Jennifer Lawrence Makes 'Em Laugh At Producers Guild Awards
The Hunger Games star has audience in stitches with hilarious patter...
You might expect the Producers Guild Awards to be a bit less exciting than some of the other more star-studded ceremonies going on over awards season.
But if so then you clearly didn't count on Jennifer Lawrence being booked to hand out one of the gongs.
The star of The Hunger Games stole the show at the industry gong show last night, wowing on the red carpet in an elegant white dress and then having the audience eating out of the palm of her hand.
Presenting an award to Jon Feltheimer, CEO of Lionsgate (which is responsible for The Hunger Games movie franchise), she kept the gags coming thick and fast.
"Jon was charged to ensure that Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games incredible trilogy of books was respectfully brought to life in four films and it was a... large f**king failure!" she quipped.
"I normally say no to this kind of thing on the account of my crippling anxiety and the unbreakable bond between woman and couch," she went on.
"But when I heard it was for Feltheimer, I had to say yes because I just assumed that I was contractually obligated - but then when I found out that I wasn't, I had already picked out this dress."
She did get serious for a brief moment as she paid tribute to the studio and what it had done for her career, although she couldn't resist another gag about women's job prospects in Hollywood as they get toward middle age.
"I was so afraid of signing on to these movies a few years ago because something that size can make or break a career," she said.
"I put my trust in Lionsgate and they put their trust in me and now I think we have a strong and amazing relationship that I hope lasts until my career dies at 35."
