Jennifer Lawrence may still be too under the weather to attend tonight’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, where she’s nominated in for her role in Silver Linings Playbook.
Oscar-nominated Jennifer Lawrence reportedly has been fighting a serious case of pneumonia, which has prevented her from accepting more trophies received for her leading role in the comedy alongside Bradley Cooper, according to the Huffington Post.
The Hunger Games star, 22, also missed Saturday’s awards show for the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Awards because of her illness. Her Silver Linings co-star Jackie Weaver accepted Lawrence’s Best Actress trophy for her.
“Poor Jen is really sick. She really is sick. She has pneumonia,” Weaver said from the podium.
The film’s producer, Bruce Cohen, told Us Weekly on Saturday that Lawrence is trying to make it to tonight’s awards show.
“With all her appearances, she hasn’t gotten enough bed rest, but I think her plan is to be at the SAGs tomorrow,” Cohen said.
Tonight’s SAG Awards will mark Lawrence’s first major awards season head-to-head with Zero Dark Thirty’s Jessica Chastain. Their nominations (and wins) have previously been split in the comedy and drama categories, respectively. Marion Cotillard, Helen Mirren and Naomi Watts are also contending for the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role award.
She will face Chastain and Watts again, as well as Emmanuelle Riva and Quvenzhané Wallis, at the Oscars next month. The film is also up for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Lead Actor for Cooper, and Best Supporting Actor and Actress for Robert De Niro and Weaver.
