Ellen DeGeneres Teases Jennifer Lawrence in Opening Monologue


Ellen DeGeneres kicked off her Oscars monologue with jokes directed at the one person who is constantly entertaining us, Supporting Actress nominee Jennifer Lawrence.

After saying she wouldn’t bring up last year when Jennifer tripped while accepting her award for Best Actress, Ellen then, well, brings it up.

“It’s ridiculous,” Ellen told her. “People just talk about it … For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about … last year, she fell on the way up. Let’s just show the clip” … but she was just kidding.

Ellen then tells Jennifer that she won’t bring up the fact that she once again fell on the red carpet earlier in the night. And you guessed it, she does anyway!

“If you win tonight, I think we should bring you the Oscar,” the comedian joked. Watch the exchange”
