The credits continue to add up for Jennifer Lawrence.
The Best Actress Academy Award winner, 23, just shot a cameo for the sequel to the Farrelly brothers' 1994 hit, Dumb and Dumber, starring Jim Carrey and recent Emmy winner Jeff Daniels, The Hollywood Reporter says.
According to the report, the starlet spent one day on the set of Dumb and Dumber To, in which she supposedly plays a young version of Kathleen Turner's character, Fraida Feltcher.

After 19 long years, they're back – and looking dumber than ever: Lloyd and Harry, the characters, uh, immortalized by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in the original Dumb and Dumber movie.
And guess what? They clearly haven't gotten any brighter.
"How Roland Rolls comes out TODAY but it may be a little too sophisticated for Lloyd and Harry! Yep ... THEY'RE BAAAAA ...," Carrey, 51, wrote on both Twitter and WhoSay Tuesday.

How surprised was Jeff Daniels to win his first Emmy?
"I heard my name, and I go, 'Oh, that's what it sounds like when you win,' " Daniels, who won for his lead role as the self-righteous anchor Will McAvoy on The Newsroom, told reporters at HBO's afterparty on the Plaza of the Pacific Design Center, Sunday. "You hear your name just like that. 'Well, I won!' "
Going into the ceremony, the favorite appeared to be Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, who had won for the past three years. When Daniels's name was announced instead, reported The New York Times, "There were audible gasps of 'Whoa!' and 'What?' in the auditorium."

Late into the 65th annual Emmys ceremony Sunday on CBS, host Neil Patrick Harris announced: "No one in America is winning their Emmy office pool."
If you did happen to win, you should consider a career in statistical forecasting. The awards were all over the place.
Of the night's many surprises, the biggest was in the category of best actor. Academy voters for once decided not to give the prize to Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston – but instead of rewarding Mad Men's Jon Hamm, the perennial also-ran, they chose Jeff Daniels of HBO's The Newsroom. Perhaps they concluded that Hamm is already lousy with nominations, and handsome as the devil, and that should hold him. Daniels is a fine actor, as you'll discover if you catch just about any of his many performances of the past three decades, but The Newsroom's first season was a pounding surf of angry, righteous yammering. Oh well.
Here's what else the Emmys got right and wrong:

You've seen her in Superbad, The House Bunny and Zombieland, but now, Emma Stone is taking on a more complicated leading role in the dark comedy-drama, Paper Man.
Stone, 21, plays a teenager who forms an unlikely friendship with a struggling, 40-something writer played by Jeff Daniels. "I've never done a movie like that, and I probably never will again," says the actress. And when it comes to her fellow costar Ryan Reynolds – who plays Daniels's superhero imaginary friend, Captain Excellent – she tells PEOPLE he's "awesome."
Here are five more need-to-know things about the hot actress:

Music and laugher kicked off the 2010 Academy Awards from Hollywood's Kodak Theatre. In a non-traditional first, the show actually opened with the 10 Best Actor and Actress nominees introduced alphabetically before escorts rose from the audience and guided them to their seats.
Then the fun began.
Neil Patrick Harris, who hosted the Tonys and Emmys last year, delivered the show's opening musical number, "No One Wants to Do It Alone," essentially setting the stage for hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin – who spent their opening dialogue poking fun at the top nominees who had just been seated.
"There's that damn Helen Mirren," said Martin – prompting Baldwin to say, "Steve, that's Dame Helen Mirren."

The votes are in, the pre-parties are in full swing, and all of Hollywood is hoping it won't rain: The 82nd Annual Academy Awards are just a day away! PEOPLE movies editor Samantha Miller takes a look at who will – and who should – take home Oscar gold Sunday night.
Nominees: Avatar, The Blind Side, District 9, An Education, The Hurt Locker, Up, Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire, A Serious Man, Inglourious Basterds, Up in the Air
Ten movies were nominated this year, but the biggest race has narrowed to two – and it's a down-to-the-wire thriller. In one corner, there's Avatar, which blew away box office records and renewed audiences' excitement about going to the movies. Its wondrous special effects made us all feel like kids again, from the blockbuster battles to the smallest touches (loved the seeds that floated like tiny jellyfish). Meanwhile, the indie Iraq War tale The Hurt Locker is every bit as thrilling as its behemoth rival. The drama about a bomb-disposal squad delivers nail-biting tension, magnetic performances, and a provocative portrait of men under pressure that sticks with you like desert grit. Hurt Locker deservedly snapped up many of the pre-Oscar awards, so the odds are in its favor. For the biggest prize of all, though, with millions of fans watching, it's hard not to pull for the big, bold Avatar, for the way it reinvented how we see movies.
SHOULD WIN: Avatar
WILL WIN: The Hurt Locker

Who knew how far $2 could go? Gabourey Sidibe's mom, who used to pay her daughter that amount each day to attend school, does now.
"I saved up my money for a week so I could see Welcome to the Dollhouse," Sidibe, the Independent Spirit Awards' best female lead winner, said in her beaming acceptance speech Friday night. She excitedly explained that it was the first film that made her think: "I could do that." A notion that gave birth to her own independent spirit and an Oscar-nominated performance in her first film, Precious.
Her costar Mo'Nique credited their "low-budget, independent film's" leaders for teaching her how to bring her A-game and score yet another trophy this awards season for best supporting female.
But it wasn't all about the best feature film of the year, Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire. Crazy Heart star Jeff Bridges continued his winning streak for best male lead, exclaiming to his wife that his Spirit award trophy would "really tie the room together!" He explained to PEOPLE after that it was his "little nod to The Dude."
