Jennifer Lawrence kicked off her campaign for a fifth Oscar nomination on Thursday night by appearing at a screening of her new film 'Mother!' that was hosted by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

The 27-year-old actress was joined at the event, which was held at at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, by the film's director Darren Aronofsky, 48, who she began dating after they finished filming the project last year.
Lawrence and her new beau sat through the film's official Academy screening before taking to the stage for a Q&A session with the audience, where they were joined by producer Ari Handel and moderator Sara Wilkomerson.
It was during that chat with a room full of Oscar voters that Lawrence fired off one of her favorite gestures, throwing up a middle finger to the audience while recounting a story about the making of the film.
Aronofsky was certainly amused by the move, which caused him to break down in laughter as he listened to Lawrence speak.
Lawrence has long been a big fan of the middle finger salute, pulling it out on red carpets, during interviews and most frequently when encountering members of the paparazzi.
This is also not the first time that she has flipped off audience members at an official Academy event.
