Is Jennifer Lawrence On Her Way To Becoming A Bigger Star Than Kristen Stewart? Vote!

Mon, June 20, 2011 2:39pm EDT by 43 Comments

‘The Hunger Games’ and ‘X-Men’ star has already been invited to join the Motion Picture Academy and we’ve confirmed that Kristen Stewart is still not a member!

The Hunger Games movie hasn’t even come out yet and Jennifer Lawrence is already a household name! The actress is currently wowing theater-goers as Mystique in X-Men: First Class, she’s filming the coveted role of Katniss in North Carolina, and she has an Oscar nomination under her belt for Winter’s Bone. The Hunger Games trilogy has been described as the “new Twilight” and the movies are sure to skyrocket the main actors towards international fame, just as Twilight has done for Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner. But Jennifer has something that Kristen doesn’t — an invite to join the Motion Picture Academy!

HollywoodLife.com spoke to a rep from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences today, and they confirmed to us that Kristen Stewart has yet to be invited to become a member of the esteemed association. Jennifer was invited on Friday, although this does not automatically make her a member as she has to fill out an acceptance form. It is a big honor to be invited however, so it is assumed Jennifer will accept and join the esteemed members of Hollywood who vote for the Oscars!

By garnering an Oscar nomination, you are automatically considered for membership. But that isn’t the only way to be considered for an invitation. The Academy website explains: “Membership in the Academy is by invitation of the Board of Governors and is limited to those who have achieved distinction in the arts and sciences of motion pictures. A candidate must be sponsored by at least two members of the branch for which the person may qualify. Each proposed member must first receive the endorsement of the branch’s executive committee before his/her name is submitted to the Board.”

Are you surprised that Kristen has not been invited yet? Do you think that as Jennifer Lawrence picks up steam she’ll surpass Kristen Stewart in fame? Will The Hunger Games be bigger than Twilight? Express your thoughts below and cast your vote!

Please leave Kristen Stewart alone!!! She is just as good as Jenifer Lawrence and has recieved awards like: the BAFTA rising star award, Gotham award for best ensemble cast,milan international film festival award for best actress in “Welcome to the Rileys”,screen actors guild award for “into the wild” and has recieved various Young Artist Awards. In total Kristen Stewart has 18 award wins and 22 nominations.

Hollywood Studios don’t look at talent as much as profit.
Check IMDB for profit results on any Kristen Stewart movie released since Twilight brought her into the forefront. ALL HAVE LOST MONEY OR HAVE NOT EVEN BEEN DISTRIBUTED. The Runaways opened in only 244 theaters & the distribtors pulled out. Welcome To The Rileys came out in only 10 theaters. If the Twihards claim to be such fans of KS why don’t they support anything she does outside Twilight? Bottom line is her movies LOSE MONEY and as in any business studios won’t continue to back losing projects. Jennifer Lawrence’s movies so far have all made a profit and she seems to be a very talented actress. I believe she will continue to rise in popularity on sheer talent. She has been acting in both TV and films since she was 14 years old so she is not as “new” as you might think.

Jennifer Lawrence is lovely, talented (watch Winter’s Bone she’s marvelous in the film) btw, Jennifer has 6 films under her belt and has received great reviews for each. I will not put KS down because I know very little about her work. I do believe that Jennifer has a very bright fuure ahead of her and I love her interviews…she’s very honest and real. The Acacdemy invited her to join because she’s talented and well liked.

i really don’t understand why people hate kristen…? she’s so real! unlike most girls, she isn’t trying to be cute or trying hard to please people… sure she isn’t the lady type but that’s what she is! she isn’t pretending to be some one else she’s not! i think people under estimate her simply because of her choices in films but really can you imagine other actresses doing her roles? and instead to choosing some generic stuff, she chooses to do projects that are complicated, but unfortunately people find that boring just because they’re not big budget films… bella definitely wasn’t her greatest role but don’t judge her based on twilight alone… btw if you ask me, her awkwardness never existed before twilight… the reception was shocking, i wouldn’t blame her for feeling anxious… she’s used to making small films that people watch simply bcoz they want to and not because of the fame so twilight is definitely the turning point, both good and bad for her… I BET! IF kristen didn’t do twilight and instead be remembered as the kid who was in PANIC ROOM, (or any of her other films)people would be amazed by her and won’t be as judgmental!

All the Twilight fans commenting about how Jen can’t act, or she’s boring and whatnot! That’s your opinion as Twilight fans! I’m a Hunger Games fan, and I’m not gonna go around bashing on Kristen. I think Kristen is different from a lot of actresses in the sense that I don’t think the fame is going to her head. She’s not the best, but she’s certainly not the worst. Bottom line, Jennifer is a great actress and the comparisons are there to create news that really isn’t news.

I personally like Jennifer better, because I’ve seen more of her movies, but stop comparing The Hunger Games to Twilight! It’s like asking someone if they would rather have a sock or apple for Christmas! You could choose, but why would you? They’re so different!

Kristen is an awesome actress. Jennifer Lawrence i don’t even know who she is. So she can’t be that good. As far as Jennifer being at the Oscar’s who cares. The Oscar’s suck just like the Emmy’s. I would rather watch MTV Movie awards or the Scream Awards. They are the best award show’s on tv. So Kristen is def. better.

You’re being incredibly ridiculous. People don’t just dislike Kristen because of her attitude or medium acting skills. They don’t like her because awful fans like you inflate her bigger than she should be and demean other actors to make her look better. That’s very immature.

Just look at these two pictures. One of them is at the Oscars as a Best Actress nominee the other is at the MTV “Twilight” Movie Awards.

There’s your answer right there.

Kristen is a superb technician, but not a particularly innovate actress. Jennifer on the hand, can really act.

Omg. Please don’t act like Kristen is a good actress. If she wasn’t Bella, no one would care about her. Jennifer is actually talented and doesn’t stutter every time she opens her mouth or twitch and play with her hair.

@Rachel, I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, CentBuzz.com

I have watched almost all of her movies. Starting with Panic Room to Twilight. How many movies does this Jennifer have under her belt. One maybe. I think people don’t like her because she is a private person.There is nothing wrong with not wanting the paparazzi and fan’s in your face all the time.

Jennifer has at least 15 credits, 20 award nominations and 16 wins. And that “one movie” got her most of those awards and critical acclaim. For someone who only started working at all in 2006 and only started having big roles in 2008, I’d say that’s pretty darn good. So, I don’t think it’s right to belittle her resume like that.

This business is only adding to the completely unnecessary and ridiculous The Hunger Games vs. Twilight “rivalry” that shouldn’t and doesn’t even exist.

I don’t pay attenion to the award shows thety suck. The best award show’s that are on now are MTV movie awards and the scream awards. The others suck they never pick good actors to win the awards. So you telling me she has all thees nominations don’t mean crap to me because the award show are crap.

The difference between Kristin Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence is that Jennifer Lawrence can act. Obviously the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences agrees.

Jennifer is not bad actress, she is relativ good, but ordinary and average…
Winter’s Bon is so boring, the film is incomprehensible and deeply depressive
…Jennifers most Winter’s Bones co-actors were amateurs…she seemed so special, …
She’s near future is box office (X-Mens or Hunger games)
But, she as Mystique merge with the others include….

Kristen is genial as Melinda, Maya, Tracy, Georgia, Em, Joan, Mallory (she won won the award for Best Actress at the Milan International Film Festival, this festival very good fame in Europe)…she is perfekt for me….
and she as Marylou is genial, say the Critik
