Jennifer Lawrence, 22, took home Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy  at the Golden Globe Awards last night.   One can only imagine her reaction a few weeks ago, when the nominations were announced. For a young actress, she was probably shocked.  Upon hearing that she was up against Meryl Streep, she probably thought that she didn’t stand a chance.  And that was that.

Pretty dress, pretty shoes, diamonds……… but a win? INSANITY

….But she did it.

When Jennifer Lawrence accepted her award, the first thing that came out of her mouth into the microphone was…”I beat Meryl.”

As I perused the Golden Globe reviews this morning, I was taken aback with the Fox News article written today in reference to Jennifer’s acceptance speech.

“When you’re 22 and you’ve been in Hollywood for, like, a minute? Not very classy, Jen.”  – Fox News

Seriously, this was a 22-year-old girl who won the coveted award.   I can only imagine the right term for Jennifer Lawrence’s surprise would be “shock and awe” upon realizing that she indeed beat Meryl Streep, who wins everything.

All I can say is that I’m incredibly proud of this young actress and I hope that her ride to the Oscars is as prosperous as this one.  Everyone deserves a break.

Do you think this was the most awkward moment at the Golden Globes last night?
