More information about Final Jeopardy:
Jennifer Lawrence’s first two Oscar nominations came for the 2010 film Winter’s Bone and the 2012 film Silver Linings Playbook, winning for the latter. She then received a third nomination (Best Supporting Actress, for American Hustle) at the age of 23. She was also the highest-paid actress in the world in 2015 and 2016, thanks to her role (among others) as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games films.
Of course, Jeopardy! had no idea that the news was going to break over the weekend, but Jennifer Lawrence is in the news early this week as being one of the A-list stars currently suing disgraced Harvey Weinstein’s company over unpaid royalties.
