We had high hopes for Jennifer Lawrence's performance on Saturday Night Live, but unfortunately she underdelivered. It's OK Jennifer, everyone screws the pooch on occassion. Stand-up comedy isn't up everyone's alley and requires more practice than it may seem. On top of that, the blown-out-of-proportion expectations of the funny girl's skills didn't help her case. Recap below!
She started by bashing all the oscar nominees: "I would never trash-talk any of my fellow nominees at the Golden Globes, but the Oscars are another story."
She seemed a little uncomfortable but some of the jokes landed well: “The alphabet called. They want their letters back.” She exclaimed about Quvenzhané Wallis.
"The Hobbit" skit was more of a success, pointing out the silliness of splitting it into multiple movies. Not original - but enough to make it work.
Overall, Jennifer's performance got better as the night progressed, and she shed her nervousness to bring us some laughter towards the end.
