Behind every smoldering, smoky-eyed, GIF-able hottie, there’s a pajama-wearing little girl waiting to be nominated for an Academy Award. It’s been well over a year since Jennifer Lawrence was nominated for Best Actress at the 2011 Oscars, but a photo of her reaction on the morning of the announcement has been circulating around the social networks, and it’s friggin’ adorable.
Let’s examine: Lawrence, coming off the sudden success of indie drama Winter’s Bone, is clearly at rest in her silky PJs and cozy cardigan (earth tones, no doubt) before her world is rocked by the announcement (and let’s be honest, she still looks bad-ass, even mid-meltdown). Father, Mother and Brother Lawrence are charmingly thrilled, if not quite as emotional as Lawrence. What’s the best part of this picture? Easily it’s Lawrence’s boyfriend (and X-Men: First Class costar) Nicholas Hoult cheering from the sidelines…in roller skates, at 6:30 in the morning. A morning routine? A sartorial decision? A Xanadu role play?
One fan on Tumblr posted this excerpt from Rolling Stone regarding the photo:
On the morning the Oscar nominations were announced, someone snapped a photo of her and her family just as her name was being read. The look on her face, she said, was “like I’m being sent off to jail.” Zoe Kravitz says she loved teasing her “‘You’re up against Natalie Portman; you don’t stand a chance!’ and she’d go ‘You’re right! I don’t!’” (Lenny said he did catch her in the library at his house in Paris, though, holding one of his Grammys and giving a practice acceptance speech.)
PopWatchers, how does this picture make you feel about Jennifer Lawrence? And do you think that wooden shelf in the back is mahogany!?
