Jennifer Lawrence gets nominated for pretty much everything all the time. That's just one of those strange JLaw facts that people have come to accept. The top three things we can pretty much guarantee when JLaw shows up: She will fall over or break something. There will be at least one inappropriate source of laughter. And some way, somehow, she will be nominated for an award. So it was no surprise when her name was on another list of nominees.
But this time fans are heated. JLaw's role in Mother! earned her a nomination for a Razzie — for worst actress.
Her fans were really heated about it.
Razzies need to re-evaluate their nominations because Jennifer Lawrence’s preform in mother! was what made the movie bearable and somewhat enjoyable and arguably best performances she has given. They’re taking out the movie on the lead actress. No fair.— Ramon (@ludwigie) January 23, 2018
That’s messed up. She gave a beautiful performance.— Andrew Watches Movies (@AndrewWatchesTV) January 22, 2018
mother! has plenty of problems, but Jennifer Lawrence's performance is not one of them. A Razzie nomination reflects poorly on the awards, not her.— Chris Schilling (@schillingc) January 22, 2018
But maybe a Razzie isn't such a bad thing. She's certainly in good company. Some major names and pivotal films have been Razzie'd.
Really? That razzie for Lawrence is long overdue. I see it more as a career thing than the movie itself.— CHRIS (@10CHRIS6) January 22, 2018
Say what you will about mother! (it’s not for everyone) but no room at all to dismiss J Law’s performance. But then the Razzies once nominated Jack Nicholson for The Shining so 🙄— Cory Engle (@Engle_PHS) January 22, 2018
The Razzies once nominated Stanley Kubrick as Worst Director for THE SHINING, so...— Jesse Hawken (@jessehawken) January 22, 2018
