The head of the Kentucky Derby Festival says Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence won't make it to this year's Pegasus Parade to serve as grand marshal. But, CEO Mike Berry says, there's a silver lining: Lawrence has a standing invitation for any year she can make it.

Lawrence, a 22-year-old Louisville native, won an Oscar this year for her role in "Silver Linings Playbook" and received a nomination in 2011 for "Winter's Bone."

Berry told WLKY-TV in Louisville the organization asked even before this year's Academy Awards ceremony.

Berry says Lawrence has been in such demand that she hasn't been available for the parade.

Berry hopes she has time another year to serve as grand marshal.
