The Hunger Games actress is joined on the stage of Studio 8H by Jason Sudeikis to initially receive and then be robbed of her moment of glory.
Lawrence will be making her first appearance on Saturday Night Live this week, but does have a comedy background due to starring in the sitcom The Bill Engvall Show.
Her appearance on SNL will come just days after she won the 'Best Actress in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical' Golden Globe Award for Silver Linings Playbook.
This weekend's first musical guests will be The Lumineers. The Colorado-based band are promoting their debut self-titled studio album.
Saturday Night Live airs at 11.30/10.30c on NBC.
