Jennifer Lawrence has been named as 2013’s Celebrity of the Year by The Today Show – and rightfully so. Lawrence kicked off the year by tripping up the stairs to collect an Oscar for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook and finished off 2013 by earning award nominations for her supporting role in American Hustle, a film which reunited the Oscar winner with her Silver Linings Playbook director (David O. Russell) and co-star Bradley Cooper.
In addition, thanks in large part to her role as Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games franchise, Lawrence took the top spot on the box office money-maker poll, followed close behind by Sandra Bullock (Gravity, The Heat). Quigley Publishing Co’s been putting together the box office poll since 1932 which just so happens to be the last time two women finished in first and second place. According to Quigley’s poll, Bradley Cooper finished third, Tom Hanks was number four, and Denzel Washington came in fifth. Six through ten spots were taken by Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Jr, Hugh Jackman, Brad Pitt, and Melissa McCarthy.
The Associated Press also named Lawrence the Entertainer of the Year and she made it onto Barbara Walter’s annual 10 Most Fascinating People list.
