Jennifer Lawrence gives Kentucky a good name on the red carpet
Tonight, you may have heard over and over elsewhere, the Academy Awards feature Kentucky’s very own Jennifer Lawrence as a Best Actress nominee. Blogs and media covering the red carpet are already going wild over her stunning appearance in Hollywood. Her film, Winter’s Bone, as we’ve noted on this site, portrays a rural community with a low-income population, akin to some part of our state. The film is up for Best Picture and also has John Hawkes nominated for Best Supporting Actor. Natalie Portman is the certain favorite, but Lawrence has a chance to do Kentucky proud with an Oscar win. Coverage started at 8:30, so tune in and see what happens (if you’ve got nothing better to do, here are other nominees). Friend of the site, Terry Meiners wrote this blog post about Lawrence and Louisville earlier.
