Golden Globes 2016: Jennifer Lawrence wins Best Actress for Joy
Jennifer Lawrence’s role as Joy Mangano in David O. Russell’s Joy has won the actress her third Golden Globe award.
“Everytime I’m up here, it’s because of you,” Lawrence said of Russell in her acceptance speech.
Lawrence and Russell continue to be an awards power couple. Both of Lawrence’s previous wins also came from Russell-directed movies, for Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.
“David and I will never, ever, ever, ever not do movies together,” Lawrence told EW in November for her Entertainer of the Year cover story. “I love him so much that sometimes I can’t talk about him without tearing up. Look! I’m tearing up. I understand every look, every eyeball move, every word he says or doesn’t say. We were made for each other.”
Lawrence beat out Melissa McCarthy for Spy, Amy Schumer for Trainwreck, Maggie Smith for The Lady in the Van, and Lily Tomlin for Grandma for the honor. She hugged Schumer, her good friend, after winning the award.
“She’s gonna be fine!” Lawrence said backstage after winning. “It wasn’t a matter of feeling bad, because she’s funny and hilarious and will win many things. I just didn’t expect, I really expected Amy to win. I just like, this was very truly surprising for me. I was just really surprised.”
