10. Jennifer Lawrence’s Acceptance Speech

Yes, she fell but Lawrence didn’t seem to care. She was t00 excited that she had just won Best Actress. She laughed it off by telling the audience she knew they were only standing for her because they felt bad for her. This made her even more lovable, if this is even possible.
