Jennifer Lawrence caught some grief at the Golden Globes for her Meryl Streep comment, but the gloves came off for her Oscar rivals in her hilarious “Saturday Night Live” monologue.

Lawrence won a Golden Globe for her performance in “Silver Linings Playbook,” for which she’s also up for an Oscar.

In her Globes acceptance speech, she giggled: “What does this say, I beat Meryl.” It was an obvious joke. The line is from the 1996 film “The First Wives Club.” But not everyone got it.

“I would never trash talk any of my fellow nominees at the Golden Globes. But the Oscars are another story,” she said. “Ladies I love you all, but you’re about to get served.”

Then the 22-year-old actress tore into her rivals.

Well, well, well, look who it is, Jessica Chastain,” she said as a photo of the actress appeared on screen “More like Jessica Chas… ain’t winning no Oscar on my watch.”

“In ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ you caught [Osama] bin Laden. In ‘Winter’s Bone’ I caught a squirrel… and ate it! Boom! Deal with that.”

Next up Naomi Watts, nominated for her role in “The Impossible.” “You were in ‘The Impossible;’ know what else is impossible? You beating me on Oscar Night. Naomi what’s her problem? She’s gonna lose on Oscar night.”

She also did a hilarious riff on Tommie Lee Jones, who sat stone-faced during a Globes routine by co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler that cracked everyone else up.
