Another year, another opportunity for Jennifer Lawrence to skip the MTV Movie Awards. The Oscar-winning actress picked up two nominations this morning for her role as Katniss Everdeen inThe Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1: Best Female Performance and Best Musical Moment. Lawrence has won the Golden Popcorn trophy three years running in the Best Female Performance category, and has five total awards in 14 nominations, counting this year. But despite all the MTV gold, Lawrence has never attended the ceremony, usually citing scheduling conflicts.
If you thought Jennifer Lawrence was ruthless in American Hustle, wait until you see her in 'Serena.' This exclusive clip from Lawrence’s and Bradley Cooper’s long-shelved Depression-era drama features the frequent onscreen collaborators as newlyweds fresh off a shotgun wedding.
Lionsgate’s decision to split The Hunger Games: Mockingjay into two parts didn’t stop fans from flooding theaters on the film’s opening weekend. Before she will commit herself to being a revolutionary, however, Katniss insists on a dangerous mission to find and rescure her friend and sort-of-fiance Peeta (Josh Hutcherson, above), who has been kidnapped by the evil President Snow.
The time for revolution is at hand, and film critics are eager to get on with it. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 is receiving mixed-to-positive reviews, with the general consensus that the penultimate Hunger Games movie just doesn’t feel complete on its own. “Part 1 is a likable preamble, a moment to let the flames die down before adding more fuel,” Henry Barnes writes in The Guardian.
