Jennifer Lawrence Hosts SNL, Taunts Oscar Nominees [Video]


Jennifer Lawrence got a chance to show off her comedic chops last night when she hosted Saturday Night Live.

Lawrence, who is best known for dramatic roles in movies like The Hunger Games and Winter’s Bone, took to the stage last night to trash talk her fellow nominees.

Lawrence was criticized after her Golden Globe speech for taunting Meryl Streep when she accepted her award and yelled, “I beat Meryl.”

The actress, who said that the incident was blown out of proportion, used the line as the basis for her opening monologue.

Lawrence said:

“Jessica Chastain, more like Jessica ain’t gonna win no Oscar on my watch. In Zero Dark Thirty you hunt down Osama Bin Laden. So what, in Winter’s Bone I hunt down and kill a squirrel. Then eat it. Boo Yah.”

Grumpy Tommy Lee Jones also made an appearance during SNL last night.

Here’s the video of Jennifer Lawrence doing her opening monologue on Saturday Night Live.

Lawrence also made fun of The Hunger Games, The Hobbit, dog chefs and love correspondents during World War II.

Here is the full episode from NBC.
