Jennifer Lawrence

Academy Award nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence will be given the Outstanding Performer of the Year Award during this year’s Santa Barbara Film Festival, executive director Roger Durling announced Tuesday afternoon. Recognized for her work in The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook, Lawrence will receive her award on February 2 at the Arlington Theatre.

“Ms. Lawrence impressed us earlier this year in The Hunger Games, but has now left us moonstruck with her career-defining performance in Silver Lining Playbook — recalling classic turns by Lombard, Stanwyck, and Colbert,” said Durling in a press release. “Naming her our Outstanding Performer of the Year is an understatement.”

Film Festival tickets and passes are available at and (805) 963-0023.
