They get an A for Academy Award and an E for ecstatic! Shortly after the 2016 Oscar nominations were announced on Thursday, January 14, the nominees — including Revenant director Alejandro Inarritu, Joy actress Jennifer Lawrence, Room star Brie Larson and singer Lady Gaga — released statements to Us Weekly and celebrated their nods via social media.
Jennifer Lawrence, Best Actress in a Leading Role Nominee for Joy
“I am beyond grateful and humbled by this nomination. I feel incredibly honored to be recognized among the other amazing women in this category. Joy is an incredibly inspiring story about an ordinary woman who does extraordinary things. For me, working with David O. Russell has been nothing short of extraordinary, and I share this nomination with him as well as our incredible supporting cast. I could not be more proud to be a part of this film and thankful to the producers and Fox for their unyielding support.”
There are always surprises when the Screen Actors Guild Awards announce their nominations — many are still trying to figure out Naomi Watts’ nod last year for “St. Vincent” — and this morning was no exception. On the film side, Helen Mirren walked away the big winner, with three nominations for her work in “Woman in Gold” (lead actress) and “Trumbo” (supporting actress, ensemble.) And the TV side saw the return of some favorites and a few new additions, including “Mr. Robot” star Rami Malek. The SAG Awards are the only major awards show that honor only actors, and are voted on by fellow actors, SAG-AFTRA members. The 22nd Screen Actors Guild Awards will air at 8 p.m. EST on Jan. 30 on on TNT/TBS.

Has Jennifer Lawrence’s sweetness finally curdled?! After winning the Best Actress Academy Award last year for her turn in Silver Linings Playbook, the beloved, fun-loving star, 23, was up for yet another trophy this year in the Best Supporting Actress category for American Hustle — but, despite what many considered neck-to-neck odds, 12 Years a Slave’s Lupita Nyong’o triumphed instead.
And backstage, Lawrence, naturally, played up her loss and the battle-of-the-ingenues angle, grabbing Nyong’o’s golden statue as both stunning women pretended to fight over the Oscar.
Indisputably this award season’s breakout star, Nyong’o, 31, was emotional and poisedas ever when she accepted her award. “It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else’s,” the Prada-clad newcomer said of her harrowing portrayal. “And so I want to salute the spirit of Patsey for her guidance. . . When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from your dreams are valid.”
Lawrence, meanwhile, still had plenty of moments in the spotlight anyway — tripping yet again outside the L.A. Theatre and presenting the Best Picture award, which went to 12 Years a Slave.
Never one to miss out on an industry event, Jennifer Lawrence got all gussied up and headed over to the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles for the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards earlier tonight (January 18). All decked out and primped to perfection, the “American Hustle” starlet smiled for the cameras and mingled with fellow famous folks before strolling inside to find her seat.
The 23-year-old actress joined her American Hustle castmates Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, and more backstage after they won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.
Thanks to Claudia for these wonderful pictures!
