The AP has named Jennifer Lawrence Entertainer of the Year for 2013. The American Hustle star beat out Bangerz singer Miley Cyrus by one vote.
Lawrence received 15 votes from editors and broadcast members, while Cyrus received 14 votes. Netflix came in third, with 13 votes.
The AP reports Lawrence just got both Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for her role in American Hustle, playing con artist Christian Bale’s wife.
She kicked off the year on the same note, with an Oscar for her role in another David O. Russell film Silver Linings Playbook. Lawrence is, of course, also the lead in the successful franchise The Hunger Games, based off of the best-selling books.
Meanwhile, Cyrus had a huge year with her controversial MTV Video Music Awards at the center of it all. She was definitely one of the most talked about entertainers of this year, albeit for different reasons than Lawrence.
