Jennifer Lawrence Falls While Accepting Oscar Win

The Best Leading Actress category was anyone's game. There were little girls and elderly women and newcomers and Hollywood veterans.

But, the award went to Jennifer Lawrence for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, and it's not a bad thing she was also a fan-favorite, for being young and adorable and great at interviews.

However, Jen’s win was overshadowed by the fact that she fell on the stairs on the way to her acceptance speech.

Yeah, poor J. Law couldn’t tame her gigantic Dior dress and tripped onto the stairs and then kind of hung out there for a minute. She rattled through her acceptance speech, probably a little too fast, riding on the nerves of THAT FALL.

Jennifer told Hollyscoop on the red carpet that she was struggling with her dress and almost fell a few times walking around for photos, "My foot keeps getting caught in the tulle [of the dress]," the jokingly complained to Hollyscoop.

This is Jennifer Lawrence’s first Oscar win, so hopefully she'll go down in history for the win and not the trip.
