This must have been the day she was waiting all her life...and what a big night, after a fall.
Winning the Oscar for Best Actress is beyond doubt Jennifer Lawrence's biggest moment.
But she will remember this day not just for winning the award. Jennifer was left flustered after tripping up the steps on her way to accept her awards.
As she staggered to her feet the star-studded audience leapt up to give the blushing actress a standing ovation, much to her embarrassment.
The “Silver Linings Playbook” star tripped on the train of her Dior Haute Couture dress.
“You are standing up because you’re feeling bad that I fell, and that’s embarrassing,” the 22-year-old actress said, acknowledging the standing ovation from her peers after finally making it to the mic.
