LOS ANGELES (WDRB/AP) -- Louisville's Jennifer Lawrence has an Oscar to add to her growing trophy case.
Louisville native Jennifer Lawrence won the Best Actress Oscar at the Academy Awards for her performance as a young widower in "Silver Linings Playbook."
It's the first Oscar for the 22-year-old Lawrence, who was also nominated for "Winter's Bone" in 2011.
Fashion websites gave her high marks for the choice of her flowing, tiered dress. But the night wasn't perfect.
Lawrence tripped going up the stairs to accept the honor. As the crowd gave her a standing ovation, Lawrence joked, "You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell."
Backstage, she was candid about her trip, which was live for millions to see. "What was going through my mind when I fell down? A bad word. It begins with an "F," she joked.
WDRB Facebook fans are cheering for Lawrence.
Sherry writes, "(I) sure hope they make her grand marshal for this years Derby!!"
Kaye says, "What a way to represent Louisville, Kentucky. (She) made us proud!"
And Tanya added, "Even her fall was elegant."

The 85th Academy Awards aired live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles with host Seth MacFarlane.
