Los Angeles, Feb 16 (IANS) Jennifer Lawrence, who stands a chance to win the best actress Academy award for her work in "Silver Linings Playbook", doesn't want to think about what it might be like to win the coveted prize.

The Oscar ceremony is to take place here Feb 24.

The 22-year-old admits she would love to win, but she is trying to keep her excitement in check.

"It's very important to separate work from your personal life. If you don't separate it, then it blends into your personal life. For my career - yes I hope, knock on wood - that I win, but I don't have a personal interest in it," contactmusic.com quoted Lawrence as saying.

"I am not going to cry myself to sleep if it doesn't happen. I'm still going to be happy, I'm still going to be me, I'm still going to have my friends and I will be fine," she added.

Nevertheless, she was pleasantly surprised upon getting nominated. It is her second nomination after she was once in the run for the award for "Winter's Bone" in 2011.

She is also proud to be included in a list that also features talents like Jessica Chastain, Emmanuelle Riva, Quvenzhane Wallis and Naomi Watts.

"It's really exciting, but it never sinks in. I am so in the zone when I am working that when you hear it, you are like 'Wow'. I know what an honour that is," she added.

Lawrence has already clinched prizes for her portrayal of a sex addict in the offbeat comedy "Silver Linings Playbook", including the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award for best actress.
