Jennifer Lawrence provided the 2024 Golden Globes with one of its funniest and most unforgettable gags. As the award for best actress in a motion picture comedy or musical was being announced, the Oscar winner mouthed “If I don’t win, I’m leaving!” direct to the camera when her nomination was said. Lawrence was nominated in the category for her performance in the R-rated comedy “No Hard Feelings.”
Emma Stone ended up winning the Golden Globe for her performance in “Poor Things.” Stone and Lawrence are close friends, and Lawrence stood up and cheered when Stone’s name was announced as the winner. Additional nominees in the category were Fantasia Barrino for “The Color Purple,” Natalie Portman for “May December,” Alma Pöysti for “Fallen Leaves” and Margot Robbie for “Barbie.”
The 2024 win marked the second Golden Globe win of Stone’s career following “La La Land” in 2017. She ended up winning the Oscar for best actress thanks to “La La Land.” Stone was also Golden Globe nominated this year in the best performance in a drama television series thanks to her work on the Showtime series “The Curse.” In past years, Stone was nominated at the Globes for “Easy A,” “Birdman,” “Battle of the Sexes,” “The Favourite” and “Cruella.”
As for Lawrence, she starred in “No Hard Feelings” as a Montauk Uber driver facing bankruptcy who accepts a Craigslist ad to date and seduce an awkward 19-year-old (Andrew Barth Feldman) because his helicopter parents don’t want him leaving for college as a virgin. The plot was based on a real-life Craigslist ad that director Gene Stupnitsky once discovered.
“Gene read the Craigslist ad to me, and I died laughing,” Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly last year before the comedy’s theatrical release. “I thought it was hilarious, but there wasn’t a script or anything. I just thought he had a funny idea. And then a couple years later, he handed me the funniest script I’ve ever read in my life.”
