The "Silver Linings Playbook" star won Best Actress at the 85th annual Academy Awards and delivered a stirring, funny and provocative speech while accepting the honor.

After tripping, Lawrence said, "You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell."

Lawrence, 22, left her mark on awards season by giving a number of memorable interviews and speeches. When Lawrence won Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globes in January, she made reference to "First Wives Club"; after winning at the Screen Actors Guild award, Lawrence spoke of her first job on a commercial for the MTV show "My Super Sweet 16."

In an interview with The New York Times last year, Lawrence joked that she wanted to get a "pizza with her face on it" after being nominated for Best Actress.

The Best Actress nomination was Lawrence's second in three years (she was previously nominated in 2011 for "Winter's Bone"). Lawrence enjoyed an incredible 2012 in addition to "Silver Linings Playbook"; she also starred in "The Hunger Games," which grossed over $686 million worldwide.
