Infographic shows J-Law is connected to every 2014 Oscar nominee


Yeah, yeah, we know the Oscars are over for another year, but that doesn't mean we have to stop talking about them, right guys? RIGHT?

Hopefully you're not completely tired of Academy Awards news just yet, as we've got an interesting infographic we want to share with you, which shows how actress Jennifer Lawrence is connected to every, yes every, nominee at this year's Oscars, by six degrees of separation.

At the top level, she's connected to Billy Ray as he wrote the screenplay for The Hunger Games, he then links Katniss Everdeen to Captain Phillips, for which Ray also wrote the screenplay. This then means she's connected to best supporting actor, Barkhad Abdi.

Further along, she's connected to all her American Hustle co-stars, who were all nominated, as well as the director David O'Russell, who links the actress to Meryl Streep as he directed Doubt. Amy Adams then links J-Law to Spike Jonze for Her.

Michael Fassbender, nominated for the Supporting Actor award for his role in 12 Years a Slave, stars with Jennifer Lawrence in X-Men: First Class, so that's another one on the list.

Lawrence herself was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in David O'Russell's American Hustle, but lost out to 12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong'o.

However, she did win the Best Actress gong in 2013 for her role as the recently widowed Tiffany Maxwell, in Silver Linings Playbook.

See the rest of the nominees and how they're connected to Jennifer below.
