Even Hollywood gets sick sometimes.

On Saturday, Jennifer Lawrence was a no show when she was named Best Actress at the second annual Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts’ (AACTA) International Awards in West Hollywood, Calif.

Accepting the award on her behalf was her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Jacki Weaver, who announced that Lawrence was suffering from a case of pneumonia.

“Poor Jen is really sick. She really is sick,” Weaver said at the podium.

Weaver, along with their other co-star Robert De Niro, also took home awards for Best Supporting Actress and Actor, while Bradley Cooper lost the Best Actor prize to Lincoln’s Daniel Day-Lewis.

Lawrence’s illness comes just two weeks after the 70th Golden Globe Awards, where she announced she had the flu.

“I don’t want to shake your hand, I have the flu! Sorry!” she told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet while donning a gorgeous Dior haute couture gown.

Let’s hope Lawrence has a fast recovery, otherwise she may also have to skip Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles. The 22-year-old actress is both a nominee and a presenter.

Get well soon, Jennifer.

Reps for Lawrence did not return requests for comment by deadline.
