Jennifer Lawrence's endearing fall and candid Oscars acceptance speech were almost perfect, but the Silver Linings Playbook star forgot to thank two pretty important people.
Although the 22-year-old actress thanked Bradley Cooper, her parents and, of course, the Academy, she failed to mention Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell and producer Harvey Weinstein.
"In the whirlwind of last night, I was remiss to thank two incredibly important people to this film and in my life," she told Entertainment Weekly in a statement. She thanked Russell for "the most incredible experience of my life" and "for your genius, for your guidance, for teaching me things about myself and nurturing me to be a better actor."
She also thanked Weinstein for championing the film "from early days" and for his "passion and unyielding support [which] gave this film the opportunity to thrive and touch so many people."
"Thank you to both. I will never be able to forgive myself for such a brain fart but I hope that you both can," she added. "Obviously it was not on purpose, I couldn't remember what I had already said and my mind went completely blank–your brain does funny things during the most overwhelming moment of your life!"
We have a feeling that, despite this unintentional snub, they're still incredibly proud of Lawrence.
And another person who couldn't be happier for the Kentucky-born star? Her childhood pal, Andy Strunk, says he's been Lawrence's "No. 1 fan" for years. And in The Courier-Journal's heartwarming video, Strunk can barely contain his excitement as he celebrates Lawrence's win. He even, awesomely, does a victory dance for his friend of 12 years.
