Jennifer Lawrence found it "surprising" to win against her pal Amy Schumer in the Best Actress category in a Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical) at the Golden Globes on Sunday (10.01.16)
Jennifer Lawrence was "really surprised" to win the Best Actress award for a Motion Picture Comedy at the Golden Globes on Sunday (10.01.16) over her friend Amy Schumer.
The 25-year-old actress picked up the accolade for her part in 'Joy' at the ceremony held in The Beverly Hills Hilton, Los Angeles, but was not expecting to bag the prize over her good pal and the 'Trainwreck' comedian, 34.
Asked whether she felt "bad" for winning, Jennifer shared: "She (Amy) is gonna be fine. It wasn't a matter of feeling bad, because she's funny and hilarious and will win many things. I really expected Amy to win, so this was very truly surprising for me. I was just really surprised."
'Joy' is based on the central character of the same name, who found a business dynasty and becomes a boss of her family and her enterprises, but faces betrayal and treachery in her personal and work life, whilst Amy received critical acclaim for her movie 'Trainwreck', for which she wrote the screenplay and starred as the promiscuous magazine writer Amy.
However, the women are penning a script together for a future comedy and the 'Hunger Games' star revealed they have a list of actors they plan to call on when they are ready to build the cast.
Speaking on the red carpet of the prestigious award ceremony, she quipped: "We're starting a gang. No, you know, it's a small business. It's like high school, and we're all staying at the same hotel. It's like when you work with people, it's a tiny pool."
