101 Of J. Law's Accomplishments In 2015

by Caitlyn Callegari

You know what my favorite thing about the new year is? Looking back on the year past and seeing how far I’ve come in a considerably short amount of time. But this isn’t about me. No, right now I'm reflecting on all of Jennifer Lawrence’s accomplishments in 2015. Because let’s be real guys, it was a banner year for her. Not that it isn’t always, but this one seemed especially good.

To further perpetuate the most cliché but true Hunger Games/Alicia Keys joke of all time, this girl is most definitely on fire. I am sorry, OK? But I had to. Career-wise and personally, Lawrence has made real strides and just about everyone has noticed. But I’m not quite sure they’ve taken literal note of them. So, I’ve decided that I am going to be the Jennifer Lawrence historian of 2015, because us fans need documentation of all of J. Law’s prolific and continued greatness. This scribe is happy to do the dirty work for you because I love and appreciate the 25-year-old actress that much.

Here are 101 of Lawrence's accomplishments from 2015. (And I have a feeling 2016 is going to be even better for her and by association, us.)

1. Concluding the mega successful Hunger Games movie franchise

2. Speaking out on behalf of women in America with her pay gap essay

3. Um, wearing this dress:

54. Honoring her morals

The Hollywood Reporter relays that Lawrence said this about her sex scene with Chris Pratt,

I got really, really drunk. But then that led to more anxiety when I got home because I was like, "What have I done? I don't know." And he was married. And it was going to be my first time kissing a married man, and guilt is the worst feeling in your stomach. And I knew it was my job, but I couldn't tell my stomach that. So I called my mom, and I was like, "Will you just tell me it's OK?" It was just very vulnerable. And you don't know what's too much. You want to do it real, you want everything to be real, but then … That was the most vulnerable I've ever been.

55. Speaking openly about her morals in a business that might not exactly embrace them

56. Making public speaking seem fun and easy

She said in an interview with David O. Russell and TimesTalk,

It's not a sad thing to be alone. I think what I was trying to get across was that I don't feel a lack of something not being in a relationship. I don't feel like there is a hole to be filled... An emotional hole to be filled. My dad's here!

62. Looking this good at the Joy premiere
