Jennifer Lawrence Trashes Her Oscar Rivals – for Laughs

How to get the jump on your sister Oscar nominees? Host Saturday Night Live – and come out punching.

That was Jennifer Lawrence's modus operandi this weekend, with the Silver Linings Playbook's Best Actress contender taking good-natured swipes at her competition during her silver-tongued opening monologue on the NBC comedy show.

About Jessica Chastain, she said: "In Zero Dark Thirty you caught Bin Laden. So what? In Winter's Bone I caught a squirrel, and then ate it."

Naomi Watts: You were in The Impossible. You know what else is impossible? You beating me on Oscar night."

Quvenzhané Wallis, the 9-year-old nominee for Beasts of the Southern Wild: "You think you can beat me? [In best Gary Coleman voice] 'What you talkin' 'bout, Wallis?' Also, the Alphabet called. It wants its letters back."

And Emmanuelle Riva, from the French film Amour: "An 85-year-old French lady. Um, yeah, I think I can take you."

Also in line for ribbing by the rest of the cast on the show, which featured The Lumineers as the musical guests, were disgraced athlete Lance Armstrong (played by Jason Sudeikis), reputed hoax victim Manti Te'o (Bobby Moynahan), outspoken Golden Globes honoree Jodie Foster (Kate McKinnon) and the scowling, Globes party-pooper Tommy Lee Jones (Bill Hader).

Though not personally at the end of a satirical sharp stick, Lawrence did tip her hat to her Hunger Games persona Katniss Everdeen by participating in a mock Post-Hunger Games press conference.

The running gag was how could Katniss go for Peeta (played by Taran Killam) because he's so short. The gamers were also asked if they used performance-enhancing drugs.

It is. Comments like that make people think you're a jerk and write you off. You may actually have an opportunity to educate someone and blow it. But whatever, you choose the way you you want to communicate.

you're so good at posting links as a way to avoid arguing and establishing your own opinion.

in a very general sense, all they were saying is that you should treat others the way you want to be treated. you're very rude for no reason and reaching so far out into space it's just not funny.

wowow ur obsession w/ me CUNTinues

1) posting links serves the purpose of makin sure ppl know im not talking out my ass. w/ stuff like RACISM... 4 whatever reason, ppl seem to need actual, tangible proof (such as sum article discussing "why x is racist") before they will accept what sum1 is saying

2) if ur a racist ur a douchebag. not rly that hard 2 understand

Lol it isn't, thanks, but I do appreciate some of his/her points/information.
lil_creamsoda 20th-Jan-2013 07:15 pm (UTC)
lmao classic "tone" argument.
disclosure 20th-Jan-2013 07:21 pm (UTC)
Oh geez, so people should just be able to speak rudely and we're never supposed to say anything about it? Never mind.
lil_creamsoda 20th-Jan-2013 07:31 pm (UTC)
You're not listening, though. He linked you to an article and everything, and you were still pretty dismissive. What else are they supposed to? No shade, but it's nobody's job to educate you or anyone else. This is the internet. And if you read about tone argument, that's it in a nutshell.

I did read it! I just said saying things like "accept it or be a douchebag" is an obnoxious comment that will end up turning people off when he's trying to educate with legitimate information. I guess it doesn't matter what I think but I think it's something to consider.
licorrice 21st-Jan-2013 08:49 pm (UTC)
the problem is that you're right, it doesn't matter what you think. by the time you wrote them off for calling you a douchebag, they had already written you off for not automatically understanding their daily life troubles of being the internet race police.

and lol at everyone else completely missing the point as well.

lolololol literally the LAST thing i care about is "internet race policing". u clearly do NOT know hew i am (despite ur weird0 obsession)
uglybunnie 21st-Jan-2013 03:37 am (UTC)
ew, wtf? You just said when minorities act like "a jerk" it gives white people the right to be racist. Seriously, read what you wrote. Also, it is no one's responsibility to educate you just fyi.
disclosure 21st-Jan-2013 06:04 am (UTC)
Yikes, I'm only replying to this to say that's not what I meant. I certainly don't think it's anyone's responsibility to educate me, goodness I forget how much ONTD reads into every comment. I did NOT say anyone has the right to be racist. But the mentality of "I'm gonna throw the correct info at you and if you don't immediately agree then FUCK YOU" really isn't going to help anything, anywhere.
