Jennifer Lawrence swiped a sensational Best Actress Oscar win in one of the most hard fought categories of the night, but couldn’t help tripping over when she went to collect her award!

The actress stumbled as she went up to accept her award, falling up the stairs and having to be helped by the gallant Hugh Jackman, she didn't seem to peturbed though, joking about it in her  acceptance speech.

Jen had been the favourite since the autumn to win the prize, but after Emmanuelle Riva (Amour) took a shock win at the BAFTAs it looked like she might lose out on the coveted trophy, but held on for her role in Silver Linings Playbook.

Playing a troubled widow who finds love with an equally troubled man (Bradley Cooper), Jen won the hearts of the Academy with her performance, as well as her growing band of fans around the globe.

Her speech was as ever that bit funnier than anyone elses, referencing her clumsiness by saying,"You guys are just standing up because I fell and you feel bad," and adding of the incident, "That was embarrassing".

She didn't forget though to wish her competitor Emmanuell Riva a happy birthday (she's 86), proving that even if things go badly wrong a little good humour can save the day.

Oh Jen, that's why we love you, but you'd better not be this clumsy in The Hunger Games!
