Other Controversial Jennifer Lawrence Acceptance Speech Moments

1. "What's the matter, Don Gummer? Can't you buy her a whole dress?" (Detroit Film Critics Society Awards, 12/14/12)

2. "You think that because I'm a movie star I don't have feelings, Meryl. Well you're wrong. I'm an actress. I've got all of them!" (Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards, 1/10/13)

3. "Guess what, Meryl? I'm a lesbian. A big one." (Houston Film Critics Society Award, 1/5/13)

6. "And once upon a time, you were a great actress, Meryl, you've even got an Oscar to prove it! You've spent your whole life with people sucking up to you, but I'm sure Anne Hathaway will agree with me when I say your perception of life is somewhat altered!" (Satellite Awards, 12/16/12)

I really hope the tag "SHE DID NOT MEAN TO DISS MERYL" gets used again.


Hairpin, get out of my brain. I just sent my mother a link in an e-mail, the subject of which was basically like "She was quoting First Wives Club, don't be offended!" because apparently, she was one of the people offended by what Jennifer Lawrence said.

Jane Marie

How did this quote get so much more flack than "Blergh?"


@Jane Marie I don't know! I thought the whole thing was really great, even before i realized it was a First Wives Club ref. Which made it better.


@Jane Marie Ugh, "blergh," that nearly made me change the channel. I stayed to see how much worse it could get and was rewarded with "thank you for the best string of yesterdays I have ever had!"

I gagged, sorry. I like Anne Hathaway, but this seemed just too rehearsed for an acceptance speech. Like, did she say this at the wrap party for Les Mis?

Nicole Cliffe

@Jane Marie CO-SIGN. And, like @mabissa, it just seemed so rehearsed and faux-dorky.


@gobblegirl Ditto. Thanks Hairpin!


@Jane Marie At least all of the Golden Globes attendees seemed to agree with you (us) based on the cricket-filled silence that followed her "blergh, Tina blah blah blah." Actors know when someone's acting.


@Mabissa My favorite part was when Anne Hathaway interrupted the other dude's speech when he was accepting that other Les Mis award to thank people she forgot about in HER acceptance speech. And then HE zinged her by saying something like, "I haven't forgotten to thank anyone because I haven't begun yet."


@olivebee That was so weeeeird! I was really thrown off by the crickets after "blerg," because it was so nice and fitting. But I guess they could tell it was fake.

It makes me sad because she seemed dorky in Princess Diaries and Ella Enchanted but then she's somehow become a real life Rachel from Glee!


@OhMyGoshYouGuys Yes, what was that about?

Kitty Mittelschmerz@twitter

@Jane Marie She's the blurst.


Where's the like button? I heard Jackie O had one exactly like it.


I have so much love for J-Law and so much annoyance for A. Hath. Also Meryl will be fine. Maybe it will knock her down a few pegs and she'll do something cool like Kramer vs. Kramer again and stop doing crappy biopics where she has a wig and a new funny voice.


If I was Meryl Streep I'd just be like *indulgent chuckle**go back to polishing the 6 million awards I already own*

I think Jennifer Lawrence is adorable, I hope she reads the Hairpin. I think she'd fit right in here!

Nicole Cliffe

I like her too, and I think she is super pretty.


@iceberg exactly. Even if it wasn't a movie reference, I thought it was pretty clear that the joke was self-deprecating (because ladiez must always be self-deprecating!) & obviously playing at the fact that, you know, Meryl has a 580210 awards. It's not like she was gloating over having won over, say, one of her...peers (not sure if that's the right word)


@Nicole Cliffe agreed, and she also seems like she'd be really normal to hang out with, which is what i look for most in celebrities.


@Nicole Cliffe she just seems very real and not awful, which, you know, most people who keep it real are quite awful.


@itiresias Yeah, from interviews I've read/seen, she seems way more grounded and refreshingly honest (and not in that jerky "I'm just telling it like it is" way) than most celebrities. Like she's not putting on a dog-and-pony show 100% of the time.


She's so pretty when I see pictures of her in magazines I show them to my boyfriend and I'm like, "Right!?"

