Actress Jennifer Lawrence poses with her award for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in the film ''American Hustle'' backstage at the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills puma creepers red australia , California January 12, 2014.
Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence won the Golden Globe for best supporting actress on Sunday for her role as the loopy wife of a con man in "American Hustle," the first major honour of the inaugural ceremony in the 2014 Hollywood awards season.

"American Hustle," a romp through 1970s corruption in New York, is one of the frontrunners for the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards, an important but not entirely accurate barometer for the film industry's highest honours puma creepers black australia , the Academy Awards to be held on March 2.

Lawrence gave a breathless acceptance speech, thanking the film's director, David O. Russell, for making her career what it is today after she won a best actress Oscar last year for his previous film, "Silver Linings Playbook."

"I don't know why I'm so scared ... I'm sorry I'm shaking so much. Don't ever do this again," Lawrence said puma creepers beige australia , kicking off the show hosted by comic actors Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

"American Hustle" leads nominees with seven nods along with "12 Years a Slave," the brutal depiction of pre-Civil War slavery. They are competing for best motion picture in different categories, comedy or musical and drama, respectively.

"Gravity," starring Sandra Bullock as an astronaut lost in space and life, also ranks high in experts' predictions and could give "12 Years a Slave" a challenge for the night's most coveted award puma creepers white australia , best drama.

The Golden Globes, under the purview of some 90 journalists in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, have outsized clout in the awards race as buzz around these first honours influences members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in their voting for the Oscars.

Oscar nominations will be announced on Thursday, but voting has already concluded. The Globes have a mixed record when it comes to predicting the Oscar best picture, though last year's best drama winner, "Argo puma creepers pink australia ," did go on to win the Academy Award for best movie.


The Golden Globes are also the opening salvo for red carpet fashion, and this year Hollywood's leading ladies appeared to favour shimmery champagne, silver and gold, along with bright reds and black lace for their gowns.

This 2014 awards season will recognize a very good year for film, both commercially and critically. North American box office receipts totalled a record $10.9 billion in 2013 and top performers went beyond the typical blockbuster action movies to include acclaimed films such as "Gravity."

Sunday night could also boost the fortunes of smaller films that have fared well among critics, including Joel and Ethan Coen's paean to 1960s folk music "Inside Llewyn Davis puma creepers bordeaux australia ," Spike Jonze's quirky computer-age romance "Her," and Alexander Payne's homage to the heartland "Nebraska."

The HFPA will honour Woody Allen with the Cecil B DeMille award recognizing outstanding contribution to the entertainment field. Allen, famously averse to awards shows, is not expected to collect the honour, but one of his favourite actresses, Diane Keaton , may stand in for him.

SYDNEY, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- The race to catch China's groundbreaking solar energy research just got a lot hotter, with a team from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney, this week taking out the global industry equivalent of the Oscars.

Professor Stuart Wenham and his team at the UNSW, were already flying close to the sun in May last year, when they discovered hydrogen atoms could counter defects in silicon cells within solar panels puma creepers rihanna australia , delivering improvements in photovoltaic panel design that had not been expected for another decade.

The process makes cheap silicon "better than the best-quality material," according to the head of UNSW's photovoltaics (PV) center of excellence, Professor Stuart Wenham. This garnered his team the 560,000 AU dollar A. F. Harvey Engineering Research Prize from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

IET President Barry Brooks said that Professor Wenham and his team played a pivotal role in the wide scale development of silicon solar cell technology.

"His pioneering research and internationally recognized leadership in the field have enabled commercial exploitation of the technology for the benefit of the global community seeking renewable energy solutions at affordable prices," Brooks said.

"He is a truly deserving recipient of the IET A. F. Harvey Engineering Prize and an inspiration to all engineers."

As a result of the Wenham's hydrogenation process, ordinary silicon can achieve astonishingly high-performance equivalent to high-purity puma creepers australia , commercial grade silicon.

Cell performance can be raised "to make it just as good as if they'd used very expensive material," Wenham told Xinhua.

Already worth about 100 billion AU dollars a year, the solar industry is expected to swell to about 140 billion AU dollars by 2018, according to estimates published last year by Transparency Market Research.

Installed PV capacity likely topped 100 GW, worldwide, in the March 2013 quarter vans classic slip on australia , according to the International Energy Agency.

But the race to capture the power of the sun already has a clear leader.

China alone has over 400 PV companies. In 2012 China installed 5 GW of solar panel capacity. By 2012 8.3 GW of photovoltaics contribute towards power generation in China, Australia by comparison has an installed capacity of 2.4 GW.

Some forecast project global capacity will more than triple by the end of the decade.

At present, the best commercial solar cells convert between 17 percent and 19 percent of the sun's energy into electricity.
