Fresh off a big Golden Globes win for Best Actress -- in which her "I beat Meryl" "First Wives Club" reference was mistaken for a dig at Meryl Streep -- Jennifer Lawrence kicked off her "Saturday Night Live" hosting duties with a monologue that poked fun at her fellow Oscar nominees.

"I would never trash talk any of my fellow nominees at the Golden Globes, but the Oscars are another story," Lawrence began before dissing each of her Oscar rivals.

"You think you can beat me?" Lawrence said of 9-year-old "Beasts of the Southern Wild" nominee, Quvenzhane Wallis. "Whatchu talkin' bout, Wallis? Also, the alphabet called. They want their letters back."

Lawrence also stepped back into her "Hunger Games" role as Katniss Everdeen for an ESPN-style post-game news conference that included Taran Killam as Peetah.

Killam and Lawrence also joined Bobby Moynihan for Minnesota's ridiculous hip-hop morning show in which Lawrence plays a guest rapper-intern named Busty Rhymes.
