Jennifer Lawrence Battling Pneumonia

Jennifer Lawrence still managed to make it to the SAG Awards last night, despite battling a case of pneumonia. Wait, pneumonia's not like AIDS where you can catch it from a simple handshake, is it? Because maybe she should stay home, like she did Saturday night for the Australian Academy of Cinema Awards.

From the New York Daily News:

Lawrence received the best actress award, but co-star and Australian native Jacki Weaver appeared for her.

"I am going to accept this award on behalf of Jennifer," Weaver, a Oscar nominee in the supporting actress category, said. "She really wishes she could be here, but she is very ill."

One guest at the event said, "Everyone was shell-shocked at what Jacki said. With these ceremonies, when people claim to be ill sometimes there is doubt about how unwell someone really is."
