| Filed under: Lindsay LohanFilm FlickersSilly!Goldie HawnBette MidlerMeryl StreepGolden GlobesHunger GamesJennifer Lawrence

And no Lindsay Lohan, J-Law wasn't making fun of the beloved actress!


During last night's eventful Golden Globes ceremony, Hunger Games' winning tribute from District 12 AKA Jennifer Lawrence won the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for her role in Silver Linings Playbook

And girl caused confusion during her acceptance speech when she said :

"I beat Meryl [Streep]"

Say whaaaat?!

OH wait!

She wasn't shoving her GG win in Meryl Streep's face, as obviously Meryl wasn't even there to feel burned…

She's securing her place in our hearts as an adorable human being by quoting a line from the AWEsome revenge comedy, The First Wives Club, which stars acting greats Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton!!!!


Clever, witty, AND a fan of 1990s female-power comedies?

ALLLLLLLL the hearts for Jennifer Lawrence!

WATCH The First Wives Club scene that Jennifer is quoting from (below)!

    Meryl was up for an award…Hope Springs!

  2. Sally says – reply to this


    Meryl WAS up for an award, Perez!! Best Actress in a musical or comedy for Hope Springs!

  3. Lucy says – reply to this


    She did beat Meryl, she was nominated in the same category for Hope Springs. You are pretty damn bad at your job there perez.

  4. jjjj says – reply to this


    Meryl Streep was a nomination in that category. Do your homework once in a while.

  5. Assuri says – reply to this


    Except Meryl was nominated…that's why it works. I can't believe this has become such a big deal. NOBODY cares, she joked. Even more brilliant that it's from an ancient fucking movie.

  6. 6

    Uhmmmm Meryl was definitely up for an award in the same category, stop trying to make excuses for this girl, she totally comes off as the type that would bitchily make a snarky comment as such she did last night.

  7. 7

    Anyone that actually thought she was taking "a dig" at Meryl is a fool. Everyone knows Meryl usually wins everything, and it was obviously said in jest.

  8. 8

    She did beat Meryl. Meryl was up for Hope Springs, but I don't think she was being rude or bitchy in any way. I thought it was funny. I think Meryl would think it's funny too. How many other a actresses wouldn't think the same thing? I think that people take things too seriously sometimes.

    Meryl was up for the award you ugly idiot !!! Get your shit straight.

    Tell me, Perez, how does someone like you continue to have a website like this when it's so obvious you have NO clue as to what you're talking about half the time. Meryl Streep WAS nominated, dumbass.

  11. Sofia says – reply to this


    She was against Meryl Streep in that category. I don't think she meant in a bad way though. In another interview that Jennifer did, she admits she still gets starstruck by other celebrities. She then goes on saying how when Meryl Streep walked in the room all she could do was stare and awe at her. She looks up to her and I think when she beat her her at this category. She just well, couldn't believe it and thats the first thing that came to her head, I beat Meryl!

    Right, 10 comments later, I think perez gets it that he made a mistake. Perhaps we can stop dog piling on his mistake and LOOK AT LOHAN'S MISTAKE. Which smacks of complete jealousy and pettiness. It is absolutely in concurrance with her obtuse and unintelligent personality. I can just see Lohan sitting on her mirrored bed, eating bon bons between her sips of vodka and puffing away on her 300th cigarette of the night, turning green with envy that Jennifer Lawrence's career is so stellar while Lohan's is now not only in the crapper - it's been flushed down the drain. Lohan will never have what Lawrence has now - respect, admiration, talent, an Oscar nomination and now - a Golden Globe. And that makes Lohan insanely jealous and angry. And she has no one to thank for this but herself. Lohan could have stayed away from clubs, and drugs and alcohol, and maybe studied her craft (my god, she's a bad actress) and maybe, if she worked very, very, very hard and was professional on set, and arrived on time and never missed a call to set - maybe, just maybe - she might have been invited to the Golden Globes. Of course, she wouldn't have been nominated though - because her talent is limited to heavy breathing, sighs and quick intakes of air much akin to High School acting. Just because she did one film with Streep - doesn't mean she's even an adequate actress now. Jealous, Lohan?

    And I think its rude for some of you to write on here that Perez is a dumbass or that he is bad at his job for making this mistake. First of all everyone makes mistakes. Perez is human. Funny how you are here bashing him but if you think he is so horrible at his job then why are you even looking at his website.

  14. prg says – reply to this


    for god sake she was just kidding stop milking and twsiting it

  15. ittyghost says – reply to this


    He didn't say Meryl wasn't nominated, he said she wasn't THERE. Two different things.

  16. 16

    That's what I thought guys. How drunk were you Perez? I think she was shocked she won over a legend. She was probably thinking she would never beat her. People are making such a big deal about this. I'm talking to you Lindsay. And nice try, but it has nothing to do with that movie.

  17. Johnny Bobby says – reply to this


    People are so quick to bring someone down on the Internet. He obviously has done his homework. Jennifer was quoting the movie. If you watch her acceptance speech, she says, "what does it say? I beat Meryl", which is obviously taken straight from the film. He never says she wasn't nominated, he says Meryl wasn't there, which she wasn't.

  18. Brenda says – reply to this


    Perez just said Meryl wasn't there (what is true! She wasn't present at the GG), not that she wasn't nominated…Please people you gotta read the shit first!

