrence previously directed Water for Elephants and I Am Legend as well as videos for Beyonce and Janet Jackson.
Just so you know how it works:
- The moms see the clothes in Hollywood paparazzi photos and reality shows.
- They buy the luxury goods for their kids in Manhattan.
- They dress up the kids Toddlers & Tiaras style.
- The kids become moms and reality starlets.
Now THIS is funny!
