Jennifer Lawrence is an American film and television actress. Her first major role was as a lead cast member on the TBS sitcom "The Bill Engvall Show" (2007–2009). She subsequently appeared in the independent films The Burning Plain (2008) and Winter's Bone (2010), for which she received nominations for the Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, Satellite Award, Independent Spirit Award, and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actress. At age 20, she was, at the time, the third-youngest actress ever to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress. At age 22, Lawrence's performance in the romantic comedy Silver Linings Playbook (2012) earned her the Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, Satellite Award and the Independent Spirit Award for Best Actress, amongst other accolades, making her the youngest person ever to be nominated for two Academy Awards for Best Actress and the second-youngest Best Actress winner. Beginning in 2012, she gained international fame for playing the leading heroine, Katniss Everdeen, in the The Hunger Games film series, an adaptation of Suzanne Collins' best-selling trilogy of novels. Lawrence's performances thus far have prompted Rolling Stone to call her "the most talented young actress in America."