  19. sadie says – reply to this


    ummm Perez never said Meryl wasn't nominated he said she wasn't THERE which is TRUE she was SICK. did no one hear hugh Jackman say "Meryl was supposed to present this award but she's feeling under the weather" ? so yeah. she left.. you”re all dumb and need to calm the fuck down

  20. Angie says – reply to this


    Hey People get a grip. He was RIGHT. Meryl was NOT there, she was home sick with the flu. He never said she wasn't nominated. You should do your homework and actually READ the article before commenting.

  21. Brenda says – reply to this


    Re: paige – Perez just said Meryl wasn't there (what is true! She wasn't present at the GG), not that she wasn't nominated…Please people you gotta read the shit first!

  22. 22

    what a cocky asshole.

  23. Cole says – reply to this


    you guys are all idiotic; Perez wasn't saying that Meryl wasn't nominated he was simply saying she wasn't present at the awards show because of the flu. He knows she was nominated in that category idiots. It's just that when Jennifer Lawrence looks at the golden globe award she pretends to read "I beat Meryl" off of it then chuckles…IT WAS A JOKE, and he knew that Meryl was nominated for that category…thats why the joke works idiots -.-

    Re: justtospeaktruth

    It's no excuse! When Jennifer won at the Critics Choice Awards, she quoted Mean Girls, saying that she wished to break the award and give it to audience.

  25. 25

    Omg nice way to make the changes Perez lol you know damn well it didn't say "wasn't there to feel the burn", before it said: "Meryl obviously wasn't even up for the award" at least make a funny joke about it or something instead of just plainly changing it….so ridiculous (this post probably wont get posted)

    Re: justtospeaktruth
    Thanks for clarifying justtospeakthetruth!!
    And now let's file all of this under Much Ado About Nothing.

    She can do or say whatever the f**k she wants because she is just flawless ok???
    'nough said

  28. EK says – reply to this


    Perez didn't say Meryl wasn't nominated… he said she wasn't THERE. But either way, Jennifer is such a cool person. Anyone who took it seriously clearly is just plain ridiculous.

  29. jla says – reply to this


    You dumbasses he watched the show….obviously Perez Knows Meryl was nominated in the same category but he was stating that JLAW's speech was given as a double entendre. Wow the demographic on this page is even too clueless for a gossip blog

  30. 30

    OK, that's fucking funny. Love her.

  31. Unitrin says – reply to this


    Since people are giving Perez a hard time I somewhat reluctantly add that the actually quote from Lawrence was- "What does this say: I beat Meryl." The main point is correct. It was a direct reference to First Wives Club.

  32. CC says – reply to this


    Love you Jennifer!!!! I want you and Emma Stone to be besties!!!!

  33. Poop says – reply to this


    That's bullshit Perez, it had nothing to do with First Wives Club

  34. 34

    Okay, you beat Meryl … now. But highly doubtful you will have as long and brilliant a career in film as Meryl Streep. And poor taste, even if a joke, to say you "beat" another actress.

  35. 35

    Perez makes mistakes. And he made one in this post, THEN he corrected it. He said she was not nominated at first, and after seeing all the comments, he corrected it. No one's dumb, stupid. And if you're a regular on here you would notice he does this sometimes.

  36. sammy says – reply to this


    guys, he never said she wasn't nominated-he said that she wasn't there. which she wasn't. she had the flu so she stayed home.

  37. sammi says – reply to this


    Re: Lucy – he never said she wasn't up for an award… he said she wasn't there. which she wasn't. she was sick, so she stayed home.

  38. Polo says – reply to this


    Perez merely said that Meryl was not there which is true. He did not say that she was not nominated. There is nothing wrong with his article.

  39. Diana says – reply to this


    I'm sure a lot of you who watched it will remember Lawrence saying something like 'what does it say? (towards the award) I beat Meryl' which is the quote from The First Wives Club. Also, he didn't write that Meryl wasn't up for the nomination he just wrote that she was absent which is true.
    I wish the people insulting him telling him to do his homework would do theirs too.

  40. qwerty says – reply to this


    Re: paige – No, he meant she wasn't AT the show. She had the flu.

  41. tadge says – reply to this


    It was a quote from the first wives club too! I like j law, she's talented and winters Bone was an amazing movie. Yo commenters need. To calm the f@@k down! So you lot don't make mistakes ?

    rili ashaming 4 a celebritt…@tyra

  43. Hazel says – reply to this


    I thought the joke was funny. Yes meryl was nominated and she wasn't there coz she was ill but i think Meryl would have laughed at the joke too.

  44. alex says – reply to this


    Re: Poop

  45. john says – reply to this


    Re: laurajon1
    It was clever and very funny, but not to stupid people like you and lindsay lohan. btw it was a JOKE, a quote from the first wives club. want proof? watch jennifer lawrence on davis letterman 2013. just becuz YOUR a stick in the mud can't take a joke bitch does not mean she is not gonna have an amazing career just cuz you proclaim it so. but maybe ur rite maybe some awful will happen i don't know but you don't know either asshole. only time will tell. Also the only thing in 'poor taste' was YOU. next time before you open your big blow job working mouth do some research.

  46. Gigi says – reply to this


    All of you who are currently criticizing Perez for not knowing that Meryl was nominated obviously have ZERO reading comprehension skills. Perez stated, "Meryl wasn't even there to feel burned…" Dumbasses.
