Best Actress Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence had another eventful trip to the podium at last night’s ceremony when she tripped on the steps going up to collect her gong for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook.

In response to the standing ovation the 22-year-old received from the crowd Lawrence quipped "You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell over and that's embarrassing."

The actress was wearing a long pink full-skirted Dior gown which may have contributed to her being unsteady on her feet and it was up to Hugh Jackman to jump to her assistance.

This is not the first time the actress has had a wardrobe issue during awards season. At the Screen Actors Guild Awards her blue Dior dress seem to come apart as she walked to the podium. Later Dior explained that the dress was made in layers and she had just hitched up the outer layer.
