Every once in awhile, a star comes along at a young age and truly captivates the world.
This past year, it was Jennifer Lawrence, a goofy 22-year-old from Kentucky who proved she can right up there with the best of them.
In fact, many are predicting that she’ll win the Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook on Sunday.
But no matter what happens, we thought now might be a good time to celebrate how awesome she truly is, in a way that one can only tell stories on the Intenret now: through GIFs.
