Well, it happened again.

No, Jennifer Lawrence did not win an Academy Award this year. She lost Best Supporting Actress to Lupita Nyong'o of 12 Years a Slave.

But the star was getting out of her car in front of the red carpet last night when she tripped and fell over a cone.

You'll recall that Lawrence also fell at last year's ceremony as she was walking up to accept the trophy for Best Actress.

Take a look at the latest incident below, animated GIF style:

Five men are nominated for Best Actor this year and each gives a performance that is much better than alright... alright... alright.

There's Matthew McConaughey, who has officially shed his romantic comedy reputation and who also shed 40 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

There's Leonardo DiCaprio, who had us believing he really was snorting cocaine in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Bruce Dern tugged at our heartstrings in Nebraska, Christian Bale cracked us up in American Hustled (that hair!) and Chiwetel Ejiofor made us cry in 12 Years a Slave.

Matthew McConaughey
Matthew McConaughey has been nominated for hits first Oscar. It's well deserved, based on his role in Dallas Buyers Club.
