The audience at the Academy Awards on Sunday gave Jennifer Lawrence a standing ovation as she went on stage to accept her first ever Oscar: Best Actress in a Leading Role.

Ben Affleck 'Argo' Acceptance Speech, Oscars 2013 VIDEO

Her role as Tiffany in Silver Linings Playbook made her a contender in the category that included fellow nominees Jessica Chastain, Emmanuelle Riva, Naomi Watts and Quvenzhané Wallis. Lawrence stumbled as she went on stage to accept the award - she got caught in material from her dress and fell on the stairs on her way to the stage - and was offered assistance by Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman.

However, she handled the situation as a professional and composed herself enough to give an acceptance speech in which she began by calling the other woman in the category "magnificent" and "incredible" before thanking her film's entire cast, crew and her family.

She also joked about her fall, telling the audience, "You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell...and that's really embarrassing, but thank you."

Backstage, a member of the press asked her about her fall and what happened. Lawrence responded with "What do you mean, what happened? Look at my dress. I tried to walk up stairs in this dress. That's what happened. I think I just stepped on the fabric and they waxed the stairs."

Lawrence took home a Golden Globe earlier in the year for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook. Her first Oscar nomination was in 2011 in the category of Best Actress in a Leading Role for Winter's Bone.

Riva at the age of 85 became the oldest Best Actress nominee in the Academy's history. At the opposite end of the spectrum, Wallis, 9, became the youngest ever Best Actress Oscar nominee for her performance in the end of the world movie Beasts of the Southern Wild, which also garnered a nod for its first time director Benh Zeitlin.

The last time Watts was nominated for an Academy Award was in 2004. She received a Best Actress nomination for her role as a grieving mother in 21 Grams.

Watch Lawrence's acceptance speech from the 85th Annual Academy Awards below.
