The battle for AP entertainer of the year came down to the Girl on Fire and the Queen of Twerk.

Jennifer Lawrence edged out Miley Cyrus by one vote in the Associated Press’s annual survey of its newspaper and broadcast members and subscribers for Entertainer of the Year.

There were 70 ballots submitted by U.S. editors and news directors. Voters were asked to consider who had the most influence on entertainment and culture in 2013.

Lawrence won 15 votes. Cyrus had 14. Netflix was a close third, earning 13 votes for altering the TV landscape with its on-demand format and hit original series.

But Lawrence – who started the year with an Academy Award for best actress, fueled a box-office franchise as The Hunger Games heroine Katniss Everdeen, and wrapped 2013 with a critically acclaimed performance in American Hustle that just earned Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations – charmed fans everywhere with her candid sincerity.

She was also a fashion darling – a muse for Dior – who made headlines with her pixie haircut.

Lawrence declined comment for this story.
