Congratulation on you third Oscar nomination, Jennifer Lawrence!

"I have never studied acting, yet the very first time I went for an audition and did a cold reading, I surprised everyone with my honesty and transparency. They told me that I could play any part, because I do not have walls, I do not place obstacles between myself and the character I have to play". 


I want to tell the rebels that I am alive. That I’m right here in District Eight, where the Capitol has just bombed a hospital full of unarmed men, women and children. There will be no survivors. I want to tell the people that if you think for one second the Capitol will treat us fairly if there’s a cease-fire, you’re deluding yourself. Because we know what they are and what they are. THIS IS WHAT THEY DO. 

President Snow says he’s sending us a message? Well, I have one for him. You can torture and bomb us and burn our districts to the ground. Fire is catching! And if we burn, you burn with us!