Veronica Lemmons

Oh poor Jennifer. Recently an organization I belong to was scheduling upcoming meetings, and someone said we should refrain from making important decisions for the first 20 minutes because people arrive late sometimes, and I said, "Or we can all make it our *beezwax* to be here." Everyone stared like I was some asshole who says "beezwax." I was quoting "Wet Hot American Summer."


@Veronica Lemmons NEVER apologize for quoting WHAS. NEVER.


@Veronica Lemmons We'll all be in our late twenties by then. I just don't see any reason why we can't be places on time.


@Veronica Lemmons Once I met Paul Rudd and afterwards was like, "I'm gonna write about this in my gournal," (which is also obviously a WHAS quote where he mispronounces it talking to Elizabeth Banks) and not a single person got it. And these were all people who were bigger fans of his than I am. So. I think you're cool!


Oh god, I feel mortified every time I quote something and people don't know what I'm talking about. It's not like I expect everybody to know all the lines from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, but it's not something I can physically stop!


@frigwiggin Then again, it's all made up for every time my boyfriend or I tell the other to "settle down, Beavis."


@frigwiggin Yes, and yes. Only my quotes that no one gets are from Wayne's World and So I Married An Axe Murderer. (Fortunately, my students are on board with my Brian Regan, Mitch Hedberg, and Doctor Who quotes; unfortunately, they know they can derail any conversation by starting any of those quotes as long as it's pertinent.)

@frigwiggin I used to end up quoting "The Sopranos" a lot on these very comment sections. But the lines that my husband and I repeat incessantly ("She must have crawled under there for warmth!") are not the famous ones, as far as I can tell.


@miss buenos aires That one's a classic! Poor Cosette.

miss buenos aires

@LooseBaggyMonster Yay!


@frigwiggin Me tooooooo. It was the worst in college because I wrote my thesis on "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?", a play in which everyone is absolutely wasted the entire time, and every time I had more than one drink, I would start uncontrollably quoting it. No one ever knew that I was quoting something, so I was always waking up and having my roommates be like, "Hahaha, did you know you were DANCING LIKE THE WIND last night?" And I would be like, "UM I WAS QUOTING A V. SERIOUS PLAY. IF I CAN'T DO MY INTERPRETIVE DANCE, I DON'T WANT TO DANCE AT ALL."

miss buenos aires

@Tafadhali After my sister saw the movie (and we saw Kathleen Turner and Bill Irwin do the play on Broadway", she took to saying, "Relax, sink into it. You're no better than anyone else." Whereas I find that references to "Hump the Hostess" come up in daily conversation.


@par_parenthese "Excuse me, miss? There seems to be a mistake. I believe I ordered the *large* cappuccino. *Hello!* Look at the size of this thing."


Hmmm, does the fact that I briefly wondered if these were for real mean that I don't know enough about Jennifer Lawrence or too much? <3 you, JLawie.


@TheLetterL You have a serious First Wives Club deficiency. I prescribe more First Wives Club.


...I am particularly slow on the uptake today. Don't mind me. I will take your prescription.

The Hyperbolic Julia Set

I feel her pain! I am a rather short lady and the other day at work I stood up on a chair to peer over the cubicle wall into a friend's cube but then I was immediately reminded of Elf, so I said "Have you seen these toilets? They're GINORMOUS!!!" only to find out there are A LOT of people at my office (including this dude) who had not seen Elf...


@The Hyperbolic Julia Set A couple of my facebook friends quote Elf year-round to each other, apropos of nothing. It's quite fun to watch.


I love First Wives Club so freaking much!


I honestly can't tell which sounds better:

a) smart-ass Jennifer Lawrence gleefully (but lovingly!) taking Meryl Streep down a peg
b) adorable Jennifer Lawrence quoting the cinema classic First Wives Club

I mean remember Meryl's Oscar speech last year? "When they called my name I’d had this feeling I could hear half of America going 'oh no…oh c’mon…why…her…again?' But whatever." I'm just saying, I cackled a little bit before I got the joke, and then I chortled after I did, and I'm not sure which felt better. Either way, Team Jennifer Lawrence.


@Diana Yes to everything you said!


Totally youtubing all of this when I get home so I can share in the awesome of this!
Was Meryl mad at JLaw or was it all like, off the autocue?

Nevermind, I used my Googling privileges, sorry for the disturbance!

Also, Jennifer Lawrence is the jam.
