NEWS: Jennifer Lawrence wins Best Actress Award for 'The Hunger Games' at the Empire Awards 2013

The Jameson Empire Awards 2013 ceremony was held last night (where Sam Claflin reveals that he has seen the Catching Fire trailer) and according to a report from Empire, our Jenniffer Lawrence won the Best Actress award for her portrayal of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games! Another award trophy to be added to Jennifer's collection. ;) Congrats Jen!

BEST ACTRESS presented by Citroen 
Presenting this next one is a man who recently ventured into A Field In England with Ben Wheatley – so he’s a braver man than we are – and survived to take a crack at playing Patrick Troughton in Doctor Who story An Adventure In Space And Time. It’s Reece Shearsmith! “Being an actress myself, I know how much it means to win this. I have a little anecdote here I’d like to share with you – if you could just pass that around [goes down to give a piece of paper to an audience member]“
And the winner is JENNIFER LAWRENCE for The Hunger Games rather than Silver Linings Playbook (or SILVER LININGS (playbook) here in the UK), because Empire voters don’t get freaked out by genre movies. She can’t be with us tonight because she’s still hunger gaming somewhere. That, or she tripped on the way to the red carpet and hasn’t gotten up yet. Either way, may the odds be ever in her favour. And she has sent a message, which Shearsmith reads.
“Hi Empire awards, I’m really sorry I can’t be there. I’d like to thank the Empire readers for voting for me. I loved playing Catnip – is that right?” asks Shearsmith. “I’ll make sure she gets this award… I won’t really.”
