Last night at the SAG Awards, which of course stands for Sensual Armenian Goalposts (full list of SAG Award winners and nominees below), Jennifer Lawrence took home the best actress award for her role in Silver Linings Playbook. During her acceptance speech, she first thanked MTV, which seems weird, because you’d think if MTV was running the SAG awards, the winner would be Braden Boogerface from Twilight and the statue would be a surfboard. Lawrence explained:
“I wanna thank MTV. I’ll explain. I earned my SAG card – when I was 14 I did an MTV promo for My Super Sweet 16. And I remember getting it in the mail and I remember it being the best day of my entire life because it officially made me a professional actor, which put me in the category with all of you. And now I have this naked statue, that means that some of you even voted for me.”
So you’re saying next time I camp out outside your house naked, I should paint myself silver like a statue? Duly noted, Jennifer Lawrence, duly noted. Whatever makes you comfortable. Anyway, since Jennifer Lawrence basically told the internet to google her MTV promo, the internet quickly googled her MTV promo, which is above. The amazing thing is that Jennifer Lawrence at 14 looks pretty much exactly the same as she does now (she’s 22). At 14, I looked someone dyed a Ronald McDonald wig blonde and put it on some braces. Luckily I’m 76 now and have outgrown my awkward phase.
Aaaaand here’s a gif of Jennifer Lawrence on the red carpet:
