LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jennifer Lawrence will help announce this year’s Academy Awards nominees.

The 21-year-old actress will join Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Tom Sherak at the nominations announcement on Jan. 24.

Lawrence earned her first Oscar nomination last year for “Winter’s Bone.” She stars in the anticipated adaptation of “The Hunger Games,” set for release in March.

Sherak and Lawrence will announce 10 of Oscar’s 24 categories at the early-morning press conference.

The 84th annual Academy Awards will be presented on Feb. 26.
