The film follows Jasmine, “a Park Avenue Princess”, whose wealthy husband Hal (Alec Baldwin) winds up in jail as a result of dodgy business practices.
Falling on hard times, Jasmine moves in with her adopted sister, Ginger, who lives in a humble apartment in San Francisco. Depressed and addicted to alcohol and pills, Jasmine desperately tries to maintain the appearance of wealth and decorum, as the truth is gradually revealed.
Cate Blanchett, who won best supporting actress for her performance as Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator, in 2005, is currently filming in Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella.
Jennifer Lawrence was left flustered after tripping up the steps on her way to accept her Oscar for Best Actress.
As Jennifer Lawrence staggered to her feet the star-studded audience leapt up to give the blushing actress a standing ovation, much to her embarrassment.
“Thank you so much,” she told them.
“This is nuts. You guys are only standing up because I fell and you feel bad. That was embarrassing.”
Jennifer Lawrence also thanked her Silver Linings Playbook co-stars, crew and team for their support before wishing her fellow nominee, Amour star Emmanuelle Riva a happy 86th birthday.
Dressed in a stunning off-white strapless Dior Haute Couture gown, Jennifer Lawrence’s accident happened as she rushed to the stage still shocked by her win.
As she fell on her knees Jennifer Lawrence momentarily held her head in her hands, but quickly carried on.
A smiling Hugh Jackman rushed to help Jennifer Lawrence, holding out his hand to escort her safely to the podium.
Despite her initial embarrassment the 22-year-old quickly laughed off the incident and began her stream of thank yous.
Perhaps Jennifer Lawrence’s quick recovery is due to the fact that she’s been in a very similar situation before.
At the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards Jennifer Lawrence’s midnight blue Dior gown appeared to fall apart as she climbed the stairs.
Then Dior explained that the dress was made in layers, with Jennifer Lawrence simply hitching up the top layer to reveal her legs.
This time the unfortunate incident could have been even worse.
The new face of Miss Dior admitted she’d actually cut off six inches from the train of the dress before the show.
“It would have been too insane,” Jennifer Lawrence told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet.

Still, the dress was long enough to hide her feet and high heels, which she said she would love to take off if nobody would notice.
Jennifer Lawrence also revealed she had a very stressful day before the event and admitted she hadn’t had time to eat.
“I’m freaking starving,” she said.
She then pointed longingly to McDonald’s down Hollywood Boulevard and jokingly asked her publicist to swing by and pick her up a burger.
“Today was so stressful. There was everybody in, my family got ready at my house.
“I felt like Steve Martin in Father of the Bride with all the furniture being moved around my house.”
