Spike TV have announced the SCREAM Awards nomination’s and X Men First Class has been nominated for quite a few but most of the categories its in; its against Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 but we can still hope for a few wins.
Jennifer is nominated for Best Fantasy Actress along with the likes of Natalie Portman, Nela Headey and Penelope Cruz.
Again the SCREAM Awards show will be the same as last year and will also continue featuring exclusive world premieres from some of the most anticipated movies of 2012; so hopefully we might see some more The Hunger Games videos!!
The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is making more and more headlines these days, as the March 23rd release of the movie gets closer and closer. And now she’s featured in the number one spot on Men’s Health magazine’s “101 Hottest Women of 2011″issue.
1. Jennifer Lawrence
We freely admit there aren’t many women who could turn us on while covered head to toe in blue paint—it’s just not our thing—and fewer still who could arouse us with little more than a bow and arrow, yet 20-year old Oscar-nominee Lawrence does both as Mystique in X-Men: First Class and as Katniss Everdeen in next year’s hotly-anticipated Hunger Games.
It’s visually stylish blockbuster hits like X-Men: First Class that offer the most interesting bonus features come DVD/Blu-Ray release time, because production secrets are aplenty. The movie is available for retail purchase from September 9, and with it’s cornucopia of special-effect laden mutant goodness comes a bevy of extras, including an eight part behind-the-scenes featurette that offers fans a closer look at the making of the film, from pre-production to post.
One such featurette spotlights star of the upcoming Hunger Games adaptation Jennifer Lawrence, who played shapeshifter Mystique in the movie, and the labour-of-love process involved in bringing the character’s look to life. You can check this post for more info on this feature.

Director Gary Ross leads MTV News through some of hot topics surrounding the highly anticipated adaptation.
If you thought our “Hunger Games” exclusives would end with the sneak peek Jennifer Lawrence introduced during Sunday’s VMAs, you are in for a pleasant surprise! MTV News teamed up with director Gary Ross in order to shed some insight into the teaser trailer and his vision for the highly anticipated film. And although Ross couldn’t reveal too much about his plans for Katniss and the Capitol, we were able to get him to answer a few burning questions:
What’s the Status of the Score?
“T-Bone [Burnett] and Danny [Elfman] haven’t really started working yet. We’ve all begun working together. We’ve all begun discussing music, pulling references, going through the initial process you go through. Music can actually affect the movie more than anything else. It establishes the tone. It literally can change the way you feel or perceive a movie. That’s a very long discussion that happens between me, T-Bone and Danny, and that’s already begun. Danny was out last week. T-Bone’s been out three times. We’ve begun this conversation of trying to understand what this is musically. But that’s not going to bear fruit for a while.”
How Did Jennifer Train for the Role of Katniss?
“It’s an intensely physical movie. Someone said Jen is in 110 percent of the movie, which is really true. She works every day, all day. It’s a very physically demanding thing that she’s doing. She did train really, really rigorously. She worked with an athletic trainer, someone who conditions athletes in Los Angeles. She had intense archery training. So she’s had a very rigorous athletic conditioning program.”
Watch as the lovely Jennifer Lawrence is transformed into the scaly blue mutant Mystique, in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video from X-Men: First Class.
In this sneak peek from the special features included inside the movie’s DVD and Blu-Ray release, you can watch a team of 6 make-up artists airbrush on the scaly blue sheath that is Mystique’s very thin costume. We have a hard time imagining standing still for seven hours, only to work a full day on set directly afterwards. Still, we’d argue it was worth it, Raven’s the young blue hide in this 1960s mutant period piece was spectacular.
My friend Christine made two new matching themes for our main site and gallery! As you can see yourselves she is extremely talented and I was really excited too see the final result (which is absolutely stunning imo). I also started working on updating the site’s pages, adding extended info about each of Jen’s projects so check often for new stuff.
I got the high definition version of the “Hunger Games” teaser presentation but the actual trailer is still not good quality. I capped it and added it in the gallery already and if I come across a better version I’ll replace the captures with better ones. For now, enjoy the epicness:
As we were expecting MTV’s VMAs aired the first “The Hunger Games”Teaser Trailer presented by Jennifer. She unfortunately is too busy filming this movie and she wasn’t able to attend the event. Check the video bellow. Will post a better version plus captures soon:
Don’t forget to tune into the VMA awards tonight were Jennifer and Suzanne Collins will present an exclusive clip of The Hunger Games. Feel free to comment on what you think and maybe what you are most excited for!
