Two days after the Oscars, we're still talking about Jennifer Lawrence's epic fall. Just in case you've been on a different planet, here's what happened:

Jennifer's announced as Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook. She's all excited, as are her mother and co-star Bradley Cooper:

But she's in such a hurry to get to her Oscar that she trips over the huge skirt of her beautiful Dior dress:

Behind her, knights in shining armour Bradley Cooper and Hugh Jackman jump to their feet to help her up:

But she seems to be OK. That's a thumbs up sign:

And Jen makes a valiant recovery. In her speech, she jokes - "Thank you! These guys are just standing up because they feel bad that I fell, and it's really embarrassing! This is nuts.":

And Jen's fall reminded us of another famous fall just a couple of years ago. Sonakshi Sinha, fresh from the success of Dabangg, took a tumble on the catwalk at a jewellery show.



And just like Jennifer, Sonakshi also made light of it, saying: "I fell. So what?":



And if you think that was embarrassing, Jennifer and Sonakshi are in good company. Check out Madonna, Beyonce and Tyra flopping over:
