Assembling legions of female fans, a petition to add Jennifer Lawrence's character in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" to the list of MTV Movie Award nominations for Best Hero was recently launched.
Last week, it was revealed that all five candidates were male, namely: Henry Cavill as Clark Kent in "Man of Steel," Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man in "Iron Man 3," Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins in "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," Chris Hemsworth as Thor in "Thor: The Dark World," and Channing Tatum as John Cale in "White House Down."
Always there for her pal, Jennifer Lawrence's best friend, Laura Simpson attended the Academy Awards as her date, helped her stay up when she had an infamous spill, and also wrote a heartfelt essay about the "Hunger Games" starlet, and her Oscars experience.
Appropriately named, "I Went to the Oscars and Nobody Cared," Simpson posted her essay about being an invisible person next to one of the most famous people in the world on Myspace, writing, "How did I get invited to the 86th Academy Awards, you ask? Well, my best friend took me as her date. I met her seven years ago at an event where we both didn’t know a single person. We hit it off over a mutual respect for Chandler Bing, and we’ve been eating pizza together ever since."
She scored some seriously amazing ratings at the 86th Academy Awards on Sunday (March 2) and Ellen DeGeneres had a camera following her around the whole time to capture all the star-studded behind-the-scenes action.
At one point, the talk show queen explained to Jennifer Lawrence that the Oscar selfie actually shut down Twitter due to a surge in traffic to see the shot.
The 22-year-old actress looked picture perfect in designer garbs from Elie Saab and Lanvin for the Mary Rozzi-shot spread while she discussed her decision to sign on to the action-packed flick and revealed how Jennifer Lawrence convinced her to take the role.
