Feb 17, 2014

Jennifer Lawrence's Oscar will be center stage at this year's Academy Awards party in her hometown.

While the stars in Hollywood are at the 86th Academy Awards next month, fans of actress Jennifer Lawrence can party at a Louisville Film Society fundraiser where the Oscar statuette she won last year will be on display.  Lawrence won for ``Silver Linings Playbook'' and is hoping for her second Oscar on March 2nd.

The film society's party on the same evening will offer a chance to bid on items Lawrence has autographed. George Clooney and other Kentucky-born actors will also be honored. The event will be at the film society's new home five blocks west of downtown.  Tickets are $50, which includes a one-year membership in the Louisville Film Society. Food, adult beverages and a red carpet start at 7 p.m. EST.
