So my night has just been made: Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress! This is a bittersweet win, being that everyone in this category deserved ample recognition for their performances, but this is great news for the Kentucky native! The only thing I'm wondering is how she can go up from here. What happens when you win an Oscar at 22? Things turned out pretty well for Ben Affleck, who got an Academy Award for Good Will Hunting, but he's been in some stinkers in his day.
