Jennifer Lawrence and Anna Kendrick are among the leading ladies who have been named in GQ Magazine’s Year in Babes list of 2013.

The editors of the men’s publication have honored some of entertainment’s most-wanted women, including 23-year-old Lawrence, who was given the title of Sexiest (Possibly Fake) Pratfall of the Year, referring to her trip up the stairs as she received her Best Actress Oscar earlier this year.

Twilight star Kendrick was given the accolade for Song of the Year From a Movie We Watched on an Airplane, thanks to her single “Cups,” which was a chart hit in America this year.

Others who made the list include Elisabeth Moss for Foreign Accent of the Year, thanks to her convincing New Zealand accent in TV mini-series “Top of the Lake,” Keri Russell and Kerry Washington were named Hot-Flawed-Female Leads of the Year for their roles in “The Americans” and “Scandal” respectively, and comedienne Sarah Silverman was named The Never Funnier Comedy Queen of the Year.
