Jennifer Lawrence may have wrestled Lupita Nyong'o for her best supporting actress trophy after this year's Academy Awards, but the "American Hustle" star and nominee probably didn't even expect to win the category.

"I was very happy I voted for Lupita," Lawrence said. "It's beautiful when you watch something good happen to somebody when it's well deserved."

Nyong'o won an Oscar for her role in Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave," which also took home best picture honors at this year's ceremony. Lawrence may not want to be a GIF anymore, but this is what her reaction to Nyong'o winning the award looked like:


Woo, indeed. For more on Lawrence, head to Marie Claire.
