Jennifer Lawrence wins Best Actress at SAG Awards

Pneumonia stricken Jennifer Lawrence picked up the Best Actress in a Motion Picture gong at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles.

The 22-year-old star braved the ceremony - where she was presented with the award for her role in 'Silver Linings Playbook' - despite her illness but admitted she had been "highly contagious".

Speaking on the red carpet, she said: "Everyone is scared of me, I'm like, 'I'm fine'.

"I had walking pneumonia and it is highly contagious."

Jennifer wasn't the only star to be struck down with illness. Tommy Lee Jones, who won the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for 'Lincoln' was too sick to attend the ceremony.

'Lincoln' was one of the main winners on the night with Daniel Day Lewis taking home the Best Actor award.

Anne Hathaway followed up on her Golden Globes win with Best Supporting Actress for her role as Fantine in 'Les Miserables'.

Meanwhile, '30 Rock' tied for most awards with 'Lincoln', picking up the main comedy acting gongs for its stars Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey.

'Homeland's Claire Danes and 'Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston took home the acting awards for TV Drama while 'Downton Abbey' triumphed in the Outstanding Ensemble Cast, Television Series, Drama category.

There was some consolation for Ben Affleck after being snubbed for an Best Director Oscar nomination when his movie 'Argo' took home the Ensemble Cast, Motion Picture award.

Dick Van Dyke was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the awards.

The 87-year-old 'Night at the Museum' star - who has been working in Hollywood since the 60s - admitted to People.com before the event that he can't wait to accept the award at the star-studded 19th annual event in Los Angeles because it means a lot to be celebrated as an actor rather than an entertainer.

The 'Diagnosis Murder' star said: "This was a surprise. People think of me as a song and dance entertainer. To be accepted by my peers as an actor is really a thrill."

The actor also revealed that he will be celebrating his seven-year anniversary with his 41-year-old wife Arlene, who he first met at the 2006 SAG Awards, where she was working as a make-up artist.

He said: "There was something about her beautiful eyes,"

The couple married in a "spur of the moment" ceremony in Malibu, California, on February 29 last year.

'Mary Poppins' star Dick - who presented Mary Tyler Moore with the Lifetime Achievement award last year - was first married in 1948 to Margie Willett in a ceremony broadcast live on radio show 'Bride and Groom'. They have four grown up children together, but divorced in 1984 after a long separation.

The actor also had a relationship with actress Michelle Triola from 1976 until her death from lung cancer in 2009.
