'Hunger Games' Star I'm Not Jealous of J-Law ... I'm PROUD!

Josh Hutcherson says he's absolutely THRILLED that his "Hunger Games" co-star Jennifer Lawrence crushed it at the Golden Globes this weekend ... but admits he's ready to score an award of his own.

Josh was strollin' around Beverly Hills yesterday ... and told us he was "very proud" when Will Ferrell announced J-Law as the Best Actress winner for her role in "Silver Linings Playbook."

In fact, Josh says he tried to call Jen to congratulate her on the win ... but she's too sick to talk ... possibly the result of standing too close to Hugh Jackman who was BRAGGING about his flu symptoms during the GGs.

Of course, there's no real way to prove Hugh infected Jennifer -- but we're totally blaming him anyway.

Get your flu shots people.
