'Saturday Night Live' Recap: Jennifer Lawrence Rips Fellow Oscar Nominees (VIDEOS)
The New Year's first episode also featured Katniss and Peeta; The Lumineers served as musical guest.
Jennifer Lawrence served up some serious trash talk on Saturday Night Live this weekend -- but before the headlines start, it was all for the first-time host’s opening monologue.
“One thing happened at the [Golden] Globes that I need to clarify,” the newly-minted winner told the audience.
“During my acceptance speech I said, ‘I beat Meryl,’ which is a quote from themovie The First Wives Club. But which some people took me as trash talking Meryl Streep . . . I would never trash talk any of my fellow nominees at the Golden Globes.
“But the Oscars are another story.”
The 22-year-old went on to call Jessica Chastain “more like Jessica ain’t gonna win an Oscar on my watch.”Naomi Watts, Lawrence said, “You were in The Impossible. You know what else is impossible? You beating me on Oscar night.”
Lawrence also made fun of her own -- as in her own movie character from The Hunger Games. In the nearly five-minute sketch, Katniss, Peeta (Killam) and Seneca Crane (Bill Hader) hold a press conference following the Games. (Skip the video if you haven’t seen the film).
The trio go on to answer questions about food, speaking to the other competitors after the game and the use of performance enhancing (and reducing) drugs.
Adam Levine will host next week’s Saturday Night Live, with musical guest Kendrick Lamar.
