Jennifer Lawrence and Daniel Day Lewis triumph at the Screen Actors Guild Awards 2013

Silver Linings Playbook actress Jennifer Lawrence attended the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday to pick up her Best Actress gong, despite battling pneumonia.

Pneumonia stricken Jennifer Lawrence picked up the Best Actress in a Motion Picture gong at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 27).

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.

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.

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.
