Jennifer Lawrence Makes Herself The Target On ‘SNL’

The Lumineers also continued their momentum with performances of their latest singles, including current hit 'Ho Hey.'

If there’s one thing viewers learned from the latest episode of “Saturday Night Live,” it’s that Jennifer Lawrence sure doesn’t mind poking fun at herself. As the host for the evening, the “Silver Linings Playbook” actress took multiple opportunities to make light of recent news headlines as well as “The Hunger Games” franchise.

Fresh off her Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical win at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Lawrence started strong with her opening monologue, which made fun of what some thought was a dis toward Meryl Streep during her ceremony acceptance speech. “I would never trash talk any of my fellow nominees at the Golden Globes, but the Oscars are another story,” she said with sass, before throwing jabs (and closing praise) at her fellow Oscar nominees, even including 9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis. “You think you can beat me? Whatchu talkin’ bout, Wallis? Also, the alphabet called. They want their letters back,” she told the audience. Much like the real Tommy Lee Jones during last Sunday’s award show, an impersonator in the crowd kept a poker face, at least for most of her jokes.
