SBIFF's Outstanding Performer of the Year Award will honor Jennifer Lawrence
On Saturday, February 2 Jennifer Lawrence will be honored with a Tribute celebrating her compelling performances in The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook. Lawrence will be honored for her diverse performances in film this year. In both The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook she presents two vastly different and complex characters. In The Hunger Games, Lawrence stars as the courageous and fierce, Katniss Everdeen, striving to survive. Starring alongside Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook, directed by David O. Russell, Lawrence plays the vulnerable and complex Tiffany. Silver Linings Playbook is a heartfelt dramatic comedy about everyday struggles as well as the triumphs of ordinary people showcasing a dark, comedic, and more vulnerable side of Lawrence that is quite remarkable.
“Ms. Lawrence impressed us earlier this year in The Hunger Games, but has now left us moonstruck with her career-defining performance in Silver Lining Playbook – recalling classic turns by Lombard, Stanwyck and Colbert,” commented SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling. “Naming her our Outstanding Performer of the Year is an understatement.” WebsiteEvent ListingProfile Contact: Roger Durling (805) 963-0023
