Pneumonia stricken Jennifer Lawrence picked up Best Actress in a Motion Picture at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles last night. The 22-year-old star braved the ceremony - where she was presented with the award for her role in Silver Linings Playbook - despite her illness but admitted she had been "highly contagious." Speaking on the red carpet, she said: "Everyone is scared of me, I'm like, 'I'm fine.' I had walking pneumonia and it is highly contagious." Jennifer wasn't the only star to be struck down with illness. Tommy Lee Jones, who won the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for Lincoln was too sick to attend the ceremony. Lincoln was one of the main winners on the night with Daniel Day Lewis taking home the Best Actor award. Anne Hathaway followed up on her Golden Globes win with Best Supporting Actress for her role as Fantine in Les Misérables. There was some consolation for Ben Affleck after being snubbed for an Best Director Oscar nomination when his movie Argo took home the Ensemble Cast, Motion Picture award.
